Neurology is basically the study of the brain. In focus, it is a medical field that specializes in the study, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders that are related to the brain and the nerves. It is considered as the most sensitive branch of medicine.
Neurology is a branch that identifies and researches on diseases that affect the brain and the nerves of the body. It boils down to major medical treatments and undertakings due to the high sensitivity of the organs related to this study. It is one of the youngest medical branches because the study of the brain and its corresponding organs can only be diagnosed and treated properly due to advancement in medical technology.
