The final blog post: 30 fallacious laws of neurology
The Neurology Lounge – A blog for everything neurological
by Ibrahim Imam
3w ago
With the imminent transition of The Neurology Lounge from blog to podcast, I was driven to post a farewell blog.   This was initially intended to identify 100 immutable laws of neurology, but the more I searched, the less I found.   So I sent out an appeal on Twitter and got a few contributions, but most responses were conditional admonishments, couched with “most likely” and “until proven otherwise”.   I therefore came close to agreeing with one neurotwitter contributor, who argued that the only immutable law of neurology is, there are no immutable laws.   But I then reali ..read more

The 150 most influential neurologists in history
The Neurology Lounge – A blog for everything neurological
by Ibrahim Imam
2M ago
Who are the most influential neurologists in history? Not an easy task as the starting field is rather wide. Creating a ‘top list‘ of anything is potentially controversial because there are often no clear inclusion criteria, and justifications are often subjective.   Link I was initially swayed by the length of Wikipedia entries but cautioned myself when I noticed that the piece on Raymond Adams was very brief. Furthermore, there was no entry at all for C David Marsden! Sacrilege, I thought. I felt strongly enough ..read more

Neurochecklists – the basics
The Neurology Lounge – A blog for everything neurological
by Ibrahim Imam

Neurochecklists is a web-based application which covers the spectrum of neurological practice. The idea was triggered by Atul Gawande‘s call to physicians to develop checklist-driven medicine. Neurochecklists is therefore the culmination of a vision to commit the whole of neurology to checklists.   Neurochecklists is a comprehensive and easy-to-search database consisting of thousands of checklists. It is conceived as a mobile resource to aid all cadres of medical professionals. It has 18 categories, each consisting of chapters divided into topics. All checklists ..read more

The 36 treatments that transformed neurological practice
The Neurology Lounge – A blog for everything neurological
by Ibrahim Imam
7M ago
Neurologists used to be at the receiving end of the joke that they knew so much, but did very little to treat their patients. Acknowledged as masters of history-taking and clinical examination, neurologists unfortunately had next to nothing to cure the disorders that plague the nervous system. In that bygone era, neurologists only handed out consolation and palliation. They cagily delivered their painful verdicts, and then timidly retreated.     Today however, neurologists go to work supported by an effective and ever-expanding armamentarium. Nowadays, they ..read more
