What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Memory consolidation, Sleep in non-human animals, Slow-wave sleep and Endocrinology. His Memory consolidation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Childhood memory, Cognitive science, Procedural memory and Encoding. Jan Born has included themes like Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance, Brain state and Eye movement in his Sleep in non-human animals study.

His research on Slow-wave sleep also deals with topics like

  • Non-rapid eye movement sleep which connect with Audiology,
  • Sleep and memory which is related to area like Local sleep. His Endocrinology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Internal medicine and Immune system. His Electroencephalography study incorporates themes from Stimulation and Rhythm.

His most cited work include:

  • The memory function of sleep (2210 citations)
  • Boosting slow oscillations during sleep potentiates memory (1317 citations)
  • About sleep's role in memory (1249 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience, Sleep in non-human animals and Memory consolidation. Jan Born has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Diabetes mellitus, Immune system and Nasal administration. Sleep in non-human animals is frequently linked to Eye movement in his study.

The concepts of his Memory consolidation study are interwoven with issues in Cognitive psychology, Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance, Procedural memory and Episodic memory. His Wakefulness study combines topics in areas such as Developmental psychology and Audiology. His Slow-wave sleep research includes themes of Rapid eye movement sleep and Sleep and memory.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (45.07%)
  • Endocrinology (44.93%)
  • Neuroscience (32.88%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (32.88%)
  • Memory consolidation (22.74%)
  • Sleep in non-human animals (27.12%)

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

Jan Born mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Memory consolidation, Sleep in non-human animals, Wakefulness and Sleep. Sleep spindle, Slow-wave sleep, Electroencephalography, Hippocampal formation and Hippocampus are subfields of Neuroscience in which his conducts study. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Slow-wave sleep, concentrating on Stimulation and intersecting with Oscillation.

The Memory consolidation study combines topics in areas such as Encoding, Forgetting, Neuron, Procedural memory and Episodic memory. His Sleep in non-human animals research integrates issues from Calcium imaging, Rhythm and Circadian rhythm. His Wakefulness research incorporates elements of Developmental psychology, Aplysia, Cognition and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Thalamic Spindles Promote Memory Formation during Sleep through Triple Phase-Locking of Cortical, Thalamic, and Hippocampal Rhythms (221 citations)
  • Mechanisms of systems memory consolidation during sleep. (151 citations)
  • Effects of tDCS on motor learning and memory formation: A consensus and critical position paper (150 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience

Jan Born mainly investigates Neuroscience, Memory consolidation, Sleep in non-human animals, Sleep spindle and Wakefulness. His Neuroscience study focuses mostly on Slow-wave sleep, Electroencephalography, Hippocampus and Neuroscience of sleep. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Hormone and Sleep Stages.

His research in Memory consolidation intersects with topics in Cognitive psychology, Forgetting and Episodic memory. In his study, Aldosterone, Immune system and Prolactin is inextricably linked to Stimulation, which falls within the broad field of Sleep in non-human animals. His work deals with themes such as Developmental psychology, Rapid eye movement sleep, Long-term memory and Audiology, which intersect with Wakefulness.
