Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Neuron
  • Neuroscience

Ryuichi Shigemoto mainly investigates Metabotropic glutamate receptor, Neuroscience, Cell biology, Metabotropic glutamate receptor 1 and Molecular biology. Ryuichi Shigemoto has researched Metabotropic glutamate receptor in several fields, including Knockout mouse, Postsynaptic density and Metabotropic receptor. Ryuichi Shigemoto combines subjects such as Glutamatergic and Neurotransmission with his study of Neuroscience.

His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Cerebellum, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Glutamate receptor and GABAB receptor. His work carried out in the field of Metabotropic glutamate receptor 1 brings together such families of science as Metabotropic glutamate receptor 6, Metabotropic glutamate receptor 5, Metabotropic glutamate receptor 8 and Metabotropic glutamate receptor 7. His study in Molecular biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Complementary DNA, cDNA library, Receptor, Enzyme-linked receptor and Cerebellar cortex.

His most cited work include:

  • Molecular cloning and characterization of the rat NMDA receptor (1620 citations)
  • Sequence and expression of a metabotropic glutamate receptor (1130 citations)
  • GABAB-RECEPTOR SUBTYPES ASSEMBLE INTO FUNCTIONAL HETEROMERIC COMPLEXES (1069 citations)

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

Ryuichi Shigemoto mostly deals with Neuroscience, Cell biology, Metabotropic glutamate receptor, Glutamate receptor and Postsynaptic potential. The Neuroscience study combines topics in areas such as Neurotransmission and Metabotropic receptor. His research on Cell biology also deals with topics like

  • Receptor together with Molecular biology,
  • Endocrinology that intertwine with fields like Substance P.

His research in Metabotropic glutamate receptor intersects with topics in Cerebellum and Long-term depression. His research investigates the connection between Postsynaptic potential and topics such as AMPA receptor that intersect with issues in Synaptic plasticity and Biophysics. His work focuses on many connections between Metabotropic glutamate receptor 1 and other disciplines, such as Metabotropic glutamate receptor 5, that overlap with his field of interest in Metabotropic glutamate receptor 2.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (52.42%)
  • Cell biology (30.48%)
  • Metabotropic glutamate receptor (26.21%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (52.42%)
  • Biophysics (14.25%)
  • Cell biology (30.48%)

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

Ryuichi Shigemoto spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Biophysics, Cell biology, Postsynaptic potential and Synaptic plasticity. His research integrates issues of Glutamate receptor and AMPA receptor in his study of Neuroscience. His work is connected to Metabotropic glutamate receptor and Metabotropic receptor, as a part of Glutamate receptor.

His Metabotropic glutamate receptor study focuses on Metabotropic glutamate receptor 1 in particular. His work carried out in the field of Biophysics brings together such families of science as Electron microscope, Immunogold labelling, Synaptic vesicle and Anatomy. His work on Intracellular is typically connected to Adherens junction as part of general Cell biology study, connecting several disciplines of science.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Kv2 Ion Channels Determine the Expression and Localization of the Associated AMIGO-1 Cell Adhesion Molecule in Adult Brain Neurons. (166 citations)
  • HCN channelopathy in external globus pallidus neurons in models of Parkinson's disease. (143 citations)
  • Nanoscale Distribution of Presynaptic Ca2+ Channels and Its Impact on Vesicular Release during Development (137 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Neuron
  • Neurotransmitter

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Glutamate receptor, Synaptic plasticity, Postsynaptic potential and Biophysics. Ryuichi Shigemoto has included themes like Long-term potentiation, AMPA receptor and Nonsynaptic plasticity in his Neuroscience study. His Glutamate receptor research includes themes of Optogenetics and Channelrhodopsin.

His work deals with themes such as R-type calcium channel, Neurotransmission, Postsynaptic density, Anatomy and Parallel fiber, which intersect with Biophysics. As a member of one scientific family, Ryuichi Shigemoto mostly works in the field of Hippocampal formation, focusing on NMDA receptor and, on occasion, GABAergic. His study looks at the relationship between Synaptic scaling and topics such as Ion channel linked receptors, which overlap with Cell biology.
