Cellular Neurobiology is the study of the brain from a cellular perspective. That is, a study of the properties of cells in the brain, and how cells interact and communicate. The interaction of these cells mediates identifiable functions of different systems in the brain, and the goal of the cellular perspective of neuroscience is to understand these interactions. Specific applications of cellular neuroscience include the mechanisms that produce the symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's.
