Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Central nervous system

Karim Fouad mostly deals with Spinal cord, Neuroscience, Spinal cord injury, Anatomy and Central nervous system. Karim Fouad has researched Spinal cord in several fields, including Lesion, Central nervous system disease, Forelimb, Motor system and Pyramidal tracts. His research in Motor system intersects with topics in Tail flick test, Nociception, Internal medicine, Open field and Antibody.

His Neuroscience research includes elements of Receptor and 5-HT receptor. His Spinal cord injury study incorporates themes from Anesthesia, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Spasticity, Neuroplasticity and Collateral sprouting. His Anatomy research integrates issues from Tibial nerve, Electromyography, Sensory system and Reflex.

His most cited work include:

  • Combining Schwann Cell Bridges and Olfactory-Ensheathing Glia Grafts with Chondroitinase Promotes Locomotor Recovery after Complete Transection of the Spinal Cord (407 citations)
  • Locomotor Recovery in Spinal Cord-Injured Rats Treated with an Antibody Neutralizing the Myelin-Associated Neurite Growth Inhibitor Nogo-A (322 citations)
  • Locomotor Recovery in Spinal Cord-Injured Rats Treated with an Antibody Neutralizing the Myelin-Associated Neurite Growth Inhibitor Nogo-A (322 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Spinal cord injury, Neuroscience, Spinal cord, Anatomy and Central nervous system. His Spinal cord injury study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Rehabilitation, Lesion, Anesthesia, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Forelimb. His Neuroscience study which covers Spasticity that intersects with Neurotrophic factors and Hyperreflexia.

Karim Fouad interconnects Endocrinology, Electrophysiology, Central nervous system disease, Pathology and Myelin in the investigation of issues within Spinal cord. His Anatomy study combines topics in areas such as Motor cortex and Electromyography. His Central nervous system study combines topics in areas such as Neuron and Nervous system.

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

  • Spinal cord injury (59.17%)
  • Neuroscience (55.00%)
  • Spinal cord (49.17%)

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

His main research concerns Spinal cord injury, Neuroscience, Spinal cord, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Forelimb. His research integrates issues of Rehabilitation, Lesion, Central nervous system, Stimulation and Neuroplasticity in his study of Spinal cord injury. His Neuroplasticity research incorporates elements of Internal medicine, Motor control and Collateral sprouting.

Karim Fouad has included themes like Receptor and Spasticity in his Neuroscience study. The various areas that Karim Fouad examines in his Spinal cord study include Schwann cell, Pathology, GABAA receptor, GABAergic and Depolarization. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation study incorporates themes from Behavioral testing and Data sharing.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Eliciting inflammation enables successful rehabilitative training in chronic spinal cord injury. (33 citations)
  • Fecal transplant prevents gut dysbiosis and anxiety-like behaviour after spinal cord injury in rats. (20 citations)
  • Locomotor-related V3 interneurons initiate and coordinate muscles spasms after spinal cord injury. (18 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Central nervous system
  • Neuron

Karim Fouad focuses on Spinal cord injury, Spinal cord, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Neuroscience and Spasticity. His study in Spinal cord injury is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Microbiome and Data sharing. His Spinal cord research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Dysbiosis, Animal studies, Mood disorders, Depression and Physiology.

Karim Fouad combines subjects such as Animal model, Central nervous system and Motor training with his study of Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His Neuroscience research focuses on Receptor and how it relates to Depolarization. His work deals with themes such as Nociception, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Spinal transection, Optogenetics and muscle spasm, which intersect with Spasticity.
