What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience

Her primary scientific interests are in Aerobic exercise, Neuroscience, Cognition, Hippocampal formation and Brain-derived neurotrophic factor. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Physical fitness, Exercise physiology, Sensory system and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. In general Neuroscience, her work in Spatial memory, Stroop effect and Prefrontal cortex is often linked to Precentral gyrus and Voxel-based morphometry linking many areas of study.

Her studies in Cognition integrate themes in fields like Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Human brain. Ruchika Shaurya Prakash has included themes like Hippocampus and Dementia in her Hippocampal formation study. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor is intertwined with Endocrinology, Caudate nucleus and Internal medicine in her research.

Her most cited work include:

  • Exercise training increases size of hippocampus and improves memory (2557 citations)
  • Aerobic Exercise Training Increases Brain Volume in Aging Humans (1429 citations)
  • Aerobic fitness is associated with hippocampal volume in elderly humans (717 citations)

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

Cognition, Neuroscience, Mindfulness, Cognitive psychology and Aerobic exercise are her primary areas of study. Her Cognition research incorporates elements of Developmental psychology, Randomized controlled trial, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Cognitive decline. Her research in Mindfulness intersects with topics in Cognitive rehabilitation therapy, Working memory, Disposition and Mediation.

The Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Cognitive training, Attentional control, Connectome and Functional magnetic resonance imaging. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Aerobic exercise, Cardiorespiratory fitness and Neurocognitive is strongly linked to Physical fitness. Her Hippocampal formation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Caudate nucleus, Hippocampus and Dementia.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cognition (57.14%)
  • Neuroscience (22.62%)
  • Mindfulness (21.43%)

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

  • Mindfulness (21.43%)
  • Cognition (57.14%)
  • Randomized controlled trial (11.90%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Mindfulness, Cognition, Randomized controlled trial, Attentional control and Working memory. The various areas that she examines in her Mindfulness study include Cognitive rehabilitation therapy, Cognitive training and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. Her Cognition study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Alzheimer's disease, Neuroimaging and Cognitive decline.

Internal medicine covers Ruchika Shaurya Prakash research in Randomized controlled trial. Ruchika Shaurya Prakash combines subjects such as Young adult, Cognitive psychology and Connectome with her study of Attentional control. Her research investigates the connection with Working memory and areas like Multiple sclerosis which intersect with concerns in Artificial intelligence, Neural correlates of consciousness and Machine learning.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Improving Methodological Standards in Behavioral Interventions for Cognitive Enhancement (60 citations)
  • Supplementation with eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid reduces high levels of circulating proinflammatory cytokines in aging adults: A randomized, controlled study. (24 citations)
  • Connectome-based models predict attentional control in aging adults. (22 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry

Her primary areas of investigation include Cognition, Randomized controlled trial, Mindfulness, Connectome and Cognitive psychology. She is studying Cognitive skill, which is a component of Cognition. She interconnects Cognitive training, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Neuropsychology and Working memory, Short-term memory in the investigation of issues within Randomized controlled trial.

Her Mindfulness research includes elements of Intervention, Physical fitness, Insula and Neural mechanisms of mindfulness meditation. Her research integrates issues of Young adult, Neurocognitive, Attentional control and Generalizability theory in her study of Connectome. Ruchika Shaurya Prakash regularly ties together related areas like Default mode network in her Cognitive psychology studies.
