Neurology & Neuroscience Research

The UCLA Department of Neurology is committed to ongoing research in a quest to develop new treatments and cures for all neurological conditions.


Clinical and basic science research activities are ongoing in many subspecialty areas including Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, neurorehabilitation (stroke and spinal cord injury), and post-polio.

Our faculty has been instrumental in making major breakthroughs, and some of our discoveries have revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of neurological conditions, while others have improved upon breakthroughs made at other research facilities or academic medical centers.

The Department of Neurology’s research is respected worldwide and recognized by some of the largest federal and private granting institutions by awarding significant funding to further our ongoing research efforts.

As an academic medical center, our top three priorities are clinical care, education and research. You may learn about our department’s research throughout these website pages. Here are a few links:
