Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Neuron

Frédéric E. Theunissen mainly investigates Neuroscience, Natural sounds, Communication, Stimulus and Modulation. Frédéric E. Theunissen does research in Neuroscience, focusing on Receptive field specifically. His work deals with themes such as Auditory system, Zebra finch and Auditory cortex, which intersect with Natural sounds.

His Communication research includes themes of Information theory, Electrophysiology and Neural coding. The study incorporates disciplines such as Neurophysiology, Linear model and Sensory system in addition to Stimulus. His research investigates the link between Linear model and topics such as Pattern recognition that cross with problems in Artificial intelligence.

His most cited work include:

  • Information theory and neural coding. (913 citations)
  • Natural speech reveals the semantic maps that tile human cerebral cortex (651 citations)
  • Natural speech reveals the semantic maps that tile human cerebral cortex (651 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Communication, Zebra finch, Sensory system and Natural sounds. His Vocal learning study, which is part of a larger body of work in Communication, is frequently linked to Nidopallium, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Sensory system study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cricket, Interneuron and Neural coding.

His Natural sounds study which covers Modulation that intersects with Bioacoustics. Artificial intelligence and Cognitive neuroscience is closely connected to Linear model in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Stimulus. His work on Semantics as part of general Artificial intelligence research is frequently linked to Meaning, bridging the gap between disciplines.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (51.35%)
  • Communication (36.04%)
  • Zebra finch (43.24%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2020)?

  • Communication (36.04%)
  • Zebra finch (43.24%)
  • Neural coding (26.13%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Communication, Zebra finch, Neural coding, Sensory system and Natural sounds. His Communication research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Speech processing, Repertoire, Feature vector, Neurocomputational speech processing and Echoic memory. His research investigates the connection with Zebra finch and areas like Identity which intersect with concerns in Sympatric speciation and Mating.

His Neural coding study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Neuroscience. As a member of one scientific family, Frédéric E. Theunissen mostly works in the field of Neuroscience, focusing on Categorical variable and, on occasion, Stimulus and Active listening. The Natural sounds study combines topics in areas such as Decoding methods, Psychoacoustics and Cognitive neuroscience.

Between 2016 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • The Hierarchical Cortical Organization of Human Speech Processing (110 citations)
  • Encoding and decoding models in cognitive electrophysiology (55 citations)
  • Encoding and decoding models in cognitive electrophysiology (55 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Neuron

Communication, Zebra finch, Stimulus modality, Optimal distinctiveness theory and Vocal organ are his primary areas of study. The concepts of his Communication study are interwoven with issues in Auditory cortex, Semantic memory, Semantic property and Neurocomputational speech processing. His Zebra finch study contributes to a more complete understanding of Neuroscience.

His research in Stimulus modality intersects with topics in Natural sounds, Decoding methods, Cognition and Artificial intelligence. His work carried out in the field of Optimal distinctiveness theory brings together such families of science as Memorization, Repertoire, Zebra, Social animal and Identity.
