Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Statistics

Gilles Pourtois mainly focuses on Cognitive psychology, Facial expression, Neuroscience, Visual cortex and Stimulus. His Cognitive psychology research incorporates themes from Orbitofrontal cortex, Emotional prosody, Perception, Face perception and Anger. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Perception, focusing on Sensory system and, on occasion, Sensory cue.

His work deals with themes such as Temporal cortex, Cognition, Emotional expression, Visual perception and Brain mapping, which intersect with Facial expression. His studies deal with areas such as Visual field, Cortex and Amygdala as well as Visual cortex. His study explores the link between Event-related potential and topics such as Anterior cingulate cortex that cross with problems in Posterior cingulate and Impulsivity.

His most cited work include:

  • Distributed and interactive brain mechanisms during emotion face perception: Evidence from functional neuroimaging (883 citations)
  • Revisiting Snodgrass and Vanderwart's object pictorial set : the role of surface detail in basic-level object recognition (730 citations)
  • Electrophysiological Correlates of Rapid Spatial Orienting Towards Fearful Faces (538 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Cognitive psychology, Electroencephalography, Neuroscience, Cognition and Perception. His Cognitive psychology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Stimulus, Anterior cingulate cortex, Facial expression and Event-related potential. Gilles Pourtois works mostly in the field of Facial expression, limiting it down to topics relating to Set and, in certain cases, Representation, as a part of the same area of interest.

He works mostly in the field of Electroencephalography, limiting it down to topics relating to Neurophysiology and, in certain cases, Dissociation. The Cognition study combines topics in areas such as Developmental psychology, Affect and Anxiety. His Perception research includes elements of Working memory, Sensory system and Transcranial magnetic stimulation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (60.23%)
  • Electroencephalography (27.27%)
  • Neuroscience (25.57%)

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

  • Cognitive psychology (60.23%)
  • Electroencephalography (27.27%)
  • Cognition (25.57%)

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

Gilles Pourtois spends much of his time researching Cognitive psychology, Electroencephalography, Cognition, Perception and Neuroscience. By researching both Cognitive psychology and Performance monitoring, he produces research that crosses academic boundaries. His Electroencephalography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Valence, Neurophysiology, Audiology, Anterior cingulate cortex and Expectancy theory.

His Perception research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Working memory, Facial expression and Visual cortex. Gilles Pourtois has included themes like Visual processing and Sensory processing in his Visual cortex study. His studies in Neuroscience integrate themes in fields like Aversive conditioning and Tinnitus.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Occipital alpha power reveals fast attentional inhibition of incongruent distractors. (31 citations)
  • Motivational Salience Modulates Early Visual Cortex Responses across Task Sets. (28 citations)
  • Independent effects of motivation and spatial attention in the human visual cortex. (19 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Statistics

Cognitive psychology, Electroencephalography, Cognition, Perception and Anterior cingulate cortex are his primary areas of study. Gilles Pourtois interconnects Arousal, Event-related potential and Affect in the investigation of issues within Cognitive psychology. Gilles Pourtois has researched Electroencephalography in several fields, including Valence, Anticipation and Mood.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Stimulus and Visual cortex. His Anterior cingulate cortex research integrates issues from Expectancy theory and Posterior cingulate. His study looks at the relationship between N2pc and topics such as Working memory, which overlap with Facial expression.
