The focal areas of the Department of Neurology with the Department of Clinical Neurophysiology in the Alfried Krupp Hospital in Essen, headed by Prof. Dr. med. Peter Berlit, are the treatment and therapy of acute strokes, the care of patients with neuroimmunology diseases (especially with multiple sclerosis), the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral-neurological diseases (especially inflammatory polyneuropathies such as GBS and CIDP) as well as of the neuro-autonomic function diagnostics.
