Neurology is the part of medicine concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system, a complex, sophisticated structure that regulates and coordinates body activities. It congregates two major divisions:
- The central nervous system which includes both brain and spinal cord
- The peripheral nervous system that comprises all other neural elements, such as eyes, ears, skin, and other "sensory receptors".
There are several illnesses that affect these organs. The most frequent include:
- Cerebrovascular disorders, such as stroke
- Demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis
- Headache disorders (Cephalalgia)
- Infections of the brain and peripheral nervous system
- Movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease
- Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease)
- Seizure disorders, such as epilepsy
- Spinal cord disorders
- Speech and language problems
