Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system (the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system) and its functions. It is a multidisciplinary science that combines physiology, anatomy, molecular biology, developmental biology, cytology, psychology, physics, computer science, chemistry, medicine, statistics, and mathematical modeling to understand the fundamental and emergent properties of neurons, glia and neural circuits. The understanding of the biological basis of learning, memory, behavior, perception, and consciousness has been described by Eric Kandel as the "epic challenge" of the biological sciences.

Aside from more illustrative and generally more fun approaches to traditional concepts in neuroscience such as neurons' action potential, the structure of neurons and synapses, miscellaneous concepts in electrophysiology and the like, we will also explore cognitive and existential questions with a scientific perspective.

Initial Questions to Explore

While these questions haven't been answered completely in research yet, we cannot provide an accurate description of what's going on inside a person's brain in these circumstances. But we can try our best to imagine how our brain works. And, when possible, we may test our hypothesis with experiments.
