Her scientific interests lie mostly in Dopamine, Neuroscience, Addiction, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. Her studies in Dopamine integrate themes in fields like Methylphenidate and Pharmacology. Her Pharmacology study incorporates themes from Dopamine Plasma Membrane Transport Proteins and Mechanism of action.
Her Addiction research includes themes of Nucleus accumbens, Prefrontal cortex and Substance abuse. Her Internal medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Alcohol and Detoxification. Her studies deal with areas such as Nuclear medicine, Neurotransmitter and Radioligand as well as Raclopride.
Nora D. Volkow focuses on Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Dopamine, Endocrinology and Addiction. Her work in Human brain, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Brain mapping, Orbitofrontal cortex and Neuroimaging is related to Neuroscience. Her work carried out in the field of Internal medicine brings together such families of science as Alcohol and Positron emission tomography.
The various areas that Nora D. Volkow examines in her Dopamine study include Methylphenidate and Pharmacology. She interconnects Receptor and Anesthesia in the investigation of issues within Endocrinology. Her research integrates issues of Drug, Prefrontal cortex and Clinical psychology in her study of Addiction.
Her primary areas of study are Psychiatry, Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Addiction and MEDLINE. Her Psychiatry study incorporates themes from Opioid use disorder, Opioid and Public health. Her studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Anterior cingulate cortex, Endocrinology and Alcohol use disorder.
Endocrinology is a component of her Dopamine and Striatum studies. Her Dopamine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Placebo and Methylphenidate. In her work, Obesity and Cannabis Dependence is strongly intertwined with Clinical psychology, which is a subfield of Addiction.
Nora D. Volkow mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Addiction, Psychiatry, Opioid use disorder and Opioid. Her study in Neuroscience focuses on Human brain, Functional connectivity, Brain activity and meditation, Neurocognitive and Premovement neuronal activity. The concepts of her Addiction study are interwoven with issues in Orbitofrontal cortex, Nucleus accumbens, Dopamine, Glutamatergic and Neuroimaging.
Nora D. Volkow combines subjects such as Reward system and Amygdala with her study of Dopamine. The various areas that Nora D. Volkow examines in her Psychiatry study include Health services research, Public health and MEDLINE. While the research belongs to areas of Health care, Nora D. Volkow spends her time largely on the problem of Internal medicine, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Anterior cingulate cortex.
