What is neuroscience?
Neuroscience is all about understanding the brain and its functions. Neuroscience is one of the most complex medical fields in which physicians and scientists work together to unlock the mysteries of the brain and central nervous system. The technology that neuroscience physicians use for diagnosis and treatment includes computerized imaging systems, state-of-the-art surgical procedures and the latest in medication therapies. The resulting explosion of information is rapidly increasing our basic understanding of brain structure and function, helping us discover treatments and cures for some neurological diseases. It's a time of discovery and unprecedented growth.
