Main directions of research activities:
- Neurooncology, including advanced structural and functional neuroimaging diagnostics, paraneoplastic syndromes;
- problems of early diagnostics, co-morbidities and complex treatment of multiple sclerosis, screening and differential diagnosis by use of MRT, SPECT and PET of neurodegenerative diseases;
- neuroepidemiology of dementias
- diagnostic and therapeutic problems in movement disorders, dysautonomia in Parkinson's disease;
- new approaches in the study of language functions in brain damages;
- neurophtalmology, modern morphological and functional diagnostic imaging of epilepsy, neurogenetics, cerebrovascular diseases (prognostic significance of polysomnography in acute disorder of cerebral circulation, invasive and noninvasive diagnostics, endovascular treatment of acute disorders of cerebral circulation, treatment of cerebral edema with hypothermia), polysomnography changes in patients with ischemic stroke;
- development of a programme by using interdisciplinary teams for treating patients with respiratory disorders in some neurological diseases, muscle monitoring of intensive ill patients, respiratory disorders in neuromuscular diseases, plasmapheresis and plasma exchange in autoimmune diseases of the nervous system.
The Department staff is the core of the Bulgarian Society of Neurology - Regional Branch - Varna. The team is among the founders of the created for the first time in Bulgaria Neurooncology Association and the Bulgarian Association of Neurosonology and Cerebral Hemodynamics. Under the auspices and with the assistance of the European Federation of Neurological Societies and the European Society of Neurooncology, together with MU - Varna, the Department staff conducts highly evaluated research and training forums.
The lecturers are involved and operate in international clinical studies for treatment of various nosological entities (dementia, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, cerebral vascular disease). This constitutes the basis for the provision of continuous qualification in accordance with the latest global diagnostic and therapeutic achievements, as well as recognition of the high quality of lecturing and diagnostic - therapeutic activities at the Department.
