          Alam niyo ba kung ano ang pagkakaiba ng neuroscience, neurology, psychology at psychiatry? Ang makabagong agham o pag-aaral sa utak ng tao at ang mga kagamitan o function nito ay tinatawag na neuroscience, at ang agham o pag-aaral sa pag-iisip o ugali ng isang tao ay psychology. Samantalang ang neurology ay pag-aaral na medikal sa pag-iisip at mga kaugnay na kaalaman dito, at ang psychiatry naman ay pag-aaral na medikal sa mga kadahilanan o pagsasaayos ng mga karamdaman sa pag-iisip.
