Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition

Stephan P. Swinnen spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Cognitive psychology, Motor control and Motor learning. His study in Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Primary motor cortex, Motor cortex, Supplementary motor area and Cognition falls within the category of Neuroscience. In the field of Physical medicine and rehabilitation, his study on Proprioception overlaps with subjects such as Phase offset.

The Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Knowledge of results, Hand preference, Body language and Biological motion. His Motor control study incorporates themes from Tendon, Electromyography, Upper limb and Computational model. The concepts of his Motor learning study are interwoven with issues in Rehabilitation, Task, Motor skill and Artificial intelligence.

His most cited work include:

  • Effect of 6‐Month Whole Body Vibration Training on Hip Density, Muscle Strength, and Postural Control in Postmenopausal Women: A Randomized Controlled Pilot Study (696 citations)
  • Intermanual coordination: from behavioural principles to neural-network interactions. (588 citations)
  • The role of paraspinal muscle spindles in lumbosacral position sense in individuals with and without low back pain. (383 citations)

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

Stephan P. Swinnen mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Motor control, Motor learning and Cognitive psychology. His Neuroscience study focuses mostly on Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Primary motor cortex, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Motor cortex and Cognition. His Functional magnetic resonance imaging research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Resting state fMRI and Brain mapping.

His work deals with themes such as Physical therapy, Parkinson's disease and Anatomy, which intersect with Physical medicine and rehabilitation. Stephan P. Swinnen performs multidisciplinary study in the fields of Motor control and Body movement via his papers. His Motor learning study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Task and Motor skill.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (41.07%)
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (32.44%)
  • Motor control (15.61%)

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

  • Neuroscience (41.07%)
  • Motor learning (16.84%)
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (32.44%)

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

Stephan P. Swinnen mainly investigates Neuroscience, Motor learning, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Transcranial magnetic stimulation and Young adult. While the research belongs to areas of Neuroscience, he spends his time largely on the problem of Age related, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Task and Voxel. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Hippocampus, Memory consolidation, Neuroplasticity and Motor skill.

His Physical medicine and rehabilitation study combines topics in areas such as Premotor cortex, Parkinson's disease and Handwriting. Stephan P. Swinnen interconnects Motor cortex, Dorsum and Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in the investigation of issues within Transcranial magnetic stimulation. He has included themes like Facilitation, Lateralization of brain function, Audiology and Motor control in his Primary motor cortex study.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Neural correlates of action: Comparing meta-analyses of imagery, observation, and execution (162 citations)
  • Age-related declines in motor performance are associated with decreased segregation of large-scale resting state brain networks (59 citations)
  • Physical activity to improve cognition in older adults: can physical activity programs enriched with cognitive challenges enhance the effects? A systematic review and meta-analysis (50 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Young adult, Motor learning, Transcranial magnetic stimulation and Functional magnetic resonance imaging. His research in Neuroscience intersects with topics in Beta and Task. His research on Motor learning also deals with topics like

  • Brain activity and meditation and related Motor network and Neural correlates of consciousness,
  • Motor skill that connect with fields like Cognition.

His study in Transcranial magnetic stimulation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Gamma-aminobutyric acid metabolism, Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, Nuclear magnetic resonance and Audiology. In his study, Mental image, Posterior parietal cortex, Cognitive psychology and Motor control is strongly linked to Motor cortex, which falls under the umbrella field of Audiology. The various areas that he examines in his Functional magnetic resonance imaging study include Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Electroencephalography.
