Neurology and Neurological Disorder


The field of medicine dealing with the study and treatment of nervous system disorders is neurology. A dynamic, sophisticated mechanism that controls and coordinates the functions of the body is the nervous system. The central nervous system has two main divisions: the cortex and the spinal cord.
Any disease of the nervous system is a neurological disorder. A number of symptoms may result from structural, biochemical or electrical defects in the brain, spinal cord or other nerves. Paralysis, muscle weakness, impaired balance, loss of feeling, epilepsy, confusion, pain and altered states of consciousness are all examples of symptoms.
