Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Central nervous system

Clifford B. Saper mainly investigates Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Anatomy and Hypothalamus. His study in Thalamus, Cerebral cortex, Wakefulness, Circadian rhythm and Suprachiasmatic nucleus is carried out as part of his Neuroscience studies. His work in Internal medicine tackles topics such as In situ hybridization which are related to areas like Cerebellum.

In the field of Endocrinology, his study on GABAergic, Tyrosine hydroxylase and Dorsal motor nucleus overlaps with subjects such as Cart and Central melanocortin system. The various areas that Clifford B. Saper examines in his Anatomy study include Nucleus ambiguus, Central nucleus of the amygdala and Stria terminalis. His Hypothalamus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cocaine and amphetamine regulated transcript, Medial forebrain bundle, Central nervous system and Neuron.

His most cited work include:

  • Narcolepsy in orexin knockout mice: Molecular genetics of sleep regulation (2591 citations)
  • Hypothalamic regulation of sleep and circadian rhythms (1866 citations)
  • Differential expression of orexin receptors 1 and 2 in the rat brain. (1285 citations)

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

Clifford B. Saper focuses on Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Hypothalamus and Anatomy. His is involved in several facets of Neuroscience study, as is seen by his studies on Cerebral cortex, Circadian rhythm, Sleep in non-human animals, Wakefulness and Thalamus. Clifford B. Saper does research in Internal medicine, focusing on Prostaglandin E2 specifically.

In his research, Narcolepsy is intimately related to Orexin, which falls under the overarching field of Endocrinology. His Hypothalamus study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Tuberomammillary nucleus, Nucleus, Neuron and Median preoptic nucleus. His Anatomy study incorporates themes from Central nucleus of the amygdala, Insular cortex and Spinal cord.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (57.11%)
  • Internal medicine (23.57%)
  • Endocrinology (23.14%)

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

  • Neuroscience (57.11%)
  • Hypothalamus (21.66%)
  • Optogenetics (3.61%)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Hypothalamus, Optogenetics, Sleep in non-human animals and Arousal. His research on Neuroscience often connects related areas such as Glutamatergic. His study in Nucleus extends to Hypothalamus with its themes.

His Arousal research incorporates elements of Cognitive psychology and Parabrachial Nucleus. His Lateral hypothalamus study focuses on Endocrinology and Internal medicine. The study incorporates disciplines such as Hypothermia and Non-rapid eye movement sleep in addition to Endocrinology.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Central Autonomic System (257 citations)
  • The GABAergic parafacial zone is a medullary slow wave sleep-promoting center (181 citations)
  • Rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder: Devising controlled active treatment studies for symptomatic and neuroprotective therapy-a consensus statement from the International Rapid Eye Movement Sleep Behavior Disorder Study Group (146 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Central nervous system

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Hypothalamus, Optogenetics, Wakefulness and Internal medicine. His work deals with themes such as Glutamate receptor and Glutamatergic, which intersect with Neuroscience. His research in Hypothalamus intersects with topics in Thermogenesis, Nucleus, Reflex and Circadian rhythm.

His Optogenetics research also works with subjects such as

  • Biological neural network together with Aggression, Circadian clock, Sleep apnea, Lateral parabrachial nucleus and Calcitonin gene-related peptide,
  • Postsynaptic potential together with Neurotransmitter Agents, Slice preparation, Neurotransmission, Neuropeptide and Muscarinic acetylcholine receptor. His Endocrinology research extends to the thematically linked field of Internal medicine. As a part of the same scientific study, Clifford B. Saper usually deals with the Lateral hypothalamus, concentrating on Non-rapid eye movement sleep and frequently concerns with Forebrain, Cerebral cortex, Parabrachial Nucleus, Melanin-concentrating hormone and Basal forebrain.
