50 Best Blogs for Neurology Students

The workings and nuances of the human body understandably fascinates almost everyone, but only a (comparative) handful of individuals channel that curiosity into passion. And the passion, in turn, into a medical career. Neurologists, neuroscientists, and their contemporaries in cognitive psychology, science, and/or development narrow their focus to – of course – the nervous system. Most of them tend to emphasize the brain over the other elements due to its status as one of the most essential organs for survival and fascinating complexity fraught with unexplored nooks and crannies. Students hoping to pursue a career on the front lines of unlocking the secrets of the human brain would do well to hit the internet in search of the latest news, views, and progresses throughout the field of neurology. Remaining mindful of the past and present can do nothing but help prepare them to better the future.
