The Department of Neurology employs a large staff from a variety of disciplines at the University Hospital in Magdeburg. In addition to doctors and nurses there are neuropsychologists, neurophysiologists, physiotherapists and speech therapists to assist the recovery of patients. Tests and analyses are carried out in the neurochemical laboratory. In addition to the laboratory, there is a magnetic resonance imaging working group. Finally, one should note the importance of the medical archive, which is responsible for storing data and optimizing the lines of communication that allow a patient's case history to be followed.
