The nervous system is vital for maintaining the vitality of living organisms and sustaining bodily functions. Everything we do is facilitated through communication between the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves that extend throughout the body. While neurology is often associated with the brain, it should be noted that the field of neurology encompasses the entire body. The brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves are all considered within the scope of neurology.

What is Neurology?

Neurology is a medical specialty that deals with the functions, structure, and disorders of the nervous system. Due to the advanced and diverse nature of nervous system structures, there are hundreds of neurological disorders that can arise. Neurological diseases account for a significant portion of cases resulting in death and disability worldwide. Common neurological problems include Alzheimer's and other types of dementia, stroke, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, migraines, other types of headaches, dizziness, sleep disorders, muscle diseases, polyneuropathies, central nervous system infections, and more.

What Diseases Does the Neurology Department Address?

Specialized physicians in the neurology department are referred to as neurologists. Neurologists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of problems arising in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. The central nervous system comprises the brain and spinal cord, while the nerves that extend from the spinal cord to the entire body make up the peripheral nervous system. The neurology department plays a role in controlling conditions such as diseases, disorders, and injuries that occur in these nervous systems.

Common reasons for seeking consultation at neurology clinics include coordination problems, muscle weakness, sensory loss, and numbness. Some of the conditions that the neurology department is involved in diagnosing and treating include:

  • Conditions involving seizures, such as epilepsy
  • Stroke
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Neuromuscular diseases like myasthenia gravis
  • Inflammatory conditions affecting the meninges (meningitis), brain tissue (encephalitis), and brain abscesses
  • Neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's
  • Spinal cord-related problems
  • Migraines and other headache disorders

What Are The Procedures in the Neurology Department ?

To identify the underlying conditions based on the patient's complaints, various procedures may be employed in the neurology department:

  • Lumbar Puncture (LP) for examining cerebrospinal fluid
  • Electromyography (EMG) to measure the electrical activity of nerves and muscles
  • Electroencephalography (EEG) to measure the electrical activity of the brain using electrodes placed on the scalp
  • Polysomnography for diagnosing sleep disorders
  • Evoked potentials (BAEP, VEP, SEP) to assess the nervous system

Apart from these commonly performed tests, neurology specialists may also employ other examinations such as sleep studies or angiography. If you have symptoms or signs indicative of a neurological problem, do not hesitate to seek assistance from healthcare professionals by visiting a medical facility.
