Melanopsin, Neuroscience, Intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells, Photopigment and Retinal ganglion are his primary areas of study. His Melanopsin research entails a greater understanding of Retina. Robert J. Lucas focuses mostly in the field of Neuroscience, narrowing it down to matters related to Anatomy and, in some cases, Retinal Rod Photoreceptor Cells and Retinal.
His work carried out in the field of Intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells brings together such families of science as Rhodopsin and Biophysics. His studies deal with areas such as Photosensitivity, Zebrafish, Regulation of gene expression, Opsin and Orthologous Gene as well as Photopigment. The various areas that Robert J. Lucas examines in his Retinal ganglion study include Light intensity, Visual system and Visual phototransduction.
His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Melanopsin, Retina, Intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells and Cell biology. His Neuroscience study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Retinal and Anatomy. To a larger extent, Robert J. Lucas studies Retinal ganglion with the aim of understanding Melanopsin.
His Retina research includes elements of Endocrinology and Internal medicine. Robert J. Lucas combines subjects such as Retinohypothalamic tract, Biophysics, Giant retinal ganglion cells and Photopic vision with his study of Intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells. His work focuses on many connections between Cell biology and other disciplines, such as Gene, that overlap with his field of interest in OPN5.
His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Melanopsin, Opsin, Retina and Cell biology. His research on Neuroscience often connects related topics like Spatial vision. His Melanopsin research incorporates elements of Luminance, Contrast, Rhythm, Intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells and Light intensity.
Robert J. Lucas has researched Opsin in several fields, including G protein-coupled receptor and Visual phototransduction. His Retina research incorporates themes from Retinal, Visual acuity, Neuron and Bright light. His Cell biology research integrates issues from Receptor, Bone morphogenetic protein, Optogenetics and Photopigment.
His primary areas of study are Melanopsin, Neuroscience, Opsin, Photopigment and Cell biology. Robert J. Lucas has included themes like Healthy volunteers, Reflex, Melatonin, Chromatic scale and Evening in his Melanopsin study. Many of his research projects under Neuroscience are closely connected to Light exposure with Light exposure, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.
His research integrates issues of Hormone and photoperiodism in his study of Opsin. The concepts of his Photopigment study are interwoven with issues in Evolutionary biology, Marine invertebrates, Protein tertiary structure and Intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells, Retinal ganglion. His Cell biology study incorporates themes from Embryonic stem cell and Flatworm.
