Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cognition

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Visual cortex, Cortex, Temporal cortex and Visual system. His study in Posterior parietal cortex, Visual memory, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Brain mapping and Biased Competition Theory is done as part of Neuroscience. Leslie G. Ungerleider has included themes like Receptive field, Facial expression, Anatomy and Attentional control in his Visual cortex study.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Object and Intraparietal sulcus. The study incorporates disciplines such as Orientation column and Binocular neurons in addition to Temporal cortex. He has researched Visual system in several fields, including Neuroanatomy and Visual N1.

His most cited work include:

  • Two cortical visual systems (3919 citations)
  • Object vision and spatial vision: two cortical pathways (2070 citations)
  • Mechanisms of Visual Attention in the Human Cortex (1762 citations)

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

Leslie G. Ungerleider spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Visual cortex, Cognitive psychology, Temporal cortex and Cortex. His work in Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Posterior parietal cortex, Extrastriate cortex, Brain mapping and Visual system are all subfields of Neuroscience research. His study in Functional magnetic resonance imaging is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Facial expression, Human brain and Amygdala.

His Visual cortex study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Receptive field, Macaque, Anatomy, Visual perception and Visual field. The concepts of his Cognitive psychology study are interwoven with issues in Social psychology, Perception, Face perception, Stimulus and Working memory. His research in Temporal cortex tackles topics such as Communication which are related to areas like Pattern recognition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (59.11%)
  • Visual cortex (30.24%)
  • Cognitive psychology (19.59%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (59.11%)
  • Artificial intelligence (9.28%)
  • Neuroimaging (7.56%)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Artificial intelligence, Neuroimaging, Cognitive psychology and Macaque. Neuroscience is a component of his Visual cortex, Face perception, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Amygdala and Superior temporal sulcus studies. Leslie G. Ungerleider combines subjects such as Prefrontal cortex and Intraparietal sulcus with his study of Visual cortex.

The various areas that Leslie G. Ungerleider examines in his Artificial intelligence study include Computer vision and Pattern recognition. The Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Pareidolia, Perception and Latent variable. His Macaque research includes themes of Cortical surface and Primate.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • An Open Resource for Non-human Primate Imaging (95 citations)
  • A population MRI brain template and analysis tools for the macaque (80 citations)
  • The Superior Temporal Sulcus Is Causally Connected to the Amygdala: A Combined TBS-fMRI Study. (38 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cognition

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Neuroimaging, Amygdala, Face perception and Fusiform face area. His works in Superior temporal sulcus, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Visual cortex, Brain mapping and Cortical surface are all subjects of inquiry into Neuroscience. He works mostly in the field of Functional magnetic resonance imaging, limiting it down to topics relating to Visual field and, in certain cases, Facial expression, Visual space, Medial frontal gyrus, Stimulus and Visual processing.

His work carried out in the field of Visual cortex brings together such families of science as Prefrontal cortex and Intraparietal sulcus. His Neuroimaging research incorporates themes from Cognitive science, Human Connectome Project and Macaque. In his study, Salience, Illusion, Face and Face detection is strongly linked to Eye movement, which falls under the umbrella field of Face perception.
