Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Perception

Sophie K. Scott mainly focuses on Speech perception, Neuroscience, Cognitive psychology, Temporal cortex and Auditory cortex. Her Speech perception research is within the category of Perception. Her Cognitive psychology research includes themes of Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Facial expression, Brain mapping and Disgust.

Her studies deal with areas such as Lateralization of brain function, Wernicke's area, Prefrontal cortex and Phonetics as well as Auditory cortex. Sophie K. Scott focuses mostly in the field of Audiology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Dyslexia and, in certain cases, Frontal lobe. Her Neurocomputational speech processing research includes elements of Motor theory of speech perception and Superior temporal sulcus.

Her most cited work include:

  • Maps and streams in the auditory cortex: nonhuman primates illuminate human speech processing. (1166 citations)
  • Identification of a pathway for intelligible speech in the left temporal lobe (949 citations)
  • The neuroanatomical and functional organization of speech perception (583 citations)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Cognitive psychology, Speech perception, Perception, Neuroscience and Speech recognition. Sophie K. Scott interconnects Nonverbal communication, Working memory, Cognition, Facial expression and Laughter in the investigation of issues within Cognitive psychology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Intelligibility, Audiology, Auditory cortex and Functional imaging in addition to Speech perception.

Her research investigates the connection with Intelligibility and areas like Superior temporal sulcus which intersect with concerns in Temporal cortex. Her Auditory cortex research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Lateralization of brain function, Superior temporal gyrus, Brain mapping and Speech processing. Her Perception research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Stimulus, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Speech production and Cognitive science.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (39.56%)
  • Speech perception (25.33%)
  • Perception (24.89%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Cognitive psychology (39.56%)
  • Perception (24.89%)
  • Laughter (7.56%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Cognitive psychology, Perception, Laughter, Nonverbal communication and Audiology. Her Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Identity and Arousal. Her studies in Perception integrate themes in fields like Functional imaging, Communication and Auditory cortex.

Her study in Auditory cortex is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Superior temporal gyrus, Primate, Cortex and Neurocomputational speech processing. She has included themes like Alertness, Psychiatry, Neglect, Cognition and Perceptual Masking in her Audiology study. Her research integrates issues of Lateralization of brain function and Cognitive science in her study of Speech perception.

Between 2014 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Roles of Supplementary Motor Areas in Auditory Processing and Auditory Imagery (93 citations)
  • Musicians and non-musicians are equally adept at perceiving masked speech (76 citations)
  • Distinct processing of ambiguous speech in people with non-clinical auditory verbal hallucinations. (45 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Perception

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Cognitive psychology, Perception, Audiology, Auditory perception and Nonverbal communication. Her Cognitive psychology research incorporates themes from Identity and Speech perception. Her study on Audiology also encompasses disciplines like

  • Psychiatry that intertwine with fields like Brain mapping and Young adult,
  • Cognition that connect with fields like Sadness, Music psychology, Anger, Facial expression and Amusia.

Her work carried out in the field of Auditory perception brings together such families of science as Auditory imagery, Communication, Supplementary motor area and Auditory cortex. The concepts of her Nonverbal communication study are interwoven with issues in Valence, Social psychology and Laughter. Her research investigates the connection between Lateralization of brain function and topics such as Neurocomputational speech processing that intersect with problems in Perceptual Masking.
