Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord, and nerves throughout the body. The goal is to understand how the nervous system functions, how it influences behavior and cognition, and how it is involved in various physiological processes. Neuroscientists combine techniques such as brain imaging, electrophysiology, and molecular biology to study the structure and function of neurons and neural networks. Topics include perception, learning, memory, emotions, and the development and treatment of neurological disorders. Neuroscience plays an important role in advancing our understanding of the brain and its complex workings, contributing to fields such as medicine, psychology and artificial intelligence.
