Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Dopamine
  • Neurotransmitter

Her primary areas of investigation include Nucleus accumbens, Glutamate receptor, Neuroscience, Neurochemical and Internal medicine. Her Nucleus accumbens study introduces a deeper knowledge of Dopamine. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Neuroplasticity, Prefrontal cortex and Pharmacology.

Her studies deal with areas such as NMDA receptor, Receptor, Metabotropic glutamate receptor 5, Metabotropic glutamate receptor and Signal transduction as well as Neuroscience. In her study, Epigenetics of cocaine addiction is inextricably linked to Addiction, which falls within the broad field of Metabotropic glutamate receptor. Her study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ethanol and Endocrinology.

Her most cited work include:

  • Homer Proteins Regulate Sensitivity to Cocaine (198 citations)
  • Behavioral and neurochemical phenotyping of Homer1 mutant mice: Possible relevance to schizophrenia (151 citations)
  • Homer proteins: implications for neuropsychiatric disorders. (143 citations)

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

Her main research concerns Neuroscience, Nucleus accumbens, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Pharmacology. Her Neuroscience study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Glutamate receptor, Metabotropic glutamate receptor 5, NMDA receptor and Metabotropic glutamate receptor. Her research on Nucleus accumbens concerns the broader Dopamine.

Her Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Ethanol, Anesthesia and Binge drinking. Her work deals with themes such as Alcohol abuse, Biochemistry and Mutant, which intersect with Endocrinology. Her study in the field of Stimulant is also linked to topics like Ibogaine.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (40.31%)
  • Nucleus accumbens (38.76%)
  • Internal medicine (40.31%)

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

  • Methamphetamine (17.83%)
  • Conditioned place preference (9.30%)
  • Internal medicine (40.31%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Methamphetamine, Conditioned place preference, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Pharmacology. Karen K. Szumlinski interconnects Valence, Neuroscience, Addiction, Sensitization and C57bl 6j in the investigation of issues within Methamphetamine. Her Neuroscience study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Metabotropic glutamate receptor, Kinase, RHEB and Anxiolytic.

In general Internal medicine, her work in Dopamine and Self-administration is often linked to Reinforcement linking many areas of study. Her research on Dopamine often connects related areas such as Neurochemical. Her work on Drug withdrawal as part of general Pharmacology research is often related to Repurposing, thus linking different fields of science.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • A Mutation in Hnrnph1 That Decreases Methamphetamine-Induced Reinforcement, Reward, and Dopamine Release and Increases Synaptosomal hnRNP H and Mitochondrial Proteins. (15 citations)
  • Increased Alcohol-Drinking Induced by Manipulations of mGlu5 Phosphorylation within the Bed Nucleus of the Stria Terminalis. (13 citations)
  • PI3K activation within ventromedial prefrontal cortex regulates the expression of drug-seeking in two rodent species. (10 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Dopamine
  • DNA

Karen K. Szumlinski spends much of her time researching Conditioned place preference, Addiction vulnerability, Quantitative trait locus, Genetics and Glutamate receptor. Conditioned place preference is a subfield of Pharmacology that Karen K. Szumlinski studies. Her Glutamate receptor research incorporates elements of Self-administration, Nucleus accumbens, Monoamine neurotransmitter and Extinction, Neuroscience.

Karen K. Szumlinski works mostly in the field of Gene knockdown, limiting it down to concerns involving Methamphetamine and, occasionally, Dopaminergic, Amphetamine, Dopamine, Neurochemical and Mitochondrion. Her Dopaminergic research also covers Internal medicine and Endocrinology studies. Her Endocrinology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of MAPK/ERK pathway and Binge drinking.
