Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Prefrontal cortex, Neuroscience, Working memory, Dopamine and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The subject of her Prefrontal cortex research is within the realm of Cognition. Amy F.T. Arnsten works mostly in the field of Neuroscience, limiting it down to topics relating to Methylphenidate and, in certain cases, Pharmacology, as a part of the same area of interest.

Her work carried out in the field of Working memory brings together such families of science as Nerve net, Electrophysiology, Impulsivity, Executive functions and Neurochemical. Amy F.T. Arnsten has researched Dopamine in several fields, including Neuropsychopharmacology, Monoamine neurotransmitter, Intracellular, Neuropharmacology and Monoaminergic. Her study in Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cognitive psychology, Guanfacine and Stimulant.

Her most cited work include:

  • Stress signalling pathways that impair prefrontal cortex structure and function (1687 citations)
  • Inverted-U dopamine D1 receptor actions on prefrontal neurons engaged in working memory. (753 citations)
  • Neurobiology of Executive Functions: Catecholamine Influences on Prefrontal Cortical Functions (732 citations)

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

Amy F.T. Arnsten mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Working memory, Cognition and Dopamine. Her Neuroscience research integrates issues from Schizophrenia and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. She interconnects Guanfacine, Agonist, Dendritic spine and Internal medicine, Stimulation in the investigation of issues within Prefrontal cortex.

Her research in Working memory focuses on subjects like Hippocampus, which are connected to Hippocampal formation and Amygdala. The Cognition study combines topics in areas such as Cognitive psychology and Arousal. Her Dopamine research includes elements of Neurochemical and Methylphenidate.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (71.06%)
  • Prefrontal cortex (57.02%)
  • Working memory (36.17%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (71.06%)
  • Prefrontal cortex (57.02%)
  • Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (13.62%)

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

Amy F.T. Arnsten spends much of her time researching Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, Working memory and Disease. The concepts of her Neuroscience study are interwoven with issues in Glutamate receptor and Neurodegeneration. Her Prefrontal cortex study improves the overall literature in Cognition.

Her Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex research incorporates themes from Ultrastructure, Postsynaptic potential, Macaque, Dendritic spine and Rhesus macaque. Her Working memory research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Neurophysiology, Schizophrenia, Period, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Stimulation. Her studies in Disease integrate themes in fields like Endosome, Neuroimaging and In vivo.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Assessing Synaptic Density in Alzheimer Disease With Synaptic Vesicle Glycoprotein 2A Positron Emission Tomographic Imaging. (130 citations)
  • Persistent Spiking Activity Underlies Working Memory. (102 citations)
  • Novel Dopamine Therapeutics for Cognitive Deficits in Schizophrenia (70 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

Her primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, Working memory and Immunoelectron microscopy. Her research in Neuroscience intersects with topics in Glutamate receptor, Schizophrenia and Disease. Her study in Prefrontal cortex is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Phenotype and Atrophy.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Postsynaptic potential, Metabotropic glutamate receptor 2, Macaque, Mitochondrion and Visual cortex. The Working memory study which covers Stimulation that intersects with Acetylcholine, Muscarinic acetylcholine receptor, Attentional control and Nicotinic agonist. Her work deals with themes such as Guanfacine, Signal transduction, Chronic stress and Prazosin, which intersect with Dopamine.
