What is Neurology?

The study of neurology consists of understanding the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, how they interact, and the diseases and disorders that affect them.

Brains coordinate how we think and what we do physically, as well as controlling how our bodies manage themselves.  Messages are sent and received by the brain via a complex network of nerves that use chemicals and electricity to send information.
