Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Mirror neuron, Developmental psychology, Imitation and Premotor cortex. His Neuroscience study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Serotonergic. Pier Francesco Ferrari has included themes like Electrophysiology, Perception, Communication, Motor system and Brain mapping in his Mirror neuron study.

The various areas that Pier Francesco Ferrari examines in his Developmental psychology study include Elevated plus maze, Anxiety, Empathy and Cognition. His work carried out in the field of Imitation brings together such families of science as Facilitation, Facial expression and Nonverbal communication. Pier Francesco Ferrari interconnects Parietal lobe and Central nervous system in the investigation of issues within Inferior parietal lobule.

His most cited work include:

  • Parietal lobe: from action organization to intention understanding. (1527 citations)
  • Mirror neurons responding to the observation of ingestive and communicative mouth actions in the monkey ventral premotor cortex. (561 citations)
  • Empathy: Gender effects in brain and behavior (345 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Mirror neuron, Neuroscience, Developmental psychology, Imitation and Cognition. His research investigates the connection between Mirror neuron and topics such as Communication that intersect with issues in Visual perception. His work on Electroencephalography, Neurophysiology and Motor cortex as part of general Neuroscience research is frequently linked to Premotor cortex, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His work on Aggression as part of general Developmental psychology study is frequently connected to Gesture, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His research integrates issues of Child development and Rhesus macaque in his study of Imitation. His studies deal with areas such as Empathy, Social behavior and Motor skill as well as Cognition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mirror neuron (48.02%)
  • Neuroscience (43.50%)
  • Developmental psychology (40.11%)

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

  • Developmental psychology (40.11%)
  • Facial expression (19.21%)
  • Electroencephalography (14.12%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Developmental psychology, Facial expression, Electroencephalography, Mirror neuron and Neuroscience. His study brings together the fields of Imitation and Developmental psychology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Facial paralysis, Expression and Audiology.

He combines subjects such as Oxytocin, Rhythm and Prosocial behavior with his study of Electroencephalography. His research in Mirror neuron intersects with topics in Neurophysiology, Auditory feedback and Imitative learning. Pier Francesco Ferrari is interested in Perception, which is a branch of Neuroscience.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Eliciting imitation in early infancy. (19 citations)
  • Congenital facial palsy and emotion processing: The case of Moebius syndrome. (11 citations)
  • Congenital facial palsy and emotion processing: The case of Moebius syndrome. (11 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine

Pier Francesco Ferrari focuses on Expression, Embodied cognition, Facial expression, Mirror neuron and Developmental psychology. His Expression research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Paralysis, Emotional stimuli, Cranial nerves and Emotional behavior. In his papers, Pier Francesco Ferrari integrates diverse fields, such as Embodied cognition and Audiology.

Pier Francesco Ferrari is investigating Mirror neuron as part of his Cognitive psychology and Neuroscience and Mirror neuron study. Many of his studies on Developmental psychology involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Imitation.
