Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine
  • Neuroscience

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Dopamine, Neuroscience, Addiction, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. Her studies in Dopamine integrate themes in fields like Methylphenidate and Pharmacology. Her Pharmacology study incorporates themes from Dopamine Plasma Membrane Transport Proteins and Mechanism of action.

Her Addiction research includes themes of Nucleus accumbens, Prefrontal cortex and Substance abuse. Her Internal medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Alcohol and Detoxification. Her studies deal with areas such as Nuclear medicine, Neurotransmitter and Radioligand as well as Raclopride.

Her most cited work include:

  • Neurocircuitry of Addiction (3432 citations)
  • The Neural Basis of Addiction: A Pathology of Motivation and Choice (2157 citations)
  • Drug Addiction and Its Underlying Neurobiological Basis: Neuroimaging Evidence for the Involvement of the Frontal Cortex (2064 citations)

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

Nora D. Volkow focuses on Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Dopamine, Endocrinology and Addiction. Her work in Human brain, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Brain mapping, Orbitofrontal cortex and Neuroimaging is related to Neuroscience. Her work carried out in the field of Internal medicine brings together such families of science as Alcohol and Positron emission tomography.

The various areas that Nora D. Volkow examines in her Dopamine study include Methylphenidate and Pharmacology. She interconnects Receptor and Anesthesia in the investigation of issues within Endocrinology. Her research integrates issues of Drug, Prefrontal cortex and Clinical psychology in her study of Addiction.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (36.74%)
  • Internal medicine (33.70%)
  • Dopamine (34.04%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Psychiatry (16.55%)
  • Neuroscience (36.74%)
  • Internal medicine (33.70%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Psychiatry, Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Addiction and MEDLINE. Her Psychiatry study incorporates themes from Opioid use disorder, Opioid and Public health. Her studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Anterior cingulate cortex, Endocrinology and Alcohol use disorder.

Endocrinology is a component of her Dopamine and Striatum studies. Her Dopamine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Placebo and Methylphenidate. In her work, Obesity and Cannabis Dependence is strongly intertwined with Clinical psychology, which is a subfield of Addiction.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Collision of the COVID-19 and Addiction Epidemics. (279 citations)
  • Prevention and Treatment of Opioid Misuse and Addiction: A Review. (179 citations)
  • Increased risk of COVID-19 infection and mortality in people with mental disorders: analysis from electronic health records in the United States (146 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Psychiatry

Nora D. Volkow mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Addiction, Psychiatry, Opioid use disorder and Opioid. Her study in Neuroscience focuses on Human brain, Functional connectivity, Brain activity and meditation, Neurocognitive and Premovement neuronal activity. The concepts of her Addiction study are interwoven with issues in Orbitofrontal cortex, Nucleus accumbens, Dopamine, Glutamatergic and Neuroimaging.

Nora D. Volkow combines subjects such as Reward system and Amygdala with her study of Dopamine. The various areas that Nora D. Volkow examines in her Psychiatry study include Health services research, Public health and MEDLINE. While the research belongs to areas of Health care, Nora D. Volkow spends her time largely on the problem of Internal medicine, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Anterior cingulate cortex.
