Laboratory Introduction

Characteristics of neurological practice at general hospitals in rural area are the high proportions of aged patients, patients with cerebrovascular diseases, patients with epilepsy in the elderly, and patients with neurological complications due to polypharmacy. The mission of this department is to cultivate clinical neurologists through the neurological practice and clinical research in aging community.
