What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Neuroscience

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Acetylcholine receptor, Nicotinic agonist, Neuroscience, Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor and Receptor. His work deals with themes such as Biophysics and Endocrinology, Cholinergic, which intersect with Acetylcholine receptor. His Nicotinic agonist study incorporates themes from Acetylcholine, Pharmacology and Nicotine.

His research integrates issues of Artificial neural network and Postsynaptic potential in his study of Neuroscience. The various areas that Jean-Pierre Changeux examines in his Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor study include Long-term potentiation, Ventral tegmental area, Protein subunit and GABAA receptor. Jean-Pierre Changeux interconnects Retina and Central nervous system in the investigation of issues within Receptor.

His most cited work include:

  • On the Nature of Allosteric Transitions: A Plausible Model (7181 citations)
  • Allosteric Proteins and Cellular Control Systems (1682 citations)
  • Conscious, preconscious, and subliminal processing: a testable taxonomy. (1340 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Acetylcholine receptor, Nicotinic agonist, Receptor, Biochemistry and Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor. His Acetylcholine receptor research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biophysics and Endocrinology, Acetylcholine, Cholinergic. His Biophysics research includes themes of Allosteric regulation and Ion channel.

His Nicotinic agonist research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Neuroscience, Nicotine and Pharmacology. His research investigates the link between Receptor and topics such as Cell biology that cross with problems in Neuromuscular junction. His Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Molecular biology and Protein subunit.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Acetylcholine receptor (42.23%)
  • Nicotinic agonist (28.06%)
  • Receptor (23.38%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2007-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (21.46%)
  • Nicotinic agonist (28.06%)
  • Allosteric regulation (14.58%)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Nicotinic agonist, Allosteric regulation, Ion channel and Acetylcholine receptor. The study incorporates disciplines such as Acetylcholine, Pharmacology and Nicotine in addition to Nicotinic agonist. His work carried out in the field of Allosteric regulation brings together such families of science as Biophysics, Conformational change, Stereochemistry and Signal transduction.

Jean-Pierre Changeux has included themes like Protein structure, Gating, Binding site and Transmembrane domain in his Ion channel study. His Acetylcholine receptor study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Endocrinology and Central nervous system. He works mostly in the field of Consciousness, limiting it down to concerns involving Cognitive science and, occasionally, Neuroimaging, Perception and Sensory system.

Between 2007 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Experimental and Theoretical Approaches to Conscious Processing (1259 citations)
  • Experimental and Theoretical Approaches to Conscious Processing (1259 citations)
  • X-ray structure of a pentameric ligand-gated ion channel in an apparently open conformation (587 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Jean-Pierre Changeux focuses on Allosteric regulation, Ion channel, Pharmacology, Nicotinic agonist and Neuroscience. His Allosteric regulation study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Receptor. He combines subjects such as CHRNA6, Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor, Nicotine, Membrane protein and Dorsal root ganglion with his study of Pharmacology.

His Nicotinic agonist research includes elements of Acetylcholine, Anatomy, Pathology, Acetylcholine receptor and Sociology of scientific knowledge. His Acetylcholine receptor research incorporates elements of Nicotine withdrawal, Smoking cessation, Kindling, Hyperalgesia and Cell biology. His Neuroscience research integrates issues from Schizophrenia and Neurotransmission.
