Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Neuron

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Synaptic plasticity, Long-term potentiation, Cell biology and NMDA receptor. His Neuroscience study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as AMPA receptor. His Synaptic plasticity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Memory formation, Contextual fear, Functional connectivity and Engram.

His Long-term potentiation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Endocrinology, Cingulate cortex, Long-term depression and Neurotransmission. His study in NMDA receptor is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Glutamate receptor and Cyclic adenosine monophosphate. The Excitatory postsynaptic potential study combines topics in areas such as Mutation, Allosteric modulator and Metabotropic glutamate receptor 5, Metabotropic glutamate receptor.

His most cited work include:

  • Spatially resolved dynamics of cAMP and protein kinase A subunits in Aplysia sensory neurons (499 citations)
  • Autistic-like social behaviour in Shank2 -mutant mice improved by restoring NMDA receptor function (444 citations)
  • Autistic-like social behaviour in Shank2 -mutant mice improved by restoring NMDA receptor function (444 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Cell biology, Synaptic plasticity, Long-term potentiation and Aplysia. As part of his studies on Neuroscience, Bong-Kiun Kaang often connects relevant areas like NMDA receptor. His Cell biology research integrates issues from Neurite, Regulation of gene expression, Biochemistry and Gene expression.

His work deals with themes such as Anterior cingulate cortex, Neuroplasticity and Long-term depression, which intersect with Synaptic plasticity. His research integrates issues of Dendritic spine, AMPA receptor, Chronic pain and Cingulate cortex in his study of Long-term potentiation. He interconnects Sensory neuron, Neurotransmission, Neural facilitation, Neuron and Molecular biology in the investigation of issues within Aplysia.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (63.10%)
  • Cell biology (28.41%)
  • Synaptic plasticity (27.31%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (63.10%)
  • Long-term potentiation (24.35%)
  • Hippocampus (14.39%)

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

Neuroscience, Long-term potentiation, Hippocampus, Synaptic plasticity and Hippocampal formation are his primary areas of study. Bong-Kiun Kaang combines subjects such as Peripheral nerve injury and Gene with his study of Neuroscience. His Long-term potentiation study incorporates themes from Calorie restriction, Ectopic expression, Cell type, Ras Signaling Pathway and MAPK/ERK pathway.

He has included themes like NEURL2, Calcium and Protein biosynthesis in his Hippocampus study. His Synaptic plasticity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Facilitation, CCCTC-Binding Factor, NMDA receptor and Regulator. His work carried out in the field of Excitatory postsynaptic potential brings together such families of science as Forebrain, Memory consolidation, Neocortex, Aplysia and Cyclic adenosine monophosphate.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Early Correction of N-Methyl-D-Aspartate Receptor Function Improves Autistic-like Social Behaviors in Adult Shank2-/- Mice. (22 citations)
  • Imaging and analysis of genetically encoded calcium indicators linking neural circuits and behaviors (12 citations)
  • Excitatory neuron–specific SHP2-ERK signaling network regulates synaptic plasticity and memory (10 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Neuron

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Synaptic plasticity, Long-term potentiation, Hippocampus and Hippocampal formation. His work deals with themes such as Hypotonia, Neurodegeneration and Cyclic adenosine monophosphate, which intersect with Neuroscience. His research in Synaptic plasticity tackles topics such as NMDA receptor which are related to areas like Social behavior and Endocrinology.

His Long-term potentiation study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Cell biology. His Hippocampus study combines topics in areas such as Neocortex, Anterior cingulate cortex, Forebrain and Aplysia.
