Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation

John C. Rothwell mostly deals with Neuroscience, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Motor cortex, Stimulation and Electromyography. Neuroplasticity, Stimulus, Primary motor cortex, Transcranial direct-current stimulation and Brain stimulation are the core of his Neuroscience study. His Transcranial magnetic stimulation research incorporates elements of Synaptic plasticity, Premotor cortex, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Human brain.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Somatosensory system, Electrophysiology, Pyramidal tracts, Anatomy and Motor system. His research in Stimulation focuses on subjects like Cerebral cortex, which are connected to Posterior parietal cortex and Sensory system. His Electromyography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Motor unit, Swallowing, Nuclear magnetic resonance and Dysphagia.

His most cited work include:

  • Corticocortical inhibition in human motor cortex. (2550 citations)
  • Non-invasive electrical and magnetic stimulation of the brain, spinal cord and roots: basic principles and procedures for routine clinical application. Report of an IFCN committee (2506 citations)
  • Theta Burst Stimulation of the Human Motor Cortex (2360 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Motor cortex, Stimulation and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His research on Neuroscience often connects related topics like Premotor cortex. His Transcranial magnetic stimulation study combines topics in areas such as Motor system, Electromyography, Brain stimulation and Transcranial direct-current stimulation.

His Motor cortex research focuses on subjects like Swallowing, which are linked to Dysphagia. His Stimulation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cerebral cortex, Anesthesia, Sensory system and Anatomy. John C. Rothwell interconnects Stroke, Physical therapy and Parkinson's disease in the investigation of issues within Physical medicine and rehabilitation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (64.81%)
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (49.46%)
  • Motor cortex (35.73%)

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

  • Neuroscience (64.81%)
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (49.46%)
  • Stimulation (25.27%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Stimulation, Motor cortex and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Neurophysiology, Cerebellum, Dystonia and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential are the subjects of his Neuroscience studies. His study in Transcranial magnetic stimulation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Brain stimulation, Audiology and Electroencephalography.

His Stimulation research integrates issues from Peripheral, Somatosensory system, Neuroplasticity and Cortex. His Motor cortex study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Facilitation, Interneuron, Motor system and Pulse. John C. Rothwell combines subjects such as Stroke, Rehabilitation and Randomized controlled trial with his study of Physical medicine and rehabilitation.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Low intensity transcranial electric stimulation: Safety, ethical, legal regulatory and application guidelines (336 citations)
  • Past, present, and future of Parkinson's disease: A special essay on the 200th Anniversary of the Shaking Palsy (246 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:

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuron

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Stimulation, Transcranial direct-current stimulation and Motor cortex. John C. Rothwell is studying Primary motor cortex, which is a component of Transcranial magnetic stimulation. His studies deal with areas such as Synaptic plasticity, Cortex and Stop signal as well as Stimulation.

The concepts of his Transcranial direct-current stimulation study are interwoven with issues in Working memory, Central sulcus, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Current and Transcranial alternating current stimulation. His study in Motor cortex is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Motor system, Interference and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. His work deals with themes such as Cortical circuits, Neuroplasticity and Non invasive, which intersect with Brain stimulation.
