What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition

Herta Flor mostly deals with Neuroscience, Chronic pain, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Somatosensory system and Physical therapy. Herta Flor has researched Chronic pain in several fields, including Back pain and Clinical psychology, Mood. Her Functional magnetic resonance imaging study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Arousal, Prefrontal cortex, Orbitofrontal cortex, Thalamus and Ventral striatum.

Her Somatosensory system study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Anatomy, Imaging phantom, Phantom limb and Neuroplasticity. Her Physical medicine and rehabilitation study combines topics in areas such as Phantom limb pain and Electroencephalography. The various areas that Herta Flor examines in her Physical therapy study include Psychological intervention, Motor Deficit and Cognitive therapy.

Her most cited work include:

  • Quantitative sensory testing in the German Research Network on Neuropathic Pain (DFNS): Standardized protocol and reference values (1516 citations)
  • Phantom-limb pain as a perceptual correlate of cortical reorganization following arm amputation (1441 citations)
  • A spelling device for the paralysed (1272 citations)

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

Herta Flor spends much of her time researching Neuroscience, Clinical psychology, Chronic pain, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Cognition. Her work in Somatosensory system, Amygdala, Ventral striatum, Cortex and Brain mapping are all subfields of Neuroscience research. Her Somatosensory system research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Sensory system, Anatomy, Somatosensory evoked potential, Neuroplasticity and Phantom limb.

Her work deals with themes such as Developmental psychology and Cognitive psychology, which intersect with Amygdala. The Clinical psychology study combines topics in areas such as Psychiatry, Neuroimaging and Personality. As a part of the same scientific family, Herta Flor mostly works in the field of Chronic pain, focusing on Physical medicine and rehabilitation and, on occasion, Phantom limb pain.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (24.27%)
  • Clinical psychology (25.60%)
  • Chronic pain (15.60%)

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

  • Clinical psychology (25.60%)
  • Neuroimaging (11.07%)
  • Neuroscience (24.27%)

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

Herta Flor mainly focuses on Clinical psychology, Neuroimaging, Neuroscience, Psychopathology and Cognition. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Personality, Substance abuse, Cannabis and Amygdala. Much of her study explores Neuroscience relationship to Anxiety.

Her Psychopathology study incorporates themes from Young adult, Internal medicine, Etiology and Neural correlates of consciousness. Her research investigates the connection with Functional magnetic resonance imaging and areas like Prefrontal cortex which intersect with concerns in Cohort. Her Somatosensory system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Perception, Sensory system, Phantom limb pain, Chronic pain and Neuroplasticity.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The revised International Association for the Study of Pain definition of pain: concepts, challenges, and compromises. (129 citations)
  • The genetic architecture of the human cerebral cortex. (116 citations)
  • Addiction Research Consortium: Losing and regaining control over drug intake (ReCoDe)-From trajectories to mechanisms and interventions. (40 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience

Clinical psychology, Neuroimaging, Psychopathology, Anticipation and Neuroscience are her primary areas of study. Her research in Clinical psychology intersects with topics in Psychosocial, Neuropsychology, Disease and Personality. Neuroscience is a component of her Perception, Motor control and Sensory system studies.

Herta Flor focuses mostly in the field of Ventral striatum, narrowing it down to matters related to Insula and, in some cases, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Associative learning and Classical conditioning. Her research integrates issues of Somatosensory system and Amputation, Phantom limb in her study of Brain activity and meditation. Her Anxiety research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Incidence, Phantom limb pain, Physical therapy, Chronic pain and Risk factor.
