Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology

Suzana Herculano-Houzel mostly deals with Neuroscience, Neuron, Cerebral cortex, Human brain and Primate. Many of her research projects under Neuroscience are closely connected to Synchronization and Oscillation with Synchronization and Oscillation, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. Her Neuron research integrates issues from Cerebellum, Physiology and Brain function.

Her work carried out in the field of Cerebral cortex brings together such families of science as Olfactory bulb, Neuroplasticity and Energy budget. Suzana Herculano-Houzel has included themes like Cell counting, Cognition, Neuroglia and Brain Mass in her Human brain study. Her Primate research incorporates elements of Computational neuroscience, Forebrain and Cerebrum.

Her most cited work include:

  • Equal numbers of neuronal and nonneuronal cells make the human brain an isometrically scaled‐up primate brain (1232 citations)
  • The Human Brain in Numbers: A Linearly Scaled-up Primate Brain (755 citations)
  • Isotropic Fractionator: A Simple, Rapid Method for the Quantification of Total Cell and Neuron Numbers in the Brain (369 citations)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Cerebral cortex, Cerebellum, Primate and Anatomy. Her Human brain, Cognition, Neuron and Cortex study in the realm of Neuroscience connects with subjects such as Scaling. Her Cerebral cortex study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Glires, Sensory system, Evolution of mammals and Brain Mass.

Her Cerebellum research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Olfactory bulb and Hippocampus. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Neocortex, Neuroglia and Allometry. The concepts of her Anatomy study are interwoven with issues in Cellular composition and Spinal cord.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (73.47%)
  • Cerebral cortex (45.92%)
  • Cerebellum (27.55%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Cerebral cortex (45.92%)
  • Neuroscience (73.47%)
  • Cortical neurons (8.16%)

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

Suzana Herculano-Houzel mainly investigates Cerebral cortex, Neuroscience, Cortical neurons, Cognition and Thermogenin. Suzana Herculano-Houzel interconnects Evolutionary biology and Cerebellum, Enlarged cerebellum in the investigation of issues within Cerebral cortex. Her research in Cerebellum intersects with topics in Cognitive skill, Sensory system, Olfactory bulb, Hippocampus and Environmental enrichment.

Her Enlarged cerebellum study incorporates themes from Human echolocation, Shrew and Anatomy. Suzana Herculano-Houzel is involved in the study of Neuroscience that focuses on Consciousness in particular. Her Cognition research includes elements of Adaptation and Sexual maturity.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • White matter volume and white/gray matter ratio in mammalian species as a consequence of the universal scaling of cortical folding (8 citations)
  • Longevity and sexual maturity vary across species with number of cortical neurons, and humans are no exception. (7 citations)
  • A community-based transcriptomics classification and nomenclature of neocortical cell types. (4 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
