Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Epilepsy
  • Neuroscience

Laura Tassi mostly deals with Epilepsy, Epilepsy surgery, Pathology, Cortical dysplasia and Magnetic resonance imaging. Her Epilepsy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Central nervous system disease and Electroencephalography. While the research belongs to areas of Epilepsy surgery, Laura Tassi spends her time largely on the problem of Surgery, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Age of onset, Pediatrics and Cohort.

Her Pathology research includes themes of White matter and Neuroradiology. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Hippocampal sclerosis, Neurology, Dysplasia and Epileptogenesis. Her work focuses on many connections between Magnetic resonance imaging and other disciplines, such as Lesion, that overlap with her field of interest in Neocortex and Gliosis.

Her most cited work include:

  • The clinicopathologic spectrum of focal cortical dysplasias: A consensus classification proposed by an ad hoc Task Force of the ILAE Diagnostic Methods Commission (1092 citations)
  • Focal cortical dysplasia: neuropathological subtypes, EEG, neuroimaging and surgical outcome. (505 citations)
  • Histopathological Findings in Brain Tissue Obtained during Epilepsy Surgery (257 citations)

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

Epilepsy, Epilepsy surgery, Cortical dysplasia, Neuroscience and Pathology are her primary areas of study. Her research integrates issues of Surgery and Electroencephalography in her study of Epilepsy. Her work carried out in the field of Epilepsy surgery brings together such families of science as Drug Resistant Epilepsy, Internal medicine, Retrospective cohort study, Magnetic resonance imaging and Pediatrics.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Lesion, Neuropathology, Dysplasia and Hyperintensity in addition to Cortical dysplasia. Her work on Stimulation, Sensory system, Non-rapid eye movement sleep and Sleep in non-human animals as part of general Neuroscience study is frequently connected to Central pattern generator, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. Laura Tassi has researched Pathology in several fields, including Cerebral cortex, White matter, Cortex and Anatomy.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Epilepsy (60.08%)
  • Epilepsy surgery (39.08%)
  • Cortical dysplasia (26.05%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Epilepsy (60.08%)
  • Epilepsy surgery (39.08%)
  • Cortical dysplasia (26.05%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Epilepsy, Epilepsy surgery, Cortical dysplasia, Electroencephalography and Temporal lobe. Her studies deal with areas such as Internal medicine, Retrospective cohort study, Neurosurgery, Radiology and Neurology as well as Epilepsy. The concepts of her Epilepsy surgery study are interwoven with issues in Hippocampal sclerosis, Ictal, Magnetic resonance imaging and Audiology.

Laura Tassi interconnects PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway, Allele, Pediatrics and Pathology in the investigation of issues within Cortical dysplasia. Her Electroencephalography study incorporates themes from Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Cardiac monitoring and Auditory cortex. Her Temporal lobe study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Interventional radiology, White matter, Diffusion MRI and Focal Epilepsies.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Stereoelectroencephalography: retrospective analysis of 742 procedures in a single centre. (34 citations)
  • Seizure progression and inflammatory mediators promote pericytosis and pericyte-microglia clustering at the cerebrovasculature. (31 citations)
  • Electroencephalography at the time of Covid-19 pandemic in Italy. (16 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Epilepsy
  • Neuroscience

Laura Tassi focuses on Epilepsy, Epilepsy surgery, Cortical dysplasia, Electroencephalography and Ictal. Her research on Epilepsy focuses in particular on Stereoelectroencephalography. Her Stereoelectroencephalography research includes themes of Hippocampal sclerosis and Surgery.

In her study, Abnormality, Radiology and Neuropathology is strongly linked to Histopathology, which falls under the umbrella field of Epilepsy surgery. Her Cortical dysplasia study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Drug Resistant Epilepsy and Encephalomalacia, Etiology, Pathology. Her Ictal research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Frontal lobe and Audiology.
