Neurodegenerative diseases are a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by a progressive degeneration of the central nervous system or peripheral nervous system structure and function. Specific neurodegenerative disorders are Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. Neurons are the nervous system's building blocks which include the brain and the spinal cord. Neurons don't usually regenerate or kill themselves, so they can't be replaced by the body when they are damaged or die. Neurodegenerative diseases are incurable and debilitating conditions which lead to progressive nerve cell degeneration and/or death. Advances in our understanding of the molecular processes underlying the dysfunction of the nervous system are important to the production of successful therapies. Neurology research offers a variety of sources to study the biological processes which accompany neurological / neurodegenerative disease.
