No-one likes to be considered by their doctor as a number. However, in this lecture I will try to convince you that it is common for doctors to consider their patients in numbers and that this practice is actually very useful and helpful. I will also illustrate by some examples of my own research in neurology that this practice can be supported and further improved with the help of mathematics.
