Of all the all the branches of Medicine, Neurosciences are a rapidly developing specialty Many a Many areas of the neurosciences are still unexplored. The human behavior cognition has always drawn attention of all biological scientists. It is still continuing to fascinate them. Across the world researches from all spheres are engaged in unfolding the mystery of human mind and brain. It is now clear that a multidisciplinary research would only help in understanding and exploring and exploring the complicated aspects of Neurosciences. That is the reason the 21st century has termed as the century of neurosciences.
There are some commonalities between two branches of Medicine namely Neurology and Psychiatry. Both these branches deal with the human nervous system. The dieses like epilepsy, dementia, and many other neurodegenerative disorders e.g. Parkinson’s disease Huntington’s disease etc. are only manifested as neurological problems but with significant amount of psychotic and behavioral problems. Similarly, many Psychiatry illness e.g. Schizophrenia often have soft neurological signs. Newer functions imaging techniques have shown changes in different brain area suggesting possible neurological substrate for almost all psychiatric illness. Moreover, psychotropic agents used to treat psychiatric illness frequently adverse effects related to the nervous system, particularly disorders. Furthermore, as many aspects of neurobiology of different so called “non-organic” psychiatric illnesses are unfolding, these diseases are now thought to be mediated by various neurotransmitters , and they are now been managed with manipulation of them. Thus the boundary of neurology and psychiatry is gradually getting blurred.
