Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience

Roel M. Willems spends much of his time researching Cognitive psychology, Premotor cortex, Cognitive neuroscience, Embodied cognition and Lexical decision task. The Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Motor system, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Inferior frontal gyrus, Neuroscience and Comprehension. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Insular cortex, Cognitive science, Levels-of-processing effect, Spoken language and Brain mapping.

His Cognitive neuroscience research includes elements of Sign language, Nonverbal communication and Gesture recognition. Roel M. Willems usually deals with Embodied cognition and limits it to topics linked to Verb and Semantics, Speech perception, Sentence and Meaning. He interconnects Cued speech and Mental image in the investigation of issues within Lexical decision task.

His most cited work include:

  • Neural evidence for the interplay between language, gesture, and action: A review (295 citations)
  • Complementary systems for understanding action intentions (286 citations)
  • When Language Meets Action: The Neural Integration of Gesture and Speech (276 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cognitive psychology, Narrative, Cognitive science, Comprehension and Reading. The study incorporates disciplines such as Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Cognition, Cognitive neuroscience and Embodied cognition in addition to Cognitive psychology. His work carried out in the field of Embodied cognition brings together such families of science as Semantics, Meaning, Verb and Mental image.

His Narrative research includes themes of Perspective-taking, Neuroscience and Aesthetics. His research integrates issues of Broca's area, Context and Syntax in his study of Cognitive science. He has included themes like Language model and Event-related potential in his Comprehension study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (54.55%)
  • Narrative (23.38%)
  • Cognitive science (24.03%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Reading (20.78%)
  • Narrative (23.38%)
  • Cognitive psychology (54.55%)

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

Reading, Narrative, Cognitive psychology, Context and Eye tracking are his primary areas of study. His Reading research incorporates elements of Developmental psychology, Fantasy, Grammar and Mental image. His study in Narrative is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Computational linguistics, Neuroimaging, Neuroscience, Eye movement and Language processing in the brain.

Mentalization is the focus of his Cognitive psychology research. The concepts of his Context study are interwoven with issues in Stimulus and Storytelling. His Eye tracking research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Absorption and Sensory system.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Grounding the neurobiology of language in first principles: The necessity of non-language-centric explanations for language comprehension. (50 citations)
  • The Fictive Brain: Neurocognitive Correlates of Engagement in Literature: (25 citations)
  • Mental Simulation during Literary Reading: Individual Differences Revealed with Eye-Tracking (16 citations)

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

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience, Context, Narrative and Social cognition. His work on Mentalization as part of general Cognitive psychology study is frequently linked to Order, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. He has researched Neuroscience in several fields, including On Language and Focus.

His Context study incorporates themes from Common ground and Comprehension. His study in the fields of Storytelling under the domain of Narrative overlaps with other disciplines such as Science communication, Dissemination, Science outreach and Scientific journalism. Social cognition and Open data are two areas of study in which Roel M. Willems engages in interdisciplinary work.
