Frequently Asked Questions

What is neurology? 

Neurology is the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system and brain. Neurology deals with a broad category of conditions that affect the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), peripheral nervous system, autonomic nervous system and muscular system. At Capernaum Neurology, we specialise in stroke, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy and headaches. 

Diagnosis is usually through a neurological exam, which involves testing for mental status, function of the cranial nerves, coordination, strength, reflex and sensation. These tests are often carried out physically or with the help of an MRI or ultrasound.

What’s the difference between a neurologist and neurosurgeon?
Neurologists and neurosurgeons work together closely to manage patients with problems of the brain and spinal cord.

In the conditions that may require surgery, like tumours or aneurysms, patients are often reffered to a neurosurgeon. In conditions that do no require surgery, the neurologist is usually primary.

Neurologists and neurosurgeons complement and do not replace each other, and it is not uncommon that someone sees both neurologist and a neurosurgeon for help.
What’s the difference between neurology and psychiatry?
There is significant overlap between both fields, but simply put neurology focuses on brain disorders with cognitive and behavioural abnormalities that also present with somatic signs, such as stroke and Parkinson’s. Psychiatry, on the other hand, focuses on disorders of mood and thought associated with little or no physical signs of the motor and sensory systems, such as schizophrenia, depression and anxiety disorders. 

Some patients may exhibit symptoms that classify them into both fields e.g. it is well known that Parkinson’s disease manifest depression and vice versa. Treatment then must take into consideration structural abnormalities of the brain and other factors to ensure therapy of one condition does not elevate the other.
