Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Dopamine
  • Gene
  • Neurotransmitter

Peter W. Kalivas focuses on Nucleus accumbens, Neuroscience, Dopamine, Glutamate receptor and Addiction. His research integrates issues of Ventral tegmental area, Prefrontal cortex, Basal ganglia, Pharmacology and Ventral pallidum in his study of Nucleus accumbens. The various areas that Peter W. Kalivas examines in his Neuroscience study include NMDA receptor and Glutamatergic.

He is investigating Dopamine as part of his Endocrinology and Internal medicine and Dopamine study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Extracellular, Glutamic acid, Self-administration and Neurotransmitter in addition to Glutamate receptor. His study looks at the relationship between Addiction and fields such as Neuroplasticity, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His most cited work include:

  • The Neural Basis of Addiction: A Pathology of Motivation and Choice (2105 citations)
  • Dopamine transmission in the initiation and expression of drug- and stress-induced sensitization of motor activity (1883 citations)
  • Alterations in dopaminergic and glutamatergic transmission in the induction and expression of behavioral sensitization: a critical review of preclinical studies. (1194 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Nucleus accumbens, Neuroscience, Dopamine, Internal medicine and Addiction. His Nucleus accumbens study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ventral tegmental area, Sensitization, Basal ganglia, Pharmacology and Ventral pallidum. His work carried out in the field of Neuroscience brings together such families of science as Glutamate receptor, Glutamatergic and Synaptic plasticity.

Dopamine is closely attributed to Neurochemical in his study. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Anesthesia and Endocrinology. His studies deal with areas such as Extinction, Substance abuse and Drug as well as Addiction.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Nucleus accumbens (53.05%)
  • Neuroscience (51.47%)
  • Dopamine (31.15%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (51.47%)
  • Nucleus accumbens (53.05%)
  • Addiction (24.15%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Nucleus accumbens, Addiction, Glutamate receptor and Synaptic plasticity. His biological study deals with issues like Glutamatergic, which deal with fields such as Stimulation. His Nucleus accumbens research includes themes of NMDA receptor, AMPA receptor, Self-administration, Long-term potentiation and Ventral pallidum.

His work deals with themes such as Neuroplasticity, Calcium channel, Substance abuse and Drug, which intersect with Addiction. His Glutamate receptor research includes elements of Transporter and Pharmacology. His Dopamine research incorporates elements of Retigabine and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Limbic Motor Circuits and Neuropsychiatry (249 citations)
  • Coding the direct/indirect pathways by D1 and D2 receptors is not valid for accumbens projections (230 citations)
  • Potential Role of N-Acetylcysteine in the Management of Substance Use Disorders (122 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Neurotransmitter

Peter W. Kalivas mostly deals with Neuroscience, Nucleus accumbens, Synaptic plasticity, Addiction and Glutamate receptor. His studies in Neuroscience integrate themes in fields like Long-term potentiation and Drug. He has researched Nucleus accumbens in several fields, including Electrophysiology, NMDA receptor, Optogenetics, Extinction and Ventral pallidum.

Peter W. Kalivas combines subjects such as Extracellular matrix, Cell biology and Medium spiny neuron with his study of Synaptic plasticity. He interconnects Transporter, Relapse prevention, Glutamatergic, Glutamic acid and Nicotine in the investigation of issues within Addiction. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Glutamate receptor, narrowing it down to issues related to the Pharmacology, and often Glutamate homeostasis and Excitatory postsynaptic potential.
