Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition

Alvaro Pascual-Leone focuses on Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Neuroscience, Stimulation, Transcranial direct-current stimulation and Brain stimulation. His work carried out in the field of Transcranial magnetic stimulation brings together such families of science as Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Central nervous system, Motor cortex, Neuroimaging and Neurology. His Neurology research integrates issues from Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Electroencephalography.

His research brings together the fields of Audiology and Neuroscience. Alvaro Pascual-Leone combines subjects such as Stroke, Anesthesia and Transcranial alternating current stimulation with his study of Transcranial direct-current stimulation. His Brain stimulation study incorporates themes from Epilepsy, Chronic pain, Parkinson's disease and Motor learning.

His most cited work include:

  • Safety, ethical considerations, and application guidelines for the use of transcranial magnetic stimulation in clinical practice and research (3375 citations)
  • Transcranial direct current stimulation: State of the art 2008 (1994 citations)
  • The plastic human brain cortex. (1224 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Stimulation, Brain stimulation and Motor cortex. His study in Neuroplasticity, Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Cognition, Prefrontal cortex and Neuroimaging are all subfields of Neuroscience. His Transcranial magnetic stimulation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Brain mapping, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Audiology and Electroencephalography.

His Physical medicine and rehabilitation study combines topics in areas such as Stroke and Physical therapy. His biological study deals with issues like Epilepsy, which deal with fields such as Anesthesia. Brain stimulation connects with themes related to Resting state fMRI in his study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (64.70%)
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (67.03%)
  • Stimulation (27.81%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (64.70%)
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (67.03%)
  • Stimulation (27.81%)

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

Alvaro Pascual-Leone focuses on Neuroscience, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Stimulation, Cognition and Brain stimulation. His study in Neuroscience focuses on Electroencephalography, Human brain, Neuroimaging, Working memory and Neuromodulation. His Transcranial magnetic stimulation research also works with subjects such as

  • Audiology that connect with fields like CTBS,
  • Neuroplasticity together with Motor cortex,
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation, which have a strong connection to Randomized controlled trial.

The Stimulation study combines topics in areas such as Long-term potentiation, Pars opercularis and Neurophysiology. His research integrates issues of Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Clinical psychology in his study of Cognition. His work investigates the relationship between Brain stimulation and topics such as Brain activity and meditation that intersect with problems in Resting state fMRI.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Cerebellar-Prefrontal Network Connectivity and Negative Symptoms in Schizophrenia (72 citations)
  • Clinical utility and prospective of TMS–EEG (64 citations)
  • Sham tDCS: A hidden source of variability? Reflections for further blinded, controlled trials. (54 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition

His primary areas of investigation include Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Neuroscience, Cognition, Stimulation and Brain stimulation. His Transcranial magnetic stimulation research incorporates elements of Clinical trial, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Audiology, Randomized controlled trial and Motor cortex. His study on Neuroscience is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Visual Hallucination.

His Cognition research includes elements of Neurophysiology, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Medical diagnosis. In the subject of general Stimulation, his work in Transcranial direct-current stimulation is often linked to Chemistry, thereby combining diverse domains of study. Alvaro Pascual-Leone interconnects Neuromodulation, Brain activity and meditation and Cognitive neuroscience in the investigation of issues within Brain stimulation.
