Masao Ito spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Cerebellum, Flocculus, Long-term depression and Vestibulo–ocular reflex. His work on Neuroscience deals in particular with Climbing fiber, Parallel fiber, Cerebellar cortex, Purkinje cell and Motor learning. His biological study deals with issues like Golgi cell, which deal with fields such as Unipolar brush cell.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cognition, Axon, Central nervous system and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential. His study in the fields of Cerebellar flocculus under the domain of Flocculus overlaps with other disciplines such as Impulse. His Long-term depression research focuses on Synaptic plasticity and how it relates to Cellular mechanism and Neurotransmitter metabolism.
His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Cerebellum, Purkinje cell, Cerebellar cortex and Anatomy. His Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Parallel fiber, Climbing fiber and Flocculus study are his primary interests in Neuroscience. Masao Ito combines subjects such as Synaptic plasticity, Golgi cell, Neurotransmission, Motor learning and Long-term depression with his study of Cerebellum.
In general Purkinje cell study, his work on Mossy fiber often relates to the realm of Dendritic spine, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His studies in Cerebellar cortex integrate themes in fields like Synaptic contact, Biological neural network and Spinal cord. His Anatomy research includes themes of Vestibular system, Stimulation, Reflex, Medial vestibulospinal tract and Lateral vestibulospinal tract.
Masao Ito mainly investigates Neuroscience, Cerebellum, Cell biology, Purkinje cell and Motor learning. The concepts of his Neuroscience study are interwoven with issues in Synaptic scaling and Respiratory system. A large part of his Cerebellum studies is devoted to Climbing fiber.
His study looks at the relationship between Cell biology and fields such as AMPA receptor, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. The various areas that Masao Ito examines in his Motor learning study include Optokinetic reflex, Motor control and Parallel fiber. His research investigates the connection with Long-term depression and areas like Synaptic plasticity which intersect with concerns in Long-term potentiation.
His primary areas of investigation include Cerebellum, Neuroscience, Motor learning, Climbing fiber and Optokinetic reflex. His work on Parallel fiber as part of general Cerebellum research is frequently linked to Poison control, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. Masao Ito undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Neuroscience and Body movement through his research.
His Optokinetic reflex research incorporates themes from Knockout mouse, Electrophysiology, Cerebellar Purkinje cell and Cerebellar hemisphere. His work deals with themes such as Synaptic plasticity and Phenylbutyrate, which intersect with Long-term depression. His Arterial blood research includes elements of Neuromodulation, Periaqueductal gray, Orexin and Flocculus.
