His primary scientific interests are in Physical therapy, Chronic pain, Neuroscience, McGill Pain Questionnaire and Anesthesia. His work on Pain catastrophizing as part of general Physical therapy research is frequently linked to MEDLINE, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His research in Chronic pain intersects with topics in Inflammation and Hypothalamus, Endocrinology.
His Neuroscience study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Noxious stimulus. His study in McGill Pain Questionnaire is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Clinical pain, Pain experience, Clinical psychology and Rating scale. His Anesthesia research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Autotomy and Subcutaneous injection.
Ronald Melzack mainly investigates Anesthesia, Physical therapy, Neuroscience, McGill Pain Questionnaire and Chronic pain. His Anesthesia research incorporates elements of Tonic, Formalin Test and Pharmacology. In his study, Phantom limb is strongly linked to Physical medicine and rehabilitation, which falls under the umbrella field of Physical therapy.
His study looks at the intersection of Neuroscience and topics like Noxious stimulus with Nociceptor and Thalamus. Ronald Melzack usually deals with McGill Pain Questionnaire and limits it to topics linked to Placebo and Acupuncture and Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. His Stimulation study combines topics in areas such as Stimulus and Central nervous system.
His primary areas of investigation include Physical therapy, Neuroscience, Chronic pain, Sensory system and McGill Pain Questionnaire. His Physical therapy research includes elements of Psychological testing and Psychometrics. His research integrates issues of Psychological evaluation and Endocrinology in his study of Chronic pain.
His Sensory system research includes themes of Anesthesia, Brachial plexus, Perception, Scalp and NeuroMatrix. The Anesthesia study combines topics in areas such as Drug interaction and Amputation. His McGill Pain Questionnaire study incorporates themes from Analgesic agents, Scale and Rating scale.
Ronald Melzack focuses on Chronic pain, Physical therapy, Neuroscience, Sensory system and McGill Pain Questionnaire. His Chronic pain course of study focuses on Anxiety and Stimulation and Disease. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Postoperative pain and Headaches.
Ronald Melzack has included themes like Noxious stimulus and Diffuse noxious inhibitory control in his Neuroscience study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Somatosensory system and Phantom limb. His McGill Pain Questionnaire research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Analgesic agents, Scale and Rating scale.
