About Neurology and Neurologists

Neurology is the branch of medicine dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions and diseases involving the nervous system.

The nervous system has two major divisions - the central nervous system which comprises the brain and the spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system which comprises nerves that relay signals from the brain to the rest of your body.

Neurologists specialize in diagnosing and treating a myriad of neurologic conditions, including stroke, seizures, infections of the brain, movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, autoimmune neurologic disorders such as multiple sclerosis, headache disorders like migraine, neurodegenerative disorders such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), and dementias such as Alzheimer's disease.

Types of Neurologists

Neurologists have a range of specialities and subspecialties, so it is important to find someone who meets your needs.

Types of neurologists include:

  • Clinical Neurophysiologists - Doctors focusing on conditions involving the electrical activity of the brain, spinal cord and muscles, such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's disease.

  • Neuropsychologists - Doctors specializing in psychological issues related to nervous system function, such as dementia and depression. They often use psychological testing to diagnose and treat patients.

  • Vascular Neurologists - Doctors treating conditions related to the blood vessels that supply blood to the brain and spine, like stroke, aneurysms, hemorrhages, etc.

  • Movement Disorder Specialists - Doctors diagnosing and treating conditions that affect movement, such as Parkinson's disease, dystonia, ataxia, tremors, Huntington's disease, etc.

  • Pain Management Specialists - Doctors who have expertise in identifying the cause of and treating neuropathic pain.

  • Pediatric Neurologists - Doctors treating patients from infancy through young adulthood. They specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and learning disorders.

  • Neurodevelopmental Neurologists - Doctors who specialize in treating or managing neurological conditions like cerebral palsy and Down syndrome, which affect the normal and healthy development process in patients. Their training may overlap with pediatric neurologists as neurodevelopmental disorders often occur in children. 

  • Neuromuscular Neurology Specialists - Doctors focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders that affect the nerves and muscles, such as myasthenia gravis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), diabetic neuropathy,  Lambert-Eaton syndrome, myopathies, muscular dystrophy, etc.

  • Neuro-Oncologists - Doctors specializing in diagnosing and treating tumors or cancers that occur in or near the brain or spinal cord.

  • Interventional Neuroradiologists - Doctors who use minimally invasive techniques to treat blood clots, aneurysms, spinal fractures, etc.

  • Epileptologists - Doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy, a neurological disorder characterized by seizures.

Other subspecialists include geriatric neurologists, neurocritical care specialists, headache disorder specialists, neuropathologists, neuro-ophthalmologists, etc.

Lab Tests Prescribed by Neurologists

Neurologists may recommend a variety of lab tests to diagnose and monitor your condition. Some of the most common tests include:

  • Angiography - Angiography can show if blood vessels in your brain, head or neck are blocked, damaged or abnormal. It can detect such things as aneurysms and blood clots.

  • Biopsy - A biopsy is the removal of a piece of tissue from your body. Biopsies may be taken of muscle, nerve or brain tissue.

  • Cerebrospinal Fluid Analysis - This test involves the removal of a sample of the fluid that surrounds your brain and spinal cord. The test can detect evidence of a brain bleed, infection, multiple sclerosis, and metabolic diseases.

  • Imaging Tests - Imaging tests include computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), X-rays and ultrasound.

  • Electroencephalography (EEG) - This test measures your brain's electrical activity and is used to help diagnose seizures and infections (such as encephalitis), brain injury and tumors.

  • Electromyography (EMG) - This test records the electrical activity in muscles and is used to diagnose nerve and muscle disorders, spinal nerve root compression and motor neuron disorders such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

  • Electronystagmography (ENG) - This group of tests is used to diagnose involuntary eye movement, dizziness and balance disorders.

  • Evoked Potentials Test - This test measures how quickly and completely electrical signals reach your brain from your eyes, ears or touch to your skin. The test can help diagnose multiple sclerosis, acoustic neuroma and spinal cord injury.

  • Myelography - This test helps diagnose spinal and spinal cord tumors and herniated disks and fractures.

  • Polysomnogram - This test measures brain and body activity during sleep and helps diagnose sleep disorders.

  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) - This imaging test can show tumors or be used to evaluate epilepsy, brain tumors, dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

  • Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) - This imaging test can diagnose tumors, infections and assess the location of seizures, degenerative spine disease and stress fractures.

  • Thermography - This test measures temperature changes within your body or specific organs and is used to evaluate pain syndromes, peripheral nerve disorders and nerve root compression.

These tests can help neurologists understand the cause of any nervous system-related problems you may be experiencing, as well as how to best treat them.

Visiting a Neurologist Regularly

Visiting a neurologist regularly can help protect your brain health and preserve the function of your nervous system as you age.

In individuals who have other conditions like diabetes or hypertension, neurologists can help prevent complications related to these conditions like diabetic neuropathy and stroke.

Home consultations can provide you with the necessary care and convenience in monitoring your condition from the comfort of your own home.

  • Muscle weakness

  • Speech issues

  • Confusion or mental fog

  • Dizziness

  • Accidents that may have caused brain injury or concussion

  • Stroke

  • Multiple sclerosis

  • Neuromuscular disorders, such as myasthenia gravis

  • Infections of the nervous system, including encephalitis, meningitis, or brain abscesses

  • Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Lou Gehrig's disease and Alzheimer's disease

  • Spinal cord disorders, including inflammatory and autoimmune disorders

  • Headaches, such as cluster headaches, and migraine
