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