Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Electroencephalography

His primary areas of investigation include Sleep in non-human animals, Electroencephalography, Sleep deprivation, Slow-wave sleep and Non-rapid eye movement sleep. His studies deal with areas such as Endocrinology and Internal medicine, Bedtime as well as Sleep in non-human animals. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Developmental psychology, Electrophysiology, Vigilance and Circadian rhythm.

His Sleep deprivation research is included under the broader classification of Neuroscience. His study of K-complex is a part of Slow-wave sleep. His research in Non-rapid eye movement sleep is mostly concerned with Sleep spindle.

His most cited work include:

  • A two process model of sleep regulation. (3037 citations)
  • Sleep homeostasis and models of sleep regulation (1175 citations)
  • Timing of human sleep: recovery process gated by a circadian pacemaker (1068 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Sleep in non-human animals, Electroencephalography, Slow-wave sleep, Sleep deprivation and Neuroscience. Alexander A. Borbély has researched Sleep in non-human animals in several fields, including Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Circadian rhythm. His Electroencephalography research incorporates elements of Developmental psychology, Electrophysiology, Vigilance and Eye movement.

His Slow-wave sleep research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Anesthesia, Rapid eye movement sleep, Sleep onset, Non-rapid eye movement sleep and Sleep Stages. Within one scientific family, Alexander A. Borbély focuses on topics pertaining to Audiology under Non-rapid eye movement sleep, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Time course. Sleep deprivation and Neuroscience of sleep are commonly linked in his work.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Sleep in non-human animals (49.33%)
  • Electroencephalography (38.57%)
  • Slow-wave sleep (32.29%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2000-2020)?

  • Sleep in non-human animals (49.33%)
  • Neuroscience (26.46%)
  • Sleep deprivation (31.39%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Sleep in non-human animals, Neuroscience, Sleep deprivation, Non-rapid eye movement sleep and Audiology. His study looks at the relationship between Sleep in non-human animals and topics such as Electroencephalography, which overlap with Eye movement. In general Neuroscience, his work in Sleep regulation, Sleep eeg and Local sleep is often linked to Process linking many areas of study.

His Sleep deprivation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Neuroscience of sleep, Wakefulness, Endocrinology, Free-running sleep and Internal medicine. His study in Non-rapid eye movement sleep is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Rapid eye movement sleep, Slow-wave sleep, Vigilance and Polysomnography. The concepts of his Sleep spindle study are interwoven with issues in Sleep onset and K-complex.

Between 2000 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • The two‐process model of sleep regulation: a reappraisal (507 citations)
  • Functional topography of the human nonREM sleep electroencephalogram. (282 citations)
  • Electromagnetic fields, such as those from mobile phones, alter regional cerebral blood flow and sleep and waking EEG. (262 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Endocrinology

Alexander A. Borbély mostly deals with Electroencephalography, Sleep in non-human animals, Neuroscience, Audiology and Sleep deprivation. The various areas that Alexander A. Borbély examines in his Electroencephalography study include Sleep onset and Eye movement. Sleep in non-human animals is closely attributed to Circadian rhythm in his study.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Non-rapid eye movement sleep, Slow-wave sleep, Sleep spindle, K-complex and Rapid eye movement sleep in addition to Audiology. His work is dedicated to discovering how Sleep spindle, Delta wave are connected with Anesthesia, Sleep Stages and Unihemispheric slow-wave sleep and other disciplines. Alexander A. Borbély works mostly in the field of Sleep deprivation, limiting it down to concerns involving Neuroscience of sleep and, occasionally, Internal medicine and Endocrinology.
