Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Magnetic resonance imaging

His primary areas of study are White matter, Audiology, Neuroscience, Diffusion MRI and Magnetic resonance imaging. His White matter research incorporates themes from Corpus callosum, Anatomy, Pathology and Central nervous system. His Audiology research incorporates elements of Developmental psychology, Schizophrenia and Event-related potential, Electroencephalography.

His work in Neuroscience is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Normal aging. His studies deal with areas such as Cognition, Nuclear medicine and Nuclear magnetic resonance as well as Diffusion MRI. His study in Magnetic resonance imaging is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cerebrospinal fluid, Sobriety, Neuroimaging and Gray.

His most cited work include:

  • A quantitative magnetic resonance imaging study of changes in brain morphology from infancy to late adulthood. (1187 citations)
  • Age-related decline in brain white matter anisotropy measured with spatially corrected echo-planar diffusion tensor imaging. (552 citations)
  • Clinical application of the P3 component of event-related potentials. II. Dementia, depression and schizophrenia (530 citations)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, White matter, Audiology, Magnetic resonance imaging and Cognition. His White matter research includes elements of Corpus callosum, Anatomy, Pathology and Diffusion MRI. His Pathology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Internal medicine and In vivo.

His research integrates issues of In vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy, Psychosis, Psychiatry and Brain size in his study of Internal medicine. Adolf Pfefferbaum works mostly in the field of Audiology, limiting it down to topics relating to Electroencephalography and, in certain cases, Evoked potential, as a part of the same area of interest. He has researched Magnetic resonance imaging in several fields, including Cerebrospinal fluid, Central nervous system, Nuclear medicine, Neuroimaging and Nuclear magnetic resonance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (42.43%)
  • White matter (30.66%)
  • Audiology (28.07%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Cognition (24.58%)
  • Neuroscience (42.43%)
  • Alcohol use disorder (7.37%)

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

Cognition, Neuroscience, Alcohol use disorder, Internal medicine and Neuroimaging are his primary areas of study. His Cognition study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cognitive psychology, Audiology, Diffusion MRI, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Addiction. Adolf Pfefferbaum combines Neuroscience and Synaptic pruning in his research.

Adolf Pfefferbaum has included themes like Cerebellum, White matter, Magnetic resonance imaging, Sobriety and Comorbidity in his Alcohol use disorder study. Adolf Pfefferbaum works mostly in the field of White matter, limiting it down to topics relating to Physiology and, in certain cases, Alcohol dependence. His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cardiology, Endocrinology, Binge drinking and Pathology.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Brain Development in Heavy Drinking Adolescents (129 citations)
  • Image processing and analysis methods for the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development Study. (121 citations)
  • The National Consortium on Alcohol and NeuroDevelopment in Adolescence (NCANDA): a multisite study of adolescent development and substance use (103 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience

Adolf Pfefferbaum mainly focuses on Cognition, Developmental psychology, Psychiatry, Internal medicine and Young adult. Adolf Pfefferbaum interconnects Alcohol dependence, Cognitive psychology, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Wernicke's encephalopathy and Addiction in the investigation of issues within Cognition. The Psychiatry study combines topics in areas such as Observational study, Hippocampus and Brain size.

Within one scientific family, Adolf Pfefferbaum focuses on topics pertaining to Endocrinology under Internal medicine, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Binge drinking, In vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy, Pathology and Neurology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Longitudinal study, Injury prevention and White matter. His Neuroscience study frequently involves adjacent topics like Magnetic resonance imaging.
