1983 - Fellow of Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Cell biology, Retina and Molecular biology. The concepts of his Endocrinology study are interwoven with issues in Myenteric plexus, Calcitonin gene-related peptide and Peptide. His research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Golgi apparatus and Developmental biology.
Nicholas C. Brecha has included themes like Opiate alkaloid, Dopaminergic, Receptor, Biochemistry and Substance P in his Cell biology study. Many of his studies on Retina involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Voltage-dependent calcium channel. His Molecular biology research includes elements of In situ hybridization, Northern blot, GABAA receptor, Glycine Plasma Membrane Transport Proteins and Synaptic vesicle.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Retina, Cell biology, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Neuroscience. His work in Retina addresses issues such as Anatomy, which are connected to fields such as Biophysics and Nucleus. Nicholas C. Brecha combines subjects such as Cell, Biochemistry, Voltage-dependent calcium channel, Retinal ganglion and Synaptic vesicle with his study of Cell biology.
His research investigates the connection between Endocrinology and topics such as Enkephalin that intersect with issues in Opioid peptide. His Inner plexiform layer study also includes
Cell biology, Retina, Neuroscience, Voltage-dependent calcium channel and Retinal ganglion are his primary areas of study. Particularly relevant to Axon is his body of work in Cell biology. His Retina research integrates issues from Molecular biology, Retinal and Anatomy, Optic nerve.
His work on Receptive field, GABAergic and Synapse as part of general Neuroscience study is frequently connected to Microglia, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. Ganglion cell layer is closely connected to Inner nuclear layer in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Amacrine cell. While the research belongs to areas of Patch clamp, Nicholas C. Brecha spends his time largely on the problem of Pharmacology, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Internal medicine, Endocrinology, MAPK/ERK pathway, Opioid and DAMGO.
His primary areas of investigation include Retina, Neuroscience, Cell biology, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Voltage-dependent calcium channel. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Axotomy and Calcium channel. His Inhibitory postsynaptic potential research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Kainate receptor, Synaptic vesicle and Neurotransmission.
His Voltage-dependent calcium channel research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Receptor, Dopamine and Dopamine receptor D1. As part of the same scientific family, Nicholas C. Brecha usually focuses on Amacrine cell, concentrating on RBPMS and intersecting with Ganglion cell layer. His work in Pharmacology covers topics such as Opioid receptor which are related to areas like Endocrinology.
