hi rachel
neuroscience is related to nervous system of the body.
it is related to nerve ,brain ,its function etc.
anxiety ,mood ,depression are related to psychiatric .
the scope of neuroscience has broadened to include different approaches used to study the molecular, cellular, developmental, structural, functional, evolutionary, computational, and medical aspects of the nervous system.
The techniques used by neuroscientists have also expanded enormously, from molecular and cellular studies of individual nerve cells to imaging of sensory and motor tasks in the brain.
Recent theoretical advances in neuroscience have also been aided by the study of neural networks.
