Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Neuron
  • Neuroscience

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Anatomy, Cerebral cortex, Cell biology and Cerebrum. His is doing research in Neocortex, Neurogenesis, Radial glial cell, Macaque and Neuron, both of which are found in Neuroscience. His research in Radial glial cell intersects with topics in Corticogenesis and Mitosis.

Pasko Rakic combines subjects such as Golgi apparatus, Cortex, Visual cortex and Primate with his study of Anatomy. His Cerebral cortex research integrates issues from Neuroglia, Cortical surface, Ganglionic eminence, Synaptogenesis and Prefrontal cortex. His Cell biology research includes themes of Apoptosis, Granule cell and Immunology.

His most cited work include:

  • Specification of cerebral cortical areas (2463 citations)
  • Mode of cell migration to the superficial layers of fetal monkey neocortex. (1804 citations)
  • Decreased apoptosis in the brain and premature lethality in CPP32-deficient mice (1744 citations)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Cerebral cortex, Anatomy, Cell biology and Neurogenesis. His study in Neuroscience concentrates on Neocortex, Cortex, Visual cortex, Neuron and Synaptogenesis. His Cerebral cortex study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Corticogenesis, Regulation of gene expression, Cerebrum and Macaque.

His study in Anatomy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Thalamus, Retina, Central nervous system and Primate. His work deals with themes such as Embryonic stem cell, Cellular differentiation, Granule cell and Programmed cell death, which intersect with Cell biology. Pasko Rakic has included themes like Dentate gyrus, Cell division and Neural stem cell in his Neurogenesis study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (61.96%)
  • Cerebral cortex (27.20%)
  • Anatomy (27.96%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (61.96%)
  • Cerebral cortex (27.20%)
  • Neurogenesis (18.39%)

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

Pasko Rakic mostly deals with Neuroscience, Cerebral cortex, Neurogenesis, Cell biology and Neural stem cell. His study in Prefrontal cortex, Cerebrum, Neocortex, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Neuron is done as part of Neuroscience. His Cerebral cortex research incorporates elements of Thalamus, Anatomy, Synaptogenesis, Subventricular zone and Cortex.

His work carried out in the field of Neurogenesis brings together such families of science as Corticogenesis and Optogenetics. His studies in Cell biology integrate themes in fields like Embryonic stem cell, Regulation of gene expression, Immunolabeling and Genetics. Pasko Rakic has researched Neural stem cell in several fields, including Induced pluripotent stem cell and Macaque.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Extraordinary neoteny of synaptic spines in the human prefrontal cortex (758 citations)
  • Cortical evolution: judge the brain by its cover. (333 citations)
  • Not(ch) just development: Notch signalling in the adult brain (285 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Neuron
  • Neuroscience

Pasko Rakic focuses on Neuroscience, Cerebral cortex, Neural stem cell, Neurogenesis and Cell biology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Schizophrenia and Live cell imaging in addition to Neuroscience. His studies deal with areas such as Cerebrum, Prefrontal cortex, Gene and Synaptogenesis as well as Cerebral cortex.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Translation, Fragile X syndrome and Anatomy. His research integrates issues of Immunohistochemistry, Cell, Dna labeling and Induced pluripotent stem cell in his study of Neural stem cell. In Neurogenesis, he works on issues like Neocortex, which are connected to Neural development.
