Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Gene

Tomas Hökfelt mainly investigates Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Neuropeptide, Neuroscience and Spinal cord. His studies deal with areas such as Galanin, Substance P, Vasoactive intestinal peptide and Neuropeptide Y receptor as well as Endocrinology. In Substance P, Tomas Hökfelt works on issues like Immunohistochemistry, which are connected to Somatostatin.

As part of his studies on Internal medicine, Tomas Hökfelt frequently links adjacent subjects like Ganglion. His Neuropeptide research integrates issues from Neurotransmitter and Sensory nerve. His work deals with themes such as Sciatic nerve, Anatomy, Central nervous system and Distribution, which intersect with Spinal cord.

His most cited work include:

  • Distribution of substance P-like immunoreactivity in the central nervous system of the rat—I. Cell bodies and nerve terminals (1356 citations)
  • Neuropeptide Y (NPY)‐like immunoreactivity in peripheral noradrenergic neurons and effects of NPY on sympathetic function (1126 citations)
  • Experimental immunohistochemical studies on the localization and distribution of substance P in cat primary sensory neurons. (1000 citations)

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

Tomas Hökfelt mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuropeptide, Neuroscience and Galanin. His study looks at the relationship between Internal medicine and topics such as In situ hybridization, which overlap with Molecular biology. His Endocrinology research includes themes of Neuropeptide Y receptor and Spinal cord.

His study in Spinal cord is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Peripheral nerve injury, Nucleus, Anatomy and Pathology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cholecystokinin and Neuron. His research in Galanin intersects with topics in Hippocampal formation, Locus coeruleus, Axotomy and Dorsal root ganglion.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (65.15%)
  • Endocrinology (64.88%)
  • Neuropeptide (26.99%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2005-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (65.15%)
  • Endocrinology (64.88%)
  • Neuroscience (22.07%)

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

Tomas Hökfelt mainly investigates Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience, Neuropeptide and Galanin. Many of his studies on Internal medicine involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Cell biology. His studies examine the connections between Endocrinology and genetics, as well as such issues in Dorsal raphe nucleus, with regards to Tryptophan hydroxylase.

His Neuroscience study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Calretinin and SECRETAGOGIN. Much of his study explores Neuropeptide relationship to Hormone. Tomas Hökfelt interconnects Nerve injury, Sciatic nerve, Peripheral nerve injury and Neuropathic pain in the investigation of issues within Spinal cord.

Between 2005 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Evidence for dopamine receptor stimulation by apomorphine (870 citations)
  • The antimicrobial peptide cathelicidin protects the urinary tract against invasive bacterial infection. (486 citations)
  • Effect of ergot drugs on central catecholamine neurons: evidence for a stimulation of central dopamine neurons. (352 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuropeptide, Neuroscience and Galanin. His study brings together the fields of Autoantibody and Internal medicine. His research combines Cell biology and Endocrinology.

His Neuropeptide study incorporates themes from Basal forebrain, Hypothalamus and Nucleus, Solitary tract nucleus. The Neuroscience study combines topics in areas such as Anatomy and Nociception. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sciatic nerve and Depression.
