Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Cerebral cortex
  • Neuron

Leah Krubitzer mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Anatomy, Cortex, Somatosensory system and Posterior parietal cortex. Her work on Neuroscience deals in particular with Neocortex, Sensory system and Lateral sulcus. As a part of the same scientific family, Leah Krubitzer mostly works in the field of Neocortex, focusing on Cortical field and, on occasion, Set.

Her work carried out in the field of Anatomy brings together such families of science as Cerebral cortex, Motor cortex, Visual cortex and Supplementary motor area. Her Somatosensory system research incorporates themes from Auditory cortex, Parietal lobe, Macaque, Primate and Functional magnetic resonance imaging. Leah Krubitzer works mostly in the field of Posterior parietal cortex, limiting it down to topics relating to Corpus callosum and, in certain cases, Meridian, Temporal cortex and Color vision, as a part of the same area of interest.

Her most cited work include:

  • Reorganization of retinotopic cortical maps in adult mammals after lesions of the retina (597 citations)
  • Frontal eye field as defined by intracortical microstimulation in squirrel monkeys, owl monkeys, and macaque monkeys. II. Cortical connections. (564 citations)
  • A redefinition of somatosensory areas in the lateral sulcus of macaque monkeys (295 citations)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Somatosensory system, Anatomy, Neocortex and Cortex. Her study in Sensory system, Posterior parietal cortex, Visual cortex, Receptive field and Macaque falls within the category of Neuroscience. The Somatosensory system study combines topics in areas such as Electrophysiology, Parietal lobe, Nucleus, Opossum and Brain mapping.

Her Anatomy research includes elements of Ventral posterior nucleus, Thalamus and Lateral sulcus. Within one scientific family, Leah Krubitzer focuses on topics pertaining to Phenotype under Neocortex, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Epigenetics. The concepts of her Cortex study are interwoven with issues in Cerebral cortex and Auditory cortex.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (76.54%)
  • Somatosensory system (40.12%)
  • Anatomy (40.12%)

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

  • Neuroscience (76.54%)
  • Somatosensory system (40.12%)
  • Neocortex (30.25%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Somatosensory system, Neocortex, Sensory system and Opossum. Neuroscience is closely attributed to Phenotype in her work. Her Somatosensory system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Macaque, Forelimb, Flexibility and Cortex.

In her research on the topic of Macaque, Primary motor cortex is strongly related with Anatomy. The various areas that she examines in her Cortex study include Thalamus and Brainstem. Many of her research projects under Sensory system are closely connected to Experimental research with Experimental research, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The Combinatorial Creature: Cortical Phenotypes within and across Lifetimes (23 citations)
  • Cortical connections of area 2 and posterior parietal area 5 in macaque monkeys. (13 citations)
  • A Modular Approach to Vocal Learning: Disentangling the Diversity of a Complex Behavioral Trait. (12 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Neuron
  • Cerebral cortex

Her main research concerns Neuroscience, Neocortex, Somatosensory system, Sensory system and Posterior parietal cortex. When carried out as part of a general Neuroscience research project, her work on Mammalian brain is frequently linked to work in Gene sequence, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Phenotype and Forelimb in addition to Neocortex.

Her Somatosensory system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Stimulus modality, Receptive field and Crossmodal. Her work on Sensory input as part of her general Sensory system study is frequently connected to Experimental research, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. Her work focuses on many connections between Posterior parietal cortex and other disciplines, such as Motor cortex, that overlap with her field of interest in Supplementary motor area, Anatomy and Cortex.
