The Department of Neurology at the University of California, Davis conducts basic and clinical research on the nervous system and provides clinical care for people with neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, epilepsy, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases, tremor, dystonia, multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular conditions, headache, and sleep disorders.
The department’s faculty includes leading neuroscientists, who work to expand our knowledge of nervous system function, as well as neurologists and psychologists who provide diagnosis and treatment for adults and children. The department offers cutting-edge diagnostic approaches, including advanced neuroimaging technologies, and access to trials of new medications and other therapeutic modalities. The department has an active residency program that enrolls 15 residents. The department also sponsors several post-doctoral fellowships in clinical neurophysiology, clinical neuropsychology, epilepsy, movement disorders, and neurodegeneration and aging.
