Van Dam examines in his Cognitive psychology study include Uncertainty reduction theory, Selective attention and Prefrontal cortex.
His study in Cognition focuses on Attentional control in particular. His Psychometrics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Schizotypy and Depression. His work in Psychotherapist is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Transcendental meditation.
Nicholas T. Van Dam mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Mindfulness, Anxiety, Cognition and Resting state fMRI. His Neuroscience study which covers Autism that intersects with Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale and Gyrus. Psychotherapist covers Nicholas T. Van Dam research in Mindfulness.
His Anxiety research includes elements of Developmental psychology, Ventromedial prefrontal cortex and Amygdala. In Cognition, Nicholas T. Van Dam works on issues like Cognitive psychology, which are connected to Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Selective attention and Uncertainty reduction theory. His Resting state fMRI research incorporates elements of Multivariate analysis and Categorization.
His main research concerns Mindfulness, Amygdala, Neuroscience, Brain activity and meditation and Internal medicine. His Mindfulness research integrates issues from Attentional control, Psychometrics, Personality and Electroencephalography. His Electroencephalography research incorporates themes from Working memory, Alpha, Sensory stimulation therapy and Distraction.
Nicholas T. Van Dam has researched Amygdala in several fields, including Developmental psychology, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Prefrontal cortex and Anxiety. His Anxiety study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Functional near-infrared spectroscopy, Default mode network, Task-positive network and Set. His work on Case-control study, Young adult and Disease is typically connected to Suicide attempt as part of general Internal medicine study, connecting several disciplines of science.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Major depressive disorder, Resting state fMRI, Major depressive episode and Mood disorders. His study on Young adult, Case-control study, Disease and Risk factor is often connected to Suicide attempt as part of broader study in Internal medicine. The study incorporates disciplines such as Posterior cingulate, Reward system and Oncology in addition to Major depressive disorder.
