Neuroscience (or neurobiology) is the scientific study of the nervous system. It is the branch of biology that investigates the molecular, cellular, developmental, functional, evolutionary, computational, psychosocial and medical aspects of the brain.

The neuron[change | change source]

The basic neuronal design matches both anatomical abnormality and normality within a certain reference of creation because while it is both natural and unnatural it is also broken, dimished, small and complex and as so it is immense in its way of operating within the skull, brain membranes and brain itself. The brain is a structure made up of billions of neurons that work together to form a matrix within a complex of organs termed by their anatomical structure: corpus callosum, basal ganglia, lower anatomical brain region and upper anatomical brain region.

Research themes[change | change source]

Neuroscience research from different areas can also be seen as focusing on a set of specific themes and questions. (Some of these are taken from http://www.northwestern.edu/nuin/fac/index.htm)
