As human beings we are complex organisms with our brain connected to intricate neural circuits and biological systems. The nervous system is the most complex organ system in the body with most of the complexity residing in the brain. At its simplest level, cognitive and behavioral neuroscience looks at how the workings of the brain address complex questions about its interactions with the environment. neuroscience addresses what’s happening in our brain around how we think about experiences and interactions with others.
