Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Dopamine
  • Neurotransmitter
  • Gene

Her primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Ventral tegmental area, Dopamine, Glutamatergic and Dopaminergic. Her Neuroscience research focuses on subjects like Glutamate receptor, which are linked to Habenula. Her Ventral tegmental area research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Substantia nigra, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Neurotransmission, Neuron and Biological neural network.

The various areas that she examines in her Dopaminergic study include Axon and Anatomy. Marisela Morales works mostly in the field of GABAergic, limiting it down to topics relating to Cholinergic neuron and, in certain cases, Dopamine receptor D1 and Dopamine receptor. Her research in Nucleus accumbens tackles topics such as Reward system which are related to areas like Striatum, Addiction, Dopamine receptor D2, Brain stimulation reward and Neuroplasticity.

Her most cited work include:

  • The Brain on Drugs: From Reward to Addiction. (589 citations)
  • Ventral tegmental area: cellular heterogeneity, connectivity and behaviour. (421 citations)
  • Pedunculopontine and laterodorsal tegmental nuclei contain distinct populations of cholinergic, glutamatergic and GABAergic neurons in the rat (349 citations)

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

Her primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Ventral tegmental area, Dopamine, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Glutamate receptor and Glutamatergic. Her Ventral tegmental area study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Substantia nigra, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Neurotransmission and Neuron.

Her Dopamine research includes elements of Electrophysiology and Midbrain. The Internal medicine study which covers In situ hybridization that intersects with Protein subunit, Nucleus, Molecular biology and Dentate gyrus. She interconnects Neuropeptide and Agonist in the investigation of issues within Endocrinology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (62.39%)
  • Ventral tegmental area (39.45%)
  • Dopamine (38.53%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (62.39%)
  • Ventral tegmental area (39.45%)
  • Dopamine (38.53%)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Ventral tegmental area, Dopamine, Glutamate receptor and GABAergic. Neuroscience and Glutamatergic are frequently intertwined in her study. Her Ventral tegmental area study frequently links to other fields, such as Neuron.

In her study, Sensory system is strongly linked to Midbrain, which falls under the umbrella field of Dopamine. Her Glutamate receptor study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Electrophysiology, Vesicle, Biophysics, Anatomy and Habenula. Her GABAergic study which covers Neuropathic pain that intersects with Central nucleus of the amygdala and Parabrachial Nucleus.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Ventral tegmental area: cellular heterogeneity, connectivity and behaviour. (421 citations)
  • VTA glutamatergic inputs to nucleus accumbens drive aversion by acting on GABAergic interneurons (112 citations)
  • Volitional social interaction prevents drug addiction in rat models. (95 citations)

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

  • Dopamine
  • Gene
  • Neurotransmitter

Marisela Morales mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Ventral tegmental area, Dopamine, Nucleus accumbens and GABAergic. The Neuroscience study combines topics in areas such as Glutamatergic and Neurotransmission. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Glutamatergic, Addiction, Methamphetamine and Abstinence is strongly linked to Insular cortex.

Her study looks at the intersection of Dopamine and topics like Excitatory postsynaptic potential with 5-HT receptor, Serotonergic and Dorsal raphe nucleus. As part of her studies on Nucleus accumbens, Marisela Morales often connects relevant subjects like Glutamate receptor. Her studies in GABAergic integrate themes in fields like Stimulation and Brain stimulation reward.
