doctor analyzing X-rays of the central nervous system on a monitor

Neurology is the medical specialty dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological disorders of the Central, Peripheral and Autonomic Nervous System, in every age group.

The pathologies addressed by this specialty include cephalalgia (headaches) namely migraines, as well as sleep, memory, and language disorders. In addition, Neurology is dedicated to developmental disorders, such as intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, attention deficit with or without hyperactivity (ADHD or ADD), and dyslexia.

Within the scope of Neurology there are also cerebrovascular diseases such as cerebral atherosclerosis and cerebrovascular accidents (CVA, or stroke), as well as epilepsy, peripheral neuropathies, and myelopathies. Cerebrovascular disease remains the leading cause of death and disability in Portugal, and its prevention is crucial. Neuropathy is a disease that affects the functioning of peripheral nerves and can influence both sensitivity and motor skills. Myelopathy, on the other hand, is a disease that compromises the spinal cord, causing gradual loss of mobility.

It is also worth mentioning the role of this specialty in the diagnosis and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, and movement disorders, such as tremor and Parkinson's disease, among others.
