What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry

His primary areas of investigation include Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Neuroscience, Stimulation, Brain stimulation and Transcranial magnetic stimulation. His Transcranial direct-current stimulation study incorporates themes from Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Prefrontal cortex, Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and Motor cortex, Primary motor cortex. His is doing research in Neuroplasticity, Cognition, Human brain, Visual cortex and Brain mapping, both of which are found in Neuroscience.

The Stimulation study combines topics in areas such as Facilitation, Working memory, Central nervous system and Electroencephalography. His study in Brain stimulation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Rehabilitation, Non invasive, Brain function, Placebo and Resting state fMRI. His study in the field of Silent period is also linked to topics like Pulse, Electromagnetic field and Waveform.

His most cited work include:

  • Excitability changes induced in the human motor cortex by weak transcranial direct current stimulation. (3532 citations)
  • Transcranial direct current stimulation: State of the art 2008 (1994 citations)
  • Sustained excitability elevations induced by transcranial DC motor cortex stimulation in humans (1789 citations)

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

Michael A. Nitsche focuses on Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Neuroscience, Stimulation, Neuroplasticity and Brain stimulation. His work focuses on many connections between Transcranial direct-current stimulation and other disciplines, such as Cognition, that overlap with his field of interest in Cognitive psychology. His study in the fields of Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Human brain and Motor learning under the domain of Neuroscience overlaps with other disciplines such as Chemistry.

In Stimulation, Michael A. Nitsche works on issues like Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, which are connected to Craving. The concepts of his Neuroplasticity study are interwoven with issues in NMDA receptor, Schizophrenia, Dopamine and Synaptic plasticity. His Brain stimulation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Brain activity and meditation and Non invasive.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Transcranial direct-current stimulation (90.80%)
  • Neuroscience (82.57%)
  • Stimulation (50.38%)

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

  • Transcranial direct-current stimulation (90.80%)
  • Neuroscience (82.57%)
  • Stimulation (50.38%)

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

Michael A. Nitsche mainly investigates Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Neuroscience, Stimulation, Cognition and Audiology. His work deals with themes such as Motor cortex, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Primary motor cortex, Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and Neuroplasticity, which intersect with Transcranial direct-current stimulation. His Anxiety research extends to the thematically linked field of Neuroscience.

His research in Stimulation tackles topics such as Electroencephalography which are related to areas like Vigilance. Michael A. Nitsche has included themes like Association, Cortex and Motor learning in his Cognition study. His research investigates the connection with Brain stimulation and areas like Brain activity and meditation which intersect with concerns in Human brain mapping.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Improves Executive Dysfunctions in ADHD: Implications for Inhibitory Control, Interference Control, Working Memory, and Cognitive Flexibility. (43 citations)
  • Repeated stimulation of the dorsolateral-prefrontal cortex improves executive dysfunctions and craving in drug addiction: A randomized, double-blind, parallel-group study. (20 citations)
  • Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in ADHD: A Systematic Review of Efficacy, Safety, and Protocol-induced Electrical Field Modeling Results (15 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Psychiatry

His scientific interests lie mostly in Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Stimulation, Neuroscience, Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and Cognition. His research integrates issues of Neurocognitive, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Ventromedial prefrontal cortex in his study of Transcranial direct-current stimulation. He has researched Stimulation in several fields, including Neuroplasticity and Frontal cortex.

His Neuroplasticity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Motor cortex, Transcranial magnetic stimulation and Primary motor cortex. He performs multidisciplinary study on Neuroscience and Immune Stimulation in his works. In his study, Human brain, Brain activity and meditation, Resting state fMRI, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Medical education is inextricably linked to Brain stimulation, which falls within the broad field of Cognition.
