The Department of Neurology at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University aims for the highest quality of clinical care, the best training
experience for our medical students, residents, and fellows, and the performance of
Our teaching mission includes medical students, residents, and fellows undergoing
advanced training. Research activities in the department include both basic science
and clinical and translational investigations. Additionally, our multidisciplinary
Neuroscience Center of Excellence facilitates active collaborations with subspecialists
from other departments including general neurosurgery, neuroradiology, neuro-otology,
neuro-ophthalmology, functional neurosurgery (deep brain stimulation and epilepsy
surgery), neuro-gastroenterology and basic science. Our facility houses a wide variety
of other specialties including a level I trauma center, and seven ICUs (neurology,
shock trauma, surgery, pediatric, neonatal, cardiology, and medical).
We have a strong foundation in general neurology and neurological subspecialties including:
- General neurology/headache
- Movement disorders
- Neurocognitive disorders
- Neuromuscular disorders
- Multiple sclerosis
- Clinical neurophysiology
- Neurocritical care
- Interventional neurology
- Child neurology

CBD normalizes levels and function of two proteins - TREM2 and IL-33 - key to reducing the accumulation of beta-amyloid plaque, a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease, and improves cognition as it also reduces levels of the immune protein IL-6, associated with the high inflammation levels found in the disease.
Henson is a neuro-oncologist with more than two decades of experience treating patients with brain tumors and other tumors of the nervous system.
Scientists want to know more about how an inexpensive, low-risk treatment may improve recovery from the most deadly type of stroke. Called remote ischemic conditioning, or RIC, it involves successive bouts of compressing then relaxing an arm or leg with a blood pressure-like cuff, most typically for four cycles of five minutes of inflation followed by five minutes of deflation and enables better use of a natural pathway for brain repair.
When the brain isn’t getting enough oxygen, estrogen produced by neurons in both males and females hyperactivates another brain cell type called astrocytes to step up their usual support and protect brain function.
