Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Proinflammatory cytokine, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Sickness behavior. Immunology is frequently linked to Central nervous system in his study. His research in Proinflammatory cytokine intersects with topics in Cytokine, Microglia, Hippocampal formation, Neuroinflammation and Hippocampus.

His studies deal with areas such as Malaise, Psychiatry and Pleasure as well as Sickness behavior. In his study, Immunopathology and Depression is inextricably linked to Disease, which falls within the broad field of Immune system. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Homeostasis and Immunity.

His most cited work include:

  • From inflammation to sickness and depression: when the immune system subjugates the brain (4269 citations)
  • Exaggerated neuroinflammation and sickness behavior in aged mice following activation of the peripheral innate immune system (598 citations)
  • Cytokine-induced sickness behavior (551 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Immunology, Lipopolysaccharide and Proinflammatory cytokine. His Endocrinology study incorporates themes from Interleukin 6, Interleukin and Cytokine. Neuroinflammation, Immune system, Microglia, Inflammation and Sickness behavior are subfields of Immunology in which his conducts study.

His Immune system research focuses on Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus and how it relates to Andrology. His Lipopolysaccharide research integrates issues from Saline and Pharmacology. His Proinflammatory cytokine research incorporates themes from Innate immune system and Interleukin 10.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (41.27%)
  • Endocrinology (40.87%)
  • Immunology (38.10%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Immunology (38.10%)
  • Internal medicine (41.27%)
  • Endocrinology (40.87%)

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

Rodney W. Johnson spends much of his time researching Immunology, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroinflammation and Immune system. His Hippocampus study in the realm of Internal medicine interacts with subjects such as Epigallocatechin gallate. His work in the fields of Stimulation overlaps with other areas such as Butyrate.

His Neuroinflammation research also works with subjects such as

  • Lipopolysaccharide which intersects with area such as Proinflammatory cytokine,
  • DNA methylation which intersects with area such as Methyltransferase, Methylation and Hippocampal formation,
  • Epigenetics, which have a strong connection to Neuroscience. His biological study focuses on Sickness behavior. His Microglia study introduces a deeper knowledge of Inflammation.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Butyrate and Dietary Soluble Fiber Improve Neuroinflammation Associated With Aging in Mice. (65 citations)
  • Anti-inflammatory ω-3 endocannabinoid epoxides. (60 citations)
  • Neuro-immune dysfunction during brain aging: new insights in microglial cell regulation (43 citations)
