Karin N. Westlund mostly deals with Spinal cord, Anatomy, Neuroscience, Endocrinology and Internal medicine. Her studies in Spinal cord integrate themes in fields like Somatosensory system, Allodynia, Spinothalamic tract and Visceral pain. Her research in Anatomy intersects with topics in Immunocytochemistry, Nociception, Thalamus, Reflex and Nucleus raphe magnus.
Her work carried out in the field of Nociception brings together such families of science as Dorsum and Central nervous system. Her Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Serotonergic and Serotonergic cell groups. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Glutamate receptor, Substance P, Calcitonin gene-related peptide and Arthritis.
Karin N. Westlund spends much of her time researching Spinal cord, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Anatomy and Neuroscience. The various areas that Karin N. Westlund examines in her Spinal cord study include Central nervous system and Spinothalamic tract, Nociception. The concepts of her Nociception study are interwoven with issues in Anesthesia, Stimulation and Pharmacology.
Her Endocrinology research incorporates themes from Receptor, Peptide hormone, Calcitonin gene-related peptide and Hyperalgesia. Her Anatomy study combines topics in areas such as Immunocytochemistry, Pathology and Thalamus. The Neuroscience study which covers Serotonergic cell groups that intersects with Reticular formation.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Neuropathic pain, Pharmacology, Inflammation, Endocrinology and Internal medicine. The study incorporates disciplines such as Receptor, Nociception, Downregulation and upregulation, Calcium channel and Antibody in addition to Pharmacology. The Downregulation and upregulation study combines topics in areas such as Lumbar Spinal Cord, Spinal cord, Tyrosine kinase and NMDA receptor.
Her Inflammation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Vector, Urothelium and Stimulation. She has included themes like Amino acid, Agonist and Arthritis in her Endocrinology study. Karin N. Westlund has researched Anesthesia in several fields, including Pharmacotherapy and Allodynia.
Her primary areas of investigation include Pharmacology, Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Inflammation and Hyperalgesia. Her study in Pharmacology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Anesthesia and Stimulation. She combines subjects such as Nociceptin receptor, Pancreatitis and Agonist with her study of Endocrinology.
In general Internal medicine study, her work on Insulin and Channel blocker often relates to the realm of Beta cell, thereby connecting several areas of interest. Her Hyperalgesia research includes themes of Threshold of pain and Chronic pain, Neuroscience. Her research on Neuroscience focuses in particular on Locus coeruleus.
