What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Neuron
  • Artificial intelligence

Neuroscience, Neocortex, Cerebral cortex, Anatomy and Pyramidal cell are his primary areas of study. Neuron, Parvalbumin, Dendritic spine, Temporal cortex and Chandelier cell are among the areas of Neuroscience where Javier DeFelipe concentrates his study. The concepts of his Neuron study are interwoven with issues in Somatosensory system, Juvenile rat and GABAergic.

The Neocortex study combines topics in areas such as Nitric oxide synthase, Neuroglia, Human brain, Neuropil and Synapse. His Cerebral cortex study also includes

  • Cortex which connect with Sensory system,
  • Calbindin which intersects with area such as Calcium-binding protein, Colocalization and Cell biology. His Anatomy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sex characteristics, Central nervous system and Visual cortex.

His most cited work include:

  • Petilla terminology: nomenclature of features of GABAergic interneurons of the cerebral cortex (1104 citations)
  • Reconstruction and Simulation of Neocortical Microcircuitry (782 citations)
  • Reconstruction and Simulation of Neocortical Microcircuitry (782 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Cerebral cortex, Neocortex, Dendritic spine and Hippocampal formation. His work on Neuroscience deals in particular with Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Pyramidal cell, Axon, Cortex and Synapse. His Cerebral cortex research incorporates themes from Glutamatergic, Anatomy, GABAergic, Neuropil and Soma.

His research integrates issues of Somatosensory system, Temporal cortex, Neuron, Cell biology and Parvalbumin in his study of Neocortex. His study in Dendritic spine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Neurogenesis, Lucifer yellow, Alzheimer's disease and Spine. His Hippocampal formation research incorporates elements of Tau protein, Hippocampus and Pathology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (98.17%)
  • Cerebral cortex (35.24%)
  • Neocortex (31.12%)

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

  • Neuroscience (98.17%)
  • Excitatory postsynaptic potential (20.14%)
  • Dendritic spine (38.22%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Dendritic spine, Hippocampal formation and Synapse. His Neuropil, Cortex, Human brain, Somatosensory system and Neocortex investigations are all subjects of Neuroscience research. His Excitatory postsynaptic potential course of study focuses on AMPA receptor and Temporal cortex.

His research in Dendritic spine intersects with topics in Cerebral cortex, Lucifer yellow and Spine. His research on Cerebral cortex often connects related topics like Pyramidal cell. The various areas that Javier DeFelipe examines in his Hippocampal formation study include Tau protein, Hippocampus and Cognitive decline.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Architecture of the Mouse Brain Synaptome (66 citations)
  • Human Cortical Pyramidal Neurons: From Spines to Spikes via Models. (42 citations)
  • A community-based transcriptomics classification and nomenclature of neocortical cell types (29 citations)
