Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience

Neuroscience, Addiction, Nucleus accumbens, Internal medicine and Endocrinology are his primary areas of study. His work deals with themes such as Transcription factor and CREB, which intersect with Neuroscience. His Addiction research includes themes of Striatum, Chromatin, Regulation of gene expression and Pharmacology, Drug.

His Nucleus accumbens research incorporates elements of Ventral striatum, Epigenetics of cocaine addiction, FOSB and Aversive Stimulus. His study ties his expertise on Protein kinase A together with the subject of Internal medicine. His Antidepressant research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hippocampus and Social defeat.

His most cited work include:

  • Chronic Antidepressant Treatment Increases Neurogenesis in Adult Rat Hippocampus (2643 citations)
  • Neurobiology of depression. (2491 citations)
  • NEURAL MECHANISMS OF ADDICTION: The Role of Reward-Related Learning and Memory (1984 citations)

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

Eric J. Nestler mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Nucleus accumbens, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Addiction. His Ventral tegmental area, Dopamine, Brain stimulation reward, Social defeat and Neuroplasticity study are his primary interests in Neuroscience. His Social defeat research integrates issues from Antidepressant, Prefrontal cortex and Chronic stress.

The Nucleus accumbens study combines topics in areas such as Striatum, Medium spiny neuron, Transcription factor, CREB and Pharmacology. His Endocrinology research includes elements of Protein kinase A and Opiate. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Epigenetics and Drug.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (50.12%)
  • Nucleus accumbens (31.50%)
  • Internal medicine (28.80%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (50.12%)
  • Nucleus accumbens (31.50%)
  • Social defeat (8.95%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Nucleus accumbens, Social defeat, Epigenetics and Prefrontal cortex. His study in Brain stimulation reward, Addiction, Dopamine, Major depressive disorder and Depression falls under the purview of Neuroscience. The subject of his Nucleus accumbens research is within the realm of Endocrinology.

His Social defeat study combines topics in areas such as Neurotrophic factors and Chronic stress. Eric J. Nestler has included themes like Chromatin, Histone and DNA methylation in his Epigenetics study. His work carried out in the field of Prefrontal cortex brings together such families of science as Regulator, Downregulation and upregulation and CREB.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Treatment resistant depression: A multi-scale, systems biology approach. (155 citations)
  • Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor controls neural and behavioral plasticity in response to cocaine. (121 citations)
  • The Molecular Basis of Drug Addiction: Linking Epigenetic to Synaptic and Circuit Mechanisms. (62 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • DNA

Eric J. Nestler mostly deals with Neuroscience, Nucleus accumbens, Social defeat, Addiction and Epigenetics. His study looks at the relationship between Neuroscience and topics such as Adaptation, which overlap with Posttraumatic stress. His studies in Nucleus accumbens integrate themes in fields like Gene expression profiling, Transcriptome, Optogenetics, Cell biology and Medium spiny neuron.

His Social defeat research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Phenotype, Neurotrophic factors, Ventral tegmental area and Chronic stress. The study incorporates disciplines such as Epigenesis, Drug and Brain function in addition to Addiction. In his study, Endocrinology is inextricably linked to Long non-coding RNA, which falls within the broad field of CREB.
