His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Spinal cord, Spinothalamic tract, Anatomy and Stimulation. His Neuroscience study frequently links to other fields, such as Nociceptor. W. D. Willis has researched Spinothalamic tract in several fields, including Endocrinology, Hyperalgesia, Noxious stimulus and Lateral funiculus.
His Anatomy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Serotonergic cell groups, Nociception, Thalamus, Raphe nuclei and Dorsal raphe nucleus. W. D. Willis has researched Nociception in several fields, including Dorsum and Sensory system. His Stimulation study combines topics in areas such as Biological neural network, Central nervous system, Pharmacology and Sural nerve.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Spinal cord, Spinothalamic tract, Anatomy and Nociception. His Spinal cord research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Somatosensory system, Endocrinology, Central nervous system, Internal medicine and Raphe nuclei. His Spinothalamic tract research includes themes of Receptive field, Noxious stimulus, Diencephalon, Stimulus and Lateral funiculus.
His work deals with themes such as Antidromic, Postsynaptic potential, Reflex and Visceral pain, which intersect with Anatomy. His research in Nociception intersects with topics in Capsaicin and Electrophysiology. His research investigates the connection between Hyperalgesia and topics such as Anesthesia that intersect with problems in Pharmacology.
W. D. Willis focuses on Capsaicin, Pharmacology, Central nervous system, Neuroscience and Spinal cord. His studies in Capsaicin integrate themes in fields like Anesthesia and Endocrinology. W. D. Willis has included themes like Spinal Cord Dorsal Horn, Electrophysiology and Nociception in his Central nervous system study.
His research investigates the link between Neuroscience and topics such as Receptor that cross with problems in Glycine. His Spinal cord study incorporates themes from Substance P and Anatomy. His Anatomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Nerve injury, Postsynaptic potential, Spinothalamic tract and Visceral pain.
W. D. Willis mainly focuses on Central nervous system, Nociception, Noxious stimulus, Spinal cord and Capsaicin. To a larger extent, W. D. Willis studies Neuroscience with the aim of understanding Central nervous system. His Noxious stimulus research incorporates themes from Anesthesia and Hyperalgesia, Allodynia.
The various areas that he examines in his Spinal cord study include NMDA receptor, Protein phosphorylation, CNQX and Phosphorylation. His Capsaicin study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Endocrinology, Nitric oxide and Nitric oxide synthase. His work carried out in the field of Anatomy brings together such families of science as Ventrobasal complex, Nucleus, Thalamus and Postsynaptic potential.
