EEG or Electroencephalogram is a test that records electrical activity of the brain and brain wave patterns.
Nerves control the muscles in the body by electrical signals and this impulse make the muscles react in specific ways. NCS or Nerve Conduction Study is a non-invasive test which measures how well and how fast the nerves can send electrical signals.
EMG or Electromyography is an invasive diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). EMG results can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission.
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disease of the brain that is characterized by dementia or loss of memory, behavioural changes, and loss of cognitive thinking, which eventually becomes severe affecting everyday simple tasks. The disease is named after Dr Alois Alzheimer who was the first person to notice some brain tissues changes like amyloid…

An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that measures and records the electrical activity of the brain. Here, electrical sensors…
This is a science that is concerned with how the brain and the rest of the nervous system influence a person's cognitive skills and behaviours. More importantly, neuropsychologists mostly focus on how injuries or illnesses of the brain physically affect the cognitive functions and behaviours in patients.
The human mind is an intricate web of emotions, thoughts and behaviours. Similarly, the brain operates through electric signals that influence our actions. This intriguing combination is what our immensely talented neurologists and neuropsychologists at Manipal Hospitals handle on a daily basis.

After gathering general information about the patient's health the Neurologist will review the patient's medical history, and do a complete physical examination. Then the doctor might order tests for your vision, smell odors and hear sounds, coordination, memory, strength, reflexes, ability to feel physical objects, reasoning, and puzzle-solving abilities.
A neurologist is a highly trained specialist who treats conditions of the brain, Spinal cord, nerves, and muscles.
Stroke, migraine, Parkinson’s disease, Epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, Muscular Dystrophies and Peripheral Neuropathy are some common conditions in this vast and complex field.
The Neurologist will review your symptoms in-depth and ask you about any associated medical conditions that you may have. He will then proceed to do a detailed examination including a thorough assessment of the nervous system. The neurologist may order some investigations to arrive at a definitive diagnosis. Thereafter the plan of management, prognosis and follow-up visits will be discussed with you at length.
Rapid advances in the understanding of neurological disorders have translated into a highly effective treatment for almost all neurological conditions. Rapid strides in neuro-diagnostics have enabled early diagnosis and vastly improved outcomes.
Neuroscience is the study of the cellular, functional, behavioural, evolutionary, computational, molecular, and medical aspects of the nervous system. Neuroscience focuses on the human brain and how it regulates the body and behaviour.
The various branches of Neuroscience are:
A neurological exam is done to evaluate a patient’s nervous system and assess motor and sensory skills, balance and coordination, mental status, reflexes, and functioning of the nerves.
Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with nervous system disorders which include, the brain, blood vessels, muscles and nerves. There are 3 main areas of neurology, autonomic, central, and peripheral nervous systems. A doctor who works in the field of neurology is called a neurologist.
Neurologists don’t perform surgery, they monitor and supervise the treatment. They can refer patients requiring surgery to a neurosurgeon or spine surgeon.
There are a few symptoms of neurological disorders that you should never ignore:
Poor cognitive abilities
Difficulty reading and writing
Partial or complete paralysis
Neurologist- A neurologist is a medical doctor with experience in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of nervous system conditions. They treat conditions like headaches, sleep disorders, brain tumors, strokes, epilepsy, brain and spinal cord injuries, etc.
Neurosurgeon- A neurosurgeon is a doctor who diagnoses and treats conditions of the brain, spine, and nervous system using surgical and nonsurgical treatments based on the type of injury. Conditions treated by neurosurgeons include aneurysms, blocked arteries, brain tumors, spinal surgery, etc.
You should visit a neurologist if you experience one or more of the following symptoms:
Headaches, chronic pain, dizziness, weakness, seizures, numbness or tingling, vision problems, memory problems or confusion, and sleep problems.
Some of the conditions treated by a neurologist are:
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease)
Brain and spinal cord injury or infection
During a neurological examination, the neurologist performs some tests to identify medical conditions affecting the nervous system. The exact procedure and the number of tests required depend on the symptoms of any suspected condition.
Neurological disorders can result from a number of causes such as:
Manipal Hospitals has the best neurologists dedicated to your health, safety, comfort, and convenience.
