Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Neurotransmitter
  • Neuron

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Long-term potentiation, Synaptic plasticity and Neurotransmission. His Neuroscience study combines topics in areas such as NMDA receptor, Postsynaptic potential, Long-term depression and Depolarization. He combines subjects such as Electrophysiology and Anatomy with his study of Excitatory postsynaptic potential.

The concepts of his Long-term potentiation study are interwoven with issues in Glutamate receptor, Hippocampal mossy fiber, Hippocampal formation and Membrane potential. His Synaptic plasticity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Dendritic spine and Hippocampus. His Neurotransmission research incorporates elements of Endocrinology, Central nervous system, Neurotransmitter and Signal transduction.

His most cited work include:

  • Long-Term Potentiation--A Decade of Progress? (2429 citations)
  • Endogenous cannabinoids mediate retrograde signalling at hippocampal synapses (1322 citations)
  • Evidence for silent synapses: Implications for the expression of LTP (1077 citations)

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

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, AMPA receptor, Long-term potentiation and Neurotransmission. Roger A. Nicoll has researched Neuroscience in several fields, including Synaptic plasticity, Glutamate receptor, Long-term depression and Postsynaptic potential. His Excitatory postsynaptic potential research includes elements of Pyramidal cell, Electrophysiology and Anatomy.

His AMPA receptor study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Protein subunit and Cell biology. Roger A. Nicoll combines subjects such as NMDA receptor, Hippocampal mossy fiber, Mossy fiber, Hippocampal formation and Hippocampus with his study of Long-term potentiation. The Neurotransmission study combines topics in areas such as Endocrinology, Glutamatergic and Neurotransmitter.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (65.69%)
  • Excitatory postsynaptic potential (28.71%)
  • AMPA receptor (27.74%)

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

  • Neuroscience (65.69%)
  • AMPA receptor (27.74%)
  • Cell biology (20.92%)

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

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, AMPA receptor, Cell biology, Neurotransmission and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. His studies in Neuroscience integrate themes in fields like Synaptic plasticity, Long-term potentiation, Glutamate receptor and Postsynaptic potential. The Silent synapse and Long-term depression research Roger A. Nicoll does as part of his general AMPA receptor study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Function, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

His Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as NMDA receptor, Receptor, Protein subunit and Neuroligin. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Hippocampal formation, Cerebellum and Voltage-dependent calcium channel. In his research, Biophysics and Membrane-associated guanylate kinase is intimately related to Glutamatergic, which falls under the overarching field of Excitatory postsynaptic potential.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A Cortical Circuit for Gain Control by Behavioral State (581 citations)
  • AMPARs and Synaptic Plasticity: The Last 25 Years (564 citations)
  • A Brief History of Long-Term Potentiation. (277 citations)
