Welcome to the TeesNeuro educational website. I hope you find it interesting, informative and, above all, useful.

My name is Dr Neil Archibald, and I am a consultant neurologist at The James Cook University Hospital, in Middlesbrough.

In addition to seeing patients with all sorts of neurological disorders, I help to run the Movement Disorder service at the hospital. I also love my job — usually!

This site is for anyone with an interest in the ways in which neurological conditions affect people. Here, you will find information on neurological disorders, complemented by videos and diagrams wherever possible, so that the topics come to life. There are also links to helpful websites, and reading lists for those that want to look further.

If you are seeking expert, world-leading opinion in the field of neuroscience, then this site is not for you.

If, on the other hand, you are as curious as me about how the brain works, and why it sometimes doesn’t, then read on.

Because, as a great physician once said:

“The very first step towards success in any occupation is to become interested in it”

  1. Thanks for the talk you gave at the Neurology for GPs session at Crathorne Hall a week or so ago –
    Your passion for teaching came across loud and clear – and led me to have a look at your website .
    Great ! Will let others know of it at work.
    – One of my patients on it too – the man with Horner’s syndrome
    Thank you


  2. Great talk at the Parkinson’s conference!


  3. Hi Dr Archibald – your website (videos as well as articles) is super useful and I’d be keen on attending the Neuro revision weekend! Do you have any details (esp dates + times and location) for the next one?
    Many thanks!

    • Hi Aneesha. Thanks for the message. I run the crash course for the Newcastle students in the run up to finals but it’s not really a weekend – although that isn’t a bad idea. If I ever get around to running a separate one, then I will happily make it open access. Best of luck. Archie
