Cory Myers, DO, had a long-standing interest in the brain and neuroscience, considering research and psychiatry before settling on neurology.

The first month of 2022 saw the publication of 18 new peer-reviewed journal articles from members of the Duke Neurology Department.

Research authored by members of the Duke Neurology Department published during the final month of 2021 advanced our knowledge of stroke, epilepsy, dystonia, and other conditions.
