Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary branch of biology, deals with the study of the nervous system scientifically. It combines the study of physiology, anatomy, cytology, developmental biology, molecular biology and psychology to study and understand properties and basics of neurons and neural circuits. It also includes understanding of memory, perception, behaviour, learning and consciousness.

Neuroscientists are the one who specializes in the field of Neuroscience. The techniques used by neuroscientist confront drastic change in it from molecular to cellular studies of a single neuron to imaging of motor and sensory tasks of brain.

Due to scientific development, the area of Neuroscience has broadened to include various approaches and methods used to study the nervous system on different parameters.

Neuroscience has also given rise to neuroethicsneuroeducation and neurolaw.
