Increasing survival rates for children, and adults experiencing an injury or illness in the nervous system, hasresulted in more people with permanently dysfunctional nervous systems. In response, numerous treatments have been developed.
Neurology provides care to patients with diseases of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, or muscles. Specialists offer diagnostic evaluation, consultation, and management of neurobehavioral and memory disorders, neuromuscular diseases, cerebrovascular disease, movement disorders, seizure disorders, sleep disorders, brain tumors and headache. Research interests of the department's neurologists include Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, molecular immunology, neuronal cell biology, biochemistry and neuropathology.
