Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine

Yi-Yuan Tang spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Cognitive psychology, Brain mapping, Cognition and Anterior cingulate cortex. Yi-Yuan Tang has researched Cognitive psychology in several fields, including Cerebral cortex, Frontal lobe, Cingulate cortex and Cortex. In his study, Insula, Arousal, Perception, Variety and Neural correlates of consciousness is strongly linked to Nerve net, which falls under the umbrella field of Brain mapping.

Many of his research projects under Cognition are closely connected to Adaptability, Training methods and Computer based with Adaptability, Training methods and Computer based, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His Anterior cingulate cortex study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Relaxation and Electroencephalography. His Relaxation research focuses on Psychological testing and how it connects with Mindfulness.

His most cited work include:

  • Short-term meditation training improves attention and self-regulation (1061 citations)
  • The neuroscience of mindfulness meditation (927 citations)
  • Meditation experience is associated with differences in default mode network activity and connectivity (658 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience, Relaxation, Cognition and Anterior cingulate cortex. He merges Cognitive psychology with Mechanism in his study. His Relaxation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Affect, Electroencephalography, Randomized controlled trial and Clinical psychology, Mood.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Cognition, Developmental psychology and Mental health is strongly linked to Mindfulness. His research in Anterior cingulate cortex intersects with topics in Neuroplasticity and Prefrontal cortex. His work is dedicated to discovering how Brain mapping, Nerve net are connected with Perception, Variety, Arousal and Neural correlates of consciousness and other disciplines.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (53.78%)
  • Neuroscience (51.26%)
  • Relaxation (31.93%)

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

  • Cognition (27.73%)
  • Cognitive psychology (53.78%)
  • Perspective (8.40%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cognition, Cognitive psychology, Perspective, Mind–body problem and Psychotherapist. He has researched Cognition in several fields, including Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Somatosensory system, Mindfulness and Cerebral hemodynamics. His studies deal with areas such as Social psychology, Big Five personality traits, Temperament, Personality and Feeling as well as Mindfulness.

His Cognitive psychology research integrates issues from Arousal and Neuropsychology. His work on Self-control is typically connected to Health psychology as part of general Psychotherapist study, connecting several disciplines of science. The Emotion classification study combines topics in areas such as Creativity, Anger, Surprise, Cognitive style and Novelty.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mindfulness meditation improves emotion regulation and reduces drug abuse. (72 citations)
  • Traits and states in mindfulness meditation. (29 citations)
  • A translational neuroscience perspective on mindfulness meditation as a prevention strategy (21 citations)
