Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cardiology
  • Surgery

His primary scientific interests are in Cerebral blood flow, Internal medicine, Anesthesia, Blood flow and Cardiology. His Cerebral blood flow study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Nuclear medicine, Hemodynamics, Blood pressure and Cerebral autoregulation. Within one scientific family, Niels A. Lassen focuses on topics pertaining to Endocrinology under Internal medicine, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Extravasation and Biochemistry.

He has researched Anesthesia in several fields, including Stroke, Autoregulation and Respiratory quotient. The Blood flow study combines topics in areas such as Collateral circulation, Anatomy, Pathology, Left Cerebral Hemisphere and Cerebral angiography. His research integrates issues of Intermittent claudication, Surgery, Subarachnoid hemorrhage, Brain activity and meditation and Wisconsin Card Sorting Test in his study of Cardiology.

His most cited work include:

  • Cerebral Blood Flow and Oxygen Consumption in Man (1501 citations)
  • Supplementary motor area and other cortical areas in organization of voluntary movements in man (1280 citations)
  • Multi-infarct dementia. A cause of mental deterioration in the elderly. (844 citations)

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

Niels A. Lassen focuses on Cerebral blood flow, Internal medicine, Cardiology, Blood flow and Anesthesia. He is interested in Cerebrovascular Circulation, which is a field of Cerebral blood flow. His Internal medicine research integrates issues from Endocrinology and Microangiopathy.

His work deals with themes such as Intermittent claudication and Surgery, which intersect with Cardiology. His Anesthesia study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Epilepsy, Hypercapnia and Cerebral angiography. His Ischemia study incorporates themes from Stroke and Thrombolysis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cerebral blood flow (47.59%)
  • Internal medicine (42.41%)
  • Cardiology (31.38%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1989-2009)?

  • Cerebral blood flow (47.59%)
  • Internal medicine (42.41%)
  • Cardiology (31.38%)

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

Niels A. Lassen mainly focuses on Cerebral blood flow, Internal medicine, Cardiology, Anesthesia and Nuclear medicine. His Cerebral blood flow research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Blood flow, Single-photon emission computed tomography, Stroke, Hemodynamics and Neuroscience. His work on Endocrinology expands to the thematically related Internal medicine.

His research in Cardiology intersects with topics in Surgery and Acute stroke. Niels A. Lassen has included themes like Nitric oxide synthase, Blood pressure and Hypercapnia in his Anesthesia study. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Nuclear medicine, focusing on Nuclear magnetic resonance and, on occasion, Human brain and Flumazenil.

Between 1989 and 2009, his most popular works were:

  • Nitric oxide synthase inhibition and cerebrovascular regulation. (608 citations)
  • Timing and topography of cerebral blood flow, aura, and headache during migraine attacks. (456 citations)
  • Ischemic Stroke and Incomplete Infarction (205 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cardiology
  • Surgery

His primary scientific interests are in Cerebral blood flow, Internal medicine, Hemodynamics, Anesthesia and Cardiology. His Cerebral blood flow research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Hypoxia, Blood flow, Wakefulness, Ischemia and Neuroscience. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Brain activity and meditation, Frontal lobe, Temporal lobe and Wisconsin Card Sorting Test.

His research on Hemodynamics also deals with topics like

  • Central nervous system together with Glucose uptake, Oxygene and Metabolism,
  • Biochemistry together with Endothelium, Cerebral autoregulation and Autoregulation. His Anesthesia study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cerebral palsy and Pathogenesis. Niels A. Lassen combines subjects such as Exercise physiology, Hypoxic ventilatory response, Ischemic stroke, Hypercapnia and Physical exercise with his study of Cardiology.
