Neuroscience

Description:

Neuroscience is currently recognized as one of the most rapidly growing areas in cell biology. All human functions are influenced by neuroscience, but it also leads to a greater understanding of a wide variety of common conditions such as Down syndrome, autistic spectrum disorders (ASD), ADHD, addiction, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, brain tumors, epilepsy, the effects of stroke, for example, language loss, immune system disorders. A better understanding of neurological factors will help in designing drugs and other methods to treat and avoid these and many other health conditions. Scientific advances have made it possible for neuroscientists to study the structure, functions, development, anomalies, and ways of altering the nervous system.
