Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cognition

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Premotor cortex, Mirror neuron, Common coding theory and Mu wave. His work is connected to Motor cortex, Visual perception, Neurophysiology, Neuron and Parietal lobe, as a part of Neuroscience. Leonardo Fogassi has included themes like Facilitation, Transcranial magnetic stimulation and Action observation in his Motor cortex study.

In his work, Functional organization and Visual cortex is strongly intertwined with Macaque, which is a subfield of Visual perception. His research in Premotor cortex intersects with topics in Somatosensory system, Electrophysiology, Communication, Space perception and Gesture. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Inferior parietal lobule and Imitation.

His most cited work include:

  • Action recognition in the premotor cortex (3668 citations)
  • Premotor cortex and the recognition of motor actions. (3443 citations)
  • Neurophysiological mechanisms underlying the understanding and imitation of action. (2488 citations)

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

Neuroscience, Mirror neuron, Premotor cortex, Macaque and Motor cortex are his primary areas of study. His study connects Communication and Neuroscience. His Mirror neuron study focuses on Common coding theory in particular.

The concepts of his Premotor cortex study are interwoven with issues in Electrophysiology, Perception, Gaze, Inferior frontal gyrus and Forelimb. His research investigates the connection between Macaque and topics such as Anatomy that intersect with issues in Microstimulation. His studies in Neurophysiology integrate themes in fields like Somatosensory system, Cognitive science and Social cognition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (74.50%)
  • Mirror neuron (46.31%)
  • Premotor cortex (40.27%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (74.50%)
  • Macaque (30.87%)
  • Mirror neuron (46.31%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Macaque, Mirror neuron, Premotor cortex and Motor cortex. His work in the fields of Prefrontal cortex overlaps with other areas such as Population. His Macaque study incorporates themes from Neurophysiology, Electrophysiology, Motor area, Dorsum and Biomedical engineering.

His research integrates issues of Representation, Inferior parietal lobule and Imitation in his study of Mirror neuron. The Premotor cortex study combines topics in areas such as Lateralization of brain function, Neuroplasticity, Perception and Premotor Areas. His study explores the link between Motor cortex and topics such as Forelimb that cross with problems in Dorsolateral and Contrast.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The mirror mechanism: recent findings and perspectives (149 citations)
  • Space-dependent representation of objects and other's action in monkey ventral premotor grasping neurons. (73 citations)
  • Mirror Neuron Activation Prior to Action Observation in a Predictable Context (46 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cognition

Leonardo Fogassi mostly deals with Neuroscience, Mirror neuron, Premotor cortex, Macaque and Prefrontal cortex. His Neuroscience research integrates issues from Representation and Action observation. His studies deal with areas such as Neuron and Secondary somatosensory cortex as well as Mirror neuron.

He interconnects Cortical processing, Premotor Areas, Affordance, Form perception and Observer in the investigation of issues within Premotor cortex. His Prefrontal cortex research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biological neural network, Temporal Regions, Dorsum and Posterior parietal cortex. He combines subjects such as Visual perception, Dorsolateral, Forelimb and Contrast with his study of Motor cortex.
