2016 - NAS Award in the Neurosciences, U.S. National Academy of Sciences For fundamental contributions to understanding the functional organization of the primate brain, including discovery of the visual functions of inferior temporal cortex, the role of the dorsal and ventral visual pathways in spatial and object processing, and anatomical descriptions of cognitive and non-cognitive memory systems.

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Amygdala, Cortex, Hippocampus and Temporal lobe. His Neuroscience study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Amnesia. His research investigates the connection between Amygdala and topics such as Stimulus that intersect with issues in Experimental psychology, Short-term memory and Orbitofrontal cortex.
His study in Cortex is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Frontal lobe, Posterior parietal cortex, Anatomy and Auditory cortex. Mortimer Mishkin combines subjects such as Occipital lobe, Somatosensory system, Extrastriate cortex and Sensory system with his study of Anatomy. His Hippocampus research incorporates themes from White matter, Temporal stem, Working memory, Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and Ventromedial prefrontal cortex.
His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Temporal lobe, Hippocampus, Anatomy and Recognition memory. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Amnesia and Neuroscience. His Temporal lobe course of study focuses on Lesion and Central nervous system.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Somatosensory system, Auditory cortex, Sensory system, Visual system and Superior temporal sulcus. The Recognition memory study which covers Audiology that intersects with Stimulus. His research in Amygdala intersects with topics in Rhinal cortex, Temporal cortex and Limbic system.
Neuroscience, Macaque, Working memory, Cognitive psychology and Stimulus are his primary areas of study. His is involved in several facets of Neuroscience study, as is seen by his studies on Cortex, Hippocampal formation, Temporal lobe, Spatial memory and Temporal cortex. His work in Cortex addresses issues such as Anatomy, which are connected to fields such as Core auditory cortex and Temporal pole.
His studies in Hippocampal formation integrate themes in fields like Hippocampus and Atrophy. His Working memory research integrates issues from Long-term memory and Auditory perception. Mortimer Mishkin interconnects Cognitive science, Cognitivism and Echoic memory in the investigation of issues within Cognitive psychology.
His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Macaque, Hippocampal formation, Auditory cortex and Mnemonic. His studies link Communication with Neuroscience. His work in Macaque covers topics such as Electroencephalography which are related to areas like Cortical surface, Electrophysiology and Cerebral cortex.
His Hippocampal formation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Verbal learning, Amnesia, Episodic memory, Hippocampus and Atrophy. His work on Tonotopy as part of general Auditory cortex study is frequently linked to Differential coding, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Mnemonic research focuses on Auditory perception and how it connects with Cognitive psychology.
