What is Neurology?

Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with neurological disorders which include the brain, blood vessels, muscles and nerves associated with the nervous system. Neurological disorders symptoms often vary among infants, young children and adults. The main areas of neurology include the autonomic, central and peripheral nervous systems.

A neurologist is a medical professional who diagnoses and treats conditions related to the nervous system. In the case of children, the healthcare provider is called a paediatric neurologist. Neurological conditions that affect the pediatric population include cerebral palsy, nerve and muscle diseases, epilepsy, complex metabolic diseases, and learning disabilities.
