Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Internal medicine

Joachim Hermsdörfer focuses on Apraxia, Lateralization of brain function, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Cognitive psychology and Neuroscience. In Apraxia, he works on issues like Communication, which are connected to Constraint, Repetitive movements, Affordance and Human–computer interaction. His study in Lateralization of brain function is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Developmental psychology, Laterality, Kinematics and Gesture.

His Developmental psychology research incorporates themes from Perception and Motor control. His work on Grip force as part of general Physical medicine and rehabilitation research is often related to Body movement and Load force, thus linking different fields of science. His Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Neural correlates of consciousness, Cognition and Inferior frontal gyrus.

His most cited work include:

  • Grip force control during object manipulation in cerebral stroke. (204 citations)
  • Pantomime of Tool Use Depends on Integrity of Left Inferior Frontal Cortex (157 citations)
  • It takes the whole brain to make a cup of coffee: the neuropsychology of naturalistic actions involving technical devices. (142 citations)

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

Joachim Hermsdörfer mainly focuses on Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Apraxia, Grip force, Neuroscience and Cognitive psychology. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Hand strength, Kinematics, Motor control, Developmental psychology and Anticipation. He has researched Apraxia in several fields, including Lateralization of brain function, Brain damage, Cognition and Activities of daily living.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Laterality and Gesture. As a part of the same scientific family, Joachim Hermsdörfer mostly works in the field of Grip force, focusing on Writer's cramp and, on occasion, Communication. Joachim Hermsdörfer has included themes like Somatosensory system and Internal model in his Sensory system study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (42.79%)
  • Apraxia (22.89%)
  • Grip force (18.41%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (42.79%)
  • Activities of daily living (9.95%)
  • Cognition (9.45%)

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

His main research concerns Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Activities of daily living, Cognition, Motor control and Apraxia. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation research includes themes of Rehabilitation, Kinematics, Linear regression, Developmental psychology and Lateralization of brain function. His Cognition study also includes

  • Cognitive psychology which intersects with area such as Perception,
  • Contrast which connect with Right middle frontal gyrus.

His Motor control research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Grip force, Social psychology, Anticipation and Subthalamic nucleus. His studies deal with areas such as Acceleration and Simulation as well as Grip force. His research in Apraxia intersects with topics in Lesion, Stroke, Dementia, Premotor cortex and Voxel.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Smoothness Metrics in Complex Movement Tasks. (26 citations)
  • Fine motor skills predict performance in the Jebsen Taylor Hand Function Test after stroke. (25 citations)
  • The application of SHERPA (Systematic Human Error Reduction and Prediction Approach) in the development of compensatory cognitive rehabilitation strategies for stroke patients with left and right brain damage (22 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of study are Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Activities of daily living, Cognition, Stroke and Developmental psychology. Borrowing concepts from Hand held, Joachim Hermsdörfer weaves in ideas under Physical medicine and rehabilitation. The Cognition study combines topics in areas such as Lateralization of brain function, Kinematics and Physical therapy, Hand dominance.

His study in Lateralization of brain function is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Apraxia, Aphasia, Sensory loss and Transcranial magnetic stimulation. His Apraxia study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Neuroscience. His Developmental psychology research integrates issues from Stimulation, Anticipation, Upper limb and Posterior parietal cortex.
