Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Cognition, Prefrontal cortex, Cognitive psychology and Electroencephalography. All of his Neuroscience and Working memory, Electrophysiology, Cerebral cortex, Sensory system and Posterior parietal cortex investigations are sub-components of the entire Neuroscience study. His Cognition research includes themes of Nerve net, Stimulus, Autism, Brain damage and Brain mapping.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Prefrontal cortex, Aversive Stimulus is strongly linked to Biological neural network. Robert T. Knight has researched Cognitive psychology in several fields, including Frontal lobe and Attentional control. He works mostly in the field of Electroencephalography, limiting it down to topics relating to Speech perception and, in certain cases, Psychoacoustics and Categorical variable.

His most cited work include:

  • High Gamma Power Is Phase-Locked to Theta Oscillations in Human Neocortex (1818 citations)
  • Principles of frontal lobe function (1552 citations)
  • The functional role of cross-frequency coupling. (1164 citations)

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

Robert T. Knight mainly investigates Neuroscience, Electroencephalography, Prefrontal cortex, Stimulus and Cognition. His study in Electrophysiology, Electrocorticography, Brain mapping, Working memory and Cortex is carried out as part of his studies in Neuroscience. Developmental psychology is closely connected to Audiology in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Electrophysiology.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Neuroimaging, Speech recognition and Eye tracking. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cognitive psychology, Posterior parietal cortex and Frontal lobe in addition to Prefrontal cortex. He focuses mostly in the field of Stimulus, narrowing it down to matters related to Perception and, in some cases, Sensory system.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (76.38%)
  • Electroencephalography (36.42%)
  • Prefrontal cortex (26.18%)

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

  • Neuroscience (76.38%)
  • Electroencephalography (36.42%)
  • Electrophysiology (21.26%)

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

Robert T. Knight mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Electroencephalography, Electrophysiology, Electrocorticography and Working memory. His study in Temporal cortex, Human brain, Prefrontal cortex, Neurophysiology and Cognition falls within the category of Neuroscience. He interconnects Arousal and Eye movement in the investigation of issues within Electroencephalography.

His Electrophysiology study also includes

  • Intracranial eeg that connect with fields like Region of interest, Attentional modulation, Temporal Cortices and Frontal cortex,
  • Audiology which is related to area like Sensory system, Superior temporal gyrus, Superior temporal sulcus, Salience and Brain mapping. The various areas that Robert T. Knight examines in his Electrocorticography study include Visual perception and Rhythm. His studies deal with areas such as Cognitive psychology, Forgetting, Segmentation, Feature and Free recall as well as Working memory.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Sleep as a potential biomarker of tau and β-amyloid burden in the human brain (57 citations)
  • Parameterizing neural power spectra into periodic and aperiodic components. (56 citations)
  • Parameterizing neural power spectra into periodic and aperiodic components. (56 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Artificial intelligence

Neuroscience, Electroencephalography, Cognition, Electrophysiology and Temporal cortex are his primary areas of study. Dissociation, Neurophysiology, Epilepsy, Hippocampus and Theta power are among the areas of Neuroscience where Robert T. Knight concentrates his study. His Electroencephalography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Power, Frequency domain, Electrode and Pattern recognition.

His Cognition research includes elements of Neuroimaging and Significant difference. His research in Electrophysiology intersects with topics in Arousal, Eye movement, Non-rapid eye movement sleep, Wakefulness and Sleep Stages. His Temporal cortex study which covers Posterior parietal cortex that intersects with Human brain.
