Theoretical Neuroscientist

Your nervous system helps your brain communicate with the rest of your body. Neuroscience is the study of the brain and the rest of the nervous system (including the spinal cord and the large network of nerve cells — neurons — that travel through most animals’ bodies). Theoretical neuroscientists like Brian DePasquale use computers and mathematics, as well as the results of experiments done by biologists, to improve our understanding of neuroscience.
