2015 - Fellow of the Royal Society, United Kingdom
His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Spinal cord, Anatomy, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential. His research links Central pattern generator with Neuroscience. His Spinal cord research is multidisciplinary, relying on both GDF7, Tonic and Central nervous system.
His Anatomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Sensory system and Period. His Excitatory postsynaptic potential research incorporates themes from NMDA receptor, Postsynaptic potential and Brainstem. In the subject of general Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, his work in Interneuron is often linked to Tadpole and Light intensity, thereby combining diverse domains of study.
Alan Roberts mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Anatomy, Spinal cord, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Sensory system. He focuses mostly in the field of Neuroscience, narrowing it down to matters related to Central pattern generator and, in some cases, Reciprocal inhibition. His Growth cone study in the realm of Anatomy interacts with subjects such as Neurite.
His Spinal cord research includes elements of Tonic, Central nervous system, Hindbrain, Brainstem and Commissure. His research on Excitatory postsynaptic potential also deals with topics like
His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Neuron, Sensory system, Axon and Spinal cord. His work in the fields of Neuroscience, such as Hindbrain, Brainstem and Patch clamp, intersects with other areas such as Population and Simple. His Neuron research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Synapse, Biological neural network, Electrophysiology and Nervous system.
His work in Sensory system addresses subjects such as Stimulus, which are connected to disciplines such as Stimulation and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. His Spinal cord study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Neural tube, Floor plate and Interneuron. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Central pattern generator, concentrating on Glutamatergic and intersecting with Synaptic fatigue and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential.
Alan Roberts mainly investigates Neuroscience, Neuron, Spinal neuron, Spinal cord and Brainstem. Alan Roberts interconnects Glutamate receptor and Amphibian in the investigation of issues within Neuroscience. Alan Roberts has researched Glutamate receptor in several fields, including Reciprocal inhibition, Gating, Depolarization and Membrane potential.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Rhythm and Reflex. The study incorporates disciplines such as Glutamatergic, Interneuron and Hindbrain in addition to Spinal cord. His research integrates issues of Anatomy, Nerve net, Axon and Dendrite in his study of Brainstem.
