Common Neurology Terms

Physicians who specialize in neurology complete a few years of additional education after medical school to become experts in their field. Below are seven common words to be familiar with when using a neurologist.

  • Neurology – A branch of medicine that deals with disorders of the brain and nervous system. Physicians that specialize in neurology are called neurologists. Neurologists diagnose and treat genetic disorders and infectious diseases that affect the nervous system.
  • Radiology – A department of medicine that uses imaging to help doctors diagnose problems within the human body. Neurologists use radiology tests like CT scans, PET scans, and MRI scans to diagnose patients.
  • Dermatology – A branch of medicine that deals with diagnosing and treating skin conditions. A doctor that has studied dermatology addresses skin problems, from acne to skin cancer. Some neurological disorders can cause dermatological symptoms.
  • Dementia – A severe loss of cognitive function resulting in impaired attention, memory, complex reasoning skills, and language skills. Dementia typically affects older people but can have an early onset.
  • Epilepsy – A neurological disorder that causes recurrent seizures. There is no cure for epilepsy but it can be controlled with medication or surgery.
  • ALS – A neurological disease, often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease, that results in the degeneration of neurons in the brain, brain stem, and spinal cord. ALS is characterized by symptoms like muscle weakness and twitching.
  • Multiple Sclerosis – A disorder that causes a person’s immune system to attack nervous system cells, interfering with communication between brain cells. Multiple sclerosis has a wide variety of possible symptoms, which can make it difficult to diagnose.
