Volume 8 No.3 October-December 2018 pp 104-109
Neuroscience is a mix up of research outputs emanated from various disciplines like medicine, biotechnology, biochemistry, psychology, pharmacology, computer science, linguistics etc. Even experts in management also started thinking about the underlying neurological facts behind successful decision making in business and Management. This paper explains the contribution of universities towards Indian neuroscience in the form of theses. Here we can see the interdisciplinary contribution to the field. The source of data was “Shodhganga” maintained by Information and Library Network (INFLIBNET) Centre. The initiatives of different states, universities and guides are given detailed. The subjects in which active research is going on in Indian universities are identified. The findings of the study are useful for those who keenly examine India’s productivity on neuroscience.
