Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Psychiatry

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cognition, Neuropsychology, Virtual reality, Cognitive psychology and Psychiatry. His study on Cognition is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Developmental psychology. Thomas D. Parsons works in the field of Neuropsychology, namely Neuropsychological assessment.

His Virtual reality study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Rehabilitation, Neurocognitive, Social psychology and Distraction. His work investigates the relationship between Cognitive psychology and topics such as Executive functions that intersect with problems in Verbal fluency test. His work in the fields of Exposure therapy and Neuropsychological test overlaps with other areas such as Military deployment, Terrorism and Active duty.

His most cited work include:

  • Affective outcomes of virtual reality exposure therapy for anxiety and specific phobias: a meta-analysis. (585 citations)
  • The prevalence and incidence of neurocognitive impairment in the HAART era. (501 citations)
  • Cognitive sequelae of subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation in Parkinson's disease: a meta-analysis (369 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Virtual reality, Neuropsychology, Cognitive psychology, Cognition and Neuropsychological assessment. His Virtual reality research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Rehabilitation, Exposure therapy and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Executive functions, Developmental psychology, Clinical psychology, Neurocognitive and Clinical neuropsychology in addition to Neuropsychology.

His Cognitive psychology research incorporates themes from Affective computing, Stroop effect, Social psychology and Ecological validity. His Cognition study often links to related topics such as Affect. His study looks at the relationship between Neuropsychological assessment and fields such as Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virtual reality (29.57%)
  • Neuropsychology (21.74%)
  • Cognitive psychology (21.30%)

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

  • Neuropsychology (21.74%)
  • Virtual reality (29.57%)
  • Cognitive psychology (21.30%)

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

Thomas D. Parsons mainly focuses on Neuropsychology, Virtual reality, Cognitive psychology, Neuropsychological assessment and Engineering ethics. His work carried out in the field of Neuropsychology brings together such families of science as Clinical neuropsychology, Ecology and Ecological validity. His Ecological validity study is focused on Cognition in general.

Virtual reality is a primary field of his research addressed under Human–computer interaction. Thomas D. Parsons has included themes like Inhibitory control, Moderation, Meta-analysis, Virtual classroom and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in his Cognitive psychology study. The concepts of his Neuropsychological assessment study are interwoven with issues in Internal medicine, Neuropsychological test, Blood based biomarkers and Clinical psychology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Practice parameters facilitating adoption of advanced technologies for enhancing neuropsychological assessment paradigms (37 citations)
  • An ecological measure to screen executive functioning in MS: the Picture Interpretation Test (PIT) 360°. (12 citations)
  • A Comparison of Virtual Reality Classroom Continuous Performance Tests to Traditional Continuous Performance Tests in Delineating ADHD: a Meta-Analysis (11 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Neuroscience

His primary areas of investigation include Neuropsychology, Cognitive psychology, Virtual reality, Everyday activities and Stroop effect. His Neuropsychology study incorporates themes from Test, Ecology, Disease and Clinical neuropsychology. His Cognitive psychology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Modality and Autism spectrum disorder.

His work deals with themes such as Communication, Moderation, Meta-analysis, Virtual classroom and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, which intersect with Virtual reality. His Stroop effect research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ecological validity and Inhibitory control. In his research on the topic of Inhibitory control, Neurocognitive is strongly related with Social psychology.
