Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Neuron
  • Central nervous system

Paul J. May mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Superior colliculus, Anatomy, Midbrain and Oculomotor nucleus. His study in Thalamus, Cerebellum, Fastigial nucleus, Macaque and Vestibular system is carried out as part of his Neuroscience studies. Paul J. May combines subjects such as Saccadic masking, Sensory system, Brainstem, Visual perception and Basal ganglia with his study of Superior colliculus.

His work in the fields of Anatomy, such as Facial muscles and Extraocular muscles, overlaps with other areas such as Orbicularis oculi muscle. His Midbrain research includes themes of Substantia nigra, Pars compacta, Biotinylated dextran amine and Ventral tegmental area. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Facial motor nucleus, Nucleus, Edinger–Westphal nucleus and Motor neuron.

His most cited work include:

  • The mammalian superior colliculus: laminar structure and connections. (429 citations)
  • Cerebellotectal pathways in the macaque: implications for collicular generation of saccades. (147 citations)
  • Morphological substrate for eyelid movements: Innervation and structure of primate levator palpebrae superioris and orbicularis oculi muscles (131 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Anatomy, Superior colliculus, Midbrain and Oculomotor nucleus. His work in Reticular formation, Macaque, Pretectal area, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Ciliary ganglion is related to Neuroscience. The concepts of his Anatomy study are interwoven with issues in Edinger–Westphal nucleus, Somatosensory system and Nucleus.

His study focuses on the intersection of Superior colliculus and fields such as Brainstem with connections in the field of Paramedian pontine reticular formation. The various areas that Paul J. May examines in his Midbrain study include Substantia nigra and Axon. His Oculomotor nucleus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Motor neuron, Vergence and Fastigial nucleus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (81.91%)
  • Anatomy (58.51%)
  • Superior colliculus (30.85%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (81.91%)
  • Midbrain (29.79%)
  • Reticular formation (21.28%)

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

Paul J. May mostly deals with Neuroscience, Midbrain, Reticular formation, Anatomy and Oculomotor nucleus. All of his Neuroscience and Superior colliculus, Accommodation, Ciliary muscle, Ciliary ganglion and Saccade investigations are sub-components of the entire Neuroscience study. Paul J. May interconnects Superior Colliculi, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Optogenetics and Saccadic masking in the investigation of issues within Superior colliculus.

His studies in Midbrain integrate themes in fields like Nucleus, Lens and Primate. His work focuses on many connections between Reticular formation and other disciplines, such as Midbrain tegmentum, that overlap with his field of interest in Fastigial nucleus, Paramedian pontine reticular formation, Brainstem and Pons. His study in Oculomotor nucleus is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Extraocular muscles and Vergence, Eye movement.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Circuits for Action and Cognition: A View from the Superior Colliculus. (111 citations)
  • Parvalbumin and GABA Microcircuits in the Mouse Superior Colliculus. (22 citations)
  • A central mesencephalic reticular formation projection to medial rectus motoneurons supplying singly and multiply innervated extraocular muscle fibers (16 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Neuron
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Midbrain, Anatomy, Superior colliculus and Lens. When carried out as part of a general Neuroscience research project, his work on Reticular formation, GABAergic and Excitatory postsynaptic potential is frequently linked to work in Chemistry and Glutamatergic, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Midbrain research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Primate, Zona incerta and Macaque.

Anatomy is frequently linked to Oculomotor nucleus in his study. Paul J. May works mostly in the field of Superior colliculus, limiting it down to topics relating to Superior Colliculi and, in certain cases, Saccadic masking, Orienting system, Visual perception and Cognition, as a part of the same area of interest. His Lens research integrates issues from Choline acetyltransferase, Cholinergic, Accommodation, Nucleus and Ciliary body.
