Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuron
  • Neurotransmitter
  • Neuroscience

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Postsynaptic potential, Neurotransmission and Cell biology. His Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Synaptic plasticity, Receptor and GABAB receptor. Rafael Luján combines subjects such as gamma-Aminobutyric acid and G protein-coupled inwardly-rectifying potassium channel with his study of GABAB receptor.

He focuses mostly in the field of Postsynaptic potential, narrowing it down to topics relating to Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and, in certain cases, Cell signaling and Neurotransmitter. Rafael Luján has included themes like AMPA receptor, Long-term depression, Glutamatergic and Metabotropic receptor in his Neurotransmission study. His Cell biology research includes elements of Endocytic cycle, Bulk endocytosis, Endocytosis, Clathrin and Adenosine A2A receptor.

His most cited work include:

  • Salient features of synaptic organisation in the cerebral cortex (785 citations)
  • Perisynaptic Location of Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors mGluR1 and mGluR5 on Dendrites and Dendritic Spines in the Rat Hippocampus (723 citations)
  • Cell Type and Pathway Dependence of Synaptic AMPA Receptor Number and Variability in the Hippocampus (702 citations)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Cell biology, Neurotransmission, Postsynaptic potential and Dendritic spine. His research in Neuroscience intersects with topics in Synaptic plasticity, Glutamatergic and G protein-coupled inwardly-rectifying potassium channel. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Cerebellum, Glutamate receptor, Receptor, Hippocampal formation and GABAB receptor.

His studies deal with areas such as Long-term potentiation, Endocrinology and Neurotransmitter as well as Neurotransmission. His study in Postsynaptic potential is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Neocortex, Synapse and Neuron. His research in Dendritic spine tackles topics such as Immunoelectron microscopy which are related to areas like Dentate gyrus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (60.11%)
  • Cell biology (33.33%)
  • Neurotransmission (18.58%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (60.11%)
  • Cell biology (33.33%)
  • Dendritic spine (15.30%)

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

Rafael Luján mainly investigates Neuroscience, Cell biology, Dendritic spine, Hippocampal formation and Neurotransmission. The concepts of his Neuroscience study are interwoven with issues in Glutamate receptor, Glutamatergic and Synaptic plasticity. His Cell biology research includes themes of Receptor, Immunoelectron microscopy and GABAB receptor.

His GABAB receptor study combines topics in areas such as Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, G protein-coupled receptor and Subcellular localization. The various areas that Rafael Luján examines in his Dendritic spine study include Cerebellum, Postsynaptic potential and Potassium channel. He works mostly in the field of Cerebellum, limiting it down to concerns involving Neuron and, occasionally, Cytoplasm.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Rescue of GABAB and GIRK function in the lateral habenula by protein phosphatase 2A inhibition ameliorates depression-like phenotypes in mice (79 citations)
  • Endocannabinoids Induce Lateral Long-Term Potentiation of Transmitter Release by Stimulation of Gliotransmission (67 citations)
  • L-DOPA Oppositely Regulates Synaptic Strength and Spine Morphology in D1 and D2 Striatal Projection Neurons in Dyskinesia (65 citations)

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

  • Neuron
  • Neurotransmitter
  • Neuroscience

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Dopamine, Cell biology, G protein-coupled inwardly-rectifying potassium channel and Hippocampus. His Neuroscience research incorporates elements of Long-term potentiation and Metabotropic receptor. His work deals with themes such as Glutamatergic and Neurotransmission, which intersect with Dopamine.

His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Receptor and Cell type. His G protein-coupled inwardly-rectifying potassium channel course of study focuses on Function and Subcellular localization, GABAB receptor and Potassium channel. Rafael Luján has included themes like Dyskinesia, Postsynaptic potential and Excitatory postsynaptic potential in his Dendritic spine study.
