Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Law
  • Gene

Floyd E. Bloom mainly investigates Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience, Locus coeruleus and Anatomy. His study in -Naloxone, Dopamine, Hippocampus, Secretion and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential is done as part of Internal medicine. His research investigates the connection between Endocrinology and topics such as Enkephalin that intersect with problems in Diencephalon and Radioimmunoassay.

His research related to Central nervous system, Cerebral cortex, Hippocampal formation, Somatosensory system and Catecholamine might be considered part of Neuroscience. Floyd E. Bloom usually deals with Locus coeruleus and limits it to topics linked to Arousal and Tonic. The study incorporates disciplines such as Tegmentum, Stria terminalis, In vivo and Dorsal raphe nucleus in addition to Anatomy.

His most cited work include:

  • The hypocretins: Hypothalamus-specific peptides with neuroexcitatory activity (3049 citations)
  • The Biochemical Basis of Neuropharmacology (1881 citations)
  • Cellular and molecular mechanisms of drug dependence. (1880 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience, Central nervous system and Hypothalamus. His Norepinephrine, Opioid peptide, Neurotransmitter, Dopamine and Acetylcholine investigations are all subjects of Internal medicine research. His Endocrinology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Neuropeptide and Enkephalin.

Locus coeruleus, Hippocampus, Norepinephrine, Cerebral cortex and Electrophysiology are the primary areas of interest in his Neuroscience study. As part of his studies on Vasopressin, Floyd E. Bloom frequently links adjacent subjects like Arginine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (30.80%)
  • Endocrinology (30.50%)
  • Neuroscience (28.95%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1994-2016)?

  • Neuroscience (28.95%)
  • Endocrinology (30.50%)
  • Internal medicine (30.80%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Central nervous system and Immunology. His Alzheimer's disease research extends to Neuroscience, which is thematically connected. His research on Alzheimer's disease also deals with topics like

  • Human brain which connect with Nervous system,
  • Dentate gyrus that connect with fields like Pathology.

Floyd E. Bloom frequently studies issues relating to Cytokine and Endocrinology. The Immunology study combines topics in areas such as Dementia and Virology. His work carried out in the field of Hippocampal formation brings together such families of science as Amyloid precursor protein and Amyloid.

Between 1994 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • The hypocretins: Hypothalamus-specific peptides with neuroexcitatory activity (3049 citations)
  • Neuroscience of Addiction (913 citations)
  • Early-onset behavioral and synaptic deficits in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease (552 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Law
  • Gene

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Central nervous system, Hippocampus, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His Central nervous system research includes themes of Encephalopathy, Immunology, Lymphocytic choriomeningitis, Molecular biology and Spinal cord. His Hippocampus study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Chlordiazepoxide, Sensory system, Anxiolytic and Ratón.

Hypothalamus, Vasopressin, Glutamate receptor, Nitric oxide synthase and Hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis are among the areas of Internal medicine where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. Floyd E. Bloom interconnects Corticosterone and Amygdala in the investigation of issues within Hypothalamus. His studies in Endocrinology integrate themes in fields like Phospholipase A2, Alpha and Arachidonic acid.
