Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition
  • Psychiatry

Louis Bherer mainly investigates Cognition, Executive functions, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Physical fitness and Physical exercise. The various areas that Louis Bherer examines in his Cognition study include Developmental psychology, Physical therapy and Injury prevention. Cardiovascular fitness, Cardiorespiratory fitness and Stroop effect is closely connected to Prefrontal cortex in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Executive functions.

In general Physical medicine and rehabilitation, his work in Posturography is often linked to Session linking many areas of study. His Physical fitness research includes elements of Neuropsychology, Young adult, Motor learning, Aerobic exercise and Serial reaction time. The Physical exercise study combines topics in areas such as Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance and Cognitive decline.

His most cited work include:

  • A review of the effects of physical activity and exercise on cognitive and brain functions in older adults. (458 citations)
  • Environmental Influences on Cognitive and Brain Plasticity During Aging (353 citations)
  • Training Effects on Dual-Task Performance: Are There Age-Related Differences in Plasticity of Attentional Control? (239 citations)

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

Louis Bherer spends much of his time researching Cognition, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Physical therapy, Internal medicine and Executive functions. His Cognition study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Psychological intervention, Gerontology and Cognitive decline. His research in Physical medicine and rehabilitation intersects with topics in Aerobic exercise, Physical exercise and Dementia.

His Physical therapy research includes themes of Cognitive skill and VO2 max. His Executive functions research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Physical fitness, Audiology, Neuropsychology, Working memory and Stroop effect. Within one scientific family, Louis Bherer focuses on topics pertaining to Attentional control under Audiology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Developmental psychology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognition (74.62%)
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (39.77%)
  • Physical therapy (30.68%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Cognition (74.62%)
  • Internal medicine (26.14%)
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (39.77%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cognition, Internal medicine, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Cardiology and Working memory. His Cognition research includes themes of Psychological intervention, Physical therapy, Aerobic exercise and Cognitive decline. The study incorporates disciplines such as Gross motor skill and Physical exercise in addition to Aerobic exercise.

Louis Bherer interconnects Range of motion, Stimulation and Ankle in the investigation of issues within Physical medicine and rehabilitation. The concepts of his Cardiology study are interwoven with issues in Arterial stiffness, Blood pressure and Neuropsychology. The various areas that Louis Bherer examines in his Working memory study include Analgesic, Perspective, Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance, Verbal memory and Executive functions.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Effects of Dance/Movement Training vs. Aerobic Exercise Training on cognition, physical fitness and quality of life in older adults: A randomized controlled trial. (18 citations)
  • Physical Activity and Exercise (11 citations)
  • Physical exercise training effect and mediation through cardiorespiratory fitness on dual-task performances differ in younger-old and older-old adults. (11 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition
  • Psychiatry

Louis Bherer focuses on Cognition, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Aerobic exercise, Physical therapy and Rehabilitation. He is studying Cognitive training, which is a component of Cognition. He has included themes like Lewy body, Executive functions, Neurodegeneration and Frontotemporal dementia in his Physical medicine and rehabilitation study.

His studies in Executive functions integrate themes in fields like Cognitive load, Gait and Postural control, Balance. His Aerobic exercise study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gross motor skill and Working memory. His Rehabilitation research incorporates themes from Clinical research, Public health and Medical emergency.
