Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary science that focuses on the development, structure, and function of the nervous system in health and disease. The nature of the field allows the integration of perspectives from cellular and molecular biology, anatomy, physiology, psychology, medicine, and many other disciplines. Neuroscience research advances our knowledge about neurological conditions and assists with developing treatments for major causes of death in developed and developing nations. Within the Division of Clinical Anatomy, the main research focus in the neurosciences is sleep. Current research centers on qualitative and quantitative methods of examining sleep health and the factors that influence it in South African pediatric populations.
