Neuroscientists study how the brain and the nervous system function. They work in a range of diverse environments – from labs to medical centres – and collaborate with many other disciplines. As a neuroscientist, your day might include:
- Researching questions such as: How do drugs affect the brain? What causes Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, schizophrenia?
- Contributing to develop remedies to treat and cure these and other neurological disorders.
Your work would help to ease and manage the pain of those suffering from neurological diseases.
