Neuroscience, Rostral ventromedial medulla, Nucleus accumbens, Ventral tegmental area and Dopamine are his primary areas of study. His Neuroscience study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Nucleus raphe magnus and Nociception. His Rostral ventromedial medulla study incorporates themes from Morphine, Medulla, GABAergic and Medulla oblongata.
His Nucleus accumbens research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Neurotransmitter, Basal ganglia, Prefrontal cortex, Chronic pain and Back pain. His Ventral tegmental area study combines topics in areas such as Substantia nigra, Pars compacta, Limbic system and Agonist. His study in Dopamine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biological neural network and Behavioral choice.
Howard L. Fields mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Anesthesia, Rostral ventromedial medulla, Nociception and Nucleus accumbens. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Opioid and Nucleus raphe magnus. His Nucleus raphe magnus research integrates issues from Stimulation, Reticular formation, Dorsal raphe nucleus and Brainstem.
He combines subjects such as -Naloxone, Endocrinology, Medulla oblongata and Neuron with his study of Rostral ventromedial medulla. In Nociception, Howard L. Fields works on issues like Spinal cord, which are connected to Anatomy. His Nucleus accumbens research incorporates themes from Basal ganglia, Prefrontal cortex, Electrophysiology and Conditioned place preference.
Howard L. Fields mainly investigates Neuroscience, Nucleus accumbens, Ventral tegmental area, Dopamine and Internal medicine. His Neuroscience research includes elements of Agonist, μ-opioid receptor and DAMGO. His research on Nucleus accumbens also deals with topics like
His Ventral tegmental area research includes themes of GABAergic, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Neurotransmitter and GABAA receptor. His Dopamine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Impulsivity, Anatomy and Limbic system. His research in Internal medicine focuses on subjects like Endocrinology, which are connected to Opioid peptide, Endogenous opioid, Self-administration, Allodynia and Antagonist.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Nucleus accumbens, Dopamine, Ventral tegmental area and Chronic pain. Howard L. Fields has researched Neuroscience in several fields, including μ-opioid receptor, Opioid and Noxious stimulus. The research on Endocrinology and Internal medicine is part of his Nucleus accumbens project.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Periaqueductal gray, Midbrain, Biological neural network, Behavioral choice and Amygdala in addition to Dopamine. The various areas that Howard L. Fields examines in his Threshold of pain study include Hyperalgesia and Rostral ventromedial medulla. Howard L. Fields interconnects Anesthesia and Nerve injury in the investigation of issues within Rostral ventromedial medulla.
