This is an applied science of brain behavior relationships. It is the changes that happen in the body and the brain which connects it with the emotion being felt. Neuropsychologists also diagnose and treat disorders that are related to the nervous system. They can diagnose behavioral problems that are suspected to be dysfunctions of the central nervous system. They can teach their patients new ways to process information with a technique known as cognitive retraining. Where do they work?

Transcript: Neurology By Sam Waltimyer A neurologist is a medical doctor or osteopath who has trained in the diagnosis and treatment of nervous system disorders, including diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles Neurologist Education Requirements Four years of premedical education in a college or university Four years of medical school resulting in an MD or DO degree (doctor of medicine or doctor of osteopathy degree) One year internship in either internal medicine or medicine/surgery At least 3 years of specialty training in an accredited neurology residency program Licensure and board examinations to be able to work in hospitals. Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system. Traditionally, neuroscience has been seen as a branch of biology. However, it is currently an interdisciplinary science that works with other fields such as chemistry,computer science, engineering, linguistics, mathematics, medicine and allied disciplines, philosophy, physics, and psychology. The term neurobiology is usually used interchangeably with the term neuroscience, although the former refers specifically to the biology of the nervous system, whereas the latter refers to the entire science of the nervous system. Neurologists work in hospitals, public or private clinics, and universities or research facilities. Many neurologists are in private practice. Neurologists new to the profession make around $150,000 per year. The average salary for a neurologist is $208,000. However, neurolgists that have developed a good name can make around $300,000. As most other physicians do, neurologists are not able to follow a 40-hour workweek. The job can be quite stressful, and treating patients properly may require working for more than 60 hours in a week. Neurologists employed in busy medical facilities may have to put in extra hours during the week and also work on weekends. Those who work in research facilities and medical schools, however, enjoy regular working hours. Job prospects for neurologists are expected to be very good in the coming years. As the baby-boomer generation approaches older age, rate of occurrence of neurological problems, like dementia and stroke, is expected to rise considerably, creating good job opportunities for neurologists.

Transcript: Neurology the biological approach Complications at birth have been acknowledged as common among children with autism, but then most often dismissed as part of a genetic predisposition rather than as cause of developmental problems. AO2 Pointers Ian Lipkin concluded that the immune response of a pregnant woman's body to viral infections, can trigger subtle neurological changes in the foetus, that might lead to a high risk of developing schizophrenia, autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders. brain dysfunction in later life However, research done long ago with monkeys provides evidence that a few minutes of asphyxia at birth damages brainstem auditory nuclei. Such damage could underlie failure to learn language by ear. brain dysfunction during birth brain dysfunction during pregnancy The first AO2 point to be thinking about... There are ethical issues with the testing of animals to get the information about the disorders. THE END Remember KF from memory? Well he is back! He is a great example of someone who's suffered from a brain dysfunction. Only one part of his memory would work after an accident. This shows that neurology isn't always genetic and can be brought on through life events. Smoking and drinking can also have a big impact on the baby's health at birth if the mother does this excessively during pregnancy.
