    Neurology of the newborn is an expanding field. The available evidence-based data still have "gaps," and practical approaches are changing rapidly. There are significant advances in neonatal neurology, reflecting an enormous progress that was made over the past decades in identifying and treating newborn brain diseases. There are still un-answered questions, and newly emerging data is rather the rule than the exception. The explosion of knowledge and interest in basic science and clinical management issues has impacted all the many practitioners involved in newborn care. There are still enormous opportunities for new knowledge through well-designed longitudinal descriptive studies and multicenter clinical trials. These complicated situations require cooperation between neonatologists and neurologists. In this discussion, we cover relevant sections in newborn neurology that serve as a useful tool for professionals with special interests in neurology of the newborn.
