What is Experimental Neuroscience

Experimental neuroscience is an interdisciplinary effort to understand the molecular, cellular, physiological, structural and behavioral basis of normal function of the nervous system and its diseases.

Neuroscience is one of the most interdisciplinary fields, combining investigations in cellular and molecular biology, physiology, psychology, computational science, physics and chemistry to study the molecular, cellular, structural and functional basis of the nervous system and its disorders.

Experimental neuroscience spans molecular, cellular, and whole organism investigations. Training in neuroscience prepares students for research and/or teaching careers in neuroscience and the many related disciplines.
