Diseases of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system and the muscular system cause a variety of conditions and symptoms ranging from headache, backache, sensory disturbances and paralysis, speech and vision disorders, impaired memory and other cognitive impairment to disorders of consciousness and the occurrence of involuntary movements. The Department of Neurology cares for all patients with such acute as well as long-term health problems in Graz and its surroundings east of the Mur River.
Our department engages in innovative and interdisciplinary research at an international level. All areas of our discipline have a special research focus. We cover the entire spectrum of university research—from fundamentals to applied research. This is how we guarantee that our patients receive treatment according to the latest scientific findings.
As a department, we are also active in practice-oriented teaching and training for students and postgraduates. Our highly qualified staff members pass on their knowledge and the latest scientific findings to students and trainees.
