Awards & Achievements

1997 - Member of the National Academy of Medicine (NAM)


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine
  • Parkinson's disease

His primary scientific interests are in Parkinson's disease, Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Substantia nigra and Electromyography. C. D. Marsden has researched Parkinson's disease in several fields, including Physical therapy, Transplantation and Degenerative disease. His Neuroscience study combines topics in areas such as Progressive supranuclear palsy and Audiology.

C. D. Marsden interconnects Endocrinology and Cardiology in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine. His Substantia nigra study also includes fields such as

  • Basal ganglia and related Parkinsonism,
  • Lewy body most often made with reference to Oxidative stress,
  • Biochemistry which is related to area like Pharmacology. His research integrates issues of Reflex, Stimulation and Anatomy, Muscle contraction in his study of Electromyography.

His most cited work include:

  • Mitochondrial complex I deficiency in Parkinson's disease. (1325 citations)
  • Interhemispheric inhibition of the human motor cortex. (1221 citations)
  • Basal Lipid Peroxidation in Substantia Nigra Is Increased in Parkinson's Disease (1182 citations)

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

C. D. Marsden focuses on Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience, Pharmacology and Parkinson's disease. His is involved in several facets of Neuroscience study, as is seen by his studies on Electromyography, Motor cortex, Stimulation, Reflex and Basal ganglia. The concepts of his Electromyography study are interwoven with issues in Anatomy and Spinal cord.

His studies deal with areas such as Haloperidol and Dopamine agonist as well as Pharmacology. His studies in Parkinson's disease integrate themes in fields like Central nervous system disease and Degenerative disease. While the research belongs to areas of Levodopa, he spends his time largely on the problem of Anesthesia, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Surgery.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (26.47%)
  • Endocrinology (23.60%)
  • Neuroscience (22.88%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1995-2012)?

  • Internal medicine (26.47%)
  • Endocrinology (23.60%)
  • Parkinson's disease (18.42%)

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

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Parkinson's disease, Surgery and Neurological disorder. His Parkinson's disease research incorporates themes from Basal ganglia and Central nervous system disease. His Surgery study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Anesthesia, Dyskinesia and Spinal cord.

His Neurological disorder research integrates issues from Dystonia, Electromyography, Neurology, Pediatrics and Myoclonus. His Dystonia study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Neuroscience. His research in Substantia nigra intersects with topics in Oxidative stress and Degenerative disease.

Between 1995 and 2012, his most popular works were:

  • Oxidative DNA damage in the parkinsonian brain: an apparent selective increase in 8-hydroxyguanine levels in substantia nigra. (678 citations)
  • What do the basal ganglia do (321 citations)
  • Frequency peaks of tremor, muscle vibration and electromyographic activity at 10 Hz, 20 Hz and 40 Hz during human finger muscle contraction may reflect rhythmicities of central neural firing. (266 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine
  • Disease

C. D. Marsden spends much of his time researching Neurological disorder, Surgery, Parkinson's disease, Dystonia and Anesthesia. His Neurological disorder research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cervical dystonia, Physical therapy, Neurology, Pediatrics and Myoclonus. His biological study deals with issues like Dyskinesia, which deal with fields such as Choreoathetosis.

His Parkinson's disease study incorporates themes from Central nervous system disease and Transplantation. His Anesthesia research includes themes of Sphincter, Electromyography, Intensive care unit and Brainstem. His research investigates the connection with Levodopa and areas like Globus pallidus which intersect with concerns in Motor cortex.
