It contains hundreds of billions of cells interconnected through trillions of connections. The diseases that disrupt brain function are among the most painful and destructive we know: Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, alcoholism, epilepsy, and others. These diseases are the enemy; neuroscientists are frontline fighters. Their weapons are new ideas, tested by experimentation. The revolution in modern biology has provided science with a formidable armamentarium that today includes neurogenomics, neuromodulation, and biotechnology.
