Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Neuroscience

His scientific interests lie mostly in Parkinson's disease, Subthalamic nucleus, Deep brain stimulation, Levodopa and Neuroscience. His Parkinson's disease study combines topics in areas such as Apathy, Dopaminergic, Surgery and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His study in Subthalamic nucleus is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Stimulation, Central nervous system disease and Biological neural network.

His studies in Stimulation integrate themes in fields like Thalamotomy, Movement disorders and Degenerative disease. The Deep brain stimulation study combines topics in areas such as Neurology, Adverse effect, Dystonia, Physical therapy and Neuroplasticity. His Levodopa research integrates issues from Euphoriant and Globus pallidus.

His most cited work include:

  • Five-year follow-up of bilateral stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus in advanced Parkinson's disease. (1723 citations)
  • Electrical Stimulation of the Subthalamic Nucleus in Advanced Parkinson's Disease (1547 citations)
  • Long-term suppression of tremor by chronic stimulation of the ventral intermediate thalamic nucleus (1423 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Parkinson's disease, Neuroscience, Deep brain stimulation, Subthalamic nucleus and Stimulation. His Parkinson's disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Anesthesia, Dopaminergic, Surgery and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His Anesthesia research incorporates themes from Dyskinesia and Severity of illness.

Pierre Pollak interconnects Neurology, Globus pallidus, Dystonia, Movement disorders and Neurological disorder in the investigation of issues within Deep brain stimulation. His studies deal with areas such as Dysarthria, Central nervous system disease, Substantia nigra, Premovement neuronal activity and Parkinsonism as well as Subthalamic nucleus. His Stimulation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Thalamotomy, Essential tremor, Adverse effect and Audiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Parkinson's disease (60.89%)
  • Neuroscience (49.08%)
  • Deep brain stimulation (50.92%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2019)?

  • Deep brain stimulation (50.92%)
  • Parkinson's disease (60.89%)
  • Neuroscience (49.08%)

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

Pierre Pollak spends much of his time researching Deep brain stimulation, Parkinson's disease, Neuroscience, Levodopa and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. Pierre Pollak studies Deep brain stimulation, namely Subthalamic nucleus. Pierre Pollak combines subjects such as Dopaminergic, Physical therapy, Apathy and Anxiety with his study of Parkinson's disease.

His Neuroscience research incorporates themes from Vertical supranuclear gaze palsy, Subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation and Audiology. Pierre Pollak interconnects Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Pedunculopontine nucleus in the investigation of issues within Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His work deals with themes such as Essential tremor, Anesthesia, Neural activity, Neuroplasticity and Movement disorders, which intersect with Stimulation.

Between 2012 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Parkinsonian apathy responds to dopaminergic stimulation of D2/D3 receptors with piribedil. (164 citations)
  • Excessive burden of lysosomal storage disorder gene variants in Parkinson's disease (163 citations)
  • Selecting deep brain stimulation or infusion therapies in advanced Parkinson’s disease: an evidence-based review (92 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Disease

His primary scientific interests are in Parkinson's disease, Deep brain stimulation, Levodopa, Disease and Physical therapy. His work carried out in the field of Parkinson's disease brings together such families of science as Dopaminergic, Dopamine, Apathy, Depression and Cohort. His Deep brain stimulation research includes themes of Surgery, Adverse effect and Stimulation, Neuroscience.

His research in Levodopa intersects with topics in Pedunculopontine Tegmental Nucleus and Electroencephalography. His Physical therapy research includes elements of Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Rating scale, Quality of life, Anxiety and Stroke. His Subthalamic nucleus study incorporates themes from Dyskinesia and Subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation.
