Steven R. Laviolette focuses on Neuroscience, Ventral tegmental area, Dopamine, Nicotine and Conditioned place preference. His research on Neuroscience often connects related areas such as Psychosis. His Ventral tegmental area study contributes to a more complete understanding of Dopaminergic.
His study looks at the relationship between Dopamine and topics such as Addiction, which overlap with Neurotransmitter, Central nervous system and Neurochemical. Steven R. Laviolette has researched Nicotine in several fields, including NMDA receptor, Glutamate receptor, Receptor, Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor and Acetylcholine receptor. His Prefrontal cortex research incorporates themes from Neuroplasticity and Amygdala.
Neuroscience, Ventral tegmental area, Dopamine, Prefrontal cortex and Nucleus accumbens are his primary areas of study. Many of his studies on Neuroscience apply to Cannabinoid as well. His Ventral tegmental area research includes themes of GABAergic, Nicotine and GABAA receptor.
He combines subjects such as Psychosis, Fear conditioning, Pharmacology and Opiate with his study of Dopamine. Steven R. Laviolette has included themes like Associative learning, Cognitive psychology, Recall and Schizophrenia in his Prefrontal cortex study. His studies deal with areas such as Medium spiny neuron, Electrophysiology and Mesolimbic pathway as well as Nucleus accumbens.
Steven R. Laviolette mainly focuses on Neuroscience, Anxiety, Cannabidiol, Nicotine and Psychosis. His research brings together the fields of Schizophrenia and Neuroscience. His research in Schizophrenia intersects with topics in Cholinergic, Cholinergic neuron, Midbrain, Conditioned place preference and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential.
His Nicotine research focuses on Mood and how it connects with Addiction, Mood disorders and Substance abuse. In his research, Psychotomimetic and Fear conditioning is intimately related to Premovement neuronal activity, which falls under the overarching field of Dopamine. His Ventral tegmental area research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Peroxisome, Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor and Pharmacology.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Trophoblast, Placenta, Dopamine and Premovement neuronal activity. His work deals with themes such as Prepulse inhibition and Schizophrenia, which intersect with Neuroscience. His work in the fields of Placental insufficiency overlaps with other areas such as GLUT1, Mitochondrion, Cell biology and Endoplasmic reticulum.
His study in Ventral tegmental area and Nucleus accumbens is carried out as part of his Dopamine studies. Ventral tegmental area is often connected to Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol in his work. His Premovement neuronal activity study incorporates themes from Fear conditioning, Psychotomimetic, Psychosis, Cannabidiol and Nicotine.
