Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine

Predrag Petrovic spends much of his time researching Cognition, Neuroscience, Cognitive psychology, Anterior cingulate cortex and Brain activity and meditation. His study in the field of Orbitofrontal cortex and Working memory is also linked to topics like Pain processing and Modulation. His work on Ventromedial prefrontal cortex and Functional magnetic resonance imaging is typically connected to Periaqueductal gray as part of general Neuroscience study, connecting several disciplines of science.

His Cognitive psychology research incorporates elements of Neuropsychological assessment, Neuropsychology, Cognitive flexibility, Functional neuroimaging and Visual cortex. He integrates many fields in his works, including Anterior cingulate cortex, Placebo and Nocebo. His Brain activity and meditation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Oxytocin and Prosocial behavior.

His most cited work include:

  • Placebo and opioid analgesia - Imaging a shared neuronal network (1204 citations)
  • When Fear Is Near: Threat Imminence Elicits Prefrontal-Periaqueductal Gray Shifts in Humans (607 citations)
  • Pain-related cerebral activation is altered by a distracting cognitive task (371 citations)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Clinical psychology, Cognitive psychology, Cognition and Amygdala. His work in Orbitofrontal cortex, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Anterior cingulate cortex, Bipolar disorder and Functional imaging are all subfields of Neuroscience research. The Functional magnetic resonance imaging study combines topics in areas such as Brain activity and meditation and Prefrontal cortex, Ventromedial prefrontal cortex.

His Clinical psychology study incorporates themes from Empathy, Subclinical infection and Anxiety. His Cognitive psychology research focuses on Functional neuroimaging and how it connects with Brain mapping. His work deals with themes such as Sleep deprivation, Sleep in non-human animals and Audiology, which intersect with Cognition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (29.66%)
  • Clinical psychology (25.42%)
  • Cognitive psychology (20.34%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Clinical psychology (25.42%)
  • Cognition (14.41%)
  • Affect (7.63%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Clinical psychology, Cognition, Affect, Neuroscience and Sleep deprivation. His Clinical psychology research integrates issues from Empathy, Subclinical infection, Comorbidity and Executive functions. His Empathy study also includes fields such as

  • Insular cortex, which have a strong connection to Thalamus and Insula,
  • Functional magnetic resonance imaging and related Sleep restriction.

His Affect research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cognitive reappraisal, Cognitive psychology and Psychological resilience. His study on Amygdala, Bipolar disorder and Orbitofrontal cortex is often connected to Amphetamine dependence as part of broader study in Neuroscience. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cognitive skill, Audiology and Stroop effect in addition to Sleep deprivation.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Longitudinal Cortical Thickness Changes in Bipolar Disorder and the Relationship to Genetic Risk, Mania, and Lithium Use. (12 citations)
  • Distinct brain structure and behavior related to ADHD and conduct disorder traits (11 citations)
  • Do borderline personality disorder and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder co-aggregate in families? A population-based study of 2 million Swedes. (10 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Psychiatry

His primary areas of study are Borderline personality disorder, Confidence interval, Clinical psychology, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and Cognition. The concepts of his Clinical psychology study are interwoven with issues in Working memory, Anterior cingulate cortex and Comorbidity. His studies in Cognition integrate themes in fields like Psychosis, Hippocampus and Connectome.

His Neurocognitive study improves the overall literature in Neuroscience. His research on Neuroscience frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Emotional regulation. As a part of the same scientific family, Predrag Petrovic mostly works in the field of Sleep deprivation, focusing on Cognitive psychology and, on occasion, Sleep restriction.
