What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Parkinson's disease

Parkinson's disease, Internal medicine, Neuroscience, Endocrinology and Substantia nigra are his primary areas of study. Yves Agid interconnects Physical therapy, Dopamine and Degenerative disease in the investigation of issues within Parkinson's disease. His work on Cardiology expands to the thematically related Internal medicine.

His Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Alzheimer's disease and Progressive supranuclear palsy. Many of his studies on Endocrinology apply to Lesion as well. His work carried out in the field of Substantia nigra brings together such families of science as Anatomy, Human brain and Midbrain.

His most cited work include:

  • Clinical research criteria for the diagnosis of progressive supranuclear palsy (Steele-Richardson-Olszewski syndrome) Report of the NINDS-SPSP International Workshop* (2029 citations)
  • The substantia nigra of the human brain. II. Patterns of loss of dopamine-containing neurons in Parkinson's disease. (1213 citations)
  • Association between Early-Onset Parkinson's Disease and Mutations in the Parkin Gene (1189 citations)

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

Yves Agid focuses on Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience, Parkinson's disease and Substantia nigra. His Endocrinology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Human brain. Neuroscience is frequently linked to Progressive supranuclear palsy in his study.

His studies in Parkinson's disease integrate themes in fields like Central nervous system disease and Degenerative disease. His Degenerative disease study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Genetics and Parkinsonism. He combines subjects such as Ventral tegmental area, Anatomy and Midbrain with his study of Substantia nigra.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (32.76%)
  • Endocrinology (27.64%)
  • Neuroscience (26.92%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2003-2021)?

  • Parkinson's disease (26.35%)
  • Deep brain stimulation (5.84%)
  • Subthalamic nucleus (8.26%)

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

His primary areas of study are Parkinson's disease, Deep brain stimulation, Subthalamic nucleus, Neuroscience and Stimulation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Physical therapy, Neurology, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Degenerative disease. His Deep brain stimulation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Dystonia and Globus pallidus.

His research investigates the connection with Stimulation and areas like Anesthesia which intersect with concerns in Central nervous system disease, Confidence interval and Cohort. His Levodopa research is under the purview of Internal medicine. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Internal medicine, concentrating on Pathology and frequently concerns with Gastroenterology.

Between 2003 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Bilateral Deep-Brain Stimulation of the Globus Pallidus in Primary Generalized Dystonia (845 citations)
  • Causal relation between α-synuclein locus duplication as a cause of familial Parkinson's disease (828 citations)
  • Neurostimulation for Parkinson's Disease with Early Motor Complications (780 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Yves Agid mainly focuses on Subthalamic nucleus, Anesthesia, Physical therapy, Parkinson's disease and Deep brain stimulation. His Anesthesia research includes elements of Progressive supranuclear palsy, Central nervous system disease, Excessive daytime sleepiness, Sleep onset and Polysomnography. Yves Agid has included themes like Bioinformatics and Degenerative disease in his Parkinson's disease study.

In his work, Anatomy is strongly intertwined with Substantia nigra, which is a subfield of Brain mapping. His research in Stimulation intersects with topics in Basal ganglia and Dopamine. To a larger extent, he studies Internal medicine with the aim of understanding Neurostimulation.
