      Neuroscience is the study of the brain and the nervous system. It is a multidispilinary study, and involves biochemistry, anatomy, psychology and other disciplines.

      The health behaviour zone you thnk of as different scientists (e.g. psychologists, interested in the study of behaviour and thought. and epidemiologists like me interested in mathematical patterns between behaviours and mental health outcomes). There are many explanations for why humans have different behaviours, which is why we need so many types of scientist to study it
