Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Cognitive psychology

Cognitive psychology, Episodic memory, Neuroscience, Semantic memory and Cognition are his primary areas of study. He has researched Cognitive psychology in several fields, including Semantics and Visual perception, Perception. His studies in Episodic memory integrate themes in fields like Neural correlates of consciousness, Autobiographical memory, Temporal lobe and Frontal regions.

His Neuroscience and Long-term memory, Neuroanatomy of memory, Memory consolidation, Posterior parietal cortex and Hippocampus investigations all form part of his Neuroscience research activities. His Semantic memory research includes elements of Retrograde amnesia, Cognitive science and Spatial memory. His research investigates the connection between Cognition and topics such as Semantic similarity that intersect with problems in Emotional arousal, Negative emotion and Emotional valence.

His most cited work include:

  • Memory consolidation, retrograde amnesia and the hippocampal complex (1409 citations)
  • Hemispheric encoding/retrieval asymmetry in episodic memory: positron emission tomography findings (1352 citations)
  • Aging and autobiographical memory: dissociating episodic from semantic retrieval. (884 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cognitive psychology, Episodic memory, Neuroscience, Recall and Cognition. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Developmental psychology, Long-term memory, Perception and Explicit memory. His research in Episodic memory intersects with topics in Autobiographical memory, Semantic memory, Temporal lobe and Spatial memory.

Within one scientific family, Morris Moscovitch focuses on topics pertaining to Retrograde amnesia under Neuroscience, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Anterograde amnesia. His Recall study combines topics in areas such as Content-addressable memory and Encoding. His research integrates issues of Semantics and Cognitive science in his study of Cognition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (57.58%)
  • Episodic memory (29.62%)
  • Neuroscience (27.73%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Cognitive psychology (57.58%)
  • Neuroscience (27.73%)
  • Episodic memory (29.62%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience, Episodic memory, Recall and Hippocampus. The concepts of his Cognitive psychology study are interwoven with issues in Spatial memory, Ventromedial prefrontal cortex and Spatial contextual awareness. His Neuroscience study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Context and Dorsum.

His work carried out in the field of Episodic memory brings together such families of science as Functional connectivity, Similarity, Cognitive science, Prefrontal cortex and Semantic memory. Morris Moscovitch has included themes like Valence, Spatial ability and Encoding in his Recall study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Content-addressable memory and Perception in addition to Hippocampus.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The hippocampus and related neocortical structures in memory transformation. (99 citations)
  • Multiple Scales of Representation along the Hippocampal Anteroposterior Axis in Humans (86 citations)
  • Details, gist and schema: hippocampal–neocortical interactions underlying recent and remote episodic and spatial memory (83 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Cognitive psychology

Morris Moscovitch spends much of his time researching Episodic memory, Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive science and Cognition. His Episodic memory study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Developmental psychology, Similarity, Prefrontal cortex and Perception. His study looks at the relationship between Perception and topics such as Semantic memory, which overlap with Optimal distinctiveness theory.

His Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Brain activity and meditation and Ventromedial prefrontal cortex. Morris Moscovitch studied Cognitive science and Cognitive neuroscience that intersect with Neuroimaging, Neuropsychology and Neural correlates of consciousness. His Cognition research focuses on subjects like Resting state fMRI, which are linked to Interpretation, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Default mode network and Temporal cortex.
