Neurology is the field of medicine that studies and treats disorders of the nervous system, which regulates and coordinates the activities of the body.

The nervous system has two main divisions:

1. The central nervous system – the brain and spinal cord.

2. The peripheral nervous system – all other nervous elements, such as: eyes, ears, skin, and other «sensory receptors».

 

A neurologist - a doctor who specializes in neurology, treats disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord, and nerves.

 

Diseases of the neurologist include: stroke, multiple sclerosis, migraines, infections of the brain and peripheral nervous system, movement disorders, for example, Parkinson's disease, neurodegenerative disorders - Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, spinal cord disorders, speech disorders, etc.

Neurologists do not perform surgery, but if the patient’s condition requires, they can refer to a neurosurgeon.

General neurological diagnostic tests:

Neurological diagnostic procedures are necessary to identify problems related to the breakdown of the nervous system.

 

Neurological examinations help determine the function and state of speech, balance, coordination of movements, reflexes, mental state, as well as the presence of tumors or infections, such as meningitis or encephalitis, and much more.
