Nick J. Spencer mostly deals with Anatomy, Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Neuroscience and Peristalsis. The concepts of his Anatomy study are interwoven with issues in Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Stimulation, Tetrodotoxin and Distension. He is involved in the study of Endocrinology that focuses on Small intestine in particular.
The Neuroscience study which covers Myenteric plexus that intersects with Cell biology and Enterochromaffin cell. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Guinea pig, Motility and Reflex. Nick J. Spencer usually deals with Reflex and limits it to topics linked to Neurotransmission and Biophysics and Electrophysiology.
Nick J. Spencer spends much of his time researching Anatomy, Internal medicine, Peristalsis, Neuroscience and Enteric nervous system. His work carried out in the field of Anatomy brings together such families of science as Distension, Guinea pig, Reflex and Nociception. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Gastroenterology, Ex vivo and Endocrinology.
His Endocrinology research incorporates elements of Electrophysiology, Intracellular and Motility. Nick J. Spencer combines subjects such as Large intestine, Contraction, Biomedical engineering and Pathology with his study of Peristalsis. Nick J. Spencer has included themes like Migrating motor complex, Small intestine, Stimulation, Calretinin and Myenteric plexus in his Enteric nervous system study.
Nick J. Spencer mainly focuses on Enteric nervous system, Neuroscience, Anatomy, Motility and Cell biology. His study in Enteric nervous system is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Migrating motor complex, Calretinin, Smooth muscle contraction and Retrograde tracing. In general Neuroscience study, his work on Stimulation and Optogenetics often relates to the realm of Similar distribution, thereby connecting several areas of interest.
His Anatomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Submucosa and Spinal cord. His work deals with themes such as Endocrinology, Internal medicine and Serotonin, which intersect with Motility. The various areas that Nick J. Spencer examines in his Cell biology study include Receptor, Cell type, Peristalsis and Bone marrow.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Enteric nervous system, Pathology, Neuroscience, Guinea pig and Distal colon. Nick J. Spencer interconnects Biophysics, Biological neural network, Migrating motor complex and Neuromuscular transmission in the investigation of issues within Enteric nervous system. His Pathology research incorporates themes from Gastrointestinal tract, Peristalsis and Smooth muscle.
His Distal colon research is included under the broader classification of Internal medicine. In his research, Anatomy is intimately related to Spinal cord, which falls under the overarching field of Calretinin. His Anatomy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Nociceptor and Sensory nerve.
