Explore neurological phenomenons: Dyslexia, Synesthesia, & Todd's Syndrome

"I think we are all fascinated and a little mystified by how the brain works. One of the most mysterious of the physical sciences is neurological science."

JOHN F. KENNEDY, 1952.

Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. Neurology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions and disease involving the central and peripheral nervous system (and its subdivisions, the autonomic nervous system and the somatic nervous system); including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscle. Neurological practice relies heavily on the field of neuroscience, which is the scientific study of the nervous system.

Neurologist David M. Weber has spent years of research studying three specific neurological phenomenons: Dyslexia, Synesthesia, and Todd’s Syndrome. He worked close with the curators to provide people with neurological experiences that many people experience on a daily experience while other people don’t have a clue these phenomenons exist.

“This exhibit is the highlight of my career. I have discovered mind-boggling systems and connections within the brain that other neurologists haven’t thought about tapping into. The feedback has been amazing, I’m excited to share this with the world.”

Ambrose A. Fasolak, M.D.

Neurosurgeon, John Hopkins Hospital
