Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Epilepsy
  • Disease

Peter Camfield mainly focuses on Epilepsy, Pediatrics, El Niño, Psychiatry and Cohort. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Developmental psychology, Central nervous system disease and Electroencephalography. His research in Pediatrics intersects with topics in Cohort study, Seizure types, Quality of life, Age of onset and Neurological disorder.

His studies in El Niño integrate themes in fields like Young adult, Multivariate analysis, Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and Survival analysis. In his work, Visual analogue scale and Quality of life is strongly intertwined with Psychometrics, which is a subfield of Psychiatry. His work in Cohort covers topics such as Mortality rate which are related to areas like Sudden infant death syndrome, Neurodisability, Unexpected death and Pneumonia.

His most cited work include:

  • A Multicenter Study of the Efficacy of the Ketogenic Diet (346 citations)
  • Practice parameter: Evaluating a first nonfebrile seizure in children Report of the Quality Standards Subcommittee of the American Academy of Neurology, the Child Neurology Society, and the American Epilepsy Society (278 citations)
  • Incidence of Epilepsy in Childhood and Adolescence: A Population‐Based Study in Nova Scotia from 1977 to 1985 (243 citations)

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

Peter Camfield mainly investigates Pediatrics, Epilepsy, Psychiatry, Anesthesia and El Niño. His work carried out in the field of Pediatrics brings together such families of science as Incidence, Surgery, Cohort study, Age of onset and Cohort. He focuses mostly in the field of Epilepsy, narrowing it down to topics relating to Electroencephalography and, in certain cases, Audiology.

Intellectual disability, Psychosocial, Childhood epilepsy and Dravet syndrome are the core of his Psychiatry study. In his study, Carbamazepine is inextricably linked to Anticonvulsant, which falls within the broad field of Anesthesia. The El Niño study combines topics in areas such as Neurology and Central nervous system disease, Neurological disorder.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pediatrics (51.49%)
  • Epilepsy (49.25%)
  • Psychiatry (28.73%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2020)?

  • Epilepsy (49.25%)
  • Pediatrics (51.49%)
  • Psychiatry (28.73%)

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

His primary areas of study are Epilepsy, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Intellectual disability and Epilepsy syndromes. Peter Camfield has researched Epilepsy in several fields, including Young adult and Epidemiology. His Pediatrics research includes elements of Incidence, Cohort study, Status epilepticus, Etiology and Cohort.

The Psychiatry study which covers Disease that intersects with Transfer of care, Confounding, Stroke and Hippocampal sclerosis. His Intellectual disability study incorporates themes from Long term outcomes, Cortical malformations and Cognitive disabilities. His work carried out in the field of Epilepsy syndromes brings together such families of science as Genetic predisposition, Distress, Partial complex seizures, Epilepsy surgery and Convulsion.

Between 2011 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Incidence, prevalence and aetiology of seizures and epilepsy in children (139 citations)
  • Mortality Risks in New-Onset Childhood Epilepsy (101 citations)
  • Epidemiology of juvenile myoclonic epilepsy. (72 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Epilepsy
  • Disease

His scientific interests lie mostly in Epilepsy, Psychiatry, Pediatrics, Epilepsy syndromes and Young adult. His work in the fields of Seizure types overlaps with other areas such as Societal attitudes. The study incorporates disciplines such as Incidence, Febrile seizure, Pneumonia, Epilepsy surgery and Cohort in addition to Pediatrics.

His study focuses on the intersection of Cohort and fields such as Cohort study with connections in the field of Rolandic epilepsy, Surgery and Prospective cohort study. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Epilepsy syndromes, concentrating on Etiology and intersecting with Epilepsy in children, Convulsion, Intensive care medicine and Distress. His Young adult study combines topics in areas such as Health care provider and Nursing.
