This website is for:

  1. Physicians (in training or in practice): for a quick neurology refresher and to look up diagnostic tests and diseases.
  2. Medical Students: for your initial introduction to neurology and to help study for rotations.
  3. Neurologists: for quick reference on call or in the office.

The organization of the website:
