What Is Neuro-Science?

Also called as neural science, neuroscience is a study of the nervous system, marking its structure, development, and functions. The main focus in neuroscience is centered on the brain as well as its cognitive functions and behaviors. Apart from studying common functioning of these cognitive functions as well as the nervous system, neuroscience also deals with disorders that are neurological, neuro-developmental, and psychiatric in nature.

Traditionally, neuroscience is classified as a section of biology. Today however, the definition of neuroscience has extended to several other interdisciplinary sciences like mathematics, engineering, medicine, computer science, linguistics, philosophy, chemistry, and psychology. Considered a similar science to neurobiology, neuroscience refers only to the nervous system while neurobiology deals with the biology aspects of the same.

The study of neuroscience is no longer restricted to the present day functions and disorders of the nervous system. The study of neuroscience has expanded to cover medical aspects as well as molecular, cellular, functional, and evolutionary standpoints. Modern neuroscience has expanded significantly in the past few centuries and now boasts of several branches based on the study subjects and research areas. Some of these branches include clinical neuroscience, cellular neuroscience, effective neuroscience, computational neuroscience, behavioral neuroscience, cultural neuroscience, molecular neuroscience, social neuroscience and many more. It also includes neuroengineering, neuroinformatics, paleoneurology, neuroimaging, and neurolinguistics.
