Neuroscience Definition

Neuroscience is the study of how the nervous systems develops, its structure and what it does. The most fundamental property of the brain is connectivity. Canadian psychologist Hebb (Hebb, 1949): “Neurons that fire together, wire together” (Löwel 1992), that associated activity creates inter-connection amongst single and groups of neurons. The aim of neuroscience is to understand underlying mechanisms of the neurons, their interaction and the overall architecture of the brain, but also the functional processes of the brain, stretching the areas of inquiry to human cognition and mind.
