Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Neuroscience

Peter Svensson spends much of his time researching Anesthesia, Hypertonic saline, Noxious stimulus, Masseter muscle and Electromyography. His Anesthesia research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Hyperalgesia, Nociception and Stimulation. The Hypertonic saline study which covers Saline that intersects with Hyperesthesia.

His Masseter muscle research incorporates elements of Electrophysiology, Isometric exercise, Tonic and Craniofacial. His studies in Electromyography integrate themes in fields like Muscle contraction, Anatomy and Reflex. His work carried out in the field of Reflex brings together such families of science as Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Temporal muscle.

His most cited work include:

  • A classification of chronic pain for ICD-11 (819 citations)
  • A classification of chronic pain for ICD-11 (819 citations)
  • Bruxism defined and graded: an international consensus (517 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Anesthesia, Masseter muscle, Nociception, Electromyography and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His Anesthesia research focuses on subjects like Stimulation, which are linked to Stimulus. He combines subjects such as Glutamate receptor, Bite force quotient, Analysis of variance and Tonic with his study of Masseter muscle.

His Nociception research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Orofacial pain, Referred pain, Somatosensory system and Electrophysiology. Peter Svensson works mostly in the field of Electromyography, limiting it down to concerns involving Sleep Bruxism and, occasionally, Polysomnography. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Physical therapy, Neuroplasticity and Motor learning.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Anesthesia (86.14%)
  • Masseter muscle (53.86%)
  • Nociception (41.98%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2020)?

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (30.69%)
  • Anesthesia (86.14%)
  • Physical therapy (24.16%)

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

Peter Svensson mostly deals with Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Anesthesia, Physical therapy, Masseter muscle and Sleep Bruxism. He interconnects Nerve growth factor, Placebo, Sensory system and Nociception in the investigation of issues within Anesthesia. In his study, Oral mucosa is strongly linked to Somatosensory system, which falls under the umbrella field of Nociception.

Chronic pain and Orofacial pain are among the areas of Physical therapy where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. In his work, Motor learning and Motor cortex is strongly intertwined with Transcranial magnetic stimulation, which is a subfield of Masseter muscle. His study in Sleep Bruxism is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Electromyography, Tooth wear and Polysomnography.

Between 2015 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Chronic pain as a symptom or a disease: the IASP Classification of Chronic Pain for the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11). (318 citations)
  • The IASP classification of chronic pain for ICD-11: chronic primary pain. (158 citations)
  • The IASP classification of chronic pain for ICD-11: chronic neuropathic pain. (135 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Neuroscience

His primary areas of study are Physical therapy, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Sleep Bruxism, Electromyography and Masseter muscle. Peter Svensson specializes in Physical therapy, namely Chronic pain. His work deals with themes such as Referred pain, Physical examination, Neuroplasticity, Headaches and Masticatory force, which intersect with Physical medicine and rehabilitation.

As part of one scientific family, Peter Svensson deals mainly with the area of Masseter muscle, narrowing it down to issues related to the Motor skill, and often Motor cortex. The Threshold of pain study combines topics in areas such as Somatosensory system, Neurology and Nociception. He focuses mostly in the field of Nociception, narrowing it down to matters related to Oral mucosa and, in some cases, Anesthesia.
