What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuron

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Motor cortex, Stimulation and Neuroplasticity. His study brings together the fields of Stroke and Neuroscience. His Transcranial magnetic stimulation research incorporates elements of Evoked potential, Somatosensory system and Brain mapping.

His Motor cortex research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Electromyography, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Anatomy, Scalp and Motor learning. His research in Stimulation intersects with topics in Nerve block, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Amputation. His work carried out in the field of Neuroplasticity brings together such families of science as Synaptic plasticity, Abductor pollicis brevis muscle and Psychological intervention.

His most cited work include:

  • Transcranial direct current stimulation: State of the art 2008 (1994 citations)
  • Depression of motor cortex excitability by low-frequency transcranial magnetic stimulation. (1695 citations)
  • Transcranial DC stimulation (tDCS): a tool for double-blind sham-controlled clinical studies in brain stimulation. (1162 citations)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Motor cortex, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Stimulation. All of his Neuroscience and Primary motor cortex, Neuroplasticity, Brain stimulation, Electromyography and Somatosensory system investigations are sub-components of the entire Neuroscience study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Electrophysiology, Audiology, Stimulus, Neuroimaging and Motor system.

Leonardo G. Cohen works mostly in the field of Motor cortex, limiting it down to topics relating to Motor skill and, in certain cases, Cognitive psychology. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation research includes themes of Stroke, Chronic stroke, Physical therapy and Sensory stimulation therapy. His research in Stimulation is mostly focused on Transcranial direct-current stimulation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (58.39%)
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (37.47%)
  • Motor cortex (30.72%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (58.39%)
  • Stroke (20.92%)
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (25.93%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Stroke, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Transcranial direct-current stimulation and Transcranial magnetic stimulation. His study in Neuroscience concentrates on Brain stimulation, Primary motor cortex, Brain activity and meditation, Magnetoencephalography and Motor cortex. The concepts of his Stroke study are interwoven with issues in Rehabilitation, Physical therapy and Spasticity.

Leonardo G. Cohen interconnects Sensory stimulation therapy, Neuroplasticity, Randomized controlled trial and Functional electrical stimulation in the investigation of issues within Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His Transcranial direct-current stimulation study is concerned with Stimulation in general. His study looks at the relationship between Transcranial magnetic stimulation and topics such as Biomedical engineering, which overlap with Noise reduction, Electromagnetic coil and Orientation.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A technical guide to tDCS, and related non-invasive brain stimulation tools (556 citations)
  • Effects of tDCS on motor learning and memory formation: A consensus and critical position paper (150 citations)
  • Efficacy and safety of non-immersive virtual reality exercising in stroke rehabilitation (EVREST): a randomised, multicentre, single-blind, controlled trial (141 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Stroke, Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Stimulation. His study involves Brain activity and meditation and Cognition, a branch of Neuroscience. His work investigates the relationship between Brain activity and meditation and topics such as Magnetoencephalography that intersect with problems in Working memory, Nerve net and Motor cortex.

In his research, Timeline, Brain Structure and Function and Clinical trial is intimately related to Rehabilitation, which falls under the overarching field of Stroke. Leonardo G. Cohen combines subjects such as Cognitive psychology, Adaptation and Motor learning with his study of Transcranial direct-current stimulation. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation study combines topics in areas such as Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Randomized controlled trial, Stroke patient, Physical therapy and Neuroplasticity.
