Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine

Onur Güntürkün focuses on Neuroscience, Lateralization of brain function, Cognition, Laterality and Developmental psychology. Many of his studies on Neuroscience involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Anatomy. The various areas that he examines in his Lateralization of brain function study include Visual system, Perception and Communication.

In his study, Visual perception, Dominance, Passerine and Animal development is inextricably linked to Cognitive psychology, which falls within the broad field of Cognition. His studies deal with areas such as Evolutionary biology, Ocular dominance, Corpus callosum, Non-human and Right hemisphere as well as Laterality. In his work, Follicular phase and Testosterone is strongly intertwined with Menstrual cycle, which is a subfield of Developmental psychology.

His most cited work include:

  • Avian brains and a new understanding of vertebrate brain evolution (707 citations)
  • Sex hormones affect spatial abilities during the menstrual cycle. (326 citations)
  • Mirror-Induced Behavior in the Magpie (Pica pica): Evidence of Self-Recognition (313 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Lateralization of brain function, Cognitive psychology, Cognition and Laterality. Many of his studies on Neuroscience apply to Anatomy as well. His Anatomy study incorporates themes from Tectum and Nucleus.

Onur Güntürkün has researched Lateralization of brain function in several fields, including Monocular, Dichotic listening and Perception. His Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Visual perception and Communication. His Prefrontal cortex research includes elements of Working memory and Dopaminergic, Dopamine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (45.85%)
  • Lateralization of brain function (23.50%)
  • Cognitive psychology (19.82%)

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

  • Neuroscience (45.85%)
  • Cognitive psychology (19.82%)
  • Lateralization of brain function (23.50%)

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

Onur Güntürkün spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Cognitive psychology, Lateralization of brain function, Laterality and Cognition. His work on Genetic variation expands to the thematically related Neuroscience. His research integrates issues of Context, Extinction, Social relation and Psychological research in his study of Cognitive psychology.

His work in the fields of Lateralization of brain function, such as Brain asymmetry, overlaps with other areas such as Scale estimate. His research in Laterality intersects with topics in Schizophrenia, Dyslexia and Genotype. His Cognition study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Association, Cortical processing, Perception and Neuron.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Brain Lateralization: A Comparative Perspective. (36 citations)
  • A community-based transcriptomics classification and nomenclature of neocortical cell types (29 citations)
  • How foraging works: uncertainty magnifies food-seeking motivation. (27 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Laterality, Lateralization of brain function, Cognitive psychology and Audiology. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Diffusion MRI and Neuroscience. His work is dedicated to discovering how Laterality, Schizophrenia are connected with Depression, Chronic stress and Autism and other disciplines.

His work deals with themes such as Dyslexia and Action, which intersect with Lateralization of brain function. Onur Güntürkün combines subjects such as Social relation, Operant conditioning, Appetitive conditioning, Extinction and Free operant with his study of Cognitive psychology. His studies in Audiology integrate themes in fields like Alpha, Neurophysiology, Neural correlates of consciousness and Electroencephalography.
