Neurology stems from the broader field of neuroscience, which is the scientific study of the nervous system. Neurology refers to the diagnosis and treatment of a range of conditions and disease related to the entire central and peripheral nervous system. Neurological disorders can affect the brain and spinal cord, the somatic and autonomic nervous systems, blood vessels and the muscular system. Neurology involves the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders; it however excludes surgeries. The specialty that involves surgeries is known as neurosurgery.
