Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Perception

Robert D. Rafal spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Visual perception and Cued speech. His research on Neuroscience often connects related topics like Visual extinction. His Cognitive psychology research includes themes of Neurology, Perception and Stroop effect.

Robert D. Rafal has included themes like Lesion, N2pc and Audiology in his Cued speech study. His work deals with themes such as Bálint's syndrome, Directed attention fatigue, Shifting attention, Disengagement theory and Extinction, which intersect with Parietal lobe. His work carried out in the field of Saccade brings together such families of science as Visual field, Communication and Inhibition of return.

His most cited work include:

  • Effects of parietal injury on covert orienting of attention (1870 citations)
  • Inhibition of return : Neural basis and function (996 citations)
  • Shifting visual attention between objects and locations: evidence from normal and parietal lesion subjects. (942 citations)

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

Robert D. Rafal mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Cognitive psychology, Eye movement, Saccade and Visual perception. His works in Stimulus, Visual field, Inhibition of return, Parietal lobe and Superior colliculus are all subjects of inquiry into Neuroscience. His research in Inhibition of return tackles topics such as Cued speech which are related to areas like Facilitation and Lesion.

His Cognitive psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Perception, Audiology, Cognition, Hemispatial neglect and Covert. His studies in Eye movement integrate themes in fields like Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Communication. His research integrates issues of Visual search, Saccadic masking and Prefrontal cortex in his study of Saccade.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (51.49%)
  • Cognitive psychology (35.07%)
  • Eye movement (22.39%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2019)?

  • Cognitive psychology (35.07%)
  • Neuroscience (51.49%)
  • Eye movement (22.39%)

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

Robert D. Rafal mainly investigates Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience, Eye movement, Prism adaptation and Proprioception. His Cognitive psychology research includes elements of Visual perception, Perception, Cognitive neuroscience of visual object recognition and Cognition. His Visual perception research incorporates elements of Motor skill, Midbrain, Superior colliculus, Selection and Superior Colliculi.

His studies examine the connections between Cognition and genetics, as well as such issues in Concreteness, with regards to Frontal lobe. His Neuroscience research includes elements of Context and Lesion. His Visual field research extends to the thematically linked field of Eye movement.

Between 2010 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Deficits in reach target selection during inactivation of the midbrain superior colliculus (66 citations)
  • Core, social and moral disgust are bounded: A review on behavioral and neural bases of repugnance in clinical disorders (42 citations)
  • Concrete behaviour and reappraisal deficits after a left frontal stroke: A case study (26 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Perception

His main research concerns Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience, Motor cortex, Eye movement and Lesion. Robert D. Rafal combines subjects such as Developmental psychology, Rehabilitation and Neural correlates of consciousness with his study of Cognitive psychology. His Neuroscience research integrates issues from Disease and Selection.

His research in Motor cortex intersects with topics in Motor system, Transcranial magnetic stimulation and Audiology. His studies in Eye movement integrate themes in fields like Superior colliculus, Motor skill and Midbrain. Robert D. Rafal interconnects Lateralization of brain function, Cortex, Posterior parietal cortex and Supplementary eye field in the investigation of issues within Lesion.
