Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Nicotine, Cholinergic and Neuroscience. His study in Cerebral cortex, Neurotransmitter, Central nervous system, Catecholamine and Dopamine falls within the category of Internal medicine. His Endocrinology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Neurotoxicity, Synaptogenesis, Receptor, Serotonergic and Fetus.

His research integrates issues of Offspring, Nicotinic agonist, Choline transporter, Hippocampus and Addiction in his study of Nicotine. His work carried out in the field of Cholinergic brings together such families of science as Cell cycle, Stimulation, Acetylcholine and Cholinesterase. He combines subjects such as Synaptic plasticity, Developmental neurotoxicity and Pharmacology with his study of Neuroscience.

His most cited work include:

  • Effect of Corticosteroids for Fetal Maturation on Perinatal Outcomes: NIH Consensus Development Panel on the Effect of Corticosteroids for Fetal Maturation on Perinatal Outcomes (1007 citations)
  • Fetal nicotine or cocaine exposure: which one is worse? (616 citations)
  • Cholinergic systems in brain development and disruption by neurotoxicants: nicotine, environmental tobacco smoke, organophosphates. (429 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Nicotine, Receptor and Cholinergic. His research investigates the connection between Endocrinology and topics such as Ornithine decarboxylase that intersect with issues in Polyamine. In his research, Toxicity is intimately related to Fetus, which falls under the overarching field of Internal medicine.

As a part of the same scientific study, Theodore A. Slotkin usually deals with the Nicotine, concentrating on Pharmacology and frequently concerns with Chlorpyrifos and Organophosphate. His Cholinergic research incorporates elements of Hippocampus and Acetylcholine. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cerebellum and Midbrain in addition to Cerebral cortex.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Endocrinology (76.29%)
  • Internal medicine (76.29%)
  • Nicotine (20.62%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2004-2021)?

  • Endocrinology (76.29%)
  • Internal medicine (76.29%)
  • Nicotine (20.62%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Nicotine, Organophosphate and Cholinergic. He mostly deals with Neurotransmitter in his studies of Endocrinology. His Internal medicine study typically links adjacent topics like Diazinon.

His Nicotine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Offspring, Pregnancy, Tobacco smoke, Nicotinic agonist and Pharmacology. In his study, Toxicity and Developmental neurotoxicity is inextricably linked to Chlorpyrifos, which falls within the broad field of Organophosphate. His Cholinergic research integrates issues from Hippocampal formation, Hippocampus, Forebrain and Neurochemical.

Between 2004 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Brain anomalies in children exposed prenatally to a common organophosphate pesticide. (260 citations)
  • Is the PentaBDE replacement, tris (1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TDCPP), a developmental neurotoxicant? Studies in PC12 cells. (249 citations)
  • Developmental exposure of rats to chlorpyrifos leads to behavioral alterations in adulthood, involving serotonergic mechanisms and resembling animal models of depression. (193 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Nicotine, Diazinon and Serotonergic. Theodore A. Slotkin works in the field of Endocrinology, focusing on Neurotransmitter in particular. Internal medicine is frequently linked to Diabetes mellitus in his study.

His Nicotine research includes elements of Pregnancy, Nicotinic agonist, Smoking cessation and Addiction. The concepts of his Diazinon study are interwoven with issues in Chlorpyrifos and Cholinesterase. His study looks at the intersection of Cholinesterase and topics like Cholinergic with Axonogenesis, Acetylcholine and Tyrosine hydroxylase.
