Podcast: Helping a Friend with Mental Illness

For NSG residency applications, does it help to have research outside of neurosurgery field (publications in neurology or psychiatry journals)? Or, does it have to be on neurosurgery research? Also, what about basic neuroscience research that is not directly relevant to neurosurgery and is more relevant to psychiatric field (for example, circuits governing thirst/hunger/depression/anxiety/etc)? Would these help as well? Thank you.
