Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Gene

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Fatal familial insomnia, Endocrinology, Genetics and Pathology. His study on Internal medicine is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Cardiology. The concepts of his Cardiology study are interwoven with issues in Anesthesia, Neurology and Blood pressure.

His Fatal familial insomnia research incorporates elements of Sleep disorder, Dysautonomia and Gene. His studies deal with areas such as PINK1 and Parkinsonism as well as Genetics. Pietro Cortelli works mostly in the field of Pathology, limiting it down to concerns involving Thalamus and, occasionally, Electroencephalography and Sleep spindle.

His most cited work include:

  • Hereditary Early-Onset Parkinson's Disease Caused by Mutations in PINK1 (2554 citations)
  • Mutations in the FUS/TLS gene on chromosome 16 cause familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. (1871 citations)
  • Consensus statement on the definition of orthostatic hypotension, neurally mediated syncope and the postural tachycardia syndrome (904 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Anesthesia, Migraine, Neurology and Endocrinology. His research investigates the connection between Internal medicine and topics such as Cardiology that intersect with problems in Orthostatic vital signs. His research integrates issues of Blood pressure and Polysomnography in his study of Anesthesia.

His Neurology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Neurosurgery, Disease and Pediatrics. Endocrinology is often connected to Fatal familial insomnia in his work. His Fatal familial insomnia study is focused on Pathology in general.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (31.01%)
  • Anesthesia (16.06%)
  • Migraine (15.36%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Neurology (14.25%)
  • Disease (9.08%)
  • Internal medicine (31.01%)

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

Pietro Cortelli mainly focuses on Neurology, Disease, Internal medicine, Pediatrics and Parkinson's disease. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Neurology, concentrating on Neurosurgery and intersecting with Young adult. In his work, Neurodegeneration and Heart rate is strongly intertwined with Neuroscience, which is a subfield of Disease.

He has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Gastroenterology and Cardiology. His work deals with themes such as Delirium, Neuropsychology, Fatal familial insomnia, Dysautonomia and Atrophy, which intersect with Pediatrics. Pietro Cortelli works mostly in the field of Fatal familial insomnia, limiting it down to topics relating to Orbitofrontal cortex and, in certain cases, Cerebellum and Pathology, as a part of the same area of interest.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Risk and predictors of dementia and parkinsonism in idiopathic REM sleep behaviour disorder: a multicentre study (199 citations)
  • Consensus statement on the definition of neurogenic supine hypertension in cardiovascular autonomic failure by the American Autonomic Society (AAS) and the European Federation of Autonomic Societies (EFAS) : Endorsed by the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) and the European Society of Hypertension (ESH). (65 citations)
  • LRP10 genetic variants in familial Parkinson's disease and dementia with Lewy bodies: a genome-wide linkage and sequencing study (54 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Gene

Pietro Cortelli mostly deals with Neurology, Disease, Internal medicine, Parkinson's disease and Parkinsonism. His study in Neurology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Neurosurgery, Magnetic resonance imaging, Encephalopathy and Electroencephalography. Pietro Cortelli interconnects Pure autonomic failure, Orthostatic vital signs, Pediatrics and Atrophy in the investigation of issues within Disease.

His work on Internal medicine is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Gastroenterology. His Parkinson's disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Hypothalamus, Suprachiasmatic nucleus, Dementia with Lewy bodies, Dementia and Hazard ratio. His work in Parkinsonism addresses subjects such as REM sleep behavior disorder, which are connected to disciplines such as Synucleinopathies.
