Clínic Institute of Neurosciences (ICN)

The Clínic Institute of Neurosciences (ICN) is dedicated to the study and treatment of nervous system disorders. It comprises four departments: Department of Neurosurgery, Department of Neurology, Department of Psychiatry and Psychology and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychology. The ICN's main objective is to be a centre of excellence by integrating care, research and teaching. To carry out these three activities, we work together in different multidisciplinary teams, as described in the sections corresponding to the different departments, units and programmes included in the ICN.

The main programmes and units at the ICN treat diseases such as: Epilepsy, movement disorders, Alzheimer's disease and other cognitive deficits, brain cancer and other nervous system tumours, autoimmune diseases, spinal cord diseases, cerebrovascular disease, sleep disorders, schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, bipolar disorder and other mood disorders, eating disorders, attention deficit disorder, addictions, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety disorders and autism spectrum disorders.

Care includes urgent care, outpatient services, day hospital, full inpatient care and surgery, depending on the acuteness of the situation or severity of the disorder.
