Neurodegenerative Diseases Related News

Neurodegenerative diseases are those conditions which primarily affect the neurons in the human brain. Neurons are the building blocks of the nervous system which normally don’t reproduce or replace themselves. Damage or disease can lead to such neurodegenerative diseases as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Huntington’s disease.
