* American Academy of Neurology
The American Academy of Neurology is a medical specialty society established to advance the art and science of neurology, and thereby promote the best possible care for patients with neurological disorders by:
  • Ensuring appropriate access to neurological care.
  • Supporting and advocating for an environment which ensures ethical, high quality neurological care.
  • Providing excellence in professional education by offering a variety of programs in both the clinical aspects of neurology and the basic neurosciences to physicians and allied health professionals.
  • Supporting clinical and basic research in the neurosciences and related fields.
* BrainTalk Communities
Online patient support groups for neurology, sponsored by Massachusetts General Hospital. This is a continuing effort by the Department of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital to foster online discussions between patients, caregivers and physicians about various Neurology-related topics. Please feel free to post any questions or comments.
