1988 - Metlife Foundation Award for Medical Research in Alzheimer's Disease

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme

Neuroscience, Alzheimer's disease, Hippocampus, Hippocampal formation and Internal medicine are his primary areas of study. His Neuroscience research includes themes of Glutamate receptor, Neurotrophic factors, Neurodegeneration and Cell biology. His Alzheimer's disease research integrates issues from Neurotoxicity, In vitro and Amyloid.

His Hippocampus study incorporates themes from Cerebral cortex and Nerve growth factor. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor and Neuron is closely connected to Endocrinology in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Internal medicine. His work carried out in the field of Pathology brings together such families of science as Entorhinal cortex and Microglia.

His most cited work include:

  • Common Structure of Soluble Amyloid Oligomers Implies Common Mechanism of Pathogenesis (3365 citations)
  • A Controlled Trial of Selegiline, Alpha-Tocopherol, or Both as Treatment for Alzheimer's Disease (2070 citations)
  • The Excitatory Amino Acid Receptors: Their Classes, Pharmacology, and Distinct Properties in the Function of the Central Nervous System (2011 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Hippocampal formation and Hippocampus. His study in Neuroscience is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Alzheimer's disease, Lesion and Glutamate receptor. His Endocrinology study combines topics in areas such as Brain-derived neurotrophic factor and Neurotrophic factors.

His studies deal with areas such as Kainic acid and Cell biology as well as Hippocampal formation. His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Apoptosis, Biochemistry and Programmed cell death. As part of his studies on Hippocampus, he frequently links adjacent subjects like Pathology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (34.10%)
  • Internal medicine (20.28%)
  • Endocrinology (19.01%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2003-2020)?

  • Neuroscience (34.10%)
  • Internal medicine (20.28%)
  • Alzheimer's disease (13.13%)

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

Carl W. Cotman spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Alzheimer's disease, Endocrinology and Cognition. His research in Hippocampus and Hippocampal formation are components of Neuroscience. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Lipoic acid and Immune system.

The concepts of his Alzheimer's disease study are interwoven with issues in Genetically modified mouse, Neurodegeneration and Amyloid. His studies deal with areas such as Temporal cortex and Immunology as well as Endocrinology. His Cognition research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Psychological intervention, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Developmental psychology, Disease and Cognitive decline.

Between 2003 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Exercise builds brain health: key roles of growth factor cascades and inflammation (1415 citations)
  • Common variants at MS4A4/MS4A6E , CD2AP , CD33 and EPHA1 are associated with late-onset Alzheimer's disease (1385 citations)
  • A microfluidic culture platform for CNS axonal injury, regeneration and transport (810 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Alzheimer's disease, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Cognitive decline. His Neuroscience research incorporates themes from Brain-derived neurotrophic factor and Neurotrophic factors. His Alzheimer's disease study is concerned with the larger field of Pathology.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Mutation, Heteroplasmy and Somatic cell. His Endocrinology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Temporal cortex and Biochemistry. His research integrates issues of Embryonic stem cell and Anatomy in his study of Hippocampal formation.
