Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Developmental psychology, Methylphenidate, Cognitive development, Clinical psychology and Psychiatry. The Developmental psychology study combines topics in areas such as Brain damage, Cognitive disorder and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Her research investigates the link between Methylphenidate and topics such as Normal children that cross with problems in Cognitive style.

Her Cognitive development research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cognitive training, Impulsivity, Behavior change and Elementary cognitive task. Virginia I. Douglas connects Clinical psychology with Primary education in her study. Her research in the fields of Attention span and Learning disorders overlaps with other disciplines such as Intrapsychic, Minimal brain dysfunction syndrome and Five year follow up.

Her most cited work include:

  • Stop, look and listen: The problem of sustained attention and impulse control in hyperactive and normal children. (573 citations)
  • Mean response times, variability, and skew in the responding of ADHD children: a response time distributional approach (470 citations)
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and the frontal lobe syndrome. (335 citations)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Developmental psychology, Cognition, Methylphenidate, Clinical psychology and Normal children. Her Developmental psychology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cognitive psychology, Audiology, Frustration, Cognitive style and Reinforcement. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Normal control and El Niño.

Her Cognition research incorporates elements of Recall and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Her study in Methylphenidate is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Attention deficit disorder, Hyperkinesis and Psychological testing. Her Clinical psychology research also works with subjects such as

  • Cognitive development which connect with Cognitive training, Impulsivity and Self-control,
  • Pharmacology toxicology which is related to area like Partial reinforcement and Psychotherapist.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Developmental psychology (74.51%)
  • Cognition (33.33%)
  • Methylphenidate (27.45%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 1992-2005)?

  • Developmental psychology (74.51%)
  • Cognition (33.33%)
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (21.57%)

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

Virginia I. Douglas focuses on Developmental psychology, Cognition, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Audiology and Methylphenidate. Her Developmental psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Normal children, Reinforcement and Neuropsychology. Virginia I. Douglas has researched Normal children in several fields, including Frustration and Vigilance.

Her Executive functions and Memoria study in the realm of Cognition interacts with subjects such as Conceptualization and Rehearsing. Her Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder research includes elements of Metacognition and Free recall. Her Methylphenidate research is under the purview of Psychiatry.

Between 1992 and 2005, her most popular works were:

  • Mean response times, variability, and skew in the responding of ADHD children: a response time distributional approach (470 citations)
  • Cognitive Control Processes in Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (185 citations)
  • Effects of reward and response costs on inhibition in ADHD children. (182 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine
  • Developmental psychology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Developmental psychology, Reinforcement, Learning curve, Control and School age child. Her research in Developmental psychology intersects with topics in Receiver operating characteristic and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Her work carried out in the field of Receiver operating characteristic brings together such families of science as Normal control and Normal distribution.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Cognition, Cognitive problems and Neuropsychology in addition to Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Her study ties her expertise on El Niño together with the subject of Reinforcement. Among her research on Chi-squared distribution, you can see a combination of other fields of science like Age differences, Response time and Skew.
