Neurology involves diagnosing and treating conditions of the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous systems. Neuroscientists are basic scientists who may or may not have a degree in medicine. Most of them, however, are doctorates in neuroscience.

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive neurologic disorder that causes the brain to shrink (atrophy) and brain cells to die. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia — a continuous decline in thinking, behavioural and social skills that affects a person's ability to function independently.

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood

Neuroimmunology encompasses fundamental and applied biology, immunology, chemistry, neurology, pathology, psychiatry and virology of the central nervous system (CNS)
Neuromuscular diseases affect the function of muscles due to problems with the nerves and muscles in your body. The most common sign of these diseases is muscle weakness. Mayo Clinic neurologists
provide comprehensive evaluation of these diseases, including electrodiagnostic studies and other tests.
Your peripheral nervous system (PNS) is that part of your nervous system that lies outside your brain and spinal cord. It plays key role in both sending information from different areas of your body back to your brain, as well as carrying out commands from your brain to various parts of your body

The brain is a complex organ that controls thought, memory, emotion, touch, motor skills, vision, breathing, temperature, hunger and every process that regulates our body. Together, the brain and spinal cord that extends from it make up the central nervous system, or CNS.
Paediatric neurology refers to a specialized branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and management of neurological conditions in neonates (new-borns), infants, children, and adolescents.
Serious head trauma has long been studied for its relationship to brain tumours. Some studies have shown a link between head trauma and meningioma but not between head trauma and glioma.

In this type of robot, the surgeon remotely controls the actions of the robot. The NeuroArm (University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada) holds tremendous promise. It is an MRI-compatible robotic arm that mimics the movements of a surgeon’s hands.
Neurosurgery or neurological surgery is the medical specialty focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and rehabilitation of disorders which affect any part of the nervous system such as brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. They help in the diagnosis of intra cerebral haemorrhage.
Epilepsy is a central nervous system (neurological) disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behaviour, sensations and sometimes loss of awareness. Anyone can develop epilepsy.
Brain mapping is a set of neuroscience techniques predicated on the mapping of (biological) quantities or properties onto spatial representations of the (human or non-human) brain resulting in maps.
Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behavior. Psychologists are actively involved in studying and understanding mental processes, brain functions, and behavior.
