The Department of Neurology acquaints students with diseases that affect the nervous system and equips them with fundamental skills in clinically relevant neuroscience, neurologic diagnosis and management. This instruction is designed for students entering all branches of medicine, since neurological disorders are common among patients in virtually every medical specialty. Faculty basic research interests include the neurophysiology of vision, respiratory and circulatory control, molecular genetics, structure and function of nerve and muscle ion channels, neurodegeneration, basis of circadian rhythms and neural stem cell biology. Clinical research interests include the neurology of aging and Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular disorders and cerebrovascular disease.
