Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine
  • Neurotransmitter

Luigi F. Agnati mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Receptor, Neuroscience and Dopamine. His Internal medicine study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as In vitro. His Receptor research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Adenosine and Cell biology.

His Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Neurotransmitter receptor, Postsynaptic potential and Metabotropic receptor. His work deals with themes such as Cholecystokinin, Monoamine neurotransmitter and Rat brain, which intersect with Dopamine. Luigi F. Agnati has researched Dopamine receptor D2 in several fields, including Competitive antagonist, Adenosine A2A receptor, Striatum and Pharmacology.

His most cited work include:

  • Mapping of glucocorticoid receptor immunoreactive neurons in the rat tel- and diencephalon using a monoclonal antibody against rat liver glucocorticoid receptor. (495 citations)
  • Intercellular communication in the brain: wiring versus volume transmission. (470 citations)
  • Coaggregation, cointernalization, and codesensitization of adenosine A2A receptors and dopamine D2 receptors (428 citations)

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

Luigi F. Agnati mainly investigates Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Receptor, Neuroscience and Dopamine. His biological study deals with issues like Neuropeptide Y receptor, which deal with fields such as Solitary nucleus and Medulla oblongata. His Receptor research includes elements of Binding site and Cell biology.

His work in the fields of Central nervous system, Neuroplasticity and Neuroanatomy overlaps with other areas such as Transmission. The Dopamine study combines topics in areas such as Monoamine neurotransmitter and Neurotransmitter. His research integrates issues of Biophysics, Adenosine A2A receptor, Adenosine and Pharmacology in his study of Dopamine receptor D2.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (46.91%)
  • Endocrinology (46.07%)
  • Receptor (32.87%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2019)?

  • Neuroscience (30.34%)
  • Receptor (32.87%)
  • Allosteric regulation (12.36%)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Receptor, Allosteric regulation, G protein-coupled receptor and Heteroreceptor. He has included themes like Cell signaling and Neurotransmission in his Neuroscience study. The Dopamine receptor D2 research Luigi F. Agnati does as part of his general Receptor study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Drug development, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

His G protein-coupled receptor study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biophysics and Function. Luigi F. Agnati interconnects Endocrinology and Dopamine in the investigation of issues within Agonist. His Endocrinology study incorporates themes from Neuron and Autoreceptor.

Between 2010 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Understanding the Functional Plasticity in Neural Networks of the Basal Ganglia in Cocaine Use Disorder: A Role for Allosteric Receptor-Receptor Interactions in A2A-D2 Heteroreceptor Complexes. (134 citations)
  • Fibroblast growth factor receptor 1- 5-hydroxytryptamine 1A heteroreceptor complexes and their enhancement of hippocampal plasticity. (93 citations)
  • The G Protein-Coupled Receptor Heterodimer Network (GPCR-HetNet) and Its Hub Components (84 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Neurotransmitter
  • Dopamine

G protein-coupled receptor, Heteroreceptor, Allosteric regulation, Receptor and Dopamine receptor D2 are his primary areas of study. His Receptor research includes elements of Striatum, Adenosine and Neuroscience. His Neuroscience research includes themes of Glutamate receptor and Cell signaling.

His Dopamine receptor D2 study contributes to a more complete understanding of Dopamine. As a member of one scientific family, Luigi F. Agnati mostly works in the field of Cell biology, focusing on Proximity ligation assay and, on occasion, Fibroblast growth factor receptor, Endocrinology and 5-HT receptor. His specific area of interest is Endocrinology, where Luigi F. Agnati studies Midbrain.
