Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine

His main research concerns Sleep in non-human animals, Slow-wave sleep, Wakefulness, Non-rapid eye movement sleep and Unihemispheric slow-wave sleep. His study looks at the relationship between Sleep in non-human animals and fields such as Audiology, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Slow-wave sleep is a subfield of Neuroscience that Niels Christian Rattenborg tackles.

His study in Wakefulness is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Zoology, Ecology and Sleep loss. His studies deal with areas such as Internal medicine and Eeg activity as well as Non-rapid eye movement sleep. His Unihemispheric slow-wave sleep research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Vigilance and Predation.

His most cited work include:

  • Behavioral, neurophysiological and evolutionary perspectives on unihemispheric sleep (326 citations)
  • Sleeping under the risk of predation (194 citations)
  • Migratory Sleeplessness in the White-Crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia Leucophrys Gambelii) (172 citations)

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

Niels Christian Rattenborg spends much of his time researching Sleep in non-human animals, Neuroscience, Non-rapid eye movement sleep, Wakefulness and Slow-wave sleep. His study of Sleep deprivation is a part of Sleep in non-human animals. In general Neuroscience, his work in Neocortex, Premovement neuronal activity, Neuroscience of sleep and Hippocampus is often linked to Nidopallium linking many areas of study.

The various areas that Niels Christian Rattenborg examines in his Non-rapid eye movement sleep study include Endocrinology, Thalamus, Internal medicine, Sloth and Full moon. His Wakefulness research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Brain activity and meditation, photoperiodism, Audiology and Circadian rhythm. His work on Unihemispheric slow-wave sleep and K-complex as part of general Slow-wave sleep research is often related to Convergent evolution, thus linking different fields of science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Sleep in non-human animals (68.75%)
  • Neuroscience (37.50%)
  • Non-rapid eye movement sleep (25.00%)

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

  • Sleep in non-human animals (68.75%)
  • Non-rapid eye movement sleep (25.00%)
  • Neuroscience (37.50%)

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

Niels Christian Rattenborg focuses on Sleep in non-human animals, Non-rapid eye movement sleep, Neuroscience, Wakefulness and Electroencephalography. His work carried out in the field of Sleep in non-human animals brings together such families of science as Zoology, Cognitive psychology, Eye movement, Nocturnal and Songbird. Niels Christian Rattenborg studied Non-rapid eye movement sleep and Full moon that intersect with photoperiodism.

His work on Premovement neuronal activity is typically connected to Melanin-concentrating hormone and Goldilocks principle as part of general Neuroscience study, connecting several disciplines of science. His research integrates issues of Sleep deprivation, Brain activity and meditation, Electrophysiology and Audiology in his study of Wakefulness. His Electroencephalography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Concordance and Training set, Artificial intelligence.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • What Is REM Sleep (20 citations)
  • Sleeping Unsafely Tucked in to Conserve Energy in a Nocturnal Migratory Songbird. (18 citations)
  • Intra-"cortical" activity during avian non-REM and REM sleep: variant and invariant traits between birds and mammals. (16 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine

His primary scientific interests are in Sleep in non-human animals, Non-rapid eye movement sleep, Neuroscience, Electroencephalography and Eye movement. Niels Christian Rattenborg has included themes like Zoology, Zugunruhe, Vigilance, Predation and Songbird in his Sleep in non-human animals study. His studies deal with areas such as Concordance, Training set and Thalamus as well as Non-rapid eye movement sleep.

A large part of his Neuroscience studies is devoted to Wakefulness. The various areas that Niels Christian Rattenborg examines in his Wakefulness study include Neocortex, Memory consolidation and Premovement neuronal activity. His Eye movement study incorporates themes from Electrophysiology and Sensory system.
