Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Endocrinology

Her primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Locus coeruleus, Neuroscience and Neurotransmitter. In her study, Striatum is inextricably linked to Premovement neuronal activity, which falls within the broad field of Internal medicine. The concepts of her Endocrinology study are interwoven with issues in Receptor and Prefrontal cortex.

Her Locus coeruleus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Electrophysiology, Arousal, Antagonist and Norepinephrine. Her Neuroscience study incorporates themes from Neuropeptide, Raphe nuclei and Dorsal raphe nucleus. Her Neurotransmitter research includes themes of Axon and Neurotransmission.

Her most cited work include:

  • Assessing substrates underlying the behavioral effects of antidepressants using the modified rat forced swimming test. (872 citations)
  • Corticotropin-releasing factor activates noradrenergic neurons of the locus coeruleus. (536 citations)
  • Afferent regulation of locus coeruleus neurons: anatomy, physiology and pharmacology (447 citations)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Locus coeruleus, Neuroscience and Corticotropin-releasing hormone. Her Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Social stress and Premovement neuronal activity. A large part of her Endocrinology studies is devoted to Neurotransmitter.

Her Locus coeruleus study combines topics in areas such as Arousal, Electrophysiology, Norepinephrine and Endogenous opioid, Opioid. When carried out as part of a general Neuroscience research project, her work on Forebrain, Stressor and Axon is frequently linked to work in Immunoelectron microscopy, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. Rita J. Valentino works mostly in the field of Dorsal raphe nucleus, limiting it down to concerns involving Raphe nuclei and, occasionally, Antalarmin.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (61.16%)
  • Endocrinology (59.82%)
  • Locus coeruleus (45.54%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (61.16%)
  • Locus coeruleus (45.54%)
  • Endocrinology (59.82%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Locus coeruleus, Endocrinology, Neuroscience and Social stress. Many of her research projects under Internal medicine are closely connected to NFAT with NFAT, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. Her Locus coeruleus research includes elements of Norepinephrine and Endogenous opioid, Receptor, Opioid, Enkephalin.

In the field of Endocrinology, her study on Corticotropin-releasing hormone overlaps with subjects such as Immunoelectron microscopy. Rita J. Valentino has included themes like Psychopharmacology, Neurotransmission and Anxiety in her Neuroscience study. Her Social stress research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Coping, Stressor and Prefrontal cortex, Cognition.

Between 2011 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Sex differences in stress-related psychiatric disorders: neurobiological perspectives. (302 citations)
  • Sex Differences in Molecular and Cellular Substrates of Stress (101 citations)
  • Corticotropin-Releasing Factor in the Norepinephrine Nucleus, Locus Coeruleus, Facilitates Behavioral Flexibility (99 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Endocrinology

Her primary areas of investigation include Corticotropin-releasing hormone, Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Locus coeruleus and Neuroscience. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sex characteristics, Bioinformatics, Neuropeptide, Disease and Depression in addition to Corticotropin-releasing hormone. Her work carried out in the field of Endocrinology brings together such families of science as Peripheral, Social stress and Electrophysiology.

Her biological study focuses on Septal nuclei. Her Locus coeruleus research integrates issues from Forebrain, Psychopharmacology, Opioid, Opiate and Neural Inhibition. Her studies in Neuroscience integrate themes in fields like gamma-Aminobutyric acid and Neurotransmission.
