Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Law
  • Retina

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Visual cortex, Ocular dominance column, Orientation column and Monocular deprivation. His Geniculate body and Striate cortex study in the realm of Neuroscience interacts with subjects such as Chromatic scale and Rod-Cone Interaction. His research in Visual cortex focuses on subjects like Cortex, which are connected to Cerebral cortex.

As part of his studies on Ocular dominance column, Torsten N. Wiesel often connects relevant subjects like Anatomy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Occipital lobe and Receptive field in addition to Orientation column. Particularly relevant to Binocular neurons is his body of work in Receptive field.

His most cited work include:

  • Receptive fields, binocular interaction and functional architecture in the cat's visual cortex (10405 citations)
  • Receptive fields and functional architecture of monkey striate cortex (5107 citations)
  • Receptive fields of single neurones in the cat's striate cortex (3240 citations)

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

Torsten N. Wiesel mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Visual cortex, Anatomy, Orientation column and Receptive field. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as CATS and Neuroscience. His research in Visual cortex is mostly concerned with Visual system.

His Anatomy research incorporates elements of Ocular dominance, Ocular dominance column, Retina and Macaque. His Orientation column research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cerebral cortex, Binocular neurons, Orientation and Cortex. His work in Receptive field addresses subjects such as Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, which are connected to disciplines such as Axon.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (37.63%)
  • Visual cortex (35.48%)
  • Anatomy (32.26%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1994-2017)?

  • Visual cortex (35.48%)
  • Law (4.30%)
  • Anatomy (32.26%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Visual cortex, Law, Anatomy, Neuroscience and Cognitive science. His work on Orientation column and Extrastriate cortex as part of general Visual cortex research is frequently linked to Medical school and Lunate sulcus, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work on Government, Memorandum, Human services and Federal law as part of general Law study is frequently linked to Embryo Disposition, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His work on Suture as part of general Anatomy research is frequently linked to Brain drain, Circulation and Mechanism, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. Torsten N. Wiesel combines topics linked to Set with his work on Neuroscience. The Cognitive science study combines topics in areas such as Visual perception, Feeling and Element.

Between 1994 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • Early exploration of the visual cortex. (155 citations)
  • Brain and Visual Perception: The Story of a 25-Year Collaboration (132 citations)
  • Binocular Stereoscopy in Visual Areas V-2, V-3, and V-3A of the Macaque Monkey (16 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Retina
  • Law

Torsten N. Wiesel spends much of his time researching Visual cortex, Cognitive science, Visual perception, Part iii and Neuroscience. His Visual cortex research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Depth perception, Binocular disparity and Anatomy. His Cognitive science study combines topics in areas such as Hierarchical organization and Feeling, Social psychology.

His study of Neuroscience brings together topics like Plasticity and Visual memory.
