What Is Neurology?

Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. Physicians specializing in the field of neurology are called neurologists and are trained to diagnose, treat and manage patients with neurological disorders, as well as some conditions in the musculoskeletal system.

Neurologists are usually certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. A neurologist that treats children needs additional training in pediatrics and the neurological diseases of children.
