Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Neurotransmitter
  • Neuron

Ege T. Kavalali focuses on Neurotransmission, Neuroscience, Cell biology, Synaptic plasticity and Neurotransmitter. Her Neurotransmission research incorporates themes from Exocytosis, Biophysics, Hippocampal formation, Molecular biology and Synaptic vesicle. Her research in Neuroscience intersects with topics in NMDA receptor, Long-term potentiation and Receptor antagonist.

Ege T. Kavalali interconnects Biochemistry, Postsynaptic potential and Muscle contraction in the investigation of issues within Cell biology. Her Synaptic plasticity research includes elements of Epigenetics in learning and memory and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. The study incorporates disciplines such as Synapsin and Neuroligin in addition to Neurotransmitter.

Her most cited work include:

  • NMDA receptor blockade at rest triggers rapid behavioural antidepressant responses (1160 citations)
  • SynCAM, a Synaptic Adhesion Molecule That Drives Synapse Assembly (670 citations)
  • SNARE function analyzed in synaptobrevin/VAMP knockout mice (521 citations)

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

Ege T. Kavalali mainly investigates Neuroscience, Neurotransmission, Synaptic vesicle, Cell biology and Synaptic plasticity. Her studies deal with areas such as NMDA receptor and Long-term potentiation as well as Neuroscience. Her work carried out in the field of Neurotransmission brings together such families of science as Postsynaptic potential, Neurotransmitter, Glutamate receptor, Biophysics and Excitatory postsynaptic potential.

Her Synaptic vesicle study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Exocytosis and Endocytosis. Her Cell biology research integrates issues from SNAP25, Synapsin, Synaptobrevin and Kiss-and-run fusion. Her research investigates the connection between Synaptic plasticity and topics such as MECP2 that intersect with issues in DNA methylation.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (56.41%)
  • Neurotransmission (56.41%)
  • Synaptic vesicle (38.46%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Neurotransmission (56.41%)
  • Neuroscience (56.41%)
  • Cell biology (37.82%)

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

Ege T. Kavalali mostly deals with Neurotransmission, Neuroscience, Cell biology, Synaptic vesicle and Neurotransmitter. The Neurotransmission study combines topics in areas such as Glutamate receptor, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Nervous system and Long-term potentiation. Ege T. Kavalali combines subjects such as Synaptic plasticity, Postsynaptic potential, NMDA receptor, Homeostatic plasticity and Tropomyosin receptor kinase B with her study of Neuroscience.

The concepts of her Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Synaptic vesicle cycle, Vesicle fusion and Synaptobrevin. Her Synaptic vesicle research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biophysics and Endocytosis. She works mostly in the field of Neurotransmitter, limiting it down to concerns involving Depolarization and, occasionally, Membrane potential, Homeostasis and Biochemistry.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • A peptide encoded by a transcript annotated as long noncoding RNA enhances SERCA activity in muscle (393 citations)
  • Effects of a ketamine metabolite on synaptic NMDAR function (91 citations)
  • Synaptotagmin-1- and Synaptotagmin-7-Dependent Fusion Mechanisms Target Synaptic Vesicles to Kinetically Distinct Endocytic Pathways (54 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Neurotransmitter
  • Neuron

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Neurotransmission, Synaptic vesicle, Cell biology and NMDA receptor. As a part of the same scientific study, she usually deals with the Neuroscience, concentrating on Homeostatic plasticity and frequently concerns with Cognition, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Brain-derived neurotrophic factor. In her study, Tropomyosin receptor kinase B and Long-term potentiation is inextricably linked to Postsynaptic potential, which falls within the broad field of Neurotransmission.

Ege T. Kavalali focuses mostly in the field of Synaptic vesicle, narrowing it down to matters related to Neurotransmitter and, in some cases, Temporal coupling, Biophysics and Neuron. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including RNA and Biochemistry. Her work investigates the relationship between NMDA receptor and topics such as Glutamate receptor that intersect with problems in Anatomy and Synapse.
