Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Taste
  • Neuroscience

His primary areas of investigation include Taste, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Licking and Neuroscience. Alan C. Spector has included themes like Stimulus, Electrophysiology, Developmental psychology and Sucrose in his Taste study. His Electrophysiology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Anatomy and Chorda.

As part of his studies on Internal medicine, Alan C. Spector often connects relevant subjects like Anesthesia. His Endocrinology study often links to related topics such as Taste aversion. His Taste aversion research includes themes of Ingestion and Lesion.

His most cited work include:

  • Analytical issues in the evaluation of food deprivation and sucrose concentration effects on the microstructure of licking behavior in the rat. (185 citations)
  • Gastric bypass reduces fat intake and preference (181 citations)
  • A high-throughput screening procedure for identifying mice with aberrant taste and oromotor function. (144 citations)

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

Alan C. Spector mostly deals with Taste, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Licking and Taste aversion. His Taste research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Stimulus, Glossopharyngeal nerve, Anatomy and Sucrose. His work deals with themes such as Chorda tympani nerve and Chorda, which intersect with Internal medicine.

His Endocrinology research incorporates elements of Lesion, Receptor, Electrophysiology and Amiloride. His Licking research incorporates themes from Meal, Animal science and Denervation. His Taste aversion research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Anesthesia, Classical conditioning and Saccharin.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Taste (65.29%)
  • Internal medicine (56.47%)
  • Endocrinology (55.29%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Taste (65.29%)
  • Internal medicine (56.47%)
  • Endocrinology (55.29%)

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

Alan C. Spector mainly focuses on Taste, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience and Taste receptor. Alan C. Spector combines subjects such as Receptor and Sucrose with his study of Taste. Alan C. Spector is studying Licking, which is a component of Internal medicine.

His study in the field of Gastric bypass surgery, Gastric bypass and Saccharin is also linked to topics like Quinine. His studies in Taste receptor integrate themes in fields like Taste function, Electrophysiology, Sensory system and Amiloride. His research in Taste aversion intersects with topics in Cerebral cortex, Lesion, Insular cortex and Weight loss.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The bad taste of medicines: overview of basic research on bitter taste. (129 citations)
  • Gastric bypass in rats does not decrease appetitive behavior towards sweet or fatty fluids despite blunting preferential intake of sugar and fat (32 citations)
  • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass in rats progressively decreases the proportion of fat calories selected from a palatable cafeteria diet. (27 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Taste

Alan C. Spector spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Taste, Taste aversion and Gustatory cortex. His Internal medicine study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Sugar. The study incorporates disciplines such as Anesthesia and Sensory system in addition to Taste.

Taste aversion is often connected to Lesion in his work. His studies deal with areas such as Cerebral cortex and Insular cortex as well as Gustatory cortex. His Licking study incorporates themes from Stimulus and Psychophysics.
