Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. Neurology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions and disease involving the central and peripheral nervous systems, including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscle.

A neurologist is a doctor with specialized training in diagnosing and treating diseases of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and muscles.

Concentration
A neurologist will often treat patients who have these medical conditions:

Stroke
You might see a neurologist if you have difficult to manage stroke risk factors, are seen in the hospital within a few hours of having a stroke, have an unexplained stroke, have recurrent strokes, or have unusual effects of a stroke.

Neurological trauma
Traumatic brain injury occurs when a sudden, external, physical assault damages the brain.

Tumors of the nervous system
This including the 130 different types of brain tumors.

Infections of the nervous system
These include meningitis, inflammation of the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord, and encephalitis, inflammation of the brain. 

Autoimmune diseases

People who have autoimmune diseases that affect the nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis, may work with a neurologist.

Seizures and seizure disorders
Abnormal electrical activity in the brain can cause seizures. Epilepsy is a condition in which a person has repeated seizures. Diagnosis and treatment of these disorders often require consultation with a neurologist.

Movement disorders
These include conditions like Parkinson’s disease, as well as problems with movement, including clumsiness, tremor, rigidity, unintentional movements, or difficulty walking.

Neuromuscular disorders
Conditions like Lou Gehrig’s disease (aka amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS) affect the nerves that control your voluntary muscles.

Headaches
The two commonest types of headache in neurological practice are migraines and tension headaches.

Dementia
Dementia is an umbrella term for different types of cognitive impairment, including Alzheimer’s disease.

Sleep disorders
Narcolepsy is a type of neurological disorder. For a flyer on the Sleep Center at Princeton Community Hospital, please click here.
