Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and nerves.

It encompasses a wide range of research areas, including molecular and cellular neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, and behavioral neuroscience.

One of the main goals of neuroscience is to understand how the brain and nervous system work and how they give rise to behavior, thought, and emotion.

To this end, neuroscientists use a variety of techniques, including imaging, electrophysiology, and genetics.

One of the most important breakthroughs in neuroscience in recent years has been the development of imaging techniques that allow researchers to see the living brain in action.
