What do neuroscientists actually do? What all are the different occupations in the field of neuroscience?

I have always been interested in the nervous system and the brain, as well as how they work and affect the way people act or behave. I am interested in the somewhat psychological portions of neuroscience but have always had trouble finding an occupation that really fits exactly what i have always dreamed of doing. #psychology #neuroscience #neurology #cognitive-psychology

Hi Issac,

I work in the field of Neuroscience, as a Neuroeducator Researcher, that studies how the brain learns. It´s a very interesting field.

There are many different branches of neuroscience, each focusing on specific topics. Some areas of neuroscience include:

  • Developmental neuroscience describes how the brain grows and changes.

  • Cognitive neuroscience involves studying how the brain creates and controls thought, language, problem solving, and memory.

  • Molecular and cellular neuroscience explores the genes, proteins, and other molecules involved in the functioning of neurons.

  • Behavioral neuroscience examines the brain areas and processes underlying the behavior of animals and humans.

  • Clinical neuroscience is the area of study in which medical specialists such as neurologists and psychiatrists use basic neuroscience research findings to explore how to treat and prevent neurological disorders and to rehabilitate patients whose nervous system has been damaged or injured.
