Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Surgery

Michael S. Okun spends much of his time researching Deep brain stimulation, Neuroscience, Parkinson's disease, Physical therapy and Disease. Michael S. Okun interconnects Anesthesia, Movement disorders, Stimulation and Surgery in the investigation of issues within Deep brain stimulation. His Parkinson's disease study combines topics in areas such as Apathy, Depression, Treatment outcome and Physical medicine and rehabilitation.

His studies deal with areas such as Psychological intervention, Clinical trial, Swallowing, Randomized controlled trial and Dysphagia as well as Physical therapy. Michael S. Okun works mostly in the field of Disease, limiting it down to concerns involving Psychiatry and, occasionally, Guideline. His work on Sensory cortex as part of general Sensory system study is frequently linked to Transmission, Communication channel and Temporal resolution, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome-wide association study reveals genetic risk underlying Parkinson's disease (1433 citations)
  • Stimulation of the Subthalamic Nucleus Changes the Firing Pattern of Pallidal Neurons (764 citations)
  • Fully integrated silicon probes for high-density recording of neural activity (733 citations)

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

His main research concerns Deep brain stimulation, Parkinson's disease, Neuroscience, Disease and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His Deep brain stimulation research incorporates elements of Dystonia, Essential tremor, Movement disorders and Stimulation. His Parkinson's disease research includes themes of Apathy, Psychiatry, Cognition and Physical therapy.

His Physical therapy study incorporates themes from Rating scale, Quality of life, Severity of illness, Pediatrics and Cohort. His Tourette syndrome research extends to Neuroscience, which is thematically connected. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Dyskinesia and Globus pallidus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Deep brain stimulation (44.59%)
  • Parkinson's disease (31.39%)
  • Neuroscience (24.97%)

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

  • Deep brain stimulation (44.59%)
  • Parkinson's disease (31.39%)
  • Neuroscience (24.97%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Deep brain stimulation, Parkinson's disease, Neuroscience, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Essential tremor. His study in Deep brain stimulation focuses on Subthalamic nucleus in particular. His Subthalamic nucleus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Adverse effect and Randomized controlled trial.

Disease and Internal medicine are all intrinsically tied to his study in Parkinson's disease. His Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Value and Reinforcement learning. The concepts of his Essential tremor study are interwoven with issues in Neuromodulation, Movement disorders, Cognition and Thalamus.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genomic Relationships, Novel Loci, and Pleiotropic Mechanisms across Eight Psychiatric Disorders (242 citations)
  • Diagnosis and Treatment of Parkinson Disease: A Review (148 citations)
  • The Coronavirus Disease 2019 Crisis as Catalyst for Telemedicine for Chronic Neurological Disorders. (81 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Surgery

Deep brain stimulation, Tourette syndrome, Essential tremor, Neuroscience and Dystonia are his primary areas of study. Michael S. Okun is investigating Deep brain stimulation as part of his inquiry into Parkinson's disease and Disease. His Tourette syndrome study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Intervention, Tics and Genome-wide association study.

His Essential tremor research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Staged surgery, Ventral intermediate nucleus, Contralateral limb, Neuromodulation and Optogenetics. The Neuroscience study combines topics in areas such as Value and Reinforcement learning. His Dystonia research incorporates themes from Concomitant, Head tremor and Retrospective cohort study.
