The Department of Neurology works to advance our understanding of the brain and nervous system, translate that understanding into treatment and prevention, and provide outstanding patient care. We understand the impact of devastating neurological disorders on the patient and their families. Our physicians treat and research complex neurological disorders, including neuropathy, epilepsy, sleep disorders, myasthenia gravis, migraine, head and neck pain, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, ALS, Alzheimer's, dementia, stroke, and tumors of the brain and spinal cord. Our training programs in neurology attract high-caliber residents and fellows, and our faculty is nationally recognized leaders in neurological education. Faculty members from our Department are nationally and internationally recognized leaders in their field of neuroscience research and attract over $5 million of research funding each year in clinical and basic research grants and contracts.
