Neurodegeneration is the progressive loss of structure or function of neurons, including death of neurons. Many neurodegenerative diseases – including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and Huntington's – occur as a result of neurodegenerative processes. Such diseases are incurable, resulting in progressive degeneration and/or death of neuron cells. Many neurodegenerative diseases are caused by genetic mutations, most of which are located in completely unrelated genes. Neurodegeneration can be found in many different levels of neuronal circuitry ranging from molecular to systemic.

The study of nervous system that deals with physiology, anatomy, molecular biology of neuron and neural networks is called neuroscience. Neuroscience is also called neurobiology. The homo sapiens brain contains around one hundred billion neurons and one hundred trillion synapses, it consists of thousands of distinguishable sub-structures, connected to each other in synaptic networks. The majority of the approximately 20,000–25,000 genes belonging to the human genome are expressed specifically in axons; axons is used to transmit electric signals from one to one another which is connected with the help of synapses. The other set are called dendrites is to receive the information which is transmitted by the axons.

The general diseases or malfunctions of the nerves is normally referred to as neuropathy. It is classified according to the types or location of nerves that are affected by damage due to injury or disease. Neuropathy from the cause of diabetes is called Diabetic Neuropathy because it is most commonly associated with Diabetes. The symptoms of Neuropathy are loss of feeling in feet, Tingling, Extreme sensitivity to touch, paresthesia, loss of reflexes and cramping. Electromyography, nerve conduction velocity test (NCV) and nerve biopsy are the test and exam to diagnose Neuropathy. Antidepressants, Anticonvulsants, Opioids and Opioid-like drugs are the oral medications for neuropathy that have been successfully used to help the pain of neuropathy.

A stroke is developed when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or blocked, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die. A stroke may be caused by a blocked artery (ischemic stroke) or the leaking or bursting of a blood vessel . Many factors can increase your stroke risk.. Potentially treatable stroke risk factors include: Being overweight or obese, Physical inactivity, Heavy or binge drinking and cigarette smoking or exposure to second hand smoke, High cholesterol, and Diabetes.

Many stroke prevention strategies are the same as strategies to prevent heart disease. In general, healthy lifestyle recommendations include: Controlling high blood pressure (hypertension), Lowering the amount of cholesterol and saturated fat in your diet, Quitting tobacco use, Controlling diabetes, Maintaining a healthy weight, Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, Exercising regularly, Drinking alcohol in moderation, if at all, Treating obstructive sleep apnea, Avoiding illegal drugs.

A stroke is an emergency of medical aspect that requires early treatment that indicates early action can minimize brain damage and potential complications. Person affected by stroke addresses cognition and/or behavioral problems that includes problems using languages, vision and perception problems and sudden bursts of emotions.

Dementia is a syndrome characterized by cognitive or memory impairments that describes the symptoms of many conditions that affects the brain. The commonly seen conditions are Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Symptoms seen at early stages are memory loss, personality changes, withdrawal and confusion.

Vascular imaging is a key component in the brain stroke 2018 International Conference for comprehensive stroke diagnosis and cause based therapy. Siemens supports with the full spectrum of angiography systems available today. Siemens analysis tools reduce the information load by removing distracting visual input (e.g. skull base) in intra-arterial (X-ray), CT, MR, and US angiography. Consequently, it assists in focusing on vascular changes and interventional procedures such as clot removal, thrombolysis and stent implantation. Tools for imaging of brain function includes Magnetic resonance spectroscopy, Single photon emission computed tomography, Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), Magnetoencephalography (MEG).

Hemorrhagic stroke involves bleeding within the brain, which damages nearby brain tissue and there are two types of hemorrhagic stroke: intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), which occurs with bleeding into the brain tissue and subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), which occurs with bleeding into the subarachnoid space beneath the arachnoid mater of the meninges. Causes of hemorrhagic stroke include Aneurysms, arteriovenous malformation (AVM), and Cerebral amyloid angiopathy.

Stroke is one of the main leading causes of long term adult disability which is affecting approximately 795,000 people each year in the USA.
Someone who suffered a stroke can improve functions and sometimes remarkable recoveries by early recovery and rehabilitation.
The goal of a stroke rehabilitation program is to help you relearn skills which are lost when stroke affected part of your brain. Stroke rehabilitation can help to regain independence and improve the quality of life.

Stroke is more common in boys than girls even after controlling for differences in frequency of causes trauma and these appears to be a predominance of stroke in black children. This difference remains true even after accounting for sickle cell disease patients with stroke and moreover seizures are common in both ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes. They occur in up to 50% of children with strokes are not restricted to any age group and are not limited to any specific seizure type. A stroke or cerebral vascular accident (CVA) in children is typically considered to be a rare event. The reported incidence of combined and hemorrhagic ischemic pediatric stroke ranges from 1.2 to 13 cases per 100,000 children under 18 years of age.
Non-contrast head computed tomography (CT) is sensitive for acute bleeding and should be obtained emergently to exclude a cause for hemorrhagic stroke. Despite increasingly advanced imaging techniques the adult literature suggests that a lumbar puncture is still needed to rule out a subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Cancer and ischemic stroke are two of the most common causes of death. However, the main path mechanisms of stroke in cancer patients are not well known and can only be established based on accurate knowledge of the characteristics of cancer and their related strokes. Ischemic stroke and cancer independently carry a large burden of morbidity and mortality as the second and fourth leading cause of death and they each represent an enormous expenditure as a percentage of health care resources, manifested by lost productivity and disrupted family structures due to death and dependency. Cancer patients frequently have strokes, both from traditional risk factors and from mechanisms thought unique to malignancy. The most frequent causes of stroke in cancer patients are traditional cerebrovascular risk factors such as hyperlipidemia, hypertension, diabetes, tobacco use and atrial fibrillation.

The Neurovascular surgery specializes in the management of complex central nervous system vascular disorders including arteriovenous malformations, aneurysms, cavernous angiomas and carotid and intracerebral stenosis. Surgery and vascular procedures can be used to prevent stroke to treat or to repair damaged blood vessels or malformations in and around the brain. Carotid endarterectomy is a surgical procedure in which a surgeon removes fatty deposits or plaque from the inside of one of the carotid arteries and this procedure is performed to prevent stroke.

The randomized clinical research study shows a dramatic improvement in restoring blood back to the brain in arteries. This study involved minimally invasive clot procedure known as stent thrombectomy and this standard clot procedure called as tissue plasminogen activator. In patients with more severe strokes, each trail shows the striking benefit of catheter-based clot removal to restore blood flow in brain arteries. This can be used to improve the treatment for heart attacks known as acute stroke therapy. There is another new treatment for the stroke shown to be very effective that and it will be used as a part of standard stroke care.
