Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Hypothalamus

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Hypothalamus, Neuropeptide Y receptor and Nucleus. Stimulation, Galanin, Norepinephrine, Lateral hypothalamus and Ingestion are among the areas of Internal medicine where Sarah F. Leibowitz concentrates her study. Her Endocrinology study incorporates themes from Neuropeptide and Receptor.

Her work deals with themes such as Circadian rhythm, Central nervous system, Monoamine neurotransmitter, Neurochemical and Amygdala, which intersect with Hypothalamus. In Neuropeptide Y receptor, Sarah F. Leibowitz works on issues like Arc, which are connected to Neurotransmitter. Her Nucleus study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Food intake and Adrenergic stimulation.

Her most cited work include:

  • Neuropeptide Y chronically injected into the hypothalamus: a powerful neurochemical inducer of hyperphagia and obesity. (780 citations)
  • Neuroreptide Y: Stimulation of feeding and drinking by injection into the paraventricular nucleus (622 citations)
  • Hypothalamic serotonin in control of eating behavior, meal size, and body weight (448 citations)

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

Her main research concerns Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Hypothalamus, Galanin and Neuropeptide. Sarah F. Leibowitz works mostly in the field of Internal medicine, limiting it down to topics relating to Nucleus and, in certain cases, Endogeny. Her work carried out in the field of Endocrinology brings together such families of science as Receptor, Orexin and Neuropeptide Y receptor.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Norepinephrine, Enkephalin, Catecholamine, Central nervous system and Hormone in addition to Hypothalamus. She interconnects Neurochemical, Leptin and Median eminence in the investigation of issues within Galanin. Her Neuropeptide research integrates issues from Neurogenesis and Central nucleus of the amygdala.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (90.43%)
  • Endocrinology (90.07%)
  • Hypothalamus (50.00%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2009-2020)?

  • Internal medicine (90.43%)
  • Endocrinology (90.07%)
  • Orexin (12.77%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Orexin, Neuropeptide and Hypothalamus. Many of her studies on Internal medicine apply to Offspring as well. As a part of the same scientific family, Sarah F. Leibowitz mostly works in the field of Endocrinology, focusing on Neuropeptide Y receptor and, on occasion, Meal.

Sarah F. Leibowitz works on Hypothalamus which deals in particular with Central nucleus of the amygdala. Her research investigates the connection with Orexigenic and areas like Calorie which intersect with concerns in Ingestion and Overeating. The concepts of her Lateral hypothalamus study are interwoven with issues in Hypothalamic Hormones, Hormone, Dopaminergic and Melanin-concentrating hormone.

Between 2009 and 2020, her most popular works were:

  • Reduced accumbens dopamine in Sprague-Dawley rats prone to overeating a fat-rich diet. (92 citations)
  • Anterior thalamic paraventricular nucleus is involved in intermittent access ethanol drinking: role of orexin receptor 2 (86 citations)
  • Opioids in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus stimulate ethanol intake. (62 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Dopamine

Her primary areas of study are Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Orexin, Hypothalamus and Galanin. Her Endocrinology research includes themes of Offspring, Neuropeptide Y receptor and Melanin-concentrating hormone. Her study in Neuropeptide, Lateral hypothalamus, Orexigenic, Nucleus accumbens and Enkephalin is done as part of Internal medicine.

The concepts of her Orexigenic study are interwoven with issues in Neurochemical and Nicotine. Her research integrates issues of Nicotinic Antagonist, Nicotinic agonist, Mecamylamine and Cholinergic in her study of Hypothalamus. Her research in Dopamine focuses on subjects like Serotonin, which are connected to Estrogen.
