Isaura Tavares mainly focuses on Nociception, Spinal cord, Neuroscience, Anatomy and Reticular formation. Her Nociception research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Analgesic, Kyotorphin and Neuroprotection. Her Spinal cord research includes elements of Hindlimb, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Ventral reticular nucleus.
Her research investigates the connection between Neuroscience and topics such as Medulla that intersect with issues in Chronic pain. The various areas that Isaura Tavares examines in her Reticular formation study include Spinal trigeminal nucleus, Nociceptor and Lateral reticular nucleus. Her study in Nociceptor is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Rostral ventromedial medulla and Brainstem.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Nociception, Spinal cord, Neuroscience, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. Her studies in Nociception integrate themes in fields like Medulla, Stimulation and Brainstem. She has included themes like Rostral ventrolateral medulla and Rostral ventromedial medulla in her Medulla study.
Her Spinal cord research incorporates themes from Anesthesia, Central nervous system, Medulla oblongata, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Anatomy. Her work on GABAB receptor expands to the thematically related Neuroscience. Her Reticular formation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Spinal trigeminal nucleus and Nociceptor.
Isaura Tavares mainly focuses on Pharmacology, Nociception, Neuroscience, Endocrinology and Internal medicine. Isaura Tavares interconnects Agonist, Kyotorphin and Excitatory postsynaptic potential in the investigation of issues within Pharmacology. Her Nociception study incorporates themes from Medulla and Spinal cord.
Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Brainstem, Diffuse noxious inhibitory control, Serotonin, Reticular formation and Medulla oblongata. Neuroscience is often connected to Dementia in her work. The Endocrinology study combines topics in areas such as Receptor and Angiopoietin receptor.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Nociception, Neuroscience, Spinal cord, Chronic pain and Facilitation. Her Nociception research integrates issues from Anesthesia, Hippocampus, Kyotorphin and Pharmacology. She combines subjects such as Analgesic and Dementia with her study of Neuroscience.
Isaura Tavares has researched Spinal cord in several fields, including Neuropathic pain, Dorsal reticular nucleus, Medullary cavity, Diabetic neuropathy and Medulla. Isaura Tavares interconnects Central nervous system, Reticular formation, Brainstem, Diffuse noxious inhibitory control and Serotonin in the investigation of issues within Medulla. Her Chronic pain research incorporates elements of Noradrenergic neurotransmission and Medulla oblongata.
