Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Psychiatry
  • Internal medicine
  • Major depressive disorder

Epilepsy, Psychiatry, Psychogenic disease, Clinical psychology and Conversion disorder are his primary areas of study. W. Curt LaFrance has researched Epilepsy in several fields, including Psychosocial, Neurology, Intubation and Anxiety. His study in the fields of Neuropsychiatry, Semiology and Neglect under the domain of Psychiatry overlaps with other disciplines such as Generalized estimating equation.

His Psychogenic disease research focuses on subjects like Electroencephalography, which are linked to Pathognomonic and Pediatrics. His work in Clinical psychology covers topics such as Cognition which are related to areas like Depression, Frontal cortex, Personality changes, Ictal and Dementia. W. Curt LaFrance combines subjects such as Psychological intervention, Functional movement disorder and Randomized controlled trial with his study of Conversion disorder.

His most cited work include:

  • Executive control function: a review of its promise and challenges for clinical research. A report from the Committee on Research of the American Neuropsychiatric Association. (594 citations)
  • Minimum requirements for the diagnosis of psychogenic nonepileptic seizures: a staged approach: a report from the International League Against Epilepsy Nonepileptic Seizures Task Force. (360 citations)
  • Minimum requirements for the diagnosis of psychogenic nonepileptic seizures: a staged approach: a report from the International League Against Epilepsy Nonepileptic Seizures Task Force. (360 citations)

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

W. Curt LaFrance mostly deals with Psychiatry, Psychogenic disease, Epilepsy, Clinical psychology and Conversion disorder. His study in Anxiety, Neuropsychiatry, Cognition, Mental health and Comorbidity are all subfields of Psychiatry. His research investigates the connection between Psychogenic disease and topics such as Electroencephalography that intersect with problems in Intensive care medicine.

The Epilepsy study combines topics in areas such as Psychosocial, Physical therapy, Pediatrics and Depression. His work deals with themes such as Ictal, Personality Assessment Inventory and Neuropsychology, which intersect with Clinical psychology. In his research, Psychological intervention is intimately related to Randomized controlled trial, which falls under the overarching field of Conversion disorder.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Psychiatry (67.13%)
  • Psychogenic disease (68.53%)
  • Epilepsy (60.14%)

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

  • Psychogenic disease (68.53%)
  • Conversion disorder (35.66%)
  • Epilepsy (60.14%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Psychogenic disease, Conversion disorder, Epilepsy, Psychiatry and Physical therapy. His study in Psychogenic disease is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Clinical psychology, Physical examination, Audiology and Traumatic brain injury. His research integrates issues of Functional movement disorder and Neurology, Neuroscience in his study of Conversion disorder.

His Epilepsy research integrates issues from Intervention, Mental health and Electroencephalography. His work on Anxiety and Neuropsychiatry as part of general Psychiatry study is frequently linked to Injury prevention, Suicide prevention and Occupational safety and health, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Physical therapy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Baseline characteristics and Randomized controlled trial.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Assessment of the Predictive Value of Outpatient Smartphone Videos for Diagnosis of Epileptic Seizures. (25 citations)
  • Corticolimbic fast-tracking: enhanced multimodal integration in functional neurological disorder (23 citations)
  • Clinical and neural responses to cognitive behavioral therapy for functional tremor. (22 citations)

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

  • Psychiatry
  • Internal medicine
  • Major depressive disorder

His main research concerns Psychogenic disease, Physical therapy, Conversion disorder, Epilepsy and Rating scale. His Psychogenic disease research incorporates themes from Personality disorders, Head injury, Movement disorders and Cognitive behavioral therapy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Video electroencephalogram, Predictive value, Medical history and Physical examination in addition to Physical therapy.

The various areas that he examines in his Conversion disorder study include Insula, Neuroimaging and Putamen. His Epilepsy research is under the purview of Psychiatry. His Rating scale research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Emotional dysregulation, Observational study, Randomized controlled trial and Quality of life.
