Cognitive Neurology

Cognitive neurology is focused on a few cognitive and mental processes such as language, learning and memory. The recent advances, and the study of understanding brain diseases and cognition, along with other developments in the field of neurophysiology and psychology, have played a part in the creation of a new field called the cognitive neuroscience. Neuroscience has therefore enabled neuroscientist to have a glimpse of what the brain looks like using advanced tools like the neuroimaging. Without piercing the skull the brain can be visible and this may be one step closer to understanding how the brain enables us to think, remember, love, understand others, see, and hear.

This is why neurological physicians, in the clinics and on the research fields, are able to help patients who have cognitive disorders and shortness of neuron function in combating these ailments as well as helping to repair neural damage in patients with dementia, Alzheimer’s and many more. With the help of behaviour therapists, speech and language pathologists, educators, research and clinical psychologists, neuroscientist, experiments can be carried out on such individuals.

For many taking care of loved ones who are suffering from neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s Disease, and Parkinson’s disease can be challenging, but with the help of clinical research which is aimed at the development of drugs that will help lessen the cognitive deficits patients suffer, they can manage the health of their loved ones. Also, there are various investigations in patients with brain disorders, and there has been an understanding of the neural networks that participate in higher cognitive functions, as well as memory disorders that come with chronic illness from such investigations.

Some aspects of science have been benefiting from the cognitive neuroscience, such as clinical research and engineering. Taking engineering as an instance, the building of the artificial intelligence and robots is one area that cognitive neuroscience has benefited engineering. As for clinical research, it is most beneficial to pharmaceutical companies who utilize them in drug making.
