Dementia: 

It is a general term for diminishing mental ability which is severe enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer and memory loss are example of the most common type of dementia.

Epilepsy:

Geriatric Neurology: 

This branch of neurology is defined by its proficiency in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological conditions that affect older people.

Headache: 

A headache can be a sign of emotional distress or stress. It can also be a result of a medical disorder such as high blood pressure or migraine or anxiety or depression. Headache can be primary or secondary. Primary headache includes migraines, tension, and cluster headaches.

Neuroepidemiology: 

This branch of neurology studies the determinants and distribution of neurological ailments in the human population.

Neurogenetics:

this branch of neurology studies the role of genetics in the function and development of the nervous system.

Neuroimaging: 

It is an umbrella term which consists of a variety of technologies and methods. This method helps to obtain the pictorial representation of the human nervous system. There are two types of neuroimaging: Structural Imaging and Functional Imaging. Structural imaging helps in the diagnosis of brain injury and certain disease associated with the brain.

Neuroimmunology: 

This branch of neurology studies the nervous system and immunology together.

Neurointensive care: 

This field of neurology treats life-threatening diseases of the central nervous system. It also helps to identify and treat secondary brain injury.

Neuromuscular disorders: 

It is an umbrella term which encompasses many various medical conditions that hinder the functioning of the4 muscles. This disorder affects the neuromuscular system of a person and may cause the muscle to become weak and waste away.

Neuro-oncology: 

It is the study of the spinal cord and brain neoplasms. Most of these are dangerous and life-threatening. The primary focus of Neuro-oncology is cancerous brain tumors.

Neuro-ophthalmology: 

This is the ophthalmic sub-specialty that deals with eye diseases caused by different neurological conditions. It is the combination of primary specialties like Neuro-surgery, Neurology, and Radiology with ophthalmology.

Neuro-otology: 

This subspecialty of neurology treats and studies disorders of the ear. Basically, it is a subspecialty of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery.

Neuropathology: 

This branch of neurology studies the central and peripheral nervous system and muscles.

Neuropharmacology:

  • Cerebrovascular disease, such as stroke
  • Headache disorders
  • Infections of the peripheral nervous system and brain
  • Seizure disorders, such as epilepsy
  • Speech and language disorders
  • Demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis
  • Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease)

General Tests and Vaccinations prescribed by a Neurologist

Your neurologist may prescribe you some tests, medications, and vaccinations based on your condition. Although, some of the common tests by the neurologists are:

Angiography: 

This test is used to detect the blockages of the veins and arteries. Angiography shows the extent and severity of the disease and helps to figure out the way to treat it.

Biopsy: 

It is a procedure to remove a sample or piece of tissue of cells from the body so that it can be analyzed more closely. It helps to discover the presence, cause, and severity of the disease

Brain Scan: 

Brain Scan is a painless way to obtain a pictorial representation of the brain for diagnosing tumors and other brain-related disorders.

Computed tomography: 

Formerly known as computerized axial tomography scan it is an imaging procedure used to the created a detailed image of the body part or organ. In this, a narrow beam is used to obtain the image.

Discography: 

It is a procedure used to determine the cause of the back pain. Discography involves pressurizing discs by injecting with a sterile liquid to the affected discs.

Intrathecal contrast-enhanced CT scan: 

This scan is used to diagnose problems associated with the spine and spinal nerve roots.

Electroencephalography: 

This test is used to monitor the activities of the brain through the skull. ECG helps to diagnose certain brain tumors, seizure disorders, brain damage from head injuries, alcoholism, inflammation of the brain and/or spinal cord, certain psychiatric disorders, and metabolic degenerative that affects the brain.

Electromyography: 

This electrodiagnostic procedure is used to diagnose muscle and nerve dysfunction and disease of the spinal cord.

Electronystagmography: 

It is a group of test that is used to diagnose dizziness, involuntary eye movement, and balance disorders. It also evaluates some functioning of the brain.

Evoked Potentials: 

It helps to measure the electrical signals to the brain generated by sight, touch, and hearing. Basically, the test assesses the sensory nerve problems and assures the presence of a neurological condition including brain tumor, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, and acoustic neuroma (small tumors of the inner ear).

Magnetic resonance imaging: 

This test is used to obtain a pictorial representation of body structures including bones, tissues, organs, and nerves using radio-generated waves and powerful magnetic waves.

Positron emission tomography: 

This scan provides two or three-dimensional images of the brain. It is used to measure cellular or tissue metabolism, detect tumors and diseased tissue, evaluate patients with seizures disorders not responding to the treatment, show blood flow and determine the changes following drug abuse.

Polysomnogram: 

It helps to measure the activity of the brain and body during the sleep. For this, the patient has to stay at the sleep centre for over one or more nights. Result of the diagnosis is used to evaluate the sleep disorder pattern including periodic limb movement disorder, restless leg syndrome, insomnia, and breathing disorders.

Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT): 

It is a nuclear imaging test used to evaluate certain functioning of the brain. The doctor may ask to take the test as a follow-up test of MRI to diagnose infections, tumors, degenerative spinal diseases, and stress fractures.

Ultrasound imaging: 

Also known as ultrasound sonography, this test uses high-frequency waves to obtain image inside the body. It analyzes the blood flow in the brain and helps to diagnose brain tumors, stroke, vascular problems, and hydrocephalus.

Thermography: 

It is used to detect vascular diseases of the neck and head, various neuro-musculoskeletal disorders, soft tissue injury and the presence or absence of nerve root compression.
