Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Schizophrenia

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Schizophrenia, Psychosis, Magnetic resonance imaging and Audiology. His work deals with themes such as White matter and Diffusion MRI, which intersect with Neuroscience. Robert W. McCarley combines subjects such as Frontal lobe, Disease and Event-related potential with his study of Schizophrenia.

His Psychosis study combines topics in areas such as Superior temporal gyrus, Gyrus, First episode, Grey matter and Laterality. His Magnetic resonance imaging research integrates issues from Hippocampal formation, Internal medicine, Cerebrospinal fluid, Central nervous system and Cardiology. His Audiology research incorporates elements of Middle temporal gyrus, Verbal memory, Prefrontal cortex and Wisconsin Card Sorting Test.

His most cited work include:

  • Biological insights from 108 schizophrenia-associated genetic loci (4834 citations)
  • A review of MRI findings in schizophrenia (1983 citations)
  • Hyperactivity and hyperconnectivity of the default network in schizophrenia and in first-degree relatives of persons with schizophrenia (1064 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Schizophrenia, Audiology, Psychosis and Internal medicine. His studies deal with areas such as White matter and Magnetic resonance imaging as well as Neuroscience. As a member of one scientific family, Robert W. McCarley mostly works in the field of Schizophrenia, focusing on Cognition and, on occasion, Cognitive psychology.

His Audiology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Stimulus, Working memory and Electrophysiology. He has included themes like First episode, Superior temporal gyrus, Prefrontal cortex and Grey matter in his Psychosis study. His Internal medicine research incorporates themes from Endocrinology and Cardiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (52.56%)
  • Schizophrenia (38.76%)
  • Audiology (26.54%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (52.56%)
  • Schizophrenia (38.76%)
  • Audiology (26.54%)

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

Neuroscience, Schizophrenia, Audiology, Psychosis and Psychiatry are his primary areas of study. His research links Diffusion MRI with Neuroscience. He interconnects Internal medicine, Magnetic resonance imaging and Prefrontal cortex, Cognition in the investigation of issues within Schizophrenia.

His Audiology study incorporates themes from Mismatch negativity, Gamma band, Electroencephalography, Working memory and Developmental psychology. His work carried out in the field of Psychosis brings together such families of science as Young adult, Clinical psychology and Age of onset. His work on First episode as part of his general Psychiatry study is frequently connected to In patient, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Biological insights from 108 schizophrenia-associated genetic loci (4834 citations)
  • Control of Sleep and Wakefulness (761 citations)
  • Modeling Linkage Disequilibrium Increases Accuracy of Polygenic Risk Scores (575 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition

Robert W. McCarley mostly deals with Neuroscience, Schizophrenia, Audiology, Diffusion MRI and White matter. His Schizophrenia study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Genome-wide association study, Neuropsychology, Corpus callosum, Internal medicine and Magnetic resonance imaging. The study incorporates disciplines such as Endocrinology and Cardiology in addition to Internal medicine.

The various areas that Robert W. McCarley examines in his Audiology study include Electroencephalography, Psychosis, First episode, Developmental psychology and Gray. As part of one scientific family, Robert W. McCarley deals mainly with the area of Electroencephalography, narrowing it down to issues related to the Cognition, and often Cognitive psychology. His work on White matter abnormalities and Superior longitudinal fasciculus as part of general White matter study is frequently linked to In patient, bridging the gap between disciplines.
