An inside journey through the neurons of the brain

Welcome to the Wikiversity Center for Neuroscience, part of the Life Sciences.

Neuroscience is the science of animal nervous systems and exploration of how brains make minds. The Center for Neuroscience is a Wikiversity content development project devoted to learners who want to explore the biology of nervous systems in animals and how they generate animal behavior, cognition and consciousness. Neuroscience includes many subdisciplines specialized for investigation of nervous system structure, development, evolution, genetics, biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology, and pathology. The Center for Neuroscience works in close collaboration with other Wikiversity development projects such as Psychology, Life Sciences, Statistics, Computer Science and Medicine.
