Alzheimer’s Disease

It is a neurodegenerative disease that generally starts slowly and gently worsens over time. It is the main cause of dementia. The most common early symptom is struggling in remembering recent events. As the disease progress, symptoms can include problems with language, disorientation (including easily getting lost), mood swings, loss of motivation, self-neglect, and behavioural issues. Late onset.

Parkinsons Disease

It is a long-term degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that mostly affects the motor system. The symptoms usually appear slowly and, as the disease worsens, non-motor symptoms become more common. The most obvious early symptoms are tremor, rigidity, slowness of movement, and difficulty with walking.

Neurodegenerative Diseases

A type of disease within cells of the CNS ceases functioning or die. The cells of the brain are jointly linked and miscommunications in one region may disrupt further brain functions, explaining that brain disorders can consequence in widespread issues. Even though there are numerous illnesses and diseases that can influence the brain, the most complex of these diseases are called neurodegenerative diseases. These diseases can influence an individual’s movement, speech, memory, intelligence, and much more. As neurodegenerative diseases are so complex, the root of various diseases remain a question. Neurodegenerative disorders generally get adverse over time and have no heal. They may be genetic or be caused by a malignancy or stroke. They also occur in persons who consume huge quantity of alcohol or are exposed to certain viruses or toxins.

Molecular Genetics

Molecular genetics is a subdivision of biology that addresses how differences in the structures or expression of DNA molecules manifests as variation among organisms. Molecular genetics frequently applies an "investigative approach" to determine the structure and/or function of genes in an organism's genome using genetic screens.  The field of study is based on the combination of several sub-fields in biology: classical Mendelian inheritance, cellular biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, and biotechnology.

Repair and Inhibition

It associates to the regrowth or repair of nervous tissues, cells or cell products. Such mechanisms may include generation of new neurons, glia, axons, myelin, or synapses. Neuroregeneration differs between the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and the central nervous system (CNS) by the functional mechanisms involved, especially in the extent and speed of repair. If an axon is injured, the distal segment will undergo Wallerian degeneration, misplacing its myelin sheath. The primal segment can either die by apoptosis or undergo the chromatolytic reaction, which is an attempt at repair. In the Central Nervous System, synaptic stripping happens as glial foot procedures invade the deceased synapse.

Inhibition is the process whereby nerves can retard or prevent the functioning of an organ or part.

Excitation

Cerebral Blood Flow

Cerebral blood flow (CBF) is the blood transfusion to the brain in a given period of time. In an adult, CBF is typically 750 millilitres per minute or 15% of the cardiac output. This compares to an average perfusion of 50 to 54 millilitres of blood per 100 grams of brain tissue per minute. An increase in hydrogen ion concentration lead to  increased cerebral blood flow. A decrease in blood viscosity will increase cerebral blood flow. An increase in carbon dioxide levels results in increased cerebral blood flow.

Metabolism

Metabolism depends on a continuous circulatory supply of glucose and oxygen to neurons and astrocytes. In astrocytes, glucose is partly converted to lactate, which is then released in the extracellular space and taken up by neurons. with neuronal activity, lactate oxidation increases.

Brain Pathology

Any disorder, disease, or pathological condition affecting the brain (e.g., tumour, stroke, traumatic injury). Pathology is the study of the causes and effects of disease or injury. Pathology highlights elements of disease: Source, methods of growth (pathogenesis), structural changes of cells (morphologic changes), and the result of alterations (clinical manifestations).

Oncology

Oncology is the learning of spinal cord neoplasms and brain, most of which are (at least eventually) highly terrifying and life-dangerous (astrocytoma, glioma, glioblastoma multiforme, ependymoma, pontine glioma, and brain stem tumours are among the most examples of these). Among the malignant brain cancers, gliomas of the brainstem and pons, glioblastoma multiforme, and high-grade (highly anaplastic) astrocytoma are among the worst.

Stem Cells Role in Neuro-Biological Treatment

Stem cells are incomparable human cells that are able to mature into many different cell types. This can range from muscle cells to brain cells. In some cases, they can also repair damaged tissues. Neural stem cells (NSCs) offer the capability to replace lost tissue after nervous system injury. Thus, stem cells can uplift host neural repair in part by secreting growth factors, and their regeneration-promoting activities can be modified by gene delivery.

It is also known as lichen simplex chronicus is not life-threatening or contagious. But the itching can be so intense or recurrent that it disrupts your sleep, sexual function and quality of life.

Neurorehabilitation centres are designed to treat patients with the nervous system or neurological disorders. Rehabilitation aims to increase function, reduce cripple symptoms, and improve a patient’s quality of life. There are different types of rehabilitation treatments like physiotherapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation psychology, speech and swallow therapy, vision therapy, and language therapy, and therapies focused on daily function and community re-integration depends on the areas of the body affected by the neurological condition.

The first-line treatment of ataxia with botulinum toxin is long established, but new preparations of the drug are likely to contribute to the future landscape.

Neuroimmunology

Neuroimmunology aims to understand the interactions of the immune and nervous systems. Neural targets involved in many aspects of homeostasis are affected by inflammatory cytokines. The most well-known autoimmune neurological disorder is multiple sclerosis, characterised by an inflammatory autoimmune attack on the myelin sheath and neurodegeneration. Neuroinflammation also plays a role in in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Huntington’s disease, stroke, chronic depression and schizophrenia. Neuroimmunology is also an important consideration in the design of neural implants. Further understanding of the balance between beneficial and pathological effects of the immune system on the neuronal system will facilitate the development of novel therapies.
