About the Brain and Nervous System
Anatomy of the Brain
The brain is an important organ that controls thought, memory, emotion, touch, motor skills, vision, respiration, temperature, hunger, and every process that regulates your body.
Endovascular Neurosurgery and Interventional Neuroradiology
Endovascular neurosurgery is a subspecialty within neurosurgery that uses catheters and radiology to diagnose and treat various conditions and diseases of the central nervous system.
A neurological exam may be performed with instruments, such as lights and reflex hammers, and usually does not cause any pain to the patient.
Neurological surgery is used to treat disorders of the brain, spine, and nerves. The doctor who specializes in neurological surgery is called a neurosurgeon or neurological surgeon.
Neurology is the branch of medicine that is concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system.
