2007 - Grawemeyer Award in Psychology, University of Louisville
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.
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.
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.
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.
