Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Social psychology
  • Artificial intelligence

Ullrich K. H. Ecker focuses on Misinformation, Social psychology, Cognition, Working memory and Phenomenon. His research investigates the connection between Misinformation and topics such as Public relations that intersect with problems in Debiasing. His Social psychology study incorporates themes from Face perception and Argumentation theory.

The Memory span and Executive functions research Ullrich K. H. Ecker does as part of his general Cognition study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Repetition, Set and Battery, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His studies in Working memory integrate themes in fields like Cognitive psychology and Task, Artificial intelligence. His Cognitive psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Developmental psychology, Short-term memory and Episodic memory.

His most cited work include:

  • Misinformation and Its Correction: Continued Influence and Successful Debiasing (926 citations)
  • Beyond Misinformation: Understanding and coping with the post-truth era (310 citations)
  • Neutralizing misinformation through inoculation: Exposing misleading argumentation techniques reduces their influence (195 citations)

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

Ullrich K. H. Ecker spends much of his time researching Misinformation, Cognitive psychology, Social psychology, Cognition and Working memory. The Misinformation study combines topics in areas such as Psychological intervention, Source credibility, Affect and Public relations. The concepts of his Cognitive psychology study are interwoven with issues in Communication, Recognition memory, Perception and Episodic memory.

In general Social psychology study, his work on Persuasion often relates to the realm of Impression formation, Voting and Reading comprehension, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His work in the fields of Memoria overlaps with other areas such as Repetition. His Short-term memory study in the realm of Working memory interacts with subjects such as Structural equation modeling.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Misinformation (46.88%)
  • Cognitive psychology (38.54%)
  • Social psychology (27.08%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Misinformation (46.88%)
  • Social psychology (27.08%)
  • Cognitive psychology (38.54%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Misinformation, Social psychology, Cognitive psychology, Public relations and False accusation. Ullrich K. H. Ecker incorporates Misinformation and Motivated reasoning in his research. His Social psychology investigation overlaps with other areas such as Domestic violence, Impression formation and Cultural background.

His work carried out in the field of Cognitive psychology brings together such families of science as Cognition, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Left angular gyrus, Neural correlates of consciousness and Precuneus. His False accusation research integrates issues from Fact checking, Set and Experimental psychology. He has researched Developmental psychology in several fields, including Phenomenon, Rumination, Depression and Attentional bias.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Political Attitudes and the Processing of Misinformation Corrections (42 citations)
  • The effectiveness of short‐format refutational fact‐checks (23 citations)
  • Evaluation of a template for countering misinformation—Real-world Autism treatment myth debunking (23 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Social psychology
  • Artificial intelligence

Ullrich K. H. Ecker mainly focuses on Misinformation, Internet privacy, Fact checking, Source credibility and Social psychology. Ullrich K. H. Ecker integrates Misinformation with Motivated reasoning in his research. His work investigates the relationship between Fact checking and topics such as Simple that intersect with problems in Cognitive psychology.

His Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Precuneus, Left angular gyrus, Neural processing and Prior information. Social psychology and Cognition are frequently intertwined in his study. The various areas that he examines in his Harm study include Autism and Applied psychology.
