Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine

Minoru Narita mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Pharmacology, Agonist and Neuroscience. He has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Protein kinase C and Protein kinase A. The study incorporates disciplines such as Opioid receptor and Enkephalin in addition to Endocrinology.

His research in Morphine and Conditioned place preference are components of Pharmacology. His Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Neurotrophic factors and Sciatic nerve. His work carried out in the field of Neuropathic pain brings together such families of science as Photostimulation, Chronic pain and Spinal cord.

His most cited work include:

  • Direct involvement of orexinergic systems in the activation of the mesolimbic dopamine pathway and related behaviors induced by morphine. (432 citations)
  • Chronic pain induces anxiety with concomitant changes in opioidergic function in the amygdala. (211 citations)
  • Regulations of opioid dependence by opioid receptor types (176 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Pharmacology, Receptor and Morphine. Minoru Narita combines subjects such as Protein kinase C and Spinal cord with his study of Internal medicine. Minoru Narita usually deals with Endocrinology and limits it to topics linked to Agonist and Kinase.

His work in Pharmacology addresses issues such as Opioid, which are connected to fields such as Conditioned place preference. His study brings together the fields of Stimulation and Receptor. Minoru Narita has included themes like -Naloxone, Fentanyl, Oxycodone and Drug in his Morphine study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (47.17%)
  • Endocrinology (46.26%)
  • Pharmacology (40.14%)

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

  • Neuroscience (22.22%)
  • Pharmacology (40.14%)
  • Internal medicine (47.17%)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Pharmacology, Internal medicine, Receptor and Dopaminergic. The concepts of his Neuroscience study are interwoven with issues in Parkinson's disease and Induced pluripotent stem cell. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including DAMGO, Systemic administration and Opioid.

His work deals with themes such as Endocrinology, microRNA, Oncology and Cancer research, which intersect with Internal medicine. His Endocrinology study incorporates themes from Cisplatin and Motor coordination. Minoru Narita works mostly in the field of Receptor, limiting it down to topics relating to Drug tolerance and, in certain cases, Morphine-6-glucuronide and Active metabolite, as a part of the same area of interest.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Tumour resistance in induced pluripotent stem cells derived from naked mole-rats. (42 citations)
  • Activation of perineuronal net-expressing excitatory neurons during associative memory encoding and retrieval (29 citations)
  • Activation of ventral tegmental area dopaminergic neurons reverses pathological allodynia resulting from nerve injury or bone cancer. (26 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Cancer

His primary areas of investigation include Pharmacology, Receptor, Internal medicine, Neuroscience and Dopamine. The various areas that Minoru Narita examines in his Pharmacology study include Epigenomics, Valproic Acid and Toxicity. His Receptor research includes elements of Morphine and Drug tolerance.

His Internal medicine research incorporates themes from Endocrinology, microRNA, Gene and Oncology. His Endocrinology study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Parkinson's disease. The study incorporates disciplines such as Threshold of pain and Chronic pain in addition to Dopamine.
