His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Anatomy, Spinal cord, Hindlimb and Motor neuron. The various areas that Michael J. O'Donovan examines in his Neuroscience study include Kynurenic acid and Picrotoxin. His work on Motor unit is typically connected to Muscle biopsy as part of general Anatomy study, connecting several disciplines of science.
His study in Spinal cord is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Bursting, Central nervous system, Antidromic and Rhythm. His work carried out in the field of Hindlimb brings together such families of science as CATS, Nerve root, Cauda equina, Electromyography and Embryo. Motor neuron and Electrophysiology are commonly linked in his work.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Spinal cord, Anatomy, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Motor neuron. His research on Neuroscience frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Central pattern generator. His work on Renshaw cell as part of his general Spinal cord study is frequently connected to Cord, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.
Michael J. O'Donovan combines subjects such as Treadmill and CATS with his study of Anatomy. Michael J. O'Donovan combines subjects such as Chemical synaptic transmission, Glutamatergic, Neuron, Bicuculline and Depolarization with his study of Excitatory postsynaptic potential. His work deals with themes such as Biophysics and Intracellular, which intersect with Electrophysiology.
Michael J. O'Donovan mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Spinal cord, Central pattern generator, Biophysics and Anatomy. His work on Stimulation and Depression as part of general Neuroscience research is frequently linked to Nematode caenorhabditis elegans, Spinal muscular atrophy and Gate control, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work on Spinal circuits as part of general Spinal cord study is frequently linked to Population, bridging the gap between disciplines.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Locomotor rhythm, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Calcium imaging in addition to Central pattern generator. His Biophysics research includes themes of Cellular membrane and Electrophysiology. His studies deal with areas such as Choline acetyltransferase and Rhythm as well as Anatomy.
