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.

Structural biology is the study of molecular structure and dynamics of biological macromolecules like proteins and nucleic acids, and how changes in their structures affect their function. Structural biology is the combination of the principles of molecular biology, biochemistry, and biophysics. Bio-molecules are too small to be viewed by even the advanced microscope. Large number of macromolecules assemblies have been reconstructed by fitting higher resolution crystal structures of individual components into lower resolution electron microscopy reconstruction of the entire complex.

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.

Neurotherapy is the Kind of treatment for neurodegenerative disorders. The philosophy behind neurotherapy involves activating or deactivating to the organ(s), through pressure or massage on the nerve channels to stimulate or depress the blood, & other body fluids and the nerve currents. The therapy focuses at the cause not at the symptoms of the disease. This method has no side effects and no instruments get involved in this treatment.

Neurological disorders are a type of disorders which means structural, biochemical and electrical abnormalities of brain, spinal cord or nerves in the nervous system. With the help of Neurology and Clinical Neuropsychology, these disorders can be studied and treated after neurological examination. There are two main broadest division called central nervous system disorders and Peripheral nervous system Disorders. The common symptoms of neurological disorders are paralysis, muscle weakness, poor coordination, loss of sensation, Seizures, Confusion, pain and altered levels of consciousness.

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.

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.

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.
