Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Neurotransmitter
  • Internal medicine

Ana M. Sebastião spends much of her time researching Adenosine, Adenosine receptor, Neuroscience, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. Her research in Adenosine intersects with topics in Receptor, Adenosine A1 receptor and Adenine nucleotide. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Caffeine and Neuroprotection.

Ana M. Sebastião interconnects G protein-coupled receptor, Pharmacology, Neurotransmitter and Population spike in the investigation of issues within Adenosine receptor. She has included themes like Synaptic plasticity, Neurotransmission, Long-term potentiation, Adenosine A2A receptor and Long-term depression in her Neuroscience study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Brain-derived neurotrophic factor, Hippocampus and Tropomyosin receptor kinase B in addition to Adenosine A2A receptor.

Her most cited work include:

  • Adenosine receptors in the nervous system: pathophysiological implications. (426 citations)
  • Adenosine A2 receptor-mediated excitatory actions on the nervous system. (273 citations)
  • Caffeine and Adenosine (259 citations)

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

Ana M. Sebastião mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Adenosine, Endocrinology, Internal medicine and Adenosine receptor. Her Neuroscience study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Synaptic plasticity, Long-term potentiation and Neurotransmission. Her Adenosine study incorporates themes from Receptor, Adenosine A2A receptor, Adenosine A1 receptor and Purinergic signalling.

Her study looks at the relationship between Adenosine A2A receptor and topics such as Tropomyosin receptor kinase B, which overlap with Cell biology. Her study in Endocrinology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Agonist, CGS-21680 and Antagonist. The various areas that Ana M. Sebastião examines in her Adenosine receptor study include Adenosine kinase, Caffeine, Neurotransmitter and Neuroprotection.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (62.74%)
  • Adenosine (41.40%)
  • Endocrinology (28.66%)

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

  • Neuroscience (62.74%)
  • Cell biology (24.84%)
  • Adenosine (41.40%)

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

Ana M. Sebastião mainly investigates Neuroscience, Cell biology, Adenosine, Neurogenesis and Synaptic plasticity. Her Neuroscience study combines topics in areas such as NMDA receptor and Disease. Her Cell biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Brain-derived neurotrophic factor, Neurotrophic factors, Neurodegeneration and Microglia.

Her Adenosine research integrates issues from Cancer research, Glutamatergic, Astrocyte, Adenosine receptor and Glioblastoma cell. Her Synaptic plasticity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Long-term potentiation and Memantine. The Long-term potentiation study combines topics in areas such as Tropomyosin receptor kinase B, Neurotransmission and Excitatory postsynaptic potential.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • GAT-3 Dysfunction Generates Tonic Inhibition in External Globus Pallidus Neurons in Parkinsonian Rodents. (21 citations)
  • Depression Assessment in Clinical Trials and Pre-clinical Tests: A Critical Review. (18 citations)
  • Inhibition of NMDA Receptors Prevents the Loss of BDNF Function Induced by Amyloid β (18 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Neurotransmitter
  • Internal medicine

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Cannabinoid, Glutamate receptor, Synaptic plasticity and Cell biology. The various areas that Ana M. Sebastião examines in her Neuroscience study include Receptor and Disease. Her Cannabinoid study deals with Cannabinoid receptor intersecting with Hippocampus, Prefrontal cortex and Perirhinal cortex.

Her research investigates the connection between Synaptic plasticity and topics such as Long-term potentiation that intersect with problems in Synapse. The concepts of her Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Brain-derived neurotrophic factor, Neurotrophic factors and Endocannabinoid system. Within one scientific family, she focuses on topics pertaining to Adenosine A1 receptor under Endocannabinoid system, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Adenosine A2A receptor.
