Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine
  • Endocrinology

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Dopamine, Nucleus accumbens and Ventral tegmental area. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Ethanol and Internal medicine. The concepts of his Endocrinology study are interwoven with issues in Receptor, Anxiolytic, 8-OH-DPAT, Neuropeptide Y receptor and Receptor antagonist.

His research in Dopamine intersects with topics in Serotonin, Pharmacology, Nicotine and Ghrelin. His research investigates the link between Nucleus accumbens and topics such as Mecamylamine that cross with problems in Hexamethonium, Methyllycaconitine, Acetylcholine and Nicotinic Antagonist. In his study, Acetylcholine receptor is inextricably linked to Nicotinic agonist, which falls within the broad field of Ventral tegmental area.

His most cited work include:

  • Centrally administered neuropeptide Y (NPY) produces anxiolytic-like effects in animal anxiety models. (344 citations)
  • Ghrelin administration into tegmental areas stimulates locomotor activity and increases extracellular concentration of dopamine in the nucleus accumbens. (318 citations)
  • Requirement of central ghrelin signaling for alcohol reward (298 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Dopamine, Pharmacology and Ethanol. Self-administration is closely connected to Alcohol in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Internal medicine. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Agonist and Monoamine neurotransmitter.

He interconnects Neurochemical and Nicotine in the investigation of issues within Dopamine. His Pharmacology research includes themes of Receptor, Antagonist, Biochemistry, Nitric oxide and Phencyclidine. His Ethanol research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase and Corticosterone.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (60.67%)
  • Endocrinology (59.41%)
  • Dopamine (36.82%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2006-2017)?

  • Internal medicine (60.67%)
  • Endocrinology (59.41%)
  • Ghrelin (14.64%)

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

Jörgen A. Engel spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Ghrelin, Dopamine and Pharmacology. Jörgen A. Engel has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Alcohol, Alcohol dependence and Ethanol. His research links Antagonist with Endocrinology.

Jörgen A. Engel combines subjects such as Orexigenic, Amphetamine, Appetite, Addiction and Nicotine with his study of Ghrelin. Dopamine is the subject of his research, which falls under Neuroscience. His Pharmacology study incorporates themes from Pimozide, Prepulse inhibition, Nitric oxide and Antipsychotic.

Between 2006 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • Ghrelin administration into tegmental areas stimulates locomotor activity and increases extracellular concentration of dopamine in the nucleus accumbens. (318 citations)
  • Requirement of central ghrelin signaling for alcohol reward (298 citations)
  • Ghrelin Increases Intake of Rewarding Food in Rodents (249 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine
  • Endocrinology

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Ghrelin, Dopamine and Ventral tegmental area. His studies link Taste with Internal medicine. His study explores the link between Ghrelin and topics such as Orexigenic that cross with problems in Incentive salience.

His Dopamine study is concerned with Neuroscience in general. His work on Dopaminergic as part of general Neuroscience study is frequently linked to Dopaminergic Cell, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His studies deal with areas such as Cholinergic, Antagonist, Nicotinic agonist and Pharmacology as well as Ventral tegmental area.
