The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Anatomy, Neuroscience, Audiology, Commissure and Visual perception. His Muscle transposition and Anterior commissure study, which is part of a larger body of work in Anatomy, is frequently linked to Optic nerve regeneration, Specialization and Personality changes, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work in the fields of Neuroscience, such as Split-brain, Chemoaffinity hypothesis and Nerve fiber, overlaps with other areas such as Synaptic specificity and Biochemical Phenomena.
Roger W. Sperry studies Audiology, focusing on Lateralization of brain function in particular. His Commissure study incorporates themes from Lateral dominance, Corpus callosum, Disconnection and Auditory perception. His work is dedicated to discovering how Visual perception, Motor skill are connected with Cognition, Cognitive psychology, MEDLINE, Conscious awareness and Epilepsy surgery and other disciplines.
Roger W. Sperry focuses on Neuroscience, Anatomy, Consciousness, Cognitive psychology and Audiology. Corpus callosum, Split-brain and Sensory system are the primary areas of interest in his Neuroscience study. Roger W. Sperry combines subjects such as Visual perception, Forebrain, Commissure and CATS with his study of Corpus callosum.
Roger W. Sperry carries out multidisciplinary research, doing studies in Anatomy and Optic nerve regeneration. His Consciousness research incorporates themes from Neural correlates of consciousness, Materialism and Cognitive science. His work on Lateralization of brain function and Right visual field as part of his general Audiology study is frequently connected to Commissurotomy, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Epistemology, Consciousness, Determinism, Materialism and Cognitive science. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cognitive psychology, Perception, Cognitive revolution, Behaviorism and Doctrine in addition to Consciousness. His studies deal with areas such as Cognitive neuropsychology and Humanism as well as Cognitive psychology.
Many of his research projects under Perception are closely connected to Corollary with Corollary, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His research investigates the connection between Materialism and topics such as Value that intersect with issues in Action. He has included themes like Haptic memory, Neurology and MEDLINE in his Cognitive science study.
His primary scientific interests are in Cognitive science, Determinism, Epistemology, Consciousness and Mentalism. His work carried out in the field of Cognitive science brings together such families of science as Visual perception, Perception, Haptic memory, Corpus callosum and Semantic memory. His Determinism research includes elements of Causation, Cognitive neuropsychology, Neoclassical economics and Cognitive revolution.
His Epistemology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Social psychology and Humanism. His research integrates issues of Chemoaffinity hypothesis, Cognitive psychology, Forebrain and Doctrine in his study of Consciousness.
