      Well, it mya sound a little specific, but really, theres a lot of neuroscience in the psychology that you study: even if it may be hard to see! Ideas from brain development are often used to anchor developmental psychology, knowledge from brain chemistry underlies how we treat some neuropsychiatric disorders… I will say, though, that even if neuroscience *underpins* a lot of psychology, its not always the best level or viewpoint with which to approach a problem. I’m happiest working with people with really different backgrounds that are open to learning from each other!
