Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine
  • Enzyme

Her primary areas of study are Dopamine, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience and Raclopride. Her Dopamine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Methylphenidate, Addiction and Pharmacology. Her Methylphenidate research incorporates elements of Anesthesia and Thalamus.

She interconnects Dopaminergic, Nucleus accumbens, Substance abuse and Drug in the investigation of issues within Addiction. Her studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Pathology, Detoxification, In vivo and Cardiology. Her Raclopride research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Distribution Volume, Neurotransmitter and Radioligand.

Her most cited work include:

  • Brain dopamine and obesity. (1432 citations)
  • Distribution Volume Ratios without Blood Sampling from Graphical Analysis of PET Data (1245 citations)
  • Graphical analysis of reversible radioligand binding from time-activity measurements applied to [N-11C-methyl]-(-)-cocaine PET studies in human subjects (1192 citations)

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

Joanna S. Fowler mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Dopamine, Pharmacology and Human brain. Her research investigates the link between Internal medicine and topics such as Positron emission tomography that cross with problems in Brain positron emission tomography. Her study ties her expertise on Receptor together with the subject of Endocrinology.

She works mostly in the field of Dopamine, limiting it down to topics relating to Methylphenidate and, in certain cases, Stimulant. Her Pharmacology research integrates issues from Dopamine transporter, In vivo and Monoamine oxidase. Her research in Striatum intersects with topics in Methamphetamine and Nucleus accumbens.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (34.06%)
  • Endocrinology (32.61%)
  • Dopamine (27.07%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2009-2020)?

  • Internal medicine (34.06%)
  • Endocrinology (32.61%)
  • Dopamine (27.07%)

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

Joanna S. Fowler mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Dopamine, Pharmacology and Human brain. Her work in the fields of Carbohydrate metabolism, Baboon and Stimulation overlaps with other areas such as Vorozole. She does research in Endocrinology, focusing on Dopaminergic specifically.

Her Dopamine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Methylphenidate, Addiction and Putamen. The Pharmacology study combines topics in areas such as Positron emission tomography, In vivo and Monoamine oxidase. Her Human brain study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biochemistry and Monoamine oxidase A.

Between 2009 and 2020, her most popular works were:

  • Addiction: Beyond dopamine reward circuitry (569 citations)
  • Addiction circuitry in the human brain. (367 citations)
  • Food and drug reward: overlapping circuits in human obesity and addiction. (342 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme
  • Dopamine

Her primary scientific interests are in Dopamine, Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Methylphenidate and Raclopride. Her Dopamine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Addiction and Pharmacology. Her study in Endocrinology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Temporal cortex and Human brain.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Placebo, Abstinence and Stimulant in addition to Methylphenidate. The various areas that Joanna S. Fowler examines in her Raclopride study include Ventral striatum and Dopamine receptor D3. She usually deals with Striatum and limits it to topics linked to Anesthesia and Methamphetamine.
