The Ultimate Neuroscience Resource List

Neuroscience is one of the most important sciences in the world. Many different areas of study fall under neuroscience including biochemistry, physiology, pathology of the nervous system, and even computational neuroscience. At its heart, Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system. In recent years, more areas of study have been linked to neuroscience, including the study of cognitive development, physics, and even psychology. Here is some helpful resources.
