What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Anatomy, Hypothalamus, Nucleus and Stria terminalis. His Anatomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Nucleus accumbens, Medial forebrain bundle, Substantia innominata and Thalamus. His Hypothalamus research incorporates themes from Medulla and Spinal cord.

His Nucleus study combines topics in areas such as Subfornical organ, Internal medicine, Lateral hypothalamus and Endocrinology. The various areas that Larry W. Swanson examines in his Endocrinology study include Receptor and In situ hybridization. His Stria terminalis research includes themes of Anteroventral periventricular nucleus, Serotonergic cell groups and Ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus.

His most cited work include:

  • Production of a novel neuropeptide encoded by the calcitonin gene via tissue-specific RNA processing (2044 citations)
  • Distribution of androgen and estrogen receptor mRNA-containing cells in the rat brain: an in situ hybridization study. (1864 citations)
  • Brain Maps: Structure of the Rat Brain (1862 citations)

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

Larry W. Swanson mainly investigates Neuroscience, Anatomy, Hypothalamus, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. All of his Neuroscience and Stria terminalis, Hippocampal formation, Amygdala, Central nervous system and Basal ganglia investigations are sub-components of the entire Neuroscience study. His Hippocampal formation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cerebral cortex and Hippocampus.

His work investigates the relationship between Anatomy and topics such as Substantia innominata that intersect with problems in Nucleus accumbens. His work deals with themes such as Nucleus and Spinal cord, which intersect with Hypothalamus. The concepts of his Endocrinology study are interwoven with issues in Neuropeptide and Immunohistochemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (53.20%)
  • Anatomy (29.07%)
  • Hypothalamus (30.52%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2006-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (53.20%)
  • Nervous system (5.81%)
  • Hypothalamus (30.52%)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Nervous system, Hypothalamus, Connectomics and Cerebral cortex. His study connects Golgi apparatus and Neuroscience. His Nervous system research includes elements of Tectum, Ventral tegmental area, Tegmentum, Vector graphics and Brain mapping.

His Hypothalamus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Periaqueductal gray and Nucleus. His research investigates the connection with Nucleus and areas like Anatomy which intersect with concerns in Physiology and Lateral hypothalamus. His Cerebral cortex study also includes

  • Cortex and related Entorhinal cortex, Insular cortex and Parasubiculum,
  • Motor system that connect with fields like Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Reticular connective tissue, Stria terminalis and Midbrain.

Between 2006 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Spatial Organization of Direct Hippocampal Field CA1 Axonal Projections To the Rest of the Cerebral Cortex (377 citations)
  • Genomic-anatomic evidence for distinct functional domains in hippocampal field CA1 (229 citations)
  • A Proposal for a Coordinated Effort for the Determination of Brainwide Neuroanatomical Connectivity in Model Organisms at a Mesoscopic Scale (219 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine

Larry W. Swanson mostly deals with Neuroscience, Nervous system, Hypothalamus, Artificial intelligence and Communication. Sensory system, Cerebral cortex, Hippocampal formation, Neuron and Motor neuron are the subjects of his Neuroscience studies. The Cerebral cortex study which covers Cortex that intersects with Entorhinal cortex, Anatomy, Subiculum, Thalamus and Parasubiculum.

Larry W. Swanson focuses mostly in the field of Hippocampal formation, narrowing it down to matters related to Brain mapping and, in some cases, Rat brain. His Nervous system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Fornix and Cerebrum. Larry W. Swanson has researched Hypothalamus in several fields, including Periaqueductal gray, Nucleus, Posterior pituitary and Neurotransmitter.
