|English term or phrase: brain medicine|
|What is the official term for the branch of medicine covering brain surgery, strokes, haemorraghes, physical diseases of the brain, etc.|
It is not "otolaryngology", which only covers ear, nose and throat.
I cannot find either the English or the German equivalent.
Who can help?

"brain medicine" was obviously a bad source term, which I had chosen out of desperation. "Neurology" was defined by Webster's as "The science of the nervous system in health and disease". WHile the brain is a part of the nervous system, I had always considered it as separate, like the heart and the veinous system are distinct. But there apparently is no other term in medical science for this, so "neurology" it is.
