Neuroscience Research Areas

Neuroscience represents one of the most fascinating and complex research areas. In terms of basic sciences, neuroscience is one of the last remaining major frontiers in science. Clinically, neurodegenerative diseases represent a major frontier in that these diseases are among the most devastating and intractable of diseases.
