Neurology

What is Neurology?

Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. The nervous system is a complex network of cells and tissues that coordinate the body's actions and responses to internal and external stimuli. It is made up of the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system, which comprises all the nerves that extend throughout the body. Neurologists are doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions that affect the nervous system, including disorders of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. These conditions can range from relatively mild conditions like headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome to more serious conditions like stroke and multiple sclerosis.
