Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Anatomy
  • Cerebral cortex

Jon H. Kaas mostly deals with Neuroscience, Anatomy, Cortex, Somatosensory system and Receptive field. His works in Sensory system, Motor cortex, Visual cortex, Neocortex and Primate are all subjects of inquiry into Neuroscience. His research in Anatomy intersects with topics in Cerebral cortex, Visual field, Supplementary motor area and Thalamus.

His study in Cortex is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Macaque, Auditory cortex, Posterior parietal cortex, Microstimulation and Brain mapping. His Somatosensory system study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Somatosensory evoked potential, Neuroplasticity, Central nervous system and Median nerve. He focuses mostly in the field of Receptive field, narrowing it down to matters related to Neuron and, in some cases, Stimulus.

His most cited work include:

  • Massive cortical reorganization after sensory deafferentation in adult macaques (906 citations)
  • Topographic reorganization of somatosensory cortical areas 3b and 1 in adult monkeys following restricted deafferentation (877 citations)
  • Plasticity of sensory and motor maps in adult mammals. (831 citations)

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

Neuroscience, Anatomy, Cortex, Somatosensory system and Visual cortex are his primary areas of study. His work is connected to Sensory system, Primate, Thalamus, Posterior parietal cortex and Macaque, as a part of Neuroscience. His Anatomy research includes elements of Cerebral cortex, Lateral geniculate nucleus, Receptive field and Nucleus.

Jon H. Kaas combines subjects such as Cerebral hemisphere, Temporal lobe, Primary motor cortex and Auditory cortex with his study of Cortex. His Somatosensory system research includes themes of Somatosensory evoked potential, Spinal cord injury, Spinal cord and Forelimb. His Visual cortex research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Prosimian and Galago.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (74.73%)
  • Anatomy (52.17%)
  • Cortex (37.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (74.73%)
  • Visual cortex (27.62%)
  • Cortex (37.00%)

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

Jon H. Kaas spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Visual cortex, Cortex, Somatosensory system and Anatomy. His work in Primate, Sensory system, Posterior parietal cortex, Neocortex and Motor cortex is related to Neuroscience. His Visual cortex study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Superior colliculus, Prosimian and Macaque.

His Cortex research incorporates elements of Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Neuron. His Somatosensory system study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sensory stimulation therapy, Spinal cord injury, Spinal cord, Somatosensory evoked potential and Sensory loss. His study focuses on the intersection of Anatomy and fields such as Thalamus with connections in the field of Nervous system and Brain size.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Geometric Structure of the Brain Fiber Pathways (355 citations)
  • The evolution of brains from early mammals to humans. (141 citations)
  • Brain scaling in mammalian evolution as a consequence of concerted and mosaic changes in numbers of neurons and average neuronal cell size. (108 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Neuron
  • Cerebral cortex

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Visual cortex, Cortex, Anatomy and Primate. His study in Neuron, Neocortex, Somatosensory system, Motor cortex and Sensory system is carried out as part of his Neuroscience studies. His Somatosensory system research incorporates themes from Spinal cord injury and Premovement neuronal activity.

His studies in Visual cortex integrate themes in fields like Prosimian, Stereology and Macaque. His study in Anatomy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Thalamus, Brainstem, Primary motor cortex, Brain size and Spinal cord. The concepts of his Primate study are interwoven with issues in White matter and Human evolution.
