Robert C. Malenka focuses on Neuroscience, Synaptic plasticity, Long-term potentiation, Long-term depression and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. His research integrates issues of AMPA receptor, Silent synapse and Metaplasticity in his study of Neuroscience. His work is dedicated to discovering how Synaptic plasticity, Memoria are connected with Experimental model and Calcium signaling and other disciplines.
His studies deal with areas such as Postsynaptic potential and Neurotransmission as well as Long-term potentiation. His Neurotransmission study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Protein Phosphatase Inhibitor, Neurotransmitter and Cell biology. His Excitatory postsynaptic potential research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hippocampal formation, Hippocampus, Neuron and Anatomy.
His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Long-term potentiation, Synaptic plasticity, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Neurotransmission. His study in Neuroscience is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both NMDA receptor, AMPA receptor, Long-term depression and Postsynaptic potential. Robert C. Malenka interconnects Hippocampal formation, Synapse, Hippocampus and Cell biology in the investigation of issues within Long-term potentiation.
Synaptic plasticity is frequently linked to Anatomy in his study. His Excitatory postsynaptic potential research incorporates elements of Nucleus accumbens and Dopamine. The concepts of his Neurotransmission study are interwoven with issues in Electrophysiology and Neurotransmitter.
Robert C. Malenka mostly deals with Neuroscience, Optogenetics, Nucleus accumbens, Cell biology and Long-term potentiation. Dopamine, Biological neural network, Excitatory postsynaptic potential, Ventral tegmental area and Neuron are among the areas of Neuroscience where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. His Excitatory postsynaptic potential research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Synapse and Patch clamp.
His Nucleus accumbens research integrates issues from Medium spiny neuron, Addiction, Basolateral amygdala and Deep brain stimulation. The various areas that he examines in his Long-term potentiation study include Synaptic plasticity, AMPA receptor and Postsynaptic potential. Robert C. Malenka has researched Postsynaptic potential in several fields, including NMDA receptor, Signal transduction and Neurotransmission.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Cell biology, Nucleus accumbens, Optogenetics and Dopamine. His study in Ventral tegmental area, Neuron, Biological neural network, Electrophysiology and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential is carried out as part of his studies in Neuroscience. His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Long-term potentiation, Exocytosis, Postsynaptic potential and AMPA receptor.
His research in Long-term potentiation intersects with topics in NMDA receptor and Postsynaptic density. In the field of NMDA receptor, his study on Long-term depression overlaps with subjects such as Nanotechnology. His Nucleus accumbens research also works with subjects such as
