What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Neuron
  • Internal medicine

Her main research concerns Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Working memory, Cerebral cortex and Cortex. Her research on Neuroscience frequently links to adjacent areas such as Anatomy. Patricia S. Goldman-Rakic interconnects Motor cortex, Cerebrum, Superior frontal gyrus and Posterior parietal cortex in the investigation of issues within Anatomy.

She combines subjects such as Psychosis, Schizophrenia, Neuron and Thalamus with her study of Prefrontal cortex. Her research integrates issues of Saccade, Cognitive science, Dihydrexidine and Visual memory in her study of Working memory. Her Cerebral cortex research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Dendritic spine, Sensory system, Synaptogenesis, Neuropil and Synapse.

Her most cited work include:

  • Mnemonic coding of visual space in the monkey's dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (2161 citations)
  • Cellular basis of working memory (1988 citations)
  • Preface: Cerebral Cortex Has Come of Age (1491 citations)

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

Patricia S. Goldman-Rakic mainly investigates Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Cerebral cortex, Working memory and Cortex. Her research on Neuroscience often connects related topics like Anatomy. Her Prefrontal cortex research includes themes of Thalamus, Schizophrenia, Posterior parietal cortex and Primate.

Her studies in Cerebral cortex integrate themes in fields like Neocortex, Central nervous system and Dendritic spine. The various areas that she examines in her Working memory study include Cognitive psychology and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sensory system, Sulcus and Visual cortex.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (74.32%)
  • Prefrontal cortex (50.68%)
  • Cerebral cortex (27.05%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 1999-2016)?

  • Neuroscience (74.32%)
  • Prefrontal cortex (50.68%)
  • Working memory (25.68%)

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

Patricia S. Goldman-Rakic spends much of her time researching Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Working memory, Dopamine and Cognition. Patricia S. Goldman-Rakic focuses mostly in the field of Neuroscience, narrowing it down to topics relating to Neurotransmission and, in certain cases, Parvalbumin. Her study in Prefrontal cortex is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Schizophrenia, Postsynaptic potential, Stimulus, Psychosis and Neural Inhibition.

Her Working memory research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cognitive psychology, Posterior parietal cortex and Functional magnetic resonance imaging. Her studies deal with areas such as Frontal lobe and Consumer neuroscience as well as Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. Much of her study explores Cerebral cortex relationship to Anatomy.

Between 1999 and 2016, her most popular works were:

  • Synaptic Mechanisms and Network Dynamics Underlying Spatial Working Memory in a Cortical Network Model (819 citations)
  • D1 receptors in prefrontal cells and circuits (721 citations)
  • Targeting the dopamine D1 receptor in schizophrenia: insights for cognitive dysfunction (474 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Neuron
  • Internal medicine

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Working memory, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Spatial memory. Her research in Neuroscience intersects with topics in Receptor and Cognitive psychology. The Prefrontal cortex study combines topics in areas such as Schizophrenia, Stimulus, Premovement neuronal activity, Dopamine and Interneuron.

Her work focuses on many connections between Dopamine and other disciplines, such as Antipsychotic, that overlap with her field of interest in Dopamine receptor. Her Working memory research integrates issues from Agonist, Pyramidal cell, Dopamine receptor D2 and Neuron. The concepts of her Spatial memory study are interwoven with issues in NMDA receptor, Cortical network, Network dynamics and Attractor network.
