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.
