Special Issue Introduction:

Neurodegenerative diseases are defined as various diseases which affect primarily the neurons of human brain. Our nervous system is made from neurons which are responsible for the proper functioning of brain and spinal cord. The damage of neurons is irreversible as they cannot reproduce and regenerate in human body. The common neurodegenerative disorders include Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Myotonic dystrophy, Creutzfeldt Jakob syndrome etc. The neurodegenerative diseases are not curable and the weakening conditions that result in progressive degeneration and death of nerve cells. The major manifestation of these diseases are difficulty in movement (called ataxias), or impairment of mental functioning (called dementias).
The topics of interest include, but not limited to:
      Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias
      Parkinson’s disease (PD) and PD-related disorders
      Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
      Creutzfeldt Jakob syndrome or Prion disease
      Motor neurone diseases (MND)
      Huntington’s disease (HD)
      Myotonic dystrophy (DM)
      Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA)
      Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)

Keywords:

Neurodegenerative diseases, dementias, ataxias
