The Department of Neurological Sciences is the academic structure that is concerned with research, teaching and assistance in the field of Neurology.
There are 4 full Professors, 6 associate Professors and 12 instructors and researchers, 85 technicians, nurses, and administrative personnel and numerous research and study grant awardees.
The research activity is organised in Study Centres for specific pathologies and in specialised laboratories.
The main subjects of study are epilepsy, sleep disturbances, disorders of the neurovegetative system, and neurodegenerative diseases, with particular attention to the aspects of advanced neurophysiological and neurobiological diagnostics and innovative approaches to therapy.
The group involved in research and study of neurodegenerative disease represents and integrates the activity of both clinical centers and laboratories (Neuropatology laboratory, Neurogenetic laboratory, Neuropharmacology laboratory, center for the study and research on extrapyramidal disorders, center for the study of cerebral aging, Unity of evaluation of Alzheimer Disease) and focuses on transmissible spongiform encephalopaties, degenerative dementias, extrapyramidal disorders, mitochondrial encephalomyopathies, using a multidisciplinary clinical, biochemical, molecular and neuropathological approach.

There is a PhD program in the Medicine of Sleep, and a residency program in Neurology and in Infant Neuropsychiatrics.
The Department is the principal seat for the 1st level degree course for Neurophysiopathology Techniques.
