His primary areas of study are Dopamine, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience and Serotonin. His biological study deals with issues like Basal ganglia, which deal with fields such as Functional magnetic resonance imaging. His research in the fields of Catecholamine, Cingulate cortex and Limbic system overlaps with other disciplines such as Tyrosine and Phenylalanine.
His Serotonin research incorporates themes from Temporal cortex, Mood, Anterior cingulate cortex, Prefrontal cortex and Depression. His research investigates the connection with Raclopride and areas like Amphetamine which intersect with concerns in Neurochemical and Pharmacology. His Ventral striatum research focuses on Putamen and how it connects with Dopaminergic.
Marco Leyton focuses on Internal medicine, Dopamine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience and Psychiatry. His Internal medicine research includes themes of Positron emission tomography and Oncology. His Dopamine research includes elements of Addiction and Sensitization.
Many of his research projects under Endocrinology are closely connected to Phenylalanine and Heart rate with Phenylalanine and Heart rate, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His study in Psychiatry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Young adult and Self-administration. His Raclopride research incorporates elements of Neurochemical and Ventral striatum.
Marco Leyton mainly investigates Neuroscience, Positron emission tomography, Dopamine, Internal medicine and Dopaminergic. His Neuroimaging and Transcranial magnetic stimulation study, which is part of a larger body of work in Neuroscience, is frequently linked to White matter and Mutation, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work deals with themes such as Healthy volunteers, Neuroplasticity, Hippocampus and Neurochemical, which intersect with Dopamine.
The various areas that Marco Leyton examines in his Internal medicine study include Endocrinology and Human brain. In general Endocrinology study, his work on Substantia nigra often relates to the realm of Parallel study, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Dopaminergic research integrates issues from Neurotransmitter and Functional connectivity.
His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Dopamine, Neuroscience, Endocrinology and Positron emission tomography. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Obsessive compulsive and Oncology. His Dopamine study frequently links to related topics such as Functional connectivity.
His Neuroscience study incorporates themes from Netrin and Schizophrenia. His Endocrinology study combines topics in areas such as Metabotropic glutamate receptor 5, Metabotropic glutamate receptor, Radioligand, Metabotropic receptor and Brain mapping. His work carried out in the field of Positron emission tomography brings together such families of science as Analysis of variance, Raphe nuclei, Serotonergic and Sertraline.
