The study of the brain then is the study of who we are, what we are, and how we work. Neuroscience and Cognitive Studies is the interdisciplinary field where all these questions come together. From physiological research into neurotransmitter activity to psychological research into language acquisition and memory to philosophical research into the nature of consciousness and matter, the questions regarding the brain are countless and pose one of the most exciting and vigorous areas of academic research....
