Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuron
  • Neuroscience
  • Neurotransmitter

Richard J. Weinberg mainly investigates Cell biology, Postsynaptic density, Neuroscience, Postsynaptic potential and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both NMDA receptor, AMPA receptor, Biochemistry and Hippocampal formation. His Postsynaptic density research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in PDZ domain and Microtubule.

The various areas that Richard J. Weinberg examines in his PDZ domain study include SH3 domain, Scaffold protein and Disks Large Homolog 4 Protein. Richard J. Weinberg has included themes like Neurotransmission and Silent synapse in his Neuroscience study. His work in the fields of Dendritic spine, such as Dendritic filopodia, overlaps with other areas such as Actin remodeling of neurons.

His most cited work include:

  • Shank, a Novel Family of Postsynaptic Density Proteins that Binds to the NMDA Receptor/PSD-95/GKAP Complex and Cortactin (779 citations)
  • Cortico-striatal synaptic defects and OCD-like behaviours in Sapap3 -mutant mice (562 citations)
  • A β2 Adrenergic Receptor Signaling Complex Assembled with the Ca2+ Channel Cav1.2 (468 citations)

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

Richard J. Weinberg focuses on Neuroscience, Cell biology, Postsynaptic density, Dendritic spine and Synapse. His work carried out in the field of Neuroscience brings together such families of science as Glutamate receptor, AMPA receptor and Synaptic plasticity. His studies deal with areas such as Immunocytochemistry, Postsynaptic potential and Biochemistry as well as Cell biology.

His work on SHANK2 and Disks Large Homolog 4 Protein as part of his general Postsynaptic density study is frequently connected to Actin cytoskeleton, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. In general Dendritic spine, his work in Dendritic filopodia is often linked to Actin remodeling of neurons, Actin remodeling and Plasma membrane Ca2+ ATPase linking many areas of study. As a part of the same scientific family, Richard J. Weinberg mostly works in the field of Excitatory postsynaptic potential, focusing on Neurotransmission and, on occasion, Glutamatergic.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (49.68%)
  • Cell biology (42.68%)
  • Postsynaptic density (21.66%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2020)?

  • Neuroscience (49.68%)
  • Synapse (17.20%)
  • Dendritic spine (21.66%)

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

Neuroscience, Synapse, Dendritic spine, Cell biology and Synaptic plasticity are his primary areas of study. His research on Neuroscience frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Glutamatergic. His work deals with themes such as Ultrastructure, Anatomy, Artificial intelligence and Pattern recognition, which intersect with Synapse.

His Dendritic spine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cerebral cortex, Striatum and Biological neural network. His study in the fields of Axon, Cortical neurons and Phosphorylation under the domain of Cell biology overlaps with other disciplines such as Ubiquitin and Structured illumination microscopy. His Synaptic plasticity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Long-term potentiation, Perineuronal net, Hippocampus and Forebrain.

Between 2012 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • A Unique Population of Ventral Tegmental Area Neurons Inhibits the Lateral Habenula to Promote Reward (222 citations)
  • Contacts between the endoplasmic reticulum and other membranes in neurons (211 citations)
  • Altered mGluR5-Homer scaffolds and corticostriatal connectivity in a Shank3 complete knockout model of autism (151 citations)

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

  • Neuron
  • Neuroscience
  • Neurotransmitter

Richard J. Weinberg mostly deals with Neuroscience, Cell biology, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Nerve net and Synaptic plasticity. Richard J. Weinberg applies his multidisciplinary studies on Neuroscience and Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase in his research. His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Dendritic spine, Internalization and Endocytosis.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Hyperpolarization, Postsynapse, Postsynaptic potential and Premovement neuronal activity. His Nerve net research includes elements of Long-Term Synaptic Depression, Knockout mouse and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. He interconnects Forebrain, Neuroplasticity and Hippocampus in the investigation of issues within Synaptic plasticity.
