Neuroscience is at the interface between biology and psychology. It is about the scientific study of nervous systems. It includes study of the nature and functioning of the nervous system at all levels, from the molecules that make up individual nerve cells and the transfer of information from one nerve cell to another, to the complexities of how behaviour, thoughts and emotions are produced. Neuroscientists are interested in many basic questions, including why do people and other animals behave, think and feel the way they do, how addictive drugs produce their effects, how brain cells develop, why they die or sometimes malfunction, and how they repair themselves when damaged.
Our vision is to foster interest in Neuroscience and facilitate communication between those interested in Neuroscience, within Southern Africa and Africa.
It is the mission of the South African Neuroscience Society to foster interest in Neuroscience and facilitate communication between those interested in Neuroscience, within Southern Africa and Africa.
