Neurology is a medical specialty focused on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases involving the central (Brain and Spine), peripheral and autonomic nervous systems. Neurological disorders are those affecting these three systems, including their membranes, blood vessels and effector tissues (muscles).
Neurologists are responsible for the diagnosis, treatment, and management of all diseases and disorders falling under these classifications. When surgical intervention is required the neurologist will refer the cases to a neurosurgeon.
The neurological examination result, involving Mental Status Test, Function test of the cranial nerves, including strength, coordination, reflexes and sensation, determines the existence and the exact location of the problem in the nervous system. This process is called 'Localization of pathology' which is how the neurologist develops the differential diagnosis. Further tests will confirm the diagnosis that will ultimately decide the treatment mode.
