Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine

Gary Aston-Jones mostly deals with Neuroscience, Locus coeruleus, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Arousal. Gary Aston-Jones performs multidisciplinary study on Neuroscience and Chemistry in his works. His Locus coeruleus study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Stimulation, Tonic and Norepinephrine.

His Arousal research focuses on Sensory system and how it connects with Somatosensory system and Postsynaptic potential. Gary Aston-Jones focuses mostly in the field of Central nervous system, narrowing it down to topics relating to Locus Ceruleus and, in certain cases, Norepinephrine metabolism. His studies in Orexin integrate themes in fields like Function and Conditioned place preference.

His most cited work include:

  • An Integrative Theory of Locus Coeruleus-Norepinephrine Function: Adaptive Gain and Optimal Performance. (2520 citations)
  • Nucleus locus ceruleus: new evidence of anatomical and physiological specificity (1598 citations)
  • Activity of norepinephrine-containing locus coeruleus neurons in behaving rats anticipates fluctuations in the sleep-waking cycle (1535 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Locus coeruleus, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Orexin. His Neuroscience study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Anatomy. His research integrates issues of Stimulation, Norepinephrine and Tonic in his study of Locus coeruleus.

Gary Aston-Jones combines subjects such as Receptor antagonist, Addiction, Pharmacology and Lateral hypothalamus with his study of Orexin. His Arousal research integrates issues from Wakefulness and Circadian rhythm. His study in Ventral tegmental area is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Stria terminalis and Neuron.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (61.68%)
  • Locus coeruleus (40.15%)
  • Internal medicine (28.83%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Orexin (25.91%)
  • Neuroscience (61.68%)
  • Addiction (22.26%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Orexin, Neuroscience, Addiction, Pharmacology and Receptor antagonist. His Orexin research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Arousal, Lateral hypothalamus and Endocrinology. Locus coeruleus, Dopamine, Amygdala, Hypothalamus and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential are among the areas of Neuroscience where Gary Aston-Jones concentrates his study.

His Locus coeruleus research incorporates elements of Tonic, Norepinephrine, Adaptive functioning and Brainstem. His Addiction research incorporates themes from Endophenotype, Self-administration, Fentanyl, Anxiety and Abstinence. The Pharmacology study combines topics in areas such as Orexin receptor, Antagonist, Opioid and Serotonin.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • CNO Evil? Considerations for the Use of DREADDs in Behavioral Neuroscience. (80 citations)
  • Increased Number and Activity of a Lateral Subpopulation of Hypothalamic Orexin/Hypocretin Neurons Underlies the Expression of an Addicted State in Rats (61 citations)
  • Phasic locus coeruleus activity regulates cortical encoding of salience information (56 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuron

Gary Aston-Jones mostly deals with Neuroscience, Orexin, Addiction, Self-administration and Pharmacology. His work in Locus coeruleus, Dopamine, Optogenetics, Non-rapid eye movement sleep and Memory consolidation are all subfields of Neuroscience research. In Locus coeruleus, he works on issues like Tonic, which are connected to Task switching, Adaptive functioning and Developmental psychology.

His Orexin research includes themes of Hypothalamus, Lateral hypothalamus and Abstinence. His Lateral hypothalamus course of study focuses on Alcohol abuse and Arousal. The various areas that Gary Aston-Jones examines in his Pharmacology study include Antagonist and Opioid.
