Neuroscience is the study of the most complicated structure in the universe—the human nervous system. Neuroscientists seek to understand the physical principles by which the nervous system operates and how these principles enable the nervous system to process information, learn from experience, and regulate behavior. Neuroscience is distinguished by an interdisciplinary approach that integrates methods from many fields to understand the function of the brain. Undergraduate neuroscience majors frequently go on to careers in medicine, research, and/or counseling, but a wide variety of other career options is also available.
