Neuroscience is the field of study examining brain development and function, and its connection to regulating and influencing a wide range of behavior. The study of neuroscience examines topics such as neuroanatomy, neuropsychopharmacology, neurophysiology, molecular neurobiology, and neuroendocrinology. Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field that requires experience and training in biology, genetics, physiology, calculus, molecular biology, chemistry, physics, psychology, and research design and analysis.
