Experts on brain science

Brain science, also known as neuroscience, is the study of the structure and function of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. It aims to understand how the brain processes information, generates behavior and perception, and mediates communication between different parts of the body. Brain science encompasses various fields such as cellular neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, developmental neuroscience, and systems neuroscience. The study of the brain involves interdisciplinary approaches, including anatomy, physiology, genetics, psychology, and computer science, among others. Advances in brain science have led to new treatments for neurological and psychiatric disorders, as well as a deeper understanding of the human brain and behavior.
