What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Statistics

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Brain mapping, Cognitive psychology, Resting state fMRI and Artificial intelligence. He focuses mostly in the field of Neuroscience, narrowing it down to topics relating to Complex system and, in certain cases, Distributed computing. His Brain mapping study combines topics in areas such as Nerve net, Functional brain, Human brain and Default mode network, Task-positive network.

His Cognitive psychology research includes themes of Frontal lobe and Semantic memory, Cognition. His Resting state fMRI research integrates issues from Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Functional connectivity, Human Connectome Project. He combines subjects such as Information processing and Pattern recognition with his study of Artificial intelligence.

His most cited work include:

  • The Attention System of the Human Brain (6140 citations)
  • Spurious but systematic correlations in functional connectivity MRI networks arise from subject motion (4634 citations)
  • Functional network organization of the human brain (2413 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Cognitive psychology, Brain mapping and Cognition. His study in Neuroscience focuses on Resting state fMRI, Functional connectivity, Human brain, Cerebral cortex and Stimulus. His study in Functional magnetic resonance imaging is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Temporal cortex, Artificial intelligence and Pattern recognition.

His study looks at the relationship between Cognitive psychology and fields such as Visual perception, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. The Brain mapping study combines topics in areas such as Nerve net, Frontal lobe, Functional neuroimaging, Neuroimaging and Default mode network. The concepts of his Cognition study are interwoven with issues in Brain activity and meditation, Positron emission tomography, Functional imaging and Audiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (52.23%)
  • Functional magnetic resonance imaging (23.21%)
  • Cognitive psychology (23.66%)

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

  • Neuroscience (52.23%)
  • Functional connectivity (16.52%)
  • Artificial intelligence (16.07%)

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

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Functional connectivity, Artificial intelligence, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Functional networks. Steven E. Petersen connects Neuroscience with Basal ganglia in his study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Joint attention and Topology.

His Artificial intelligence study incorporates themes from Reliability, Machine learning and Pattern recognition. His Functional magnetic resonance imaging research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Autism spectrum disorder, Functional brain, Audiology and Brain organization. His study looks at the intersection of Human brain and topics like Cognition with Neuroimaging and Similarity.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Functional Brain Networks Are Dominated by Stable Group and Individual Factors, Not Cognitive or Daily Variation (337 citations)
  • Spatial and Temporal Organization of the Individual Human Cerebellum (106 citations)
  • Behavioral interventions for reducing head motion during MRI scans in children. (78 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Statistics

Steven E. Petersen spends much of his time researching Functional connectivity, Neuroscience, Resting state fMRI, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Functional networks. His work investigates the relationship between Functional connectivity and topics such as Brain organization that intersect with problems in Evolutionary biology. Steven E. Petersen mostly deals with Human brain in his studies of Neuroscience.

As a part of the same scientific family, Steven E. Petersen mostly works in the field of Human brain, focusing on Cognition and, on occasion, Brain activity and meditation, Personalized medicine and Computational biology. His work carried out in the field of Resting state fMRI brings together such families of science as Cerebellum, Cerebral cortex and Thalamus. His studies deal with areas such as Filter and Functional brain as well as Functional magnetic resonance imaging.
