Any disorder of the nervous system is called as neurological disorder. Structural, biochemical or electrical abnormalities in the brain, spinal cord or other nerves can result in a number of symptoms  for example paralysis, muscle weakness, problem in coordination, loss of sensation, confusion, pain and altered levels of consciousness., some neurological disorders are relatively common and many are rare. They may be determined by neurological examination, and studied and treated within neurology and clinical neuropsychology.Neurological disorders involve physiotherapy or other therapy, neurorehabilitation, life style changes medication, or operations performed by  neurologists.

A stroke is a restorative crisis. Strokes happen when bloodstream to your mind stops. Inside minutes, cerebrum cells start to kick the bucket. There are two sorts of stroke. The more normal kind, called ischemic stroke, is created by a blood coagulation that squares or attachments in a vein in the cerebrum. The other kind, called hemorrhagic stroke, is brought on by a vein that breaks and seeps into the cerebrum. "Smaller than normal strokes" or transient ischemic assaults (TIAs), happen when the blood supply to the cerebrum quickly interferes. Stroke is the third driving reason for death in the United States. Of the more than 700,000 individuals influenced each year, around 500,000 of these are first assaults, and 200,000 are intermittent. It is estimated that about 29 percent of individuals who recuperate from their first stroke will face another stroke inside four to five years. Stroke is the main source of genuine long haul handicap, with an expected 5.4 million stroke survivors presently alive today.

Dementia and Alzheimer’s malady aren’t the same. Dementia is an by and      large term utilized to depict indications that influences memory, day by day exercises, and capacities of communications. Alzheimer’s infection is the foremost common sort of dementia. Alzheimer’s illness gets more awful with time and influences memory, language, and thought. Dementia could be a disorder, not a illness. A disorder could be a bunch of side effects that don’t have a authoritative determination. Dementia could be a bunch of side effects that influence mental cognitive errands such as memory and thinking. Dementia is an umbrella term that Alzheimer’s malady can drop beneath. It can happen due to a assortment of conditions, the foremost common of which is Alzheimer’s illness.

Rehabilitation is given for long period of time to improve function so that the stroke survivor can become as independent as possible. This must be accomplished in a way that preserves dignity and motivates the survivor to relearn basic skills that the stroke may have impaired - skills like bathing, eating, dressing and walking. Rehabilitation starts in the hospital as soon as possible following a stroke. The rehab team includes Physiatrist, Neurologist, Rehabilitation Nurse, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist and Speech-Language Pathologists. Cerebrovascular refers to blood flow in the brain. Arteries supplying oxygen to the brain are affected and bring about one of a number of cerebrovascular diseases. Most common is a stroke or mini-stroke and sometimes can be a hemorrhagic stroke. Cerebrovascular diseases include carotid stenosis, vertebral stenosis and intracranial stenosis, aneurysms, and vascular malformations. Restriction in blood flow can be caused by vessel narrowing, clot formation, blockage or blood vessel rupture.

It is estimated that about 6 million deaths are due to cerebrovascular disorders. It is the second leading cause of death in the world and 6th most common cause of disability.

Neurophysiology is a branch of physiology and neuroscience that is concerned with the study of the functioning of the nervous system. The primary tools of basic neurophysiological research include electrophysiological recordings for example, voltage clamp,patch clamp, extracellular single-unit recording and recording of local field potentials, as well as some of the methods of apoptogenesis, calcium imaging, and molecular biology.Neurophysiology is related to electrophysiology, neuroanatomy, psychology and mathematical neuroscience.Neurodegeneration is the process of progressive loss of structure or function of neurons, including death of neurons. Many neurodegenerative diseases – including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and Huntington's – occur as a result of neurodegenerative processes. Such diseases are incurable, resulting in progressive degeneration and/or death of neuron cells. As research progresses, many similarities appear that relate these diseases to one another on a sub-cellular level. Discovering these similarities offers hope for therapeutic advances that could ameliorate many diseases simultaneously. There are many parallels between different neurodegenerative disorders including atypical protein assemblies as well as induced cell death. Neurodegeneration can be found in many different levels of neuronal circuitry ranging from molecular to systemic.

Neuroprotection suggests to the relative storage of neuronal structure and/or function. In the case of an ongoing insult (a neurodegenerative insult) the relative preservation of neuronal integrity implies a decreasing in the rate of neuronal loss over time, which can be expressed as a differential equation. It is a widely explored treatment option for many central nervous system (CNS) disorders including neurodegenerative diseases, spinal cord injury, stroke, traumatic brain injury  and acute management of neurotoxin consumption (i.e. methamphetamine overdoses). Neuroprotection aims to prevent or slow disease progression and secondary injuries by halting or at least slowing the loss of neurons. In spite of contrasts in indications or wounds related with CNS clutters, numerous of the instruments behind neurodegeneration are the same.Common instruments incorporate expanded levels in oxidative stretch, mitochondrial brokenness, excitotoxicity, provocative changes, press amassing, and protein aggregation. Of these instruments, neuroprotective medications regularly target oxidative stretch and excitotoxicity—both of which are profoundly related with CNS disarranges. Not as it were can oxidative stretch and excitotoxicity trigger neuron cell passing but when combined they have synergistic impacts that cause indeed more debasement than on their own. In this way restricting excitotoxicity and oxidative push may be a exceptionally vital perspective of neuroprotection. Common neuroprotective medications are glutamate opponents and cancer prevention agents, which point to constrain excitotoxicity and oxidative.

Benign and malignant. Benign tumors are typically formed by slow growing cells that rarely spread. Although they can press on and damage nearby normal tissue, benign tumors are much less dangerous than malignant tumors. However, they can be life-threatening if they endanger vital brain centers. However, overtime, some benign tumors can become malignant. Malignant brain tumors, on the other hand, are formed by cells that typically grow quickly and are capable of invading nearby tissues and spreading to other parts of the body. Their tendencies to invade and spread make these tumors much more dangerous. Malignant tumors of the brain often spread to other parts of the central nervous system. Only relatively few spread to other parts of the body. The cause of most brain cancers is unknown. In general, cancers are due to a combination of inherited genetic factors coupled with some exposure during life, such as exposure to a chemical, a virus or radiation. Of these, the best case has been made for exposure to high doses of radiation, such as those given as part of cancer treatment, and an increased risk of subsequent brain cancer. Exposure to some chemicals in the workplace has also been found to increase the risk of developing brain cancer. Infections may play a role as well: the virus that causes mononucleosis, the Epstein-Barr virus, has been linked to an increased risk of a form of lymphoma that affects the central nervous system, CNS lymphoma, which also is more common among individuals infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Genetics play a particularly important role in a number of brain tumors that are clearly linked to a number of inherited disorders and disorders due to chromosome damage.

Neuropsychiatry is a branch of medical science that deals with diseases of the nervous system. It preceded the current disciplines of psychiatry and neurology, which had common training, however, psychiatry and neurology have subsequently split apart and are typically practiced separately. Neuropsychiatry is closely related to the fields of  behavioral neurology. Neuropsychiatry is the interface of Psychiatry and Neurology that deals with mental disorders, which in most cases can be shown to have their origin from an identifiable brain malfunction. Neuropsychiatry focuses to understand the link between the mind, body and its behavior. Training in both organic (neurological) and psychiatric aspects of illness places Neuropsychiatry in a unique position to deliver this care. An effective evaluation of the clinical course of diseases requires the application of very precise diagnostic and assessment approaches as early as possible. By achieving these strategies, offers new opportunities for biomarker identification and/or discovery in complex diseases and may provide pathological pathways understanding for diseases beyond traditional methodologies.

Nurses play a important role in all phases of care of the stroke patient. Some of the nurse caring plans are Ineffective Cerebral Tissue Perfusion, Impaired Physical Mobility, Impaired Verbal Communication, Disturbed Sensory Perception, Ineffective Coping, Self-Care Deficit, and Risk for Impaired Swallowing. Nurses may work as an emergency medical technician (EMT) and paramedics, radio providers of online medical control to emergency medical services (EMS) personnel from base stations, and educators who teach EMS personnel about stroke and the care of stroke patients. Nurse Interventions are monitoring major signs in patients such as monitoring blood pressure, comparing BP reading in arms, heart rate, rhythm, and murmurs. There also monitor Respirations, noting patterns and rhythm, Cheyne-Strokes respiration.

There are about 600 Neurological disorders and approximately 50 million Americans are being affected each year. The main risk factors for Neurological disorders are genetic manipulation, age, lifestyle and other environmental agents. Abnormalities in structural and biochemical functions cause various symptoms. Some of them are paralysis, seizures, confusion, muscle weakness and altered levels of consciousness.The ability of the Brain to alter at any age is referred to as Neuroplasticity or Brain Plasticity. The recent neuroscience research proves that Neuroplasticity is the basis for brain training exercises which revolutionized the brain health and science research.

The blood–brain barrier (BBB) is a highly selective semipermeable membrane barrier that separates the circulating blood from the brain and extracellular fluid in the central nervous system (CNS). The blood–brain barrier is formed by brain endothelial cells and it allows the passage of water, some gases, and lipid-soluble molecules by passive diffusion, as well as the selective transport of molecules such as glucose and amino acids that are crucial to neural function. Furthermore, it prevents the entry of lipophilic potential neurotoxins by way of an active transport mechanism mediated by P-glycoprotein. Astrocytes have been claimed to be necessary to create the blood–brain barrier. A few regions in the brain, including the circumventricular organs, do not have a blood–brain barrier.

Neuroimmunology is a field combining neuroscience, the study of the nervous system, and immunology, the study of the immune system. Neuroimmunologists seek to better understand the interactions of these two complex systems during development, homeostasis, and response to injuries. A long-term goal of this rapidly developing research area is to further develop our understanding of the pathology of certain neurological diseases, some of which have no clear etiology. In doing so, neuroimmunology contributes to development of new pharmacological treatments for several neurological conditions. Many types of interactions involve both the nervous and immune systems including the physiologicalfunctioning of the two systems in health and disease, malfunction of either and or both systems that leads to disorders, and the physical, chemical, and environmental stressors that affect the two systems on a daily basis.

Neurotransmitters are endogenous chemicals that enable neurotransmission. It is a type of chemical messenger which transmits signals across a chemical synapse, such as a neuromuscular junction, from one neuron (nerve cell) to another "target" neuron, muscle cell, or gland cell. Neurotransmitters are released from synaptic vesicles in synapses into the synaptic cleft, where they are received by neurotransmitter receptors on the target cells. Many neurotransmitters are synthesized from simple and plentiful precursors such as amino acids, which are readily available from the diet and only require a small number of biosynthetic steps for conversion. Neurotransmitters play a major role in shaping everyday life and functions. Their exact numbers are unknown, but more than 200 chemical messengers have been uniquely identified.

The main reason of death in children in the USA  is due to stroke and the most pediatric stroke survivors will be suffering from neurological or cognitive impairments. Because of the plasticity of the brains of children, they recover faster than adults. A stroke survivor may be diagnosed with Epilepsy. Based on the cause of the stroke, the treatments will be decided by the physicians. Constraint therapy is an old therapy, but it is now extensively used in the pediatric stroke rehabilitation. If the stroke is caused by the blockage, then blood thinning medications will be given. If stroke happens due to Sickle Cell Disease (SCD), then an immediate blood transfusion will be performed. A physiotherapist can help with movement problems such as weakness or paralysis, spasticity or muscle spasms.  The therapist will assess and design a program to improve muscle strength (which can reduce the risk of spasticity) and movement.

It is estimated that about 6 million deaths are due to cerebrovascular disorders. It is the second leading cause of death in the world and 6th most common cause of disability.

Cerebrovascular disease is a medical conditions that affect the blood vessels of the brain and the cerebral circulation. The arteries supplying oxygen and nutrients to the brain are usually  get damaged  in this disorders. The most common type of cerebrovascular disease is an ischemic stroke or mini-stroke and sometimes a hemorrhagic stroke. high blood pressure (Hypertension) is the most important contributing risk factor for stroke and cerebrovascular diseases as it can change the structure of blood vessels and result in atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis  is a condition  where the blood vessels narrows in the brain, resulting in decreased cerebral perfusion. Narrowed cerebral arteries may lead to ischemic stroke, but continually elevated blood pressure can also cause tearing of vessels, leading to a hemorrhagic stroke.

Clinical trials and research are an important part of the Department of Neurology. This clinical trial will lead to the new discovery that eventually improves the patient health. Clinical trials allow researchers to study new treatment options, drugs or combinations of treatments to determine if they can be integrated into a standard practice of care. A list of active clinical trials is provided below. Many research trials have been conducted in each department of neurology to ensure the safety and advancement of patient care.

The anticipation of neurological infection within the post-infant stage of life and considers both the open wellbeing and person procedures that have been utilized for essential avoidance. Auxiliary avoidance is considered for certain conditions—for example, stroke. To be able to plan essential preventive techniques, sound epidemiological prove is required. Components to consider are case definition, ponder plan, and the resultant certainty with which elucidation of the comes about can be made. For numerous of the neurological conditions talked about case definition is risky. In stroke, for case, a clinical definition is utilized in most investigate thinks about. For numerous neurological conditions there are point by point clinical case arrangement but when surveying dangers, most prove has been based on case-control considers with the resultant biases. This survey essentially considers stroke, because it is the major cause of grown-up neurological passing and inability. With current information of chance variables it is the condition in which there's most scope for essential avoidance. A brief survey of a few of the other major neurological maladies is included to demonstrate regions where work has been detailed or is required. The viewpoint in this survey is that of the created world.
