In brief: Interesting!
I'm wondering about the reason for your question.
The one place they will commonly overlap is in treatment of childhood brain tumors. Both pediatric neurologists and pediatric oncologists become pediatric neuro-oncologists, doctors who specialize in brain tumor treatment. And in my experience, they both do an excellent job of it!
