Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Neuroscience
  • Statistics

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Artificial intelligence, Inference, Brain mapping and Functional magnetic resonance imaging. Many of his studies on Neuroscience apply to Cerebral blood flow as well. His Artificial intelligence research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Machine learning and Pattern recognition.

Karl J. Friston studied Inference and Perception that intersect with Cognitive psychology. The Brain mapping study which covers Neuroimaging that intersects with Functional integration. The concepts of his Functional magnetic resonance imaging study are interwoven with issues in Functional imaging, Visual cortex and Electroencephalography.

His most cited work include:

  • Statistical parametric maps in functional imaging: A general linear approach (8428 citations)
  • Voxel-Based Morphometry—The Methods (6728 citations)
  • A voxel-based morphometric study of ageing in 465 normal adult human brains. (3874 citations)

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

Karl J. Friston mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Artificial intelligence, Inference, Cognitive psychology and Bayesian inference. Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Brain mapping, Electroencephalography, Visual cortex and Cognition are subfields of Neuroscience in which his conducts study. Karl J. Friston combines topics linked to Prefrontal cortex with his work on Functional magnetic resonance imaging.

His research investigates the connection with Artificial intelligence and areas like Dynamic causal modelling which intersect with concerns in Causal model. His research in Inference focuses on subjects like Perception, which are connected to Sensory system. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Context and Prior probability.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (36.15%)
  • Artificial intelligence (24.67%)
  • Inference (20.09%)

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

  • Inference (20.09%)
  • Neuroscience (36.15%)
  • Dynamic causal modelling (11.25%)

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

His primary areas of study are Inference, Neuroscience, Dynamic causal modelling, Cognitive science and Bayesian inference. His study on Inference is covered under Artificial intelligence. His Artificial intelligence study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Machine learning, State space and Pattern recognition.

He works mostly in the field of Dynamic causal modelling, limiting it down to topics relating to Causal model and, in certain cases, Time series. Karl J. Friston interconnects Consciousness, Cognition and Embodied cognition in the investigation of issues within Cognitive science. The various areas that he examines in his Bayesian inference study include Mortality rate and Prior probability.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Predictive Processes and the Peculiar Case of Music. (109 citations)
  • Analysis of family-wise error rates in statistical parametric mapping using random field theory. (98 citations)
  • REBUS and the Anarchic Brain: Toward a Unified Model of the Brain Action of Psychedelics. (95 citations)

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

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Statistics
  • Neuroscience

Karl J. Friston focuses on Inference, Cognitive psychology, Cognitive science, Neuroscience and Artificial intelligence. His research integrates issues of Perception, Cognition, Bayesian probability, Bayesian inference and Generative grammar in his study of Inference. His Bayes' theorem study in the realm of Bayesian probability interacts with subjects such as Information geometry.

His Cognitive psychology research includes themes of Computational neuroscience, Salient, Metacognition and Conceptualization. His research in the fields of Externalism overlaps with other disciplines such as Message passing. In his work, Parametric statistics is strongly intertwined with Machine learning, which is a subfield of Artificial intelligence.
