neurocomputation (s) (noun), neurocomputations (pl)
An organic computer that has been built from living neurons: "One early sample or model built to test this concept or process has been constructed from leech neurons, and is capable of performing simple arithmetic operations."

"The concepts are still being researched and prototyped, but in the near future, it is expected that artificially constructed organic brains, even though they are still considerably simpler in design than animal brains, should be capable of simple pattern recognition tasks such as handwriting recognition."

neurocrine, neurocrinism
Relating to, or being a hormonal substance that influences the activity of the nerves.
Referring to nerves and skin, or the cutaneous nerves.
neurocybernetics (s) (noun)
1. The study of communication and automatic governing systems in a mutual relationship with machines and living organisms: The organizational theory of neurocybernetics is based on the cognition of the structural and functional nature of the brain as the most complex biological self-organizating system.
2. In the physical sciences, the study of exchanging information and self-regulating control systems with a mutual relation to machines and individual living things: The general theory of neurocybernetics distinguishes three aspects of brain information activity: statistic, semantic, and pragmatic.
3. A science concerned with the processes of managing and the transfer of information in the nervous system: It is possible to identify three components of neurocybernetics: the organization, the regulation, and the theory of knowledge, based on three streams in the material world (substance, energy, and information).
A reference to nervous energy.
neurodynia (s) (noun) (no pl)
Nerve pain: Neurodynia is a paroxysmal (spasm or seizure) pain which extends along the course of one or more nerves.
neuroeconomics, neuro-economics
The study of the brain in making economic decisions; especially, to build a biological model of decision-making in economic environments.

The goal is to observe and to measure what's happening in the brain when people are making decisions with the purpose of understanding human social interactions through every level from synapse to society.

Having to do with neuroendocrinology; the interactions between the nervous system and the endocrine system; functioning in neurosecretion.
A specialist in neuroendocrinology (a branch of the life sciences dealing with neurosecretion and the physiological interaction between the central nervous system and the endocrine system).
Having to do with the interactions between the nervous system and the endocrine system.

In the human body, two systems control all physiologic processes. One of these systems is neurologic while the other is endocrine.

The nervous system exerts point-to-point control through nerves. Nervous control is electrochemical in nature and is rapid.

The endocrine system broadcasts its messages to essentially all cells by the secretion of hormones into the blood and extracellular fluids.

Like a radio broadcast, it requires a receiver to get the message. To receive endocrine messages, cells must bear a receptor for the hormone being broadcast in order to respond to it.

The nervous and endocrine systems often act together to regulate the physiologic processes of the human body and those interactions constitute neuroendocrinology.
