Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Dopamine
  • Neuroscience

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Anesthesia, Chronic stress and Memory consolidation. He has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Elevated plus maze and Stressor. His Endocrinology study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Malnutrition.

His Chronic stress research incorporates themes from Monoamine neurotransmitter, Central nervous system, Premovement neuronal activity and Opiate. Memory consolidation is a primary field of his research addressed under Neuroscience. His Neuroscience study incorporates themes from Endocannabinoid system and Cannabinoid receptor.

His most cited work include:

  • Previous Stress Facilitates Fear Memory, Attenuates GABAergic Inhibition, and Increases Synaptic Plasticity in the Rat Basolateral Amygdala (224 citations)
  • Reconsolidation of declarative memory in humans (174 citations)
  • Disruptive effect of midazolam on fear memory reconsolidation: decisive influence of reactivation time span and memory age. (120 citations)

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

Victor A. Molina spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience, Memory consolidation and Anesthesia. His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Elevated plus maze and Desipramine. His Endocrinology study combines topics in areas such as Receptor, Opiate and Anxiogenic.

His Memory consolidation research includes themes of NMDA receptor, Developmental psychology, Extinction and Cognitive psychology. He works mostly in the field of Anesthesia, limiting it down to concerns involving Benzodiazepine and, occasionally, Weaning. Within one scientific family, Victor A. Molina focuses on topics pertaining to GABAergic under Basolateral amygdala, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Bicuculline.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (42.34%)
  • Endocrinology (42.34%)
  • Neuroscience (39.64%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (39.64%)
  • Memory consolidation (27.03%)
  • Basolateral amygdala (16.22%)

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

Victor A. Molina mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Memory consolidation, Basolateral amygdala, NMDA receptor and Anxiety. His study in Stressor, Amygdala, Extinction, Hippocampal formation and Fear processing in the brain is carried out as part of his studies in Neuroscience. As part of the same scientific family, Victor A. Molina usually focuses on Amygdala, concentrating on Allosteric modulator and intersecting with Partial agonist, Anesthesia and Endocrinology.

Internal medicine covers he research in Partial agonist. Victor A. Molina combines Memory consolidation and Context in his studies. His research in Basolateral amygdala intersects with topics in Fear conditioning, GABAergic and Affect.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Astrocyte plasticity induced by emotional stress: A new partner in psychiatric physiopathology? (28 citations)
  • Stress-induced resistance to the fear memory labilization/reconsolidation process. Involvement of the basolateral amygdala complex. (24 citations)
  • An appetitive experience after fear memory destabilization attenuates fear retention: involvement GluN2B-NMDA receptors in the Basolateral Amygdala Complex. (16 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Dopamine

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Basolateral amygdala, Memory consolidation, GABAergic and Affect. His work in Neuroscience covers topics such as Anxiety which are related to areas like Stimulus, Bicuculline and Endophenotype. His research on Basolateral amygdala concerns the broader Endocrinology.

His studies in Memory consolidation integrate themes in fields like Developmental psychology and Extinction. The concepts of his GABAergic study are interwoven with issues in Traumatic memories, Emotionality, Fear conditioning and Engram. The various areas that Victor A. Molina examines in his Affect study include Fear processing in the brain and Ifenprodil, Antagonist.
