Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Perception

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Visual cortex, Electrophysiology, Visual perception and Psychophysics. His is involved in several facets of Neuroscience study, as is seen by his studies on Stimulus, Cerebral cortex, Perception, Sensory system and Eye movement. His Sensory system study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Motion perception and Cognitive neuroscience.

His research in Visual cortex intersects with topics in Contrast, Receptive field and Macaque. His Visual perception research includes elements of Extrastriate cortex and Posterior parietal cortex. In Psychophysics, William T. Newsome works on issues like Neuron, which are connected to Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Cortical column and Homogeneity.

His most cited work include:

  • The variable discharge of cortical neurons: implications for connectivity, computation, and information coding (1821 citations)
  • The analysis of visual motion: a comparison of neuronal and psychophysical performance. (1650 citations)
  • Neural Basis of a Perceptual Decision in the Parietal Cortex (Area LIP) of the Rhesus Monkey (1344 citations)

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

William T. Newsome focuses on Neuroscience, Visual cortex, Stimulus, Macaque and Perception. His research in Electrophysiology, Psychophysics, Visual perception, Sensory system and Eye movement are components of Neuroscience. His study looks at the relationship between Visual cortex and fields such as Motion perception, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Cerebral cortex, Dorsum and Stimulation in addition to Stimulus. His studies in Macaque integrate themes in fields like Saccade, Visual field, Ibotenic acid and Anatomy. His Perception research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Motion, Cognitive psychology and Cognition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (81.05%)
  • Visual cortex (29.41%)
  • Stimulus (27.45%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (81.05%)
  • Prefrontal cortex (7.84%)
  • Stimulus (27.45%)

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

William T. Newsome mainly investigates Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Stimulus, Artificial intelligence and Cognition. Neuroscience is closely attributed to Ultrasound in his research. In his research on the topic of Prefrontal cortex, Eye movement, Sensory cue, Communication and Gaze is strongly related with Primate.

His study looks at the intersection of Stimulus and topics like Dorsum with Motor cortex, Visual perception and Laminar organization. His work deals with themes such as Ranking and Machine learning, which intersect with Artificial intelligence. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Perceptual decision and Sensory system.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Context-dependent computation by recurrent dynamics in prefrontal cortex (905 citations)
  • Effective Parameters for Ultrasound-Induced In Vivo Neurostimulation (255 citations)
  • Effective Parameters for Ultrasound-Induced In Vivo Neurostimulation (255 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Perception

William T. Newsome spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Neurophysiology, Stimulus and Brain mapping. When carried out as part of a general Neuroscience research project, his work on Gyrus is frequently linked to work in Opinion piece, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. William T. Newsome interconnects Recurrent neural network, Nerve net, Cognitive neuroscience and Mechanism in the investigation of issues within Prefrontal cortex.

He has researched Neurophysiology in several fields, including Cognitive psychology, Social psychology, Perceptual decision and Macaque. The concepts of his Stimulus study are interwoven with issues in Electromyography and Stimulation, Neurostimulation. William T. Newsome combines subjects such as Neuroscience research, Neurotechnology and Brain research with his study of Brain mapping.
