Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme

Masahiko Watanabe mainly investigates Neuroscience, Cell biology, Cerebellum, Glutamate receptor and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. His Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of NMDA receptor, Receptor and Neurotransmission. His NMDA receptor research includes elements of Synaptic plasticity, Long-term potentiation and Protein subunit.

His Cell biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Postsynaptic potential, In situ hybridization, Biochemistry, Hippocampal formation and AMPA receptor. He has included themes like Synapse and Neuron in his Cerebellum study. His work on Metabotropic glutamate receptor and Glutamate aspartate transporter as part of his general Glutamate receptor study is frequently connected to GLUD2, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

His most cited work include:

  • Epilepsy and Exacerbation of Brain Injury in Mice Lacking the Glutamate Transporter GLT-1 (1468 citations)
  • Endocannabinoid-Mediated Control of Synaptic Transmission (1018 citations)
  • Requirement for Hippocampal CA3 NMDA Receptors in Associative Memory Recall (879 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Cell biology, Cerebellum, Glutamate receptor and Internal medicine. Neuroscience is frequently linked to Postsynaptic potential in his study. His Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as In situ hybridization, NMDA receptor, AMPA receptor, Biochemistry and Neurotransmission.

As a part of the same scientific family, Masahiko Watanabe mostly works in the field of In situ hybridization, focusing on Molecular biology and, on occasion, Gene. His research investigates the connection between Glutamate receptor and topics such as Synaptic plasticity that intersect with problems in Long-term potentiation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Endocrinology and Oncology in addition to Internal medicine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (42.00%)
  • Cell biology (29.51%)
  • Cerebellum (14.42%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (42.00%)
  • Cell biology (29.51%)
  • Excitatory postsynaptic potential (11.24%)

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

Masahiko Watanabe mostly deals with Neuroscience, Cell biology, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Internal medicine. His research investigates the link between Neuroscience and topics such as Neurotransmission that cross with problems in Hippocampal formation. His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Cerebellum, Gene expression and Gene isoform.

His Excitatory postsynaptic potential research includes themes of Neurotransmitter and Spinal cord. He studied Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Postsynaptic potential that intersect with GABAB receptor and Ionotropic effect. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Endocrinology and Oncology.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The cellular and synaptic architecture of the mechanosensory dorsal horn (143 citations)
  • Circuit dissection of the role of somatostatin in itch and pain. (96 citations)
  • Monitoring and Updating of Action Selection for Goal-Directed Behavior through the Striatal Direct and Indirect Pathways. (63 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Cell biology, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Synapse. All of his Neuroscience and Somatosensory system, Medium spiny neuron, Purkinje cell, Climbing fiber and Optogenetics investigations are sub-components of the entire Neuroscience study. The Purkinje cell study combines topics in areas such as Glutamate receptor, Biological neural network and Neurotransmitter.

His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both NMDA receptor, Glycine, Transporter and Postsynaptic potential. As a member of one scientific family, Masahiko Watanabe mostly works in the field of Excitatory postsynaptic potential, focusing on Spinal cord and, on occasion, Neuropeptide FF, Spinal Cord Dorsal Horn and Mechanoreceptor. His Synapse study incorporates themes from Cerebellum, Anatomy, EGTA, Cav2.1 and Immunoelectron microscopy.
