Fellow of the Royal Society of South Africa
His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Anatomy, Brain size, African elephant and Cerebral cortex. His Neuroscience research integrates issues from Evolutionary biology and Phylogenetic tree. His Anatomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Retinal ganglion cell, Retina, Retinal ganglion, Cortex and Visual field.
His Brain size research incorporates elements of Dentate gyrus, Hippocampal formation and Neuropeptide. His studies deal with areas such as Motor system, Mammal and Imitation as well as African elephant. His Cerebral cortex research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cerebellum, Pyramidal cell, Prefrontal cortex and Macaque.
His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Anatomy, Cerebral cortex, Zoology and Brain size. His research brings together the fields of Serotonergic and Neuroscience. He combines subjects such as Pyramidal cell, Retina, Neurogenesis, Visual field and African elephant with his study of Anatomy.
His Cerebral cortex research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cortex and Neuron. Paul R. Manger interconnects Cerebellum, Brain Mass, Evolutionary biology and Allometry in the investigation of issues within Brain size. His Catecholaminergic study incorporates themes from Choline acetyltransferase, Rodent and Tyrosine hydroxylase.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Cerebral cortex, Evolutionary biology, Anatomy and Brain size. His work on Neuroscience is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Manis tricuspis. His Cerebral cortex research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Soma, Immunocytochemistry and Enlarged cerebellum.
The Evolutionary biology study combines topics in areas such as Gyrification, Neuroanatomy, Banded mongoose, Domestication and Carnivore. His study on Lateral semicircular canal is often connected to Plains zebra as part of broader study in Anatomy. His Encephalization quotient study in the realm of Brain size connects with subjects such as Connectome, Information transmission and Gray.
Paul R. Manger mainly focuses on Cerebral cortex, Neuroscience, Brain size, Evolutionary biology and White matter. His Cerebral cortex study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Soma, Biological neural network, Evolution of mammals and Cell biology. His study in Sleep Stages, Unihemispheric slow-wave sleep, Sleep in non-human animals, Non-rapid eye movement sleep and Consciousness falls within the category of Neuroscience.
His Brain size study incorporates themes from Biological system and Cortical volume. The study incorporates disciplines such as Gyrification, Neuroanatomy, Stereology, Encephalization and Afrotheria in addition to Evolutionary biology. In Predation, he works on issues like Carnivora, which are connected to Cerebrospinal fluid, Mammal, Anatomy, Primate and Meninges.
