Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Parkinson's disease

Alfonso Fasano mostly deals with Parkinson's disease, Deep brain stimulation, Disease, Neuroscience and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His Parkinson's disease research is included under the broader classification of Internal medicine. His research investigates the connection between Internal medicine and topics such as Gastroenterology that intersect with problems in Pathology and Pathophysiology.

His Deep brain stimulation study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Dystonia. His research integrates issues of Psychiatry, Adverse effect, Surgery and Pathogenesis in his study of Disease. His study looks at the relationship between Physical medicine and rehabilitation and topics such as Unified Parkinson's disease rating scale, which overlap with Postural Balance, Postural control, Center of pressure, Cognitive decline and Executive dysfunction.

His most cited work include:

  • Gastrointestinal dysfunction in Parkinson's disease. (646 citations)
  • Motor and cognitive outcome in patients with Parkinson's disease 8 years after subthalamic implants (278 citations)
  • Treatment of motor and non-motor features of Parkinson's disease with deep brain stimulation. (255 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Parkinson's disease, Deep brain stimulation, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Neuroscience and Dystonia. His work deals with themes such as Physical therapy and Neurology, which intersect with Parkinson's disease. The various areas that he examines in his Deep brain stimulation study include Essential tremor, Stimulation, Globus pallidus and Adverse effect.

His studies deal with areas such as Rehabilitation and Cognition as well as Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His Dystonia research integrates issues from Movement disorders, Surgery, Pediatrics and Rating scale. His research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Cardiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Parkinson's disease (47.28%)
  • Deep brain stimulation (41.63%)
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (28.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Parkinson's disease (47.28%)
  • Deep brain stimulation (41.63%)
  • Internal medicine (21.40%)

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

His primary areas of study are Parkinson's disease, Deep brain stimulation, Internal medicine, Movement disorders and Neuroscience. Parkinson's disease is the subject of his research, which falls under Disease. When carried out as part of a general Disease research project, his work on Dementia is frequently linked to work in Pandemic, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

His Deep brain stimulation research incorporates elements of Magnetic resonance imaging, Stimulation, Neuroimaging and Intensive care medicine. His study in the field of Levodopa also crosses realms of Ventriculomegaly. His Movement disorders research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Adverse effect, Activities of daily living and Confidence interval.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • COVID-19 in Parkinson's Disease Patients Living in Lombardy, Italy. (51 citations)
  • COVID-19 in Parkinson's Disease Patients Living in Lombardy, Italy. (51 citations)
  • Management of Advanced Therapies in Parkinson's Disease Patients in Times of Humanitarian Crisis: The COVID-19 Experience (29 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Parkinson's disease

Alfonso Fasano mainly focuses on Parkinson's disease, Deep brain stimulation, Magnetic resonance imaging, Neuroscience and Essential tremor. His Parkinson's disease study is associated with Internal medicine. In his work, Disease, Intensive care medicine and Hyperintensity is strongly intertwined with Neurology, which is a subfield of Internal medicine.

His Deep brain stimulation research includes themes of Pulse-width modulation, Neuromodulation, Neuroimaging and Virtual reality. His Neuroscience research includes elements of Probabilistic mapping and Therapeutic window. His Essential tremor research includes themes of Deep brain stimulation surgery, Less invasive, Thalamotomy, Tractography and Radiology.
