Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine

Barry J. Everitt mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Dopamine, Nucleus accumbens, Addiction and Amygdala. His Classical conditioning research extends to Neuroscience, which is thematically connected. He has begun a study into Dopamine, looking into Endocrinology and Internal medicine.

His Nucleus accumbens research also works with subjects such as

  • Kainate receptor that intertwine with fields like Dopamine receptor,
  • Brain mapping, which have a strong connection to Cingulate cortex and Anterior cingulate cortex. His work in Addiction covers topics such as Developmental psychology which are related to areas like Serial reaction time. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Stimulus, Cognitive psychology and Hippocampus.

His most cited work include:

  • Neural systems of reinforcement for drug addiction: from actions to habits to compulsion (2820 citations)
  • Emotion and motivation: the role of the amygdala, ventral striatum, and prefrontal cortex (1724 citations)
  • CENTRAL CHOLINERGIC SYSTEMS AND COGNITION (1160 citations)

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

Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Addiction and Dopamine are his primary areas of study. Neuroscience connects with themes related to Classical conditioning in his study. His Classical conditioning research incorporates themes from Fear conditioning, Cognitive psychology and Reinforcement.

His study looks at the relationship between Addiction and topics such as Self-administration, which overlap with Heroin. His research integrates issues of Catecholamine and Neurochemical in his study of Dopamine. The concepts of his Nucleus accumbens study are interwoven with issues in Basal ganglia, Amphetamine and Anterior cingulate cortex.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (53.94%)
  • Internal medicine (26.44%)
  • Endocrinology (26.23%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (53.94%)
  • Addiction (22.60%)
  • Impulsivity (7.89%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Addiction, Impulsivity, Memory consolidation and Amygdala. Much of his study explores Neuroscience relationship to Developmental psychology. His Addiction study incorporates themes from Self-administration, Internal medicine, Abstinence and Endocrinology.

His Impulsivity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cerebral cortex, Genetics, Genome and Candidate gene. Barry J. Everitt has researched Memory consolidation in several fields, including Fear memory, Extinction, Classical conditioning and NMDA receptor. Barry J. Everitt interconnects Basal ganglia and Drug seeking in the investigation of issues within Striatum.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Drug Addiction: Updating Actions to Habits to Compulsions Ten Years On (514 citations)
  • From the ventral to the dorsal striatum: Devolving views of their roles in drug addiction (443 citations)
  • Neural and psychological mechanisms underlying compulsive drug seeking habits and drug memories--indications for novel treatments of addiction. (199 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine
  • Neuroscience

His primary areas of investigation include Addiction, Neuroscience, Developmental psychology, Impulsivity and Striatum. The Addiction study combines topics in areas such as Self-administration, Abstinence, Substance abuse and Drug. His research related to Amygdala, Nucleus accumbens, Prefrontal cortex, Memory consolidation and Infralimbic cortex might be considered part of Neuroscience.

Barry J. Everitt is conducting research in Endocrinology and Internal medicine as part of his Nucleus accumbens study. Within one scientific family, Barry J. Everitt focuses on topics pertaining to Stimulant under Impulsivity, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Novelty and Fallypride. His Striatum research is under the purview of Dopamine.
