Why do nerve cells die when you develop Alzheimer’s disease? Are there really “left brain” and “right brain” people? Do epileptics have a nervous system that is wired differently? Finding answers to these and many other questions is the goal of neuroscience. This interdisciplinary field explores the development, structure, and behavioral consequences of the nervous system.
