Reference and educational apps are the most common apps relevant to neurologists, helping them find visual and textual information for common neurologic conditions.
Other apps focus on helping neurologists develop differential diagnoses using specific symptoms or signs, or providing them with practical tools such as decision-making tools, neurosurgical protocols, and medical calculators, which are indispensable in clinical practice.
Here, we listed some of the neurology medical apps, highly popular among the neurologists, students, and other medical professionals.
Neuro Localizer app is designed to help medical students and clinicians learn neuroanatomy and identify neurological lesions based on exam findings.
The app has a simple and easy-to-use interface that features an image of a gingerbread man that users can tap on - just like on any anatomy figure - to bring up a list of signs and symptoms.
After selecting the exact problem by providing additional details, the app displays an animation showing the spinal tract with nerves affected, also highlighting where the nerve decussates.
Neuro Localizer app is available for free, however, only on iOS.

Nerve Whiz app comes from the 'same kitchen' as the Neuro Localizer app, i.e. the University Of Michigan Department Of Neurology.
This app has been developed with a similar goal, which is to help medical students and clinicians digest difficult-to-learn subject of the motor and sensory innervations and learn them in an easy way, thanks to the nerve charts and diagrams similar to those in Neuro Localizer app.
Nerve Whiz app is primarily an educational app, but it lacks some sort of quiz option that would help medical students test their knowledge.
Adding neurologic physical examination guidelines and tools would be a fantastic addition since the app is also aimed at clinicians.
Unlike Neuro Localizer app, Nerve Whiz is available on both iOS and Android for free.
Neurology Advisor App
Neurology Advisor is a free app that offers neurologists a comprehensive knowledge base of practical information and resources in neurology to aid in the decision-making process at the point of care.
The app aggregates daily news, full-length features, medical slideshows, neurology case studies, and opinion articles written by experts in the field.
It also provides concise drug monographs and free continuing medical education (CME) activities for neurologists and other healthcare professionals.
Neurology Advisor is available on Android and iOS devices.
NeuroMind is a free, interactive app that provides clinical decision support, as well as clinical calculators, classification and grading systems to help clinicians keep their neurology skills sharp at the point of care.
It also allows collaborative content management including discussion and commenting on scores.
Neuro Mind app is a creation of one man, Dr. Pieter Kubben, a senior resident in neurosurgery in the Netherlands, and it is officially supported by Surgical Neurology International and the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS).
NeuroMind was the number 1 downloaded neurosurgical app for the iPhone, and it still remains one of the best neurology apps for both iOS and Android devices.
Neuro Toolkit App
Neuro Toolkit is an up-to-date, simple, and straightforward app designed to assist neurology practitioners in the evaluation of patients in a wide range of settings, from the emergency room to the outpatient clinic.
Neuro Toolkit is a comprehensive decision-making app that provides a large set of medical calculators, clinical scoring scales, and other reference information to all neurology practitioners.
Unfortunately, it's only available on the iOS platform for $4.99.

Stroke Trials App
Stroke Trials app is a compilation of landmark articles in vascular neurology intended for quick reference for neurology practitioners. Articles are listed alphabetically and may be also searched by keywords.
The author of the app linked articles allowing users for full access. Most of these articles are free, however, some might require institutional or individual login.
Besides neurology reference, the app also includes reference on antithrombotics therapy. The app is updated periodically with additional trials.
It is available for free on iOS and Android.
Neurosurgery Survival Guide App
Neurosurgery Survival Guide is an app developed by a neurosurgeon aimed at neurosurgery residents, interns, medical students, and mid-level practitioners.
It provides a quick high-yield reference for the clinical knowledge and information needed to care for neurosurgical patients.
The app contains hundreds of unique topics, which are all kept up-to-date with the latest in practice recommendations.
These topics cover things like the complete neuro exam (including rapid reference to many protocols), risk calculators, neuroanatomy, neuroimaging, neurosurgery care protocols, neurocritical care, and more.
Topics are supported by dozens of updated graphics and professional illustrations.
Neurosurgery Survival Guide app is available on iOS and Android for $6.99.
