Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Schizophrenia

Her primary areas of investigation include Cognitive psychology, Arousal, Developmental psychology, Anxiety and Brain activity and meditation. Her Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Perception, Cognition, Stroop effect, Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and Functional magnetic resonance imaging. Her Developmental psychology research incorporates themes from Lateralization of brain function, Attentional bias, Neuropsychology and Cognitive bias.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Big Five personality traits, Personality and Psychopathology. Her studies deal with areas such as Apprehension and Depression as well as Anxiety. Her Worry study combines topics in areas such as Somatic anxiety and Clinical psychology.

Her most cited work include:

  • Neuropsychological mechanisms of individual differences in emotion, personality, and arousal. (435 citations)
  • Patterns of regional brain activity differentiate types of anxiety. (368 citations)
  • Asymmetry of perception in free viewing of chimeric faces. (305 citations)

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

Wendy Heller spends much of her time researching Cognitive psychology, Anxiety, Developmental psychology, Cognition and Arousal. Her studies in Cognitive psychology integrate themes in fields like Neuroscience, Perception, Brain mapping and Stroop effect. The study incorporates disciplines such as Anterior cingulate cortex, Attentional bias and Functional magnetic resonance imaging in addition to Stroop effect.

Her research integrates issues of Psychopathology, Clinical psychology, Apprehension, Brain activity and meditation and Depression in her study of Anxiety. Wendy Heller has researched Developmental psychology in several fields, including Anxiety disorder, Personality, Neuropsychology and Cognitive bias. Her Arousal study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Valence, Worry and Affect.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (37.50%)
  • Anxiety (30.88%)
  • Developmental psychology (28.68%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Cognitive psychology (37.50%)
  • Anxiety (30.88%)
  • Clinical psychology (17.65%)

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

Wendy Heller mainly investigates Cognitive psychology, Anxiety, Clinical psychology, Cognition and Neuroscience. Her Cognitive psychology research includes elements of Perceived control, Rumination and Emotional processing. Her Anxiety research includes themes of Psychotherapist, Temperament, Arousal and Depression.

Her work in the fields of Clinical psychology, such as Psychopathology, intersects with other areas such as Context. Her Cognition study incorporates themes from Interoception and Mindfulness. When carried out as part of a general Neuroscience research project, her work on Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Amygdala and Prefrontal cortex is frequently linked to work in Control reconfiguration, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Differential functional connectivity of rostral anterior cingulate cortex during emotional interference. (20 citations)
  • Mindfulness training induces structural connectome changes in insula networks (13 citations)
  • A Bi-Factor Approach to Modeling the Structure of Worry and Rumination: (13 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Schizophrenia

Her primary areas of study are Cognitive psychology, PsycINFO, Neuroscience, Insula and Rumination. Her work carried out in the field of Cognitive psychology brings together such families of science as Neural system and Button press. Her PsycINFO study spans across into areas like Translational research, Affective science, Well-being, Social psychology and Developmental psychology.

Her research related to Error-related negativity, Precuneus, Insular cortex and Arousal might be considered part of Neuroscience. Her Insula research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Anterior cingulate cortex, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Prefrontal cortex and Amygdala. The various areas that she examines in her Rumination study include Temperament, Social psychology and Worry, Anxiety.
