Neurological disorders are conditions that affect the central and peripheral nervous systems. Together, these systems include the brain, the spinal cord, and the nerves that extend out of these areas and into the rest of the body.
Currently, there is no strong evidence to suggest that surgery works reliably as a treatment option for migraine across a large population. Research supports its use for occipital migraine, but this is a different condition.
People with episodic migraine have headaches with migraine symptoms between zero and 14 days per month. People with chronic migraine have headaches with migraine symptoms on 15 or more days per month, for 3 or more months in a row.
When I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), I thought I was as prepared as anyone could possibly be. My grandfather had MS and my family and I were his caretakers, so I felt I knew the condition well.
In a new study on brain activity led by University of Miami psychologists, researchers found that how a person's brain evaluates fleeting negative stimuli—such as that dropped cup—may influence their long-term psychological well-being.
Higher blood pressure at night than in daytime may be a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease in older men. This is suggested by a new study from researchers at Uppsala University, now published in the journal Hypertension.
While scientists still don't know what causes Parkinson's disease, new research shows an association between a drug that some men take for an enlarged prostate condition and a reduced risk of developing the illness.
A preclinical study by neuroscientists indicates that an antigen-presenting dendritic vaccine with a specific antibody response to oligomeric A-beta may be safer and offer clinical benefit in treating Alzheimer's disease.
This study is one of the first, if not the first, prospective, randomized, interventional clinical trials of near-infrared, low-level light therapy (LLLT) in patients who recently suffered a moderate brain injury.
Among people who have the gene that carries a heightened risk for early-onset Alzheimer's disease, a new study suggests that more education might slow the development of beta-amyloid plaques in the brain.
Throbbing headaches can have a range of causes, such as a migraine headache or hangover. They can occur in different areas of the head and may occur alongside other symptoms, such as nausea and vomiting.
