Neuroscience is the study of how the nervous system develops, its structure, and what it does.  Neuroscientists focus on the brain and its impact on behavior and cognitive functions.  Not only is neuroscience concerned with the normal functioning of the nervous system, but also what happens to the nervous system when people have neurological, psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders.

Neuroscientists study the cellular, functional, evolutionary, computational, molecular, cellular and medical aspects of the nervous system.

According to Medilexicon’s medical dictionary, Neurosciences are:  “The scientific disciplines concerned with the development, structure, function, chemistry, pharmacology, clinical assessments, and pathology of the nervous system.”
