Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Retina
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience

His primary areas of study are Retina, Anatomy, Ganglion, Giant retinal ganglion cells and Retinal. His Retina study is concerned with the larger field of Neuroscience. His work in Ganglion addresses subjects such as Retinal ganglion, which are connected to disciplines such as Trichromacy and Biocytin.

The Electroretinography research he does as part of his general Retinal study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Tapetum lucidum, Nissl body and Neuro-ophthalmology, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. As a member of one scientific family, Luiz Carlos L. Silveira mostly works in the field of Midget cell, focusing on Parvocellular cell and, on occasion, Visual system, Spatial frequency and Audiology. His research in Retinal ganglion cell intersects with topics in Cortical magnification and Visual cortex.

His most cited work include:

  • The topography of magnocellular projecting ganglion cells (M-ganglion cells) in the primate retina (147 citations)
  • Retinal ganglion cell distribution in the cebus monkey: a comparison with the cortical magnification factors. (88 citations)
  • Methylmercury neurotoxicity & antioxidant defenses. (70 citations)

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

Luiz Carlos L. Silveira mostly deals with Neuroscience, Retina, Color vision, Anatomy and Luminance. Luiz Carlos L. Silveira has included themes like Retinal, Aotus azarae and Ganglion in his Retina study. His Color vision research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Chromatic scale, Hue, Audiology and Photopigment.

His studies deal with areas such as Visual impairment, Spatial frequency and Contrast as well as Audiology. His work deals with themes such as Nocturnal, Giant retinal ganglion cells and Rodent, which intersect with Anatomy. His Luminance research integrates issues from Stimulus and Psychophysics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (25.41%)
  • Retina (24.31%)
  • Color vision (22.10%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Color vision (22.10%)
  • Luminance (14.36%)
  • Stimulus (11.05%)

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

His main research concerns Color vision, Luminance, Stimulus, Chromatic scale and Audiology. His Color vision research incorporates elements of Amazonian, Hue and Environmental health. His Luminance research includes elements of Psychophysics, Electroretinography and Trichromacy.

Luiz Carlos L. Silveira focuses mostly in the field of Chromatic scale, narrowing it down to topics relating to Visual evoked cortical potential and, in certain cases, Evoked potential, Speech recognition and Nuclear magnetic resonance. The Audiology study combines topics in areas such as Adaptation, Visual cortex and Contrast. In general Retina study, his work on Retinal ganglion often relates to the realm of Nissl body, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The spatial properties of L- and M-cone inputs to electroretinograms that reflect different types of post-receptoral processing. (15 citations)
  • Emotional and motor symptoms in riverside dwellers exposed to mercury in the Amazon. (14 citations)
  • Colour Vision Impairment in Young Alcohol Consumers (10 citations)

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

  • Retina
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience

Luiz Carlos L. Silveira mostly deals with Amazon rainforest, Color vision, Environmental exposure, Luminance and Significant difference. His study in the field of Amazonian also crosses realms of Methylmercury and Drainage basin. Color Vision Defects is the focus of his Color vision research.

His work deals with themes such as Stimulus, Psychophysics and Chromaticity, which intersect with Luminance. His Psychophysics study is related to the wider topic of Neuroscience. Luiz Carlos L. Silveira studies Electroretinography which is a part of Neuroscience.
