His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuropeptide Y receptor, Alcohol dependence and Central nervous system. His work deals with themes such as Habituation and Peptide, which intersect with Internal medicine. His Endocrinology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ethanol and Agonist.
His Neuropeptide Y receptor study incorporates themes from Endogeny, Corticosterone and Anxiolytic. His Alcohol dependence research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Acamprosate, Naltrexone and Psychiatry, Alcohol abuse. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cerebral cortex, Dopamine and Cortex.
Markus Heilig mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Pharmacology, Alcohol dependence and Receptor. His Internal medicine course of study focuses on Alcohol and Anesthesia. The various areas that Markus Heilig examines in his Endocrinology study include Neuropeptide, Neuropeptide Y receptor and Antagonist.
Within one scientific family, Markus Heilig focuses on topics pertaining to Nucleus accumbens under Pharmacology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Ventral tegmental area. His studies deal with areas such as Genetics, Psychiatry, Alcohol abuse, Anxiety and Clinical psychology as well as Alcohol dependence. His study in Addiction and Substance abuse are all subfields of Psychiatry.
His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Alcohol, Alcohol use disorder and Pharmacology. Markus Heilig has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genetic variation and Depression. Markus Heilig does research in Endocrinology, focusing on Amygdala specifically.
His Alcohol research incorporates themes from Psychiatry, Drug, Ghrelin and Opioid. His research integrates issues of Nucleus accumbens and Inverse agonist in his study of Pharmacology. His work carried out in the field of Receptor brings together such families of science as Hormone and Animal studies.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Pharmacology, Alcohol, Ghrelin, Prefrontal cortex and Internal medicine. His Pharmacology research includes elements of Cannabinoid, Fear conditioning, Endocannabinoid system and Anxiogenic. His study in Alcohol is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Psychosocial, Global health, MEDLINE and Mass screening.
His research investigates the connection between Ghrelin and topics such as Alcohol use disorder that intersect with issues in Substance abuse, Clinical psychology, Neuroimaging, Neural correlates of consciousness and Functional magnetic resonance imaging. The Prefrontal cortex study combines topics in areas such as Somatosensory system, Superior temporal gyrus, Sensory system and Supramarginal gyrus. Internal medicine connects with themes related to Endocrinology in his study.
