What is the difference between Neuroscience and Neurobiology?

I hope you are doing well. Biology is a general term which focuses on the study of life and has many subdivisions. The same thing can be said about Neuroscience because you can study the chemical, psychological, and even behavioral aspect of the nervous system. Neuroscience is the general term used to study the nervous system in terms of structure and function. Neurobiology is more specific and looks at the biology behind the nervous system. I hope this adds some clarification between the two.
Here is a link provided by Georgetown University explaining the specifics on Neuroscience: https://neuro.georgetown.edu/about-neuroscience/
That's a great question. Simply put, neuroscience is the study of the nervous system and the brain. On the other hand, neurobiology is focused on studying the nervous system and biological brain function in humans as well as animals.
However, both of these fields study neurons so it can be easy to become confused sometimes :)
Have a great day!

Try looking in different science recommended websites like MIT news.
In my experience the more you search for informations and suggestions from professionals in the field, the best approach and idea you will have.
When I was studying psychology I was really interested in Neuropschology... Try looking at different perspectives :)
