The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cognitive psychology, Working memory, Short-term memory, Cognition and Recall. His studies deal with areas such as Cognitive development, Selective attention, Verbal learning and Memory rehearsal as well as Cognitive psychology. His Working memory study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Social psychology, Visual memory, Cognitive science, Chunking and Attentional control.
His Short-term memory study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sensory memory, Visual short-term memory, Memory span, Visual perception and Artificial intelligence. His Cognition research includes themes of Developmental psychology and Perception. His research integrates issues of Pronunciation and Spatial cognition in his study of Recall.
His primary scientific interests are in Cognitive psychology, Working memory, Short-term memory, Cognition and Recall. The Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Memory span, Verbal memory and Visual short-term memory, Visual memory. His Working memory research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cognitive development, Visual perception, Cognitive science and Chunking, Artificial intelligence.
In his study, Audiology is strongly linked to Developmental psychology, which falls under the umbrella field of Short-term memory. Cognition connects with themes related to Perception in his study. His work carried out in the field of Recall brings together such families of science as Covert and Mnemonic.
Nelson Cowan spends much of his time researching Working memory, Cognitive psychology, Short-term memory, Cognitive science and Cognition. His Working memory study combines topics in areas such as Recall, Encoding, Stimulus, Forgetting and Visual perception. His work deals with themes such as Interference theory and Anterograde amnesia, Amnesia, which intersect with Forgetting.
Nelson Cowan has included themes like Nonverbal communication, Sample and Dyslexia in his Cognitive psychology study. Nelson Cowan focuses mostly in the field of Short-term memory, narrowing it down to matters related to Set and, in some cases, Common ground. His specific area of interest is Cognition, where Nelson Cowan studies Cognitive development.
His primary areas of study are Working memory, Cognitive psychology, Short-term memory, Dyslexia and Cognition. His work in the fields of Baddeley's model of working memory overlaps with other areas such as Consolidation. His Cognitive psychology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Control.
Nelson Cowan combines subjects such as Variety, Memory span, Recall and Cognitive science with his study of Short-term memory. As a part of the same scientific family, Nelson Cowan mostly works in the field of Dyslexia, focusing on Phonology and, on occasion, Spatial ability. His study in the fields of Stroop effect and Inhibitory control under the domain of Cognition overlaps with other disciplines such as Behavioral inhibition and Alcohol.
