What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Cognition, Frontal lobe and Impulsivity. Dopamine, Working memory, Basal ganglia, Orbitofrontal cortex and Nucleus accumbens are the primary areas of interest in his Neuroscience study. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Prefrontal cortex, Stimulus is strongly linked to Cognitive flexibility.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Cognition, Parkinson's disease are connected with Dementia and Central nervous system disease and other disciplines. His Frontal lobe research incorporates themes from Schizophrenia, Temporal lobe, Audiology and Spatial memory. His Impulsivity research also works with subjects such as

  • Addiction which intersects with area such as Developmental psychology and Drug,
  • Serial reaction time, which have a strong connection to Lesion.

His most cited work include:

  • Neural systems of reinforcement for drug addiction: from actions to habits to compulsion (2820 citations)
  • Inhibition and the right inferior frontal cortex. (2389 citations)
  • Stop-signal inhibition disrupted by damage to right inferior frontal gyrus in humans. (1372 citations)

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

Neuroscience, Cognition, Prefrontal cortex, Impulsivity and Psychiatry are his primary areas of study. His work is connected to Dopamine, Nucleus accumbens, Basal ganglia, Stimulus and Orbitofrontal cortex, as a part of Neuroscience. His Nucleus accumbens study combines topics in areas such as Amphetamine and Ventral striatum.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Developmental psychology, Cognitive psychology and Audiology in addition to Cognition. Trevor W. Robbins has researched Prefrontal cortex in several fields, including Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Frontal lobe, Brain mapping and Cognitive flexibility. In his research on the topic of Impulsivity, Substance abuse is strongly related with Addiction.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (48.86%)
  • Cognition (22.39%)
  • Prefrontal cortex (18.22%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (48.86%)
  • Cognition (22.39%)
  • Impulsivity (14.54%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Cognition, Impulsivity, Psychiatry and Clinical psychology. His Neuroscience study focuses mostly on Prefrontal cortex, Orbitofrontal cortex, Addiction, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Dopaminergic. He has included themes like Developmental psychology and Cognitive psychology in his Cognition study.

His Impulsivity study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Neuropsychology. His work on Mental health as part of general Psychiatry research is frequently linked to Research centre, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Clinical psychology research integrates issues from Schizophrenia and Anxiety.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Drug Addiction: Updating Actions to Habits to Compulsions Ten Years On (514 citations)
  • A consensus guide to capturing the ability to inhibit actions and impulsive behaviors in the stop-signal task (270 citations)
  • Fractionating impulsivity: neuropsychiatric implications (240 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience

Trevor W. Robbins mostly deals with Neuroscience, Impulsivity, Cognition, Addiction and Prefrontal cortex. The various areas that Trevor W. Robbins examines in his Neuroscience study include Atomoxetine and Atomoxetine hydrochloride. His study in Impulsivity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Apathy, Frontotemporal lobar degeneration, Frontotemporal dementia and Neuropsychology.

His Cognition research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cognitive psychology, Clinical psychology and Schizophrenia. The Addiction study combines topics in areas such as Substance abuse and Naltrexone. Trevor W. Robbins works mostly in the field of Prefrontal cortex, limiting it down to topics relating to Brain mapping and, in certain cases, Anticipation, as a part of the same area of interest.
