Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neurotransmitter
  • Neuron
  • Dopamine

His main research concerns Neuroscience, Neurotransmission, Cell biology, Receptor and NMDA receptor. Zhen Yan has included themes like Synaptic plasticity, Agonist and GABAA receptor in his Neuroscience study. His Neurotransmission research includes themes of AMPA receptor, Glutamatergic, Prefrontal cortex and Chronic stress.

His studies deal with areas such as Ion channel linked receptors, Knockout mouse and Cholinergic as well as Cell biology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Signal transduction and MAPK/ERK pathway in addition to Receptor. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Long-term potentiation and NMDA receptor.

His most cited work include:

  • The stressed synapse: the impact of stress and glucocorticoids on glutamate transmission (805 citations)
  • Coordinated Expression of Dopamine Receptors in Neostriatal Medium Spiny Neurons (679 citations)
  • Phosphorylation of DARPP-32 by Cdk5 modulates dopamine signalling in neurons (505 citations)

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

Zhen Yan spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Cell biology, Neurotransmission, Prefrontal cortex and Receptor. His Neuroscience study combines topics in areas such as NMDA receptor and AMPA receptor. The concepts of his Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Synapse, Biochemistry, Amyloid precursor protein and GABAA receptor.

The Neurotransmission study combines topics in areas such as Huntingtin, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Serotonergic. His Prefrontal cortex research integrates issues from Electrophysiology, Glutamatergic, 5-HT receptor, Serotonin and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. His Receptor study which covers Endocrinology that intersects with Protein kinase C and Muscarinic acetylcholine receptor M1.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (55.74%)
  • Cell biology (42.62%)
  • Neurotransmission (30.05%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Prefrontal cortex (26.23%)
  • Neuroscience (55.74%)
  • Cell biology (42.62%)

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

His primary areas of study are Prefrontal cortex, Neuroscience, Cell biology, Histone methyltransferase and Neurotransmission. The various areas that Zhen Yan examines in his Prefrontal cortex study include Schizophrenia, Electrophysiology, NMDA receptor and Glutamate receptor, Glutamatergic. Zhen Yan has researched Glutamatergic in several fields, including Transcriptome, Chronic stress, Protein degradation and DNA methylation.

Zhen Yan has included themes like Histone H3 and Autism spectrum disorder in his Neuroscience study. His studies in Cell biology integrate themes in fields like Proto-Oncogene Proteins c-mdm2 and Cav1.2. His Histone methyltransferase study also includes fields such as

  • Histone methylation which intersects with area such as EHMT1 and Neurodegeneration,
  • Striatum and Cognitive psychology most often made with reference to Autism.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Dopaminylation of histone H3 in ventral tegmental area regulates cocaine seeking (36 citations)
  • Inhibition of EHMT1/2 rescues synaptic and cognitive functions for Alzheimer's disease. (25 citations)
  • Ahnak scaffolds p11/Anxa2 complex and L-type voltage-gated calcium channel and modulates depressive behavior. (22 citations)

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

  • Neurotransmitter
  • Neuron
  • Genetics

Cell biology, Histone methyltransferase, Neuroscience, Histone methylation and Prefrontal cortex are his primary areas of study. His Cell biology research includes themes of Associative learning and Amyloid precursor protein. In his study, Striatum is strongly linked to Autism, which falls under the umbrella field of Histone methyltransferase.

In his works, Zhen Yan performs multidisciplinary study on Neuroscience and Midbrain. His study on Histone methylation also encompasses disciplines like

  • EHMT1 that intertwine with fields like Excitatory postsynaptic potential, EHMT2 and Neurotransmission,
  • Neurodegeneration that connect with fields like AMPA receptor. His Prefrontal cortex research incorporates elements of Glutamate receptor and NMDA receptor.
