In this department, specific subfields are targeted as intensive research areas. In peripheral neurology, pathological aspects and molecular genetic mechanisms of neuromuscular disorders are included as well as electrophysiologic studies. In epilepsy, clinical trials of new epileptic drugs, electrophysiologic analysis for epilepsy surgery, and animal models of epilepsy are studied. In neurodegenerative disorders, clinical spectrums, motor physiology, and neurotransmitters of basal ganglia are the main subjects of research. In stroke, the studies are focused on development of a new therapeutic model against ischemic neuronal injury.
