What is neuroscience?

Neuroscience, the study of the nervous system, advances the understanding of human thought, emotion, and behavior. Neuroscientists use tools ranging from computers to special dyes to examine molecules, nerve cells, networks, brain systems and behavior. From these studies, they learn how the nervous system develops and functions normally and what goes wrong in neurological disorders.
