His main research concerns NMDA receptor, Biophysics, Neuroscience, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Neurotransmission. His study on NMDA receptor is covered under Receptor. His Biophysics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biochemistry, Calcium, Reversal potential and Ion channel.
His Neuroscience research includes elements of Synaptic plasticity, Postsynaptic potential and Long-term depression. The concepts of his Excitatory postsynaptic potential study are interwoven with issues in Synapse and Neuron. Gary L. Westbrook has included themes like Agonist, Glutamate receptor, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Neurotransmitter in his Neurotransmission study.
His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, NMDA receptor, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Biophysics and Hippocampal formation. His Neuroscience study incorporates themes from Glutamate receptor and Neurotransmission. Gary L. Westbrook has researched NMDA receptor in several fields, including Electrophysiology and Ion channel.
The concepts of his Excitatory postsynaptic potential study are interwoven with issues in Dendritic spine and Postsynaptic potential. His Biophysics research includes themes of Competitive antagonist, Agonist, GABAA receptor and Biochemistry. Potassium channel is closely connected to Cell biology in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Hippocampal formation.
Neuroscience, Postsynaptic potential, Hippocampal formation, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Granule cell are his primary areas of study. His is involved in several facets of Neuroscience study, as is seen by his studies on Dentate gyrus, Optogenetics, Dendritic spine, Olfactory bulb and Hippocampus. His Postsynaptic potential study combines topics in areas such as Synaptic plasticity and Afterhyperpolarization.
His Afterhyperpolarization study is concerned with the larger field of Biophysics. The various areas that he examines in his Granule cell study include Reelin, Reeler and Proopiomelanocortin. His research in Calcium tackles topics such as Cell biology which are related to areas like Depolarization and Endocannabinoid system.
Gary L. Westbrook spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Granule cell, Dentate gyrus, Olfactory bulb and Neurogenesis. Gary L. Westbrook merges Neuroscience with Automatic gain control in his research. Gary L. Westbrook has researched Granule cell in several fields, including Proopiomelanocortin, Live cell imaging, Reeler and DAB1.
His research integrates issues of Synaptic plasticity, Biological neural network, Stimulus and Postsynaptic potential in his study of Olfactory bulb. His studies deal with areas such as Hippocampal formation, Status epilepticus, Optogenetics and Excitatory postsynaptic potential as well as Neurogenesis. His Optogenetics research includes elements of Dendritic spine, Entorhinal cortex, Synapse and Perforant path.
