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 Communication, Visual perception, Cognition, Neuroscience and Cognitive science. His Communication research includes themes of Stimulus, Perceptual psychology, Olfaction and Sensory Physiology. His Visual perception study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Visual cognition and Cognitive psychology.

His Cognition research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Sensory system and Categorization. His Neuroscience research integrates issues from Olfactory conditioning, Honey bee and Honey Bees. His Cognitive science study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Concept learning, Associative learning and Flexibility.

His most cited work include:

  • The concepts of ‘sameness’ and ‘difference’ in an insect (424 citations)
  • Cognitive architecture of a mini-brain: the honeybee (383 citations)
  • Behavioral and neural analysis of associative learning in the honeybee: a taste from the magic well. (350 citations)

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

Martin Giurfa mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Communication, Stimulus, Olfactory Learning and Cognition. His work deals with themes such as Classical conditioning and Conditioning, which intersect with Neuroscience. His Communication study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Discrimination learning, Cognitive psychology, Honey Bees, Visual perception and Reinforcement.

His studies examine the connections between Stimulus and genetics, as well as such issues in Artificial intelligence, with regards to Achromatic lens, Chromatic scale, Computer vision and Contrast. His study focuses on the intersection of Olfactory Learning and fields such as Olfactory conditioning with connections in the field of Proboscis extension reflex. Martin Giurfa usually deals with Cognition and limits it to topics linked to Cognitive science and Concept learning.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (63.82%)
  • Communication (39.14%)
  • Stimulus (32.89%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (63.82%)
  • Cognition (30.26%)
  • Stimulus (32.89%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Cognition, Stimulus, Numerosity adaptation effect and Honey Bees. His Neuroscience study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Conditioning. In general Cognition study, his work on Animal cognition often relates to the realm of Context, Graduate degree and Social movement, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

His Stimulus research includes themes of Discrimination learning and Classical conditioning. Martin Giurfa works mostly in the field of Numerosity adaptation effect, limiting it down to topics relating to Statistics and, in certain cases, Absolute number, as a part of the same area of interest. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Pheromone and Sex pheromone.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Honeybees use absolute rather than relative numerosity in number discrimination. (23 citations)
  • Honeybees use absolute rather than relative numerosity in number discrimination. (23 citations)
  • An Insect's Sense of Number. (13 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cognition

Martin Giurfa focuses on Olfactory Learning, Numerosity adaptation effect, Neuroscience, Odor and Pheromone. His Olfactory Learning research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Zoology and Foraging, Trail pheromone. Martin Giurfa has researched Numerosity adaptation effect in several fields, including Absolute number, Statistics and Stimulus.

Neuroscience is closely attributed to Conditioning in his research. His Pheromone research incorporates elements of Camponotus aethiops, Type I and type II errors and Sex pheromone. The concepts of his Sex pheromone study are interwoven with issues in Linepithema, Animal communication, Neuroethology, Argentine ant and Associative learning.
