Neuromics is a term that derives from Genomics. Just as genomics is the study of the genome, which consists of all of the genes in an organism, neuromics is the study of the neurome, which consists of all of the neurons in an organism.

Neuromics is yet another -omics, which study a variety of -omes. These include:

  • the transcriptome - the complement of genes transcribed by an organism
  • the metabolome - the metabolites produced by an organism
