What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Gene

Bruce S. McEwen mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience, Hippocampus and Hippocampal formation. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Stressor and Internal medicine. His work investigates the relationship between Endocrinology and topics such as Receptor that intersect with problems in Preoptic area.

His research investigates the connection between Hippocampus and topics such as NMDA receptor that intersect with problems in Glutamate receptor. The Hippocampal formation study combines topics in areas such as Tianeptine, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Atrophy. As a part of the same scientific study, Bruce S. McEwen usually deals with the Allostatic load, concentrating on Cognition and frequently concerns with Mental health.

His most cited work include:

  • Protective and Damaging Effects of Stress Mediators (4843 citations)
  • Effects of stress throughout the lifespan on the brain, behaviour and cognition (3634 citations)
  • Stress, Adaptation, and Disease: Allostasis and Allostatic Load (2822 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience, Hippocampus and Receptor. His work on Internal medicine deals in particular with Hippocampal formation, Dentate gyrus, Central nervous system, Steroid hormone and Estrogen receptor. His study in Corticosterone, Hypothalamus, Glucocorticoid, Estrogen and Hormone is carried out as part of his studies in Endocrinology.

Prefrontal cortex, Chronic stress, Amygdala, Neuroplasticity and Allostatic load are the primary areas of interest in his Neuroscience study. Many of his studies on Chronic stress involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Allostasis. The concepts of his Allostatic load study are interwoven with issues in Developmental psychology and Disease.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (61.38%)
  • Endocrinology (59.21%)
  • Neuroscience (26.47%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (26.47%)
  • Internal medicine (61.38%)
  • Endocrinology (59.21%)

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

Bruce S. McEwen spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Hippocampus and Allostatic load. His Internal medicine research incorporates elements of Gene expression and Anxiety. His Endocrinology study often links to related topics such as Receptor.

His Hippocampus study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hippocampal formation, Glutamate receptor, Synapse and Cognitive decline. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Psychosocial and Allostasis. His Allostasis research includes themes of Developmental psychology, Adaptation and Clinical psychology.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Adverse childhood experiences, allostasis, allostatic load, and age-related disease (972 citations)
  • The stressed synapse: the impact of stress and glucocorticoids on glutamate transmission (805 citations)
  • Brain on stress: How the social environment gets under the skin (647 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Hippocampus. His work in Neuroscience covers topics such as Anxiety which are related to areas like Mood and Traumatic stress. The concepts of his Prefrontal cortex study are interwoven with issues in Aging brain and Amygdala.

His Endocrinology research incorporates themes from Estrogen receptor and Immunology. His research in Hippocampus intersects with topics in Dendritic spine, Hippocampal formation, Human brain, Cognitive decline and Synapse. His research on Stressor also deals with topics like

  • Allostatic load, Developmental psychology, Adaptation and Clinical psychology most often made with reference to Allostasis,
  • Life course approach that intertwine with fields like Working memory.
