Pediatric Neurology

Section Head

Bradley L. Schlaggar, MD, PhD

The Pediatric Neurology Division provides care for a large number of children with acute and chronic neurological diseases affecting brain, peripheral nerves and muscle.

Members of the Division play an important role in the Pediatric Epilepsy Center, the Cerebral Palsy Center, and the Comprehensive Neurofibromatosis Program at Washington University and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

To make an appointment, you may call the programs listed above or you may call the Pediatric Neurology Clinic at (314) 454-6120.

In conjunction with our clinical activity, we teach Washington University medical students and the house staff at St. Louis Children's Hospital. Division members also have a variety of clinical and basic research interests including epilepsy physiology, pharmacology, and epidemiology; disorders of higher cortical function in children; magnetic resonance spectroscopy; brain tumors; the chemistry of neurofilaments; the pathophysiology of CNS injury; and the sequelae of meningitis.
