Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Neuron
  • Enzyme

Alexander Dityatev mostly deals with Neuroscience, Cell biology, Synaptic plasticity, Long-term potentiation and Neural cell adhesion molecule. His Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Neural development, Metaplasticity, Cell adhesion molecule and Cellular differentiation. His Cell biology research integrates issues from Receptor, Postsynaptic potential, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Neurite.

His Synaptic plasticity study incorporates themes from Dendritic spine, Extracellular matrix, Perineuronal net, Neurotransmission and Long-term depression. As a part of the same scientific study, Alexander Dityatev usually deals with the Long-term potentiation, concentrating on Hippocampus and frequently concerns with Stimulation and Tenascin C. Alexander Dityatev combines subjects such as Hippocampal formation and Glutamate receptor with his study of Neural cell adhesion molecule.

His most cited work include:

  • Direct generation of functional dopaminergic neurons from mouse and human fibroblasts (774 citations)
  • Extracellular matrix molecules and synaptic plasticity (433 citations)
  • The dual role of the extracellular matrix in synaptic plasticity and homeostasis (312 citations)

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

Alexander Dityatev spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Synaptic plasticity, Cell biology, Long-term potentiation and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. His Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Postsynaptic potential and Neurotransmission. His study in Synaptic plasticity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Dendritic spine, Glutamate receptor and Perineuronal net.

His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Neurite and Neural cell adhesion molecule. His Neural cell adhesion molecule research includes themes of Neural development and Cell adhesion molecule. His work in Long-term potentiation addresses subjects such as Fear conditioning, which are connected to disciplines such as Classical conditioning.

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

Alexander Dityatev focuses on Neuroscience, Cell biology, Synaptic plasticity, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Extracellular matrix. His research on Neuroscience often connects related topics like Neurotransmission. His work on Extracellular as part of his general Cell biology study is frequently connected to ECM Protein, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

Alexander Dityatev has researched Synaptic plasticity in several fields, including Perineuronal net, Granule cell, Integrin and Axon initial segment. His Perineuronal net research includes elements of Neuroinflammation and Synaptogenesis. Alexander Dityatev has included themes like Proteases, Endocytosis, Microglia and Protein biosynthesis in his Extracellular matrix study.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Crosstalk between glia, extracellular matrix and neurons (88 citations)
  • Crosstalk between glia, extracellular matrix and neurons (88 citations)
  • Shaping Synapses by the Neural Extracellular Matrix. (55 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Neuron
  • Enzyme

His primary scientific interests are in Synaptic plasticity, Cell biology, Perineuronal net, Neuroscience and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. The Synaptic plasticity study which covers Axon initial segment that intersects with Neurite, Neuroinflammation, Extracellular matrix and Granule. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Downregulation and upregulation and 5-HT receptor.

His research in Perineuronal net intersects with topics in Postsynaptic Current, Patch clamp, Depolarization and Synaptogenesis. The study incorporates disciplines such as Glutamate receptor, Glutamatergic and Neurotransmission in addition to Neuroscience. His Excitatory postsynaptic potential study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hippocampal formation, Biophysics and Ionotropic effect.
