About Neuroscience

Neuroscience focuses on the brain, its impact on behavior and cognitive functions, and what happens to the nervous system when people have neurological, psychiatric, and neurodevelopmental disorders.

The UMMC difference

At UMMC Neurosciences, specially trained neurologists and neurosurgeons care for patients with nervous system disorders.

We offer:

  • Neurologists and subspecialists known for their expertise in stroke/vascular neurology, neurocritical care, epilepsy, neurophysiology, neuromuscular medicine, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, neuropsychology, neuro-ophthalmology, movement disorders, and chronic headaches.
  • Skilled neurosurgeons who are among the best for surgical interventions involving pediatrics, spine, trauma, cerebrovascular, skull base, stereotactic, and neuroendoscopic procedures.
  • A continuum of care that includes a specialized intensive care unit and neurorehabilitation services.
  • Diagnosis, treatment, and care from specialists with the Center for Neuromuscular Disorders.
