What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

Fernando Nottebohm mainly focuses on Song control system, Anatomy, Neuroscience, Arcopallium and Zebra finch. Song control system and Nucleus are frequently intertwined in his study. The various areas that Fernando Nottebohm examines in his Anatomy study include Cerebrum, Diencephalon, Vertebrate, Sexual maturity and Neurogenesis.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Arcopallium, Songbird are connected with Animal communication, Immediate early gene, Period and Stimulation and other disciplines. Fernando Nottebohm combines subjects such as Communication and Vocal learning with his study of Zebra finch. In his study, Reticular formation is inextricably linked to Thalamus, which falls within the broad field of Vocal learning.

His most cited work include:

  • Central control of song in the canary, Serinus canarius (1472 citations)
  • Central control of song in the canary, Serinus canarius (1472 citations)
  • Sexual dimorphism in vocal control areas of the songbird brain (955 citations)

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

Fernando Nottebohm focuses on Neuroscience, Anatomy, Zebra finch, Nucleus and Forebrain. His Anatomy research incorporates elements of Adult male, Hypoglossal nucleus and Song control system. His Song control system study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Arcopallium.

His work in the fields of Zebra finch, such as Taeniopygia, intersects with other areas such as Canto. The Nucleus study combines topics in areas such as Testosterone, Synapse, Endocrinology and Internal medicine. His Forebrain research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cerebrum, Immediate early gene and Thalamus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (35.67%)
  • Anatomy (30.57%)
  • Zebra finch (22.93%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2000-2016)?

  • Neuroscience (35.67%)
  • Vocal learning (16.56%)
  • Zebra finch (22.93%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Vocal learning, Zebra finch, Neuron and Neurogenesis. His studies in Neuroscience integrate themes in fields like Neurotrophic factors and Ontogeny. Fernando Nottebohm has researched Vocal learning in several fields, including Imitation, Songbird and Cognition.

Many of his research projects under Zebra finch are closely connected to Genome project with Genome project, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. Fernando Nottebohm has included themes like Period, Anatomy, Serinus canaria, Nidopallium and Adult male in his Neuron study. Anatomy connects with themes related to Juvenile in his study.

Between 2000 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • Dynamics of the Vocal Imitation Process: How a Zebra Finch Learns Its Song (392 citations)
  • Relationship between Song Repertoire and Age in the Canary, Serinus canarius (202 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Vocal learning, Neurogenesis, Communication and Period. In the subject of general Neuroscience, his work in Prosencephalon and Neuroplasticity is often linked to Model system, Basis and General theory, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Vocal learning research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Genetics, Embryo, Transgene, Genetic model and Green fluorescent protein.

His work deals with themes such as Central nervous system, Brain tissue and Nervous system, which intersect with Neurogenesis. His Communication research integrates issues from Stimulus and Serinus canarius. His Transition study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Zebra finch.
