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”
