Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Psychiatry

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Circadian rhythm, Psychiatry and Depression. His Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Rapid cycling and Bipolar illness. His Endocrinology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Nocturnal and photoperiodism.

His Circadian rhythm study incorporates themes from Sleep in non-human animals and Rhythm. His work on Mania as part of general Depression research is frequently linked to Social relation, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His study in Bipolar disorder is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Antidepressant and Audiology.

His most cited work include:

  • Seasonal Affective Disorder: A Description of the Syndrome and Preliminary Findings With Light Therapy (1905 citations)
  • Light Suppresses Melatonin Secretion in Humans (1537 citations)
  • Epidemiological findings of seasonal changes in mood and behavior. A telephone survey of Montgomery County, Maryland. (528 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Circadian rhythm, Depression and Psychiatry. In his research on the topic of Internal medicine, Lithium is strongly related with Antidepressant. His work carried out in the field of Endocrinology brings together such families of science as Nocturnal, Sleep in non-human animals and photoperiodism.

His study explores the link between Circadian rhythm and topics such as Wakefulness that cross with problems in Arousal. His studies in Depression integrate themes in fields like Thermoregulation, Weight gain, Pathophysiology and Physiology. His work on Mood, Mania, Bipolar disorder and Hypomania as part of general Psychiatry study is frequently connected to In patient, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (48.84%)
  • Endocrinology (43.60%)
  • Circadian rhythm (31.40%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1996-2019)?

  • Internal medicine (48.84%)
  • Endocrinology (43.60%)
  • Circadian rhythm (31.40%)

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

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Circadian rhythm, Sleep in non-human animals and Melatonin. His Internal medicine study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Sleep onset. He has researched Endocrinology in several fields, including Serotonergic, Ipsapirone and Partial agonist.

His Circadian rhythm research includes themes of Nocturnal, Wakefulness and Thermoregulation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Arousal and Electroencephalography. His work in Melatonin addresses subjects such as Androgen, which are connected to disciplines such as Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and Testosterone.

Between 1996 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • A circadian signal of change of season in patients with seasonal affective disorder. (229 citations)
  • Assembling a clock for all seasons: are there M and E oscillators in the genes? (190 citations)
  • Photoperiodism in Humans and Other Primates: Evidence and Implications: (182 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry
  • Major depressive disorder

Thomas A. Wehr focuses on Circadian rhythm, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Melatonin and Neuroscience. His Circadian rhythm research incorporates elements of Wakefulness, Sleep in non-human animals, Electroencephalography, Mania and Nocturnal. His study in the field of Sleep Stages is also linked to topics like Duration.

His Nocturnal study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Day length, Light effects on circadian rhythm and Period. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Euphoriant and Serotonergic. His study looks at the relationship between Melatonin and fields such as photoperiodism, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.
