Neurology Case Reports
Neurology is defined as the branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of the nervous system that comprises of the brain and the spinal chord. Extensive research is going on in the study of common neurological disorders like the Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer disease, and migraine.
The neurobiology of bipolar disorder and dissociative identity disorder are also areas of study in this field despite the overlap with the field of psychiatry.
Clinical neuropsychologists evaluate brain-behavior for differential diagnosis, rehabilitation strategies, documenting cognitive strengths and weaknesses, and measuring change over time (e.g., for identifying abnormal aging or tracking the progression of dementia).
In some countries, a sub-specialization of this branch of medicine is called clinical neurophysiology which is associated with nerve conduction studies and electrodiagnostic medicine.
