Neuroscience is the study of how the nervous system develops, Neuroscience in today’s world has produced several Neuroscientists, and they focus on the brain and its impact on behavior and cognitive functions

Neuroscience is the subdivision of Biology and is often referred as Neurosciences in Plural. The History of Neuroscience dates back to that of ancient Egyptian era. They would remove the brain, but leave the heart in the body. From 1960 onwards, the study in this field made huge advances, mainly because of the progress of science itself.

Study of neuroscience produce the Neuroscientists and they study the development and function of the nervous system. They can specialize in one part of the nervous system or can focus their research on specific behavior. Neuroscientists can take part in publicly funded research projects at universities, research institutes, or government facilities. There are several branches of Neuroscience. Let's discuss a few of them:

Major Branches Of Neuroscience:

  • Behavioral Neuroscience: the study of biological behavior and how the brain works.
  • Cellular Neuroscience: The study of neurons including their form.
  • Molecular Neuroscience: the study of the role of individual molecules in the nervous system.
  • Neuro-engineering: using engineering techniques to better understand, replace, repair, or improve neural systems.

Duties of Neuroscientists:

Neuroscientists perform their research at laboratories, some work in clinics and hospitals. Neuroscientists make use of antibodies to identify different components of the nervous system. Various tools and equipment are used to obtain the fruitful results.

Neuroscientists are expected to complete a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree program. In order to treat patients, neuroscientists must also participate in a medical residency. In addition to neuroscience, graduates may choose advanced degree fields specifically in neurobiology or pharmacology.

To choose Neuroscience as a subject to study further strong problem-solving skills and determination are more important than particular degree subject as neuroscience research requires a scope of controls and a flexibility of approach that can work on problems from multiple perspectives.

Skills which may be required:

  • Able to co-operate effectively with other members
  • Adaptability
  • Able to work independently
  • Computer literate and familiar with using computerized databases.
  • Able to analyze data.

After studying Neuroscience you can treat behavioral problems and learning disabilities in children. Understanding how the brain responds to sensory input can be very important. You must require experience of working with older people and patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. It would be right to say that Human beings are utterly complicated animals, with absolutely convoluted perspectives. At last, notwithstanding, we are controlled by chemicals and electrical stimulation. There is also an area of Cognitive neuroscience; it is the study of human cognition, or understanding it’s identification with neuroscience or the organic elements of the human mind and sensory system.


There are many universities in India offering this elite course like National Brain Research Centre in Gurgaon, University of Madras and Sri Ramachandra University both in Chennai. The salary package is way too good for the beginners in this field. So if you want to study hard and make a career in Neuroscience then go for it.
