Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Neuroscience
  • Neuron

Neuroscience, Thalamus, Electrophysiology, Electroencephalography and Bursting are his primary areas of study. His studies deal with areas such as Synaptic noise and Neurotransmission as well as Neuroscience. He interconnects Oscillation, Cortex, Anatomy and Neuron in the investigation of issues within Thalamus.

His Electrophysiology research includes elements of Information representation, Biophysics, Network activity and Computational model. The various areas that Alain Destexhe examines in his Electroencephalography study include Jump, Intracellular, Inhibitory control and Epilepsy. The concepts of his Bursting study are interwoven with issues in Calcium, Reticular connective tissue and GABAA receptor.

His most cited work include:

  • The high-conductance state of neocortical neurons in vivo. (879 citations)
  • Low-dimensional chaos in an instance of epilepsy. (683 citations)
  • Simulation of networks of spiking neurons: A review of tools and strategies (661 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Cerebral cortex, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Artificial intelligence. His study involves Electrophysiology, Thalamus, Membrane potential, Electroencephalography and Cortex, a branch of Neuroscience. Alain Destexhe has included themes like Bursting and Reticular connective tissue in his Thalamus study.

His research in Cerebral cortex intersects with topics in Sleep in non-human animals and Soma. His study in Inhibitory postsynaptic potential is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Wakefulness, Postsynaptic potential, Biological system and Neuron. His work carried out in the field of Excitatory postsynaptic potential brings together such families of science as Conductance and Neocortex.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (58.85%)
  • Cerebral cortex (19.01%)
  • Inhibitory postsynaptic potential (16.93%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (58.85%)
  • Inhibitory postsynaptic potential (16.93%)
  • Excitatory postsynaptic potential (16.15%)

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

Alain Destexhe focuses on Neuroscience, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Biological system and Slow-wave sleep. In his work, Alain Destexhe performs multidisciplinary research in Neuroscience and Sodium channel. As a member of one scientific family, Alain Destexhe mostly works in the field of Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, focusing on Neuron and, on occasion, Local field potential, Efferent, Neocortex and Kernel.

As a part of the same scientific family, Alain Destexhe mostly works in the field of Excitatory postsynaptic potential, focusing on Memory consolidation and, on occasion, Acetylcholine receptor, Agonist and Cholinergic. His Biological system study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Exponential integrate-and-fire and Exponential function. His research integrates issues of Electrophysiology, Artificial neural network, Mean field theory and Asynchronous communication in his study of Exponential function.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Scientific Case for Brain Simulations (47 citations)
  • The Scientific Case for Brain Simulations (47 citations)
  • Modeling mesoscopic cortical dynamics using a mean-field model of conductance-based networks of adaptive exponential integrate-and-fire neurons. (26 citations)

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

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Neuroscience
  • Neuron

Alain Destexhe spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Exponential function, Neuron, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Visual cortex. His work on Neuroscience deals in particular with Computational neuroscience, Soma and Electrophysiology. The Exponential function study which covers Asynchronous communication that intersects with Conductance and Nonlinear system.

His work focuses on many connections between Neuron and other disciplines, such as Human brain, that overlap with his field of interest in Epilepsy, GABAergic and Cortical network. His work deals with themes such as Wakefulness, Slow-wave sleep and Premovement neuronal activity, which intersect with Inhibitory postsynaptic potential. The Excitatory postsynaptic potential study combines topics in areas such as Cerebral cortex, Principle of maximum entropy, Hippocampal formation, Cortex and Hippocampus.
