Neurology back

Neurology is the branch of medicine that is concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system.

 

Blakiston's Medical Dictionary defines neurology as the study of the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the nervous system, and the treatment of its disorders. This course will include all of these components although in a single semester, of course, we will just skim the surface of this content. We will cover the gross anatomy and organization of the nervous system, paying particular attention to the function of the component parts and systems. Unlike a traditional neuroanatomy course we will not have the opportunity to do dissections or spend time on the microscopic or detailed internal anatomy, but will instead relate neuroanatomy to the control of behavior. While most medical school courses on "neurology" are devoted almost entirely to diseases and disorders of the nervous system, we will use common neurological problems as a means of understanding normal nervous system function. Since this course draws many students who hope to pursue a variety of helping professions, it is hoped that this coverage will provide the basis for understanding the neurological disorders and treatments you might encounter in your careers.
 
 

"Gentlemen, look on this wonder!
Whatever the bids of the bidders,
They cannot be high enough for it;
For it the globe lay preparing quintillions
of years, without one animal or plant;
For it the revolving cycles truly and steadily roll'd.
In this head the all-baffling brain;
In it and below it, the makings of heroes."

- Walt Whitman - I Sing the Body Electric, 1855

 
A neurologist is a medical doctor or osteopath who has trained in the diagnosis and treatment of nervous system disorders, including diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles.

Neurologists perform neurological examinations of the nerves of the head and neck; muscle strength and movement; balance, ambulation, and reflexes; and sensation, memory, speech, language, and other cognitive abilities.
 
Neurologists also perform diagnostic tests such as thetaj meeting following:

* CAT (computed axial tomography) scan
* MRI/MRA (magnetic resonance imaging/magnetic resonance angiography)
* lumbar puncture (spinal tap)
* EEG (electroencephalography)
* EMG/NCV (electromyography/nerve conduction velocity)
