What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Dopamine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Dopamine, Striatum, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His Neuroscience research integrates issues from Anatomy and Transplantation. His research in Transplantation intersects with topics in Central nervous system disease, Caudate nucleus, Parkinson's disease, Putamen and Pathology.

The Dopamine study combines topics in areas such as Cell, Neuron and Cell biology. His Striatum research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Nerve growth factor, Glial fibrillary acidic protein, Neurotransmission and Basal ganglia, Globus pallidus. His studies in Substantia nigra integrate themes in fields like Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor, Lesion and Apomorphine.

His most cited work include:

  • Lewy bodies in grafted neurons in subjects with Parkinson's disease suggest host-to-graft disease propagation. (1258 citations)
  • Dopamine neuron systems in the brain: an update. (1112 citations)
  • The organization of the ascending catecholamine neuron systems in the rat brain as revealed by the glyoxylic acid fluorescence method. (1028 citations)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Dopamine, Internal medicine, Transplantation and Endocrinology. His Neuroscience research incorporates elements of Lesion and Parkinson's disease. His studies deal with areas such as Neuron and Midbrain as well as Dopamine.

His Transplantation research focuses on Anatomy and how it connects with Spinal cord. His Endocrinology research incorporates themes from Serotonin, Anesthesia and Nerve growth factor. The study incorporates disciplines such as Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor and Neurotrophic factors in addition to Substantia nigra.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (41.14%)
  • Dopamine (26.09%)
  • Internal medicine (22.45%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (41.14%)
  • Parkinson's disease (11.65%)
  • Dopamine (26.09%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Parkinson's disease, Dopamine, Transplantation and Dopaminergic. His work deals with themes such as Neurotrophic factors and Neurodegeneration, which intersect with Neuroscience. Endocrinology and Internal medicine are inextricably linked to his Dopamine research.

His research integrates issues of Serotonergic and Serotonin in his study of Endocrinology. His Transplantation research integrates issues from Embryonic stem cell, Clinical trial and Progenitor cell, Stem cell, Neural stem cell. Anders Björklund combines subjects such as Molecular biology and Anatomy with his study of Embryonic stem cell.

Between 2008 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Direct conversion of human fibroblasts to dopaminergic neurons (587 citations)
  • TFEB-mediated autophagy rescues midbrain dopamine neurons from α-synuclein toxicity (376 citations)
  • Generation of induced neurons via direct conversion in vivo. (279 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine
  • Gene

His primary areas of study are Dopamine, Neuroscience, Parkinson's disease, Dopaminergic and Substantia nigra. Anders Björklund specializes in Dopamine, namely Striatum. His biological study deals with issues like Fetus, which deal with fields such as Anatomy, Bioinformatics, MEDLINE and Potency.

His Dopaminergic research includes themes of Phenotype and Transplantation. Anders Björklund has researched Transplantation in several fields, including Neurogenesis and Embryonic stem cell. His study explores the link between Substantia nigra and topics such as Neurotransmission that cross with problems in Nomifensine and Reuptake.
