The medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the nervous system, which includes the brain, the spinal cord, and the nerves. Neurology also includes diagnosis and treatment of both central and peripheral nervous system. A neurologist is a medical doctor who specializes in treating diseases of the nervous system. The nervous system is made of two parts: the central and peripheral nervous system. It includes the brain and spinal cord. Illnesses, disorders, and injuries that involve the nervous system often require a neurologist’s management and treatment.

The term neurogenesis is made up of the words “neuro” meaning “relating to nerves” and “genesis” meaning the formation of something. The term therefore refers to the growth and development of neurons. This process is most active while a baby is developing in the womb and is responsible for the production of the brain’s neurons. Neurogenesis takes place in the subventricular zone (SVZ) that forms the lining of the lateral ventricles and the subgranular zone that forms part of the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus area

Neuropsychology is the study of brain–behaviour relationships and has traditionally utilised the classical lesion-based approach – relating focal brain damage to patterns of preserved and impaired cognitive functioning. The loss of the ability to execute or carry out learned purposeful movements. It concerns with the neurological basis of behaviour, memory and cognition which mainly occurs as the aftermath of the neurological damage, disease and treatment thereof. The recent research of the behavioral neurology comes together with the Neuropsychiatry and Neuropsychology.

Neuropharmacology is the study of how drugs affect cellular function in the nervous system, and the neural mechanisms through which they influence behavior. There are two main branches of neuropharmacology: behavioral and molecular. Behavioral neuropharmacology focuses on the study of how drugs affect human behavior (neuropsychopharmacology), including the study of how drug dependence and addiction affect the human brain. Molecular neuropharmacology involves the study of neurons and their neurochemical interactions, with the overall goal of developing drugs that have beneficial effects on neurological function. Neuroepidemiology is a branch of epidemiology involving the study of neurological disease distribution and determinants of frequency in human populations.

Neurodegenerative disease is an umbrella term for a range of conditions which primarily affect the neurons in the human brain. Neurodegenerative diseases are incurable and debilitating conditions that result in progressive degeneration and / or death of nerve cells. This causes problems with movement (called ataxias), or mental functioning (called dementias).

It is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of patients with injury to, or diseases/disorders of the brain, spinal cord and spinal column, and peripheral nerves within all parts of the body. The specialty of neurosurgical care includes both adult and pediatric patients. Dependent upon the nature of the injury or disease a neurological surgeon may provide surgical and/or non-surgical care. Neuroplasticity is being denoted as the brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. Neuroplasticity allows the neurons (nerve cells) in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment. Brain reorganization takes place by mechanisms such as "axonal sprouting" in which undamaged axons grow new nerve endings to reconnect neurons whose links were injured or severed.

Addiction is defined as a constantly persistent, relapsing mental disorder. It is considered a mental disorder because drugs change the function of the brain and its structure. These brain changes can be long-lasting and can lead to the harmful behaviors. Most abused drugs produce intense feelings of pleasure. The initial decision to take drugs is typically voluntary. The common characteristic of all addictive substances is that they activate the brain’s reward system, either directly or indirectly. The positive and negative consequences of substance use vary greatly depending on the specific drug being used. The primary features of substance use disorders are a mixture of cognitive, behavioral, and physiological symptoms.

Some of the behavioral addiction likes alcoholism, amphetamine addiction, cocaine addiction, nicotine addiction, opiate addiction, food addiction, gambling addiction, and sexual addiction root cause of brain damage/brain disorder. Addiction may cause health problem as well as problems at work and with family members and friends. Addicted person manages his stress and other mental health problems with the therapy.

Neuroimaging or brain imaging is the use of varied techniques to either directly or indirectly image the structure, function/pharmacology of the Nervous system.  Neuroimaging technologies like Positron emission tomography, single-photon emission tomography, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) gave neuropsychologists and neuroscientists images of living, functioning brains. The Structural and Functional Neuroimaging are the types, where structural Neuroimaging provides brain’s anatomical structure and Functional Neuroimaging provides aspects of brain function. Direct measurement of diverse neurochemicals using neuroimaging techniques provides unique probes of neuronal integrity. Future heads towards the combination of imaging modalities by using advances in software and hardware.

Cognitive neuroscience is the field of study focusing on the neural substrates of mental processes. It is at the intersection of psychology and neuroscience, but also overlaps with physiological psychology, cognitive psychology and neuropsychology. It combines the theories of cognitive psychology and computational modelling with experimental data about the brain. Cognitive neuroscientists study human participants. They study key cognitive concepts, such as memory, perception, action, language, and conscious awareness.

Neurotoxicity is any damage or effect in the Central Nervous system caused by biological, chemical, or physical agents. These agents are known as Neurotoxins. The manifestations of Neurotoxicity include effects on memory, cognition, sensory processes, Intellectual actions, motor functions, gait and movement control Neurotoxicity is considered as the cause for most of the Neurodegenerative disorders like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, Motor neurone diseases and others causing a Cytotoxic damage. The biochemical studies are being carried out to determine the threshold values for Neurotoxins and are made to conclusively address the role of enzymatic activity, role of proteins, and other physico-chemical agents.

The grand challenge in neuroscience is—it would seem—the effort of understanding the structure, function, and development of the nervous system in health and disease. Such understanding requires the integration of huge amounts of heterogeneous and complex data collected at multiple levels of investigation. The interdisciplinary field of neuroinformatics combines neuroscience with information science/technology and deals with the creation of the data systems that will be required to achieve such integration. The grand challenge in neuroinformatics is to achieve advanced, ultimately seamless, integration of all data needed to understand the nervous system.

Diagnostic tests and procedures are vital tools that help physicians confirm or rule out the presence of a neurological disorder or other medical condition. Advancements in diagnostic technologies have revolutionized the field of neurology. The use of these tools in the course of neurological evaluations is driven by a strong version of the diagnostic imperative, with the goal of precisely identifying the locus and extent of disease processes. Because of the discrepancy between the sophistication of these technologies and the availability of therapeutic interventions, there is active debate regarding the appropriate use of these tools when the diagnosis is clear, or when no change is made to the therapeutic management.
