Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Prefrontal cortex, Brain mapping and Neuroimaging. His study in Anterior cingulate cortex, Resting state fMRI, Cognition, Neural correlates of consciousness and Posterior cingulate falls within the category of Neuroscience. The study incorporates disciplines such as Information processing, Developmental psychology, Cognitive science, Conversion disorder and Self in addition to Cognition.

His studies in Functional magnetic resonance imaging integrate themes in fields like Valence, International Affective Picture System, Orbitofrontal cortex, Ventromedial prefrontal cortex and Functional imaging. His Brain mapping research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Neuroanatomy, Cognitive psychology, Nerve net and Blood-oxygen-level dependent. His Neuroimaging study combines topics in areas such as Major depressive disorder, Brain activity and meditation and Evoked activity.

His most cited work include:

  • Self-referential processing in our brain--a meta-analysis of imaging studies on the self. (1884 citations)
  • Cortical midline structures and the self (1089 citations)
  • Cortical midline structures and the self (1089 citations)

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

Neuroscience, Resting state fMRI, Cognitive psychology, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Cognition are his primary areas of study. Neuroscience is a component of his Prefrontal cortex, Anterior cingulate cortex, Brain mapping, Neuroimaging and Default mode network studies. In his research, Clinical psychology and Audiology is intimately related to Major depressive disorder, which falls under the overarching field of Anterior cingulate cortex.

He works mostly in the field of Resting state fMRI, limiting it down to topics relating to Consciousness and, in certain cases, Neural correlates of consciousness, Level of consciousness and Wakefulness, as a part of the same area of interest. His research on Cognitive psychology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Self. His studies deal with areas such as Brain activity and meditation, Bipolar disorder and Functional imaging as well as Functional magnetic resonance imaging.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (51.19%)
  • Resting state fMRI (26.45%)
  • Cognitive psychology (20.31%)

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

  • Neuroscience (51.19%)
  • Resting state fMRI (26.45%)
  • Functional magnetic resonance imaging (23.89%)

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

Georg Northoff mainly investigates Neuroscience, Resting state fMRI, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Electroencephalography and Cognitive psychology. Neuroscience is closely attributed to Schizophrenia in his work. His Resting state fMRI research includes themes of Audiology, Consciousness, Anterior cingulate cortex, Major depressive disorder and Brain mapping.

His work focuses on many connections between Brain mapping and other disciplines, such as Ventral tegmental area, that overlap with his field of interest in Psychiatry. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Mania, Bipolar disorder, Internal medicine, Magnetic resonance imaging and Eye movement. His Cognitive psychology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Schizophrenia, Neural correlates of consciousness, Psychology of self and Self.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Opposite effects of dopamine and serotonin on resting-state networks: review and implications for psychiatric disorders. (47 citations)
  • Opposite effects of dopamine and serotonin on resting-state networks: review and implications for psychiatric disorders. (47 citations)
  • Opposite effects of dopamine and serotonin on resting-state networks: review and implications for psychiatric disorders. (47 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Resting state fMRI, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Substantia nigra and Bipolar disorder. His study in Prefrontal cortex, Anterior cingulate cortex, Default mode network, Premovement neuronal activity and Psychomotor learning is carried out as part of his studies in Neuroscience. The various areas that Georg Northoff examines in his Resting state fMRI study include Electroencephalography, Communication noise, Functional connectivity, Healthy subjects and Brain mapping.

His Communication noise course of study focuses on Range and Neural correlates of consciousness. He works mostly in the field of Functional magnetic resonance imaging, limiting it down to topics relating to Sensory system and, in certain cases, Precuneus, Eye movement and Connectome. Georg Northoff has researched Substantia nigra in several fields, including Basal ganglia, Psychiatry and Thalamus.
