Your Guide to the Brain and Nervous System
About the Brain and Nervous System
Your brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system, which connects to nerves throughout your body.
Neurological Tests and Procedures
The nervous system is complex, and diagnosing nerve problems can be challenging. But your doctor has many tools to help in the evaluation.
Neurological Conditions and Diseases
From chronic low back pain to degenerative conditions like Parkinson’s disease, this category spans a broad range of conditions.
Alzheimer's Disease and Memory Disorders
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, but other conditions can also cause memory and thought problems.
Headaches
Headaches are a common neurological complaint. They are generally classified as migraines, tension headaches, or cluster headaches.
Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases
When a clot blocks blood flow to the brain or a blood vessel in the brain bursts, the entire body can be affected.
Understanding Rehabilitation
If you’ve had a stroke or brain or spinal cord trauma, or you have a neuromuscular disorder like Bell’s palsy, rehabilitation can help you recover more quickly.
Healthy Brain
A healthy brain is built on a healthy body: Keep your brain fit by eating right, getting regular exercise, and staying mentally active.
Children and Neurological Conditions
The first sign of a neurological problem may be a delay in developmental milestones or changes in movement or reflexes.
