Neurophysics (or neurobiophysics) is the branch of biophysics dealing with the development and use of physical techniques to gain information about the nervous system on a molecular level.[1]

The term is a portmanteau of neuron and physics, to represent an interdisciplinary science which applies the approaches and methods of experimental biophysics to study the nervous system.

Examples of techniques developed and used in neurophysics are magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), patch clamp, tomography, and two-photon excitation microscopy.
