Neuroscience is the interdisciplinary field of study integrating topics from cognitive and behavioral sciences as well as molecular and cellular biology. Wolfram|Alpha delivers information on the structure and function of the brain, neuronal connectivity and characteristics, and brain activity specific to a particular cognitive process.
