Neuroscience in psychology

It has been a while (thirty year perhaps) since I have looked into psychology. More recently, I have had to deal with neuroscience within my research.

So how does the evidence from neuroscience fit in with psychology?

Psychology is at least 120 years old if we take Freud’s Interpretation of Dreams as a milestone or landmark. Neuroscience is far younger producing most of its findings postwar. In the last seventy years perhaps.

Of course, psychology has always been primarily about counselling. And neuroscience has been about the how the nervous system and brain works.

But how much of neuroscience evidence is actually taken aboard by psychologists?
