What is "neuroscience"?

It's more than the study of the brain. Etc. stuff about its interdisciplinary nature. Blah blah blah filler text. Hover over the different subject areas to learn about how they relate to neuroscience.

     The overlap between neuroscience and public policy speaks directly to some of the key scientific issues of our time. With the introduction of CRISPR/Cas-9 genetic technology to the general scientific consciousness, we appear to be at the forefront of major changes to our medical and political world views. 

     Deepening knowledge of genetic influences on brain functioning at levels ranging from neurodegenerative diseases to mental health directly implicates CRISPR/Cas-9 in our understanding and treatment of the brain. Could, and should, we use this emerging technology to modify human brains? What are the ethical and legal implications of such a possibility? The intersection of neuroscience and public policy is concerned with just these questions.
