What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine
  • Neuroscience

Her main research concerns Dopamine, Neuroscience, Addiction, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. The Dopamine study combines topics in areas such as Methylphenidate and Pharmacology. Her Addiction study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Nucleus accumbens, Prefrontal cortex and Substance abuse.

Her Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Alcohol and Detoxification. Her Endocrinology study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Receptor. Her research integrates issues of Nuclear medicine, Neurotransmitter and Radioligand in her study of Raclopride.

Her most cited work include:

  • Neurocircuitry of Addiction (3293 citations)
  • The Neural Basis of Addiction: A Pathology of Motivation and Choice (2105 citations)
  • Drug Addiction and Its Underlying Neurobiological Basis: Neuroimaging Evidence for the Involvement of the Frontal Cortex (2001 citations)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Dopamine, Endocrinology and Addiction. Her Internal medicine research incorporates elements of Alcohol and Positron emission tomography. Her research in Dopamine intersects with topics in Methylphenidate and Pharmacology.

Her Endocrinology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Receptor, Anesthesia and Thalamus. Nora D. Volkow interconnects Clinical psychology, Prefrontal cortex and Drug in the investigation of issues within Addiction. Her Striatum research incorporates themes from Methamphetamine and Nucleus accumbens.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (38.28%)
  • Internal medicine (34.98%)
  • Dopamine (35.24%)

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

  • Neuroscience (38.28%)
  • Psychiatry (16.06%)
  • Internal medicine (34.98%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Psychiatry, Internal medicine, Addiction and Endocrinology. Her is doing research in Human brain, Dopamine, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Thalamus and Nucleus accumbens, both of which are found in Neuroscience. Her research in Dopamine focuses on subjects like Methylphenidate, which are connected to Placebo.

The various areas that she examines in her Internal medicine study include Alcohol, Alcohol use disorder, Anterior cingulate cortex and Cardiology. Nora D. Volkow frequently studies issues relating to Clinical psychology and Addiction. She is interested in Striatum, which is a branch of Endocrinology.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Neurobiology of addiction: A neurocircuitry analysis. (1053 citations)
  • Neurobiologic Advances from the Brain Disease Model of Addiction (709 citations)
  • Opioid Abuse in Chronic Pain — Misconceptions and Mitigation Strategies (620 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Dopamine

Nora D. Volkow mostly deals with Neuroscience, Addiction, Psychiatry, Dopaminergic and Dopamine. Her Addiction research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Alcohol abuse, Substance abuse and Opioid. Nora D. Volkow has researched Dopaminergic in several fields, including Striatum, Stimulant, Methylphenidate, Human brain and Cannabis Dependence.

Her Methylphenidate research focuses on Dopamine transporter and how it relates to Methamphetamine. Her biological study deals with issues like Endocrinology, which deal with fields such as Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. Her Dopamine research focuses on subjects like Basal ganglia, which are linked to Psychosis and Ventral striatum.
