Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Surgery

Felipe Fregni focuses on Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Neuroscience, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Stimulation and Brain stimulation. He has researched Transcranial direct-current stimulation in several fields, including Randomized controlled trial, Prefrontal cortex, Cognition, Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and Primary motor cortex. Felipe Fregni works mostly in the field of Neuroscience, limiting it down to concerns involving Audiology and, occasionally, Aphasia and Photic Stimulation.

Felipe Fregni has included themes like Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Stroke, Psychiatry, Parkinson's disease and Cortex in his Transcranial magnetic stimulation study. His Stimulation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Anesthesia, Cranial electrotherapy stimulation, Central nervous system, Fibromyalgia and Brain activity and meditation. His Brain stimulation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Rehabilitation and Physical therapy.

His most cited work include:

  • Transcranial direct current stimulation: State of the art 2008 (1994 citations)
  • The plastic human brain cortex. (1224 citations)
  • Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation of prefrontal cortex enhances working memory. (899 citations)

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

Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Neuroscience, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Brain stimulation and Physical medicine and rehabilitation are his primary areas of study. Transcranial direct-current stimulation is a subfield of Stimulation that Felipe Fregni investigates. His Neuroscience study often links to related topics such as Audiology.

His study in Transcranial magnetic stimulation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Stroke, Neurophysiology, Depression and Epilepsy. Felipe Fregni regularly ties together related areas like Neuromodulation in his Brain stimulation studies. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation research integrates issues from Rehabilitation, Clinical trial, Electroencephalography, Spinal cord injury and Fibromyalgia.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Transcranial direct-current stimulation (54.87%)
  • Neuroscience (39.08%)
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (34.34%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Transcranial direct-current stimulation (54.87%)
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (25.92%)
  • Randomized controlled trial (18.16%)

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

Felipe Fregni spends much of his time researching Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Randomized controlled trial, Anesthesia and Transcranial magnetic stimulation. His Transcranial direct-current stimulation research incorporates themes from Brain stimulation, Neuromodulation and Clinical trial. His Randomized controlled trial study incorporates themes from MEDLINE, Analgesic, Meta-analysis and Physical therapy, Chronic pain.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Anesthesia, Internal medicine is strongly linked to Placebo. He has included themes like Stroke and Disinhibition in his Transcranial magnetic stimulation study. His study in the field of Motor cortex also crosses realms of Context.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Low intensity transcranial electric stimulation: Safety, ethical, legal regulatory and application guidelines (336 citations)
  • Trial of Electrical Direct-Current Therapy versus Escitalopram for Depression (141 citations)
  • Transcranial electrical and magnetic stimulation (tES and TMS) for addiction medicine: A consensus paper on the present state of the science and the road ahead (67 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Surgery

Felipe Fregni mainly investigates Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Randomized controlled trial, Clinical trial and Transcranial magnetic stimulation. His Transcranial direct-current stimulation study is associated with Stimulation. His research integrates issues of Crossover study, Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, Fibromyalgia, Chronic pain and Primary motor cortex in his study of Physical medicine and rehabilitation.

The Randomized controlled trial study combines topics in areas such as Meta-analysis, Physical therapy and Psychiatry. Felipe Fregni combines subjects such as Spinal cord injury, Clinical research, Schizophrenia and Quality of life with his study of Clinical trial. His research in Transcranial magnetic stimulation intersects with topics in Stroke, Stroke recovery, Mania and Electroconvulsive therapy.
