Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Neuroscience
  • Genetics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neurogenesis, Neuroscience, Dentate gyrus, Hippocampal formation and Hippocampus. His Neurogenesis research includes elements of Progenitor cell, Stem cell, Bromodeoxyuridine, Doublecortin and Neuropoiesis. His Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Precursor cell and Neural stem cell.

His work in Dentate gyrus addresses issues such as Environmental enrichment, which are connected to fields such as Evolutionary biology. His research in Hippocampal formation intersects with topics in Long-term potentiation and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. His work deals with themes such as Central nervous system, Neuron and Anatomy, which intersect with Hippocampus.

His most cited work include:

  • Running increases cell proliferation and neurogenesis in the adult mouse dentate gyrus. (3224 citations)
  • Running increases cell proliferation and neurogenesis in the adult mouse dentate gyrus. (3224 citations)
  • More hippocampal neurons in adult mice living in an enriched environment (2991 citations)

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

Neurogenesis, Neuroscience, Hippocampal formation, Dentate gyrus and Cell biology are his primary areas of study. His research integrates issues of Precursor cell, Stem cell, Neural stem cell, Hippocampus and Environmental enrichment in his study of Neurogenesis. He interconnects Subgranular zone, Bromodeoxyuridine and Neuroepithelial cell in the investigation of issues within Neuroscience.

His Hippocampal formation study combines topics in areas such as Stimulus, Physical exercise and Immunology. His work on Granule cell as part of general Dentate gyrus study is frequently linked to Novelty, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. The study incorporates disciplines such as Neurosphere and Cell type in addition to Cell biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neurogenesis (113.41%)
  • Neuroscience (84.15%)
  • Hippocampal formation (82.32%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Neurogenesis (113.41%)
  • Hippocampal formation (82.32%)
  • Cell biology (48.78%)

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

Gerd Kempermann spends much of his time researching Neurogenesis, Hippocampal formation, Cell biology, Precursor cell and Neuroscience. His study in Neurogenesis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Dentate gyrus, Internal medicine, Hippocampus, LDL receptor and Neural stem cell. Gerd Kempermann interconnects Stimulation, Vestibular system, Galvanic vestibular stimulation and DNA methylation in the investigation of issues within Hippocampal formation.

His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Peptide array and In vivo. As part of one scientific family, Gerd Kempermann deals mainly with the area of Precursor cell, narrowing it down to issues related to the Neurosphere, and often Microcarrier. His work on Environmental enrichment, Contextual memory, Neocortex and Memory consolidation as part of general Neuroscience research is frequently linked to Spatial memory, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Whitepaper: Defining and investigating cognitive reserve, brain reserve, and brain maintenance (213 citations)
  • Environmental enrichment, new neurons and the neurobiology of individuality. (65 citations)
  • Increasing neurogenesis refines hippocampal activity rejuvenating navigational learning strategies and contextual memory throughout life. (27 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of study are Neurogenesis, Hippocampal formation, Cell biology, Dentate gyrus and Neuroscience. His work carried out in the field of Neurogenesis brings together such families of science as Internal medicine, Cholesterol, Lipoprotein and Neural stem cell. The Hippocampal formation study combines topics in areas such as LDL receptor, Familial hypercholesterolemia and Gene knockdown.

His Cell biology study incorporates themes from Platelet factor 4, Platelet, Platelet activation and Precursor cell. His Dentate gyrus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Downregulation and upregulation, Inositol, microRNA, Cognitive decline and Physical exercise. His study in the field of Stimulation, Galvanic vestibular stimulation and Vestibular system also crosses realms of Spatial analysis and Spatial memory.
