Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition

Steven Laureys spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Minimally conscious state, Consciousness, Wakefulness and Cognition. All of his Neuroscience and Resting state fMRI, Brain mapping, Functional neuroimaging, Precuneus and Electroencephalography investigations are sub-components of the entire Neuroscience study. His Minimally conscious state study combines topics in areas such as Consciousness Disorders, Audiology and Traumatic brain injury.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Brain activity and meditation, Locked-in syndrome, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Level of consciousness in addition to Consciousness. His studies examine the connections between Wakefulness and genetics, as well as such issues in Anesthesia, with regards to Electrophysiology. His Cognition study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Stimulus, Cognitive science and Central nervous system.

His most cited work include:

  • Detecting Awareness in the Vegetative State (1184 citations)
  • Willful Modulation of Brain Activity in Disorders of Consciousness (937 citations)
  • Brain function in coma, vegetative state, and related disorders (772 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Consciousness, Minimally conscious state, Disorders of consciousness and Coma. Resting state fMRI, Neuroimaging, Functional neuroimaging, Cognition and Functional magnetic resonance imaging are subfields of Neuroscience in which his conducts study. His work carried out in the field of Consciousness brings together such families of science as Cognitive psychology, Psychiatry, Unconsciousness, Level of consciousness and Neural correlates of consciousness.

His Minimally conscious state research includes elements of Wakefulness, Electroencephalography, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Audiology. His Wakefulness research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Consciousness Disorders and Brain activity and meditation. His Coma study contributes to a more complete understanding of Anesthesia.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (34.65%)
  • Consciousness (28.45%)
  • Minimally conscious state (27.91%)

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

  • Disorders of consciousness (22.25%)
  • Minimally conscious state (27.91%)
  • Consciousness (28.45%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Disorders of consciousness, Minimally conscious state, Consciousness, Wakefulness and Neuroscience. His work is dedicated to discovering how Disorders of consciousness, Level of consciousness are connected with Physical therapy and other disciplines. His study with Minimally conscious state involves better knowledge in Coma.

His biological study deals with issues like Unconsciousness, which deal with fields such as Anesthetic. While the research belongs to areas of Wakefulness, he spends his time largely on the problem of Internal medicine, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Cardiology. His Neuroscience study is mostly concerned with Resting state fMRI, Neural correlates of consciousness, Neuroimaging and Default mode network.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Human consciousness is supported by dynamic complex patterns of brain signal coordination (121 citations)
  • Robust EEG-based cross-site and cross-protocol classification of states of consciousness. (83 citations)
  • Case-mix, care pathways, and outcomes in patients with traumatic brain injury in CENTER-TBI: a European prospective, multicentre, longitudinal, cohort study (69 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition

His main research concerns Wakefulness, Minimally conscious state, Consciousness, Electroencephalography and Neuroscience. His Wakefulness research includes themes of Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Internal medicine and Eye movement. His Minimally conscious state research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Disorders of consciousness, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Audiology.

Steven Laureys combines subjects such as Near-death experience, Unconsciousness, Set, Brain activity and meditation and Covert with his study of Consciousness. His Electroencephalography study combines topics in areas such as Dissociation, Locked-in syndrome, Hypnosis, Artificial intelligence and Healthy subjects. The Neuroscience study combines topics in areas such as Voxel and Pathological.
