What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine
  • Neuroscience

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Dopamine, Cerebral blood flow and Neuroscience. His Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Oxygen tension and Cardiology. His biological study deals with issues like Psychosis, which deal with fields such as Schizophrenia.

Albert Gjedde interconnects Caudate nucleus, Putamen, Basal ganglia and Human brain in the investigation of issues within Dopamine. His Caudate nucleus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biochemistry and Parkinson's disease. Albert Gjedde has researched Cerebral blood flow in several fields, including Magnetic resonance imaging, Hemodynamics, Blood flow and Hyperventilation.

His most cited work include:

  • Consensus nomenclature for in vivo imaging of reversibly binding radioligands (1571 citations)
  • Lateralization of phonetic and pitch discrimination in speech processing (1311 citations)
  • Positron emission tomography reveals elevated D2 dopamine receptors in drug-naive schizophrenics (840 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience, Dopamine and Cerebral blood flow. His research investigates the connection between Internal medicine and topics such as Human brain that intersect with problems in Biochemistry. His research in Endocrinology intersects with topics in Receptor and In vivo.

His work on Neuroscience deals in particular with Neuroimaging, Visual cortex, Stimulus, Basal ganglia and Prefrontal cortex. Parkinson's disease and Caudate nucleus is closely connected to Putamen in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Dopamine. His Cerebral blood flow research incorporates elements of Nuclear medicine, Hemodynamics, Blood flow and Oxygen.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (46.52%)
  • Endocrinology (38.61%)
  • Neuroscience (30.42%)

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

  • Internal medicine (46.52%)
  • Endocrinology (38.61%)
  • Neuroscience (30.42%)

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

His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience, Carbohydrate metabolism and Positron emission tomography. His Internal medicine research focuses on Cardiology and how it connects with Brainstem. His work deals with themes such as Receptor and Brain mapping, which intersect with Endocrinology.

His study on Positron emission tomography also encompasses disciplines like

  • Serotonin that connect with fields like Depression,
  • Human brain, which have a strong connection to Oxygen. He combines subjects such as Caudate nucleus, Dopamine receptor and Dopamine receptor D2 with his study of Striatum. His Dopamine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pathological, Iowa gambling task and Addiction.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Diagnostic precision of PET imaging and functional MRI in disorders of consciousness: a clinical validation study (257 citations)
  • Lactate Receptor Sites Link Neurotransmission, Neurovascular Coupling, and Brain Energy Metabolism (162 citations)
  • In Alzheimer's Disease, 6-Month Treatment with GLP-1 Analog Prevents Decline of Brain Glucose Metabolism: Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Double-Blind Clinical Trial. (145 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme
  • Neuroscience

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Carbohydrate metabolism, Neuroscience and Cardiology. His work carried out in the field of Internal medicine brings together such families of science as Liraglutide and Type 2 diabetes. The concepts of his Endocrinology study are interwoven with issues in Receptor and Thalamus.

His Carbohydrate metabolism study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Glucose transporter, Hypoglycemia, Glucagon-like peptide-1 and Blood–brain barrier. Neuroscience is closely attributed to Pathological in his study. As part of the same scientific family, Albert Gjedde usually focuses on Dopamine, concentrating on Serotonergic and intersecting with Raclopride.
