Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Gene

Walter Paulus mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Stimulation, Transcranial magnetic stimulation and Motor cortex. His work in Neuroplasticity, Brain stimulation, Primary motor cortex, Transcranial alternating current stimulation and Cognition are all subfields of Neuroscience research. His Transcranial direct-current stimulation study incorporates themes from Somatosensory system, Cortex, Pyramidal tracts and Motor learning.

His Stimulation research includes themes of Electroencephalography, Central nervous system, Facilitation, Depolarization and Visual cortex. His work in Transcranial magnetic stimulation addresses issues such as Physical medicine and rehabilitation, which are connected to fields such as Psychiatry. His research on Motor cortex also deals with topics like

  • Human brain, which have a strong connection to Premotor cortex,
  • Levodopa most often made with reference to Dopamine.

His most cited work include:

  • Excitability changes induced in the human motor cortex by weak transcranial direct current stimulation. (3532 citations)
  • How to diagnose diastolic heart failure: a consensus statement on the diagnosis of heart failure with normal left ventricular ejection fraction by the Heart Failure and Echocardiography Associations of the European Society of Cardiology (2122 citations)
  • Transcranial direct current stimulation: State of the art 2008 (1994 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Stimulation, Transcranial magnetic stimulation and Transcranial direct-current stimulation. Motor cortex, Neuroplasticity, Primary motor cortex, Brain stimulation and Transcranial alternating current stimulation are the primary areas of interest in his Neuroscience study. His Internal medicine research integrates issues from Endocrinology and Cardiology.

His Stimulation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Audiology, Intensity, Central nervous system, Human brain and Visual cortex. Walter Paulus has included themes like Facilitation, Electrophysiology, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Evoked potential in his Transcranial magnetic stimulation study. His Transcranial direct-current stimulation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cognition and Motor learning.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (42.95%)
  • Internal medicine (28.63%)
  • Stimulation (24.14%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (42.95%)
  • Internal medicine (28.63%)
  • Stimulation (24.14%)

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

Walter Paulus mainly investigates Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Stimulation, Transcranial magnetic stimulation and Cardiology. His is doing research in Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Motor cortex, Neuroplasticity, Cognition and Electric stimulation, both of which are found in Neuroscience. His research in Transcranial direct-current stimulation intersects with topics in Brain stimulation and Motor learning.

The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Diabetes mellitus and Endocrinology. In his study, Cognitive psychology is strongly linked to Audiology, which falls under the umbrella field of Stimulation. His work investigates the relationship between Transcranial magnetic stimulation and topics such as Physical medicine and rehabilitation that intersect with problems in Clinical neurophysiology.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Evidence-based guidelines on the therapeutic use of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) (574 citations)
  • A technical guide to tDCS, and related non-invasive brain stimulation tools (556 citations)
  • Phenotype-Specific Treatment of Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction: A Multiorgan Roadmap. (422 citations)
