What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Perception

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Stimulus, Neuroscience, Audiology, N2pc and Visual perception. The various areas that Steven A. Hillyard examines in his Stimulus study include Electrophysiology, Perception, Communication and Selective attention, Cognition. His studies in Electrophysiology integrate themes in fields like Visual search, Vigilance and Auditory perception.

His Audiology research integrates issues from Selective auditory attention, Event-related potential, Electroencephalography and Scalp. His N2pc research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cognitive psychology, Visual N1, Visual processing, Artificial intelligence and Pattern recognition. His research integrates issues of Context, P600, N400, Early left anterior negativity and Prediction in language comprehension in his study of Cognitive psychology.

His most cited work include:

  • Reading senseless sentences: brain potentials reflect semantic incongruity (3540 citations)
  • Two varieties of long-latency positive waves evoked by unpredictable auditory stimuli in man. (1719 citations)
  • Guidelines for using human event-related potentials to study cognition: Recording standards and publication criteria (1690 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Stimulus, Cognitive psychology, Audiology and Communication. His Neuroscience and Visual cortex, N2pc, Electrophysiology, Visual N1 and Visual perception investigations all form part of his Neuroscience research activities. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Perception, Electroencephalography, Selective attention, Artificial intelligence and Pattern recognition.

His research in Cognitive psychology intersects with topics in N400, Social psychology and Visual attention. His work deals with themes such as Selective auditory attention, Event-related potential, Auditory perception and Scalp, which intersect with Audiology. His Communication research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cued speech, Speech recognition and Visual processing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (38.81%)
  • Stimulus (36.94%)
  • Cognitive psychology (30.97%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2020)?

  • Cognitive psychology (30.97%)
  • Neuroscience (38.81%)
  • Visual cortex (21.27%)

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

Steven A. Hillyard mainly investigates Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience, Visual cortex, Stimulus and Perception. As part of his studies on Neuroscience, he often connects relevant subjects like Occipital scalp. Steven A. Hillyard has included themes like Electroencephalography, Visual perception, N2pc, Facilitation and Visual field in his Visual cortex study.

His study in Visual perception is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Auditory stimuli, Visual processing, Visual system and Audiology. His N2pc study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Electrophysiology, Visual search, Visual N1 and P200. His work carried out in the field of Stimulus brings together such families of science as Communication, Cognition, Artificial intelligence and Pattern recognition.

Between 2009 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Neural basis of superior performance of action videogame players in an attention-demanding task. (146 citations)
  • Gamma band activity and the P3 reflect post-perceptual processes, not visual awareness (123 citations)
  • Visual processing of contour patterns under conditions of inattentional blindness (100 citations)
