What is Neuroscience?
The field of neuroscience explores the nervous system’s structure and function—and how it regulates almost all aspects of organisms, including our thoughts, behavior, sense of self, and response to environments.
The focus of neuroscientists’ work ranges: Some study how specific functions work in relation to the nervous system, while others research cellular processes, the underlying causes of drug addiction, brain activity during seizures, novel drug discovery, treatment methods for neurological disorders, or new clinical approaches.
