Founded in 2004, the Brain Center is integrated with the Departments of Neurosurgery, Neurology, Psychiatry and the Neuroscience Care Unit (NCU). It enjoys a high reputation and is in the leading level in the country. Ranking the fifth nationally in neurosurgery, the Center is not only known for its medical and surgical management of neurological diseases, but also for its intensive care at Neuro ICU, the earliest and one the biggest ICU for neuro diseases in China.

Multiple inter-disciplinary programs around certain conditions or diseases, such as epilepsy, stroke, cerebrovascular intervention, glioma, etc., are established at the Center. It is the Research Center of Stroke Diagnosis and Treatment Technology, Clinical Medical Research Center of Neurological Diseases and Key Provincial Laboratory of Medical Neurobiology in Zhejiang. It is also one of China’s first advanced treatment centers for Parkinson’s Disease, the national training base for the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease, and one of the first advanced demonstration models of stroke center in China. The Center trained most of the leading neurosurgeons and neurologists in East China and is highly appealing to foreign trainees.

Inspiring results have been achieved in the investigation into brain-computer interface (BCI) research. The technology has enabled a 72-year-old quadriplegia patient to use his “mind power” to perform major upper limb movements and provided a refractory epilepsy patient with neurostimulation therapy to effectively control her seizure attack.

Advancements have been made in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological and motor disorders, too. The neurogenetic team discovered the pathogenic mutation that causes paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia (PKD). Detection of the mutation has become the gold standard for PKD diagnosis. In addition, the team completed the first mutation spectrum of Wilson’s disease (WD) patients in China after analyzing ATP7B gene mutation in the world’s largest cohort. Further on, they developed a genetic diagnosis kit with >90% sensitivity for early WD.
