What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Epilepsy
  • Neuroscience

His main research concerns Epilepsy, Neuroscience, Temporal lobe, Electroencephalography and Hippocampus. His Epilepsy research incorporates themes from Surgery, Central nervous system disease and Anesthesia. His Central nervous system disease study combines topics in areas such as Pediatrics and Pathology.

His research on Temporal lobe also deals with topics like

  • Verbal memory most often made with reference to Verbal learning,
  • Long-term memory most often made with reference to Semantic memory. His work in Electroencephalography addresses issues such as Artificial intelligence, which are connected to fields such as Pattern recognition. His Hippocampus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hippocampal formation, Prefrontal cortex and Neocortex.

His most cited work include:

  • ILAE Official Report: A practical clinical definition of epilepsy (1947 citations)
  • Indications of nonlinear deterministic and finite-dimensional structures in time series of brain electrical activity: dependence on recording region and brain state. (1640 citations)
  • Mean phase coherence as a measure for phase synchronization and its application to the EEG of epilepsy patients (963 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Epilepsy, Neuroscience, Temporal lobe, Electroencephalography and Hippocampal formation. His study of Epilepsy surgery is a part of Epilepsy. His Cognition, Lateralization of brain function, Electrophysiology and Stimulus study in the realm of Neuroscience interacts with subjects such as Rhinal cortex.

The Temporal lobe study combines topics in areas such as Verbal memory, Audiology and Pathology. Christian E. Elger has included themes like Artificial intelligence and Nonlinear system in his Electroencephalography study. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Hippocampus and Hippocampal formation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Epilepsy (48.26%)
  • Neuroscience (28.32%)
  • Temporal lobe (22.88%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Epilepsy (48.26%)
  • Temporal lobe (22.88%)
  • Epilepsy surgery (11.76%)

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

Christian E. Elger spends much of his time researching Epilepsy, Temporal lobe, Epilepsy surgery, Internal medicine and Neuroscience. Christian E. Elger combines subjects such as Anesthesia, Surgery and Pediatrics with his study of Epilepsy. His studies in Anesthesia integrate themes in fields like Ictal, Electroencephalography and Heart rate.

His work carried out in the field of Temporal lobe brings together such families of science as Magnetic resonance imaging, Limbic encephalitis, Hippocampus and Amygdala. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Epilepsy surgery, narrowing it down to issues related to the Neuropsychology, and often Executive functions. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Endocrinology, Eslicarbazepine acetate and Cardiology.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Hierarchical nesting of slow oscillations, spindles and ripples in the human hippocampus during sleep (354 citations)
  • Histopathological Findings in Brain Tissue Obtained during Epilepsy Surgery (257 citations)
  • Genome-wide mega-analysis identifies 16 loci and highlights diverse biological mechanisms in the common epilepsies (140 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Epilepsy

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Epilepsy, Temporal lobe, Epilepsy surgery, Anesthesia and Internal medicine. His Epilepsy study focuses on Ictal in particular. His research in Temporal lobe intersects with topics in Disease, Neuron, Human brain and Mood.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Executive functions, Cognition, Neuropsychology, Young adult and Neurosurgery in addition to Epilepsy surgery. The Anesthesia study which covers Status epilepticus that intersects with Hypoxemia, Sinus tachycardia, Myocardial infarction, Epileptic seizure and Psychogenic non-epileptic seizures. His Internal medicine course of study focuses on Cardiology and Functional imaging, Peri, Blood–brain barrier and Epileptogenesis.
