Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Mutation

His main research concerns Genetics, Neuroscience, FOXP2, FOXP2 Gene and Genome-wide association study. As part of the same scientific family, Simon E. Fisher usually focuses on Genetics, concentrating on Specific language impairment and intersecting with Autism. His work in the fields of Human brain, Inferior frontal gyrus, Striatum and Basal ganglia overlaps with other areas such as Voxel-based morphometry.

Simon E. Fisher works mostly in the field of FOXP2, limiting it down to concerns involving Language disorder and, occasionally, Speech and language impairment. His Genome-wide association study research integrates issues from Hippocampal formation, Schizophrenia, Disease and Neuroimaging. His work deals with themes such as Exome sequencing, Missense mutation, Proband, Locus heterogeneity and Developmental disorder, which intersect with CNTNAP2.

His most cited work include:

  • A forkhead-domain gene is mutated in a severe speech and language disorder (1465 citations)
  • Molecular evolution of FOXP2, a gene involved in speech and language (1130 citations)
  • Exome sequencing in sporadic autism spectrum disorders identifies severe de novo mutations (952 citations)

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

Simon E. Fisher mainly focuses on Genetics, Neuroscience, FOXP2, Gene and Genome-wide association study. His Genetics study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Specific language impairment. His research investigates the connection between Neuroscience and topics such as Genetic architecture that intersect with problems in Genetic variation and Developmental psychology.

His FOXP2 research incorporates themes from CNTNAP2, Language disorder and Vocal learning. His Genome-wide association study research focuses on subjects like Dyslexia, which are linked to Candidate gene. His Cognition study combines topics in areas such as Autism and Neuroimaging.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (43.74%)
  • Neuroscience (34.30%)
  • FOXP2 (24.50%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (34.30%)
  • Cognition (17.60%)
  • Human brain (11.80%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Cognition, Human brain, Genetic architecture and Brain asymmetry. His study in Neuroscience is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both FOXP2 and Autism. His Human brain research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Evolutionary biology, Gene and Neuroimaging.

Gene is a subfield of Genetics that Simon E. Fisher tackles. In the subject of general Genetics, his work in FOXP1, Exome sequencing and Transcription factor is often linked to Morpholino, thereby combining diverse domains of study. In his work, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is strongly intertwined with Autism spectrum disorder, which is a subfield of Brain asymmetry.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The genetic architecture of the human cerebral cortex. (116 citations)
  • The genetic architecture of the human cerebral cortex. (116 citations)
  • ENIGMA and global neuroscience: A decade of large-scale studies of the brain in health and disease across more than 40 countries (97 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Mutation

Simon E. Fisher mostly deals with Neuroscience, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Genome-wide association study, Neuroimaging and Brain asymmetry. His Neuroscience research includes elements of Autism and Genetic architecture. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Autism, narrowing it down to issues related to the Schizophrenia, and often Genetics.

His Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder course of study focuses on Dyslexia and Clinical psychology, Planum temporale, SNP, Polymorphism and Heritability. The Neuroimaging study combines topics in areas such as Demography, Cortical surface and Disease. In his research on the topic of Brain asymmetry, Audiology is strongly related with Autism spectrum disorder.
