Gina G. Turrigiano mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Synaptic plasticity, Synaptic scaling, Metaplasticity and Homeostatic plasticity. Her Neuroscience study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Nonsynaptic plasticity. Her Nonsynaptic plasticity study combines topics in areas such as Heterosynaptic plasticity and Homosynaptic plasticity.
Her studies in Synaptic plasticity integrate themes in fields like Brain-derived neurotrophic factor, Synapse and Postsynaptic potential. The various areas that Gina G. Turrigiano examines in her Homeostatic plasticity study include Intrinsic plasticity, Cortical neurons, Cortical circuits and Cellular neuroscience. Her work in Synaptic fatigue addresses issues such as Synaptic augmentation, which are connected to fields such as Post-tetanic potentiation and Cell biology.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Synaptic scaling, Synaptic plasticity, Homeostatic plasticity and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. Her Neuroscience research includes themes of Nonsynaptic plasticity, Long-term potentiation, Metaplasticity and Postsynaptic potential. Gina G. Turrigiano has researched Nonsynaptic plasticity in several fields, including Post-tetanic potentiation, Homosynaptic plasticity and Anti-Hebbian learning.
Many of her studies involve connections with topics such as AMPA receptor and Synaptic scaling. The Synaptic plasticity study which covers Silent synapse that intersects with Long-term depression. Gina G. Turrigiano interconnects Intrinsic plasticity, Neuroplasticity, Nerve net and Homeostasis in the investigation of issues within Homeostatic plasticity.
Gina G. Turrigiano focuses on Neuroscience, Visual cortex, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Homeostatic plasticity and Hebbian theory. Her Neuroscience research includes elements of Intrinsic plasticity and Synaptic scaling. The concepts of her Synaptic scaling study are interwoven with issues in Associative learning, Gustatory cortex and Homeostasis.
Her Visual cortex study incorporates themes from Electrophysiology, Contrast, Premovement neuronal activity, Excitation inhibition and Optogenetics. Her research investigates the connection with Optogenetics and areas like Postsynaptic potential which intersect with concerns in Long-term potentiation. As part of the same scientific family, Gina G. Turrigiano usually focuses on Excitatory postsynaptic potential, concentrating on Gene knockdown and intersecting with Endogeny and Organelle.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Visual cortex, Neuroscience, Homeostatic plasticity, Premovement neuronal activity and Sensory system. Her Visual cortex research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Knockout mouse, Electrophysiology, Synaptic scaling and Contrast. Synaptic scaling is closely attributed to Sleep in non-human animals in her research.
Her Contrast research integrates issues from Adaptation, Neuronal firing and Darkness. Her Homeostatic plasticity research incorporates themes from Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. Her Monocular deprivation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Monocular, Optogenetics and Period.
