Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Immune system

Steven F. Maier mainly investigates Neuroscience, Immunology, Proinflammatory cytokine, Immune system and Endocrinology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Learned helplessness, Raphe nuclei and Dorsal raphe nucleus in addition to Neuroscience. His Proinflammatory cytokine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Morphine, Pharmacology, Microglia and Hyperalgesia, Allodynia.

His Pharmacology research incorporates themes from Anesthesia, -Naloxone and TLR4. Steven F. Maier focuses mostly in the field of Immune system, narrowing it down to topics relating to Cytokine and, in certain cases, Vagotomy. His research on Endocrinology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Internal medicine.

His most cited work include:

  • Learned helplessness: Theory and evidence. (1808 citations)
  • Failure to Escape Traumatic Shock (1444 citations)
  • Cytokines for psychologists: Implications of bidirectional immune-to-brain communication for understanding behavior, mood, and cognition. (1012 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Immunology and Pharmacology. His Neuroscience research integrates issues from Learned helplessness, Microglia and Dorsal raphe nucleus. His work deals with themes such as Stressor, Neurochemical, Shock and Amygdala, which intersect with Learned helplessness.

His study in Immunology focuses on Immune system, Proinflammatory cytokine, Cytokine, Inflammation and Tumor necrosis factor alpha. His studies in Pharmacology integrate themes in fields like -Naloxone, Opioid, TLR4 and Allodynia. His Allodynia study incorporates themes from Anesthesia, Sciatic nerve and Neuropathic pain.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (33.15%)
  • Internal medicine (25.91%)
  • Endocrinology (25.72%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (33.15%)
  • Neuroinflammation (7.61%)
  • Microglia (12.32%)

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

Steven F. Maier mostly deals with Neuroscience, Neuroinflammation, Microglia, Pharmacology and Immunology. In his work, Ventromedial prefrontal cortex is strongly intertwined with Learned helplessness, which is a subfield of Neuroscience. His Neuroinflammation study combines topics in areas such as Proinflammatory cytokine, Hippocampal formation, Endocrinology and Priming.

Steven F. Maier interconnects Lipopolysaccharide, HMGB1 and Glucocorticoid in the investigation of issues within Microglia. His Pharmacology research includes themes of Agonist, Receptor, TLR4 and Allodynia. His work is dedicated to discovering how Immunology, Central nervous system are connected with Chemokine and other disciplines.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Pathological pain and the neuroimmune interface (472 citations)
  • Dynamic microglial alterations underlie stress-induced depressive-like behavior and suppressed neurogenesis (334 citations)
  • Learned helplessness at fifty: Insights from neuroscience. (207 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Finance

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Microglia, Immunology, Neuroinflammation and Endocrinology. His study in Neuroscience is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Pharmacology, Dorsal raphe nucleus and TLR4. Steven F. Maier combines subjects such as Lipopolysaccharide, Glucocorticoid and Sensitization with his study of Microglia.

His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Signal transduction and Central nervous system. His Endocrinology research includes elements of Proinflammatory cytokine and Receptor, Internal medicine. His Prefrontal cortex study combines topics in areas such as Raphe, Serotonergic, Learned helplessness and Neurochemical.
