Neurochemistry and Neuroscience
Neurochemistry is the study of neurochemicals that are generated by the nervous system. Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary field of science dealing with the study of the functions and structure of the nervous system. Neurochemicals such as oxytocin, serotonin, dopamine and other neurotransmitters and neurotransmitter-regulating substances relates to the chemical processes in the brain and nervous system. It is the chemistry that allows the brain to transmit signals. Neurochemistry is a burgeoning research discipline that leads to our understanding of cellular, biochemical and medicinal neurobiology. It deals with the role of nervous system-building chemicals, shows how degenerative mechanisms are at work in the nervous system, examines the health and disease of the neurons and glial cells and discovers each aspect of neurotransmission and cell metabolism.
