Neuroscience

 'Neuroscience' and Your Nervous System

Neuroscience is the branch of medicine that deals with the nervous system, including the brain and spine. Neurological problems can cause physical and emotional pain and can impair the ability to think, learn, move, sleep or speak.

Early recognition of a neurological problem can help manage many conditions, and in some cases can even prevent a serious condition such as a stroke.
