New discoveries are being made rapidly on how the nervous system affects our senses and motor functions. The scope of study is immense and the department is already progressing on the path of scientific research. The department has seen a variety of cases related to brain, trauma and spine. Besides routine cases, advanced procedures are being carried out for head injury, brain and spinal tumours and chronic SDH. The Neurosciences Department includes 2 sets of faculty: neurosurgery and neurology. During their final year, undergraduates are also involved in the study of head injuries and clinical neurology.

The department encourages research and several studies are underway. Currently, the department is collaborating with Newcastle University in the UK in conducting Surgical Trial in lobar ICH (STITCH).
The Neurosciences Department has some cutting edge facilities to deal with this sensitive subject. Students can gain experience through clinical practice, as well as theoretical knowledge. Facilities include a CT scan machine providing services at an affordable cost, and an excellent EEG laboratory serving all the seizure disorder patients. The department receives expert support from the Physiotherapy Department for the rehabilitation of pre-operative and post-stroke patients.
