A neuroscientist (sometimes also called a neurobiologist) is an individual who studies the scientific field of neuroscience or any of its related sub-fields. Neuroscience (neurobiology) as a distinct discipline separate from anatomy, neurology, physiology, psychology, or psychiatry is fairly recent, aided in large part by the advent of newer, faster computing methods and neuroimaging techniques.[1][2]

These scientists generally work as researchers within a college, university, government agency, or private industry setting.[citation needed]

Training and education[edit]

Many colleges and universities now have a neuroscience program, existing either as its own distinct department or as an institute within another, larger department. Often the neuroscience program exists within the psychology, molecular and cell biology, or other biology department. There are now many schools that offer PhDs in neuroscience and/or neurobiology.
