Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system.
Biomedical scientists and physicians who specialise in neurology are called neurologists, and are trained to investigate, or diagnose and treat, neurological disorders. Paediatric neurologists treat neurological disease in children.
Neurologists treat patients who suffer from diseases and conditions such as Parkinson's disease, migraine, epilepsy, encephalitis, cancer, Lou Gehrig's disease, carpal tunnel syndrome and back pain.
