Physics Help with physics and neuroscience

  1. Oct 29, 2011 #1
    Let me get to the point. I'm extremely interested in neuroscience, and also with physics; specifically astrophysics. I have two questions here: Is there much math/physics involved with neuroscience? And what has a better job outlook, etc, astrophysics or neuroscience? Thanks.

    I would be inclined to say as far as market demand, neuroscience would be the better market (especially with medical motivation) but there is some commercial interest in space travel now, I guess.

    Neuroscience is a huge subject, with many angles. Fundamentally, there are three angles: the chemistry, the physics, or the psychology. There's also a lot of intersections with computer sciences, since the complexity of the subject requires some sophisticated data generation, manipulation, and visualization.

    I consider biology to be a composite of chemistry and physics; not fundamental, but emergent.
