Message from the Chairman
understanding brain function and dysfunction is the last major
frontier for both Clinical Medicine and Neuroscience research.
The brain is not only the control center for motor output and
sensory input, but also serves as the organ for memory
acquisition and storage, cognitive function and intelligence,
language, emotion, and spiritualism. Advances in Neuroscience
research have changed our specialty from a field based primarily
in disease diagnosis to one equally invested in treatment.
of Neurology at UTMB has an outstanding record for
teaching clinical neurosciences, and is now committed to
advancing our knowledge of neurologic disease -
especially neurodegenerative disease - through both
basic and translational research. Our primary clinical
focus remains the understanding and treatment of chronic
neurovascular, neurodegenerative, and neurometabolic
diseases. But we have significant expertise also in
epilepsy, sleep disorders, headache, movement disorders
and neuromuscular medicine. We in the Department of
Neurology are completely committed to Neurologic
education, research, and the clinical care of our
patients, and to keeping UTMB "First in Texas".
