Abstract

Subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord is a potentially reversible myelopathy typically associated with vitamin B12 deficiency. There is predominant involvement of spinal cord posterior and lateral tracts, and manifestations include peripheral paraesthesia, impaired proprioce...read more

Frontotemporal Dementia

Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) refers to disorders caused by progressive neuronal loss in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. Here is the latest research on FTD and FTD-associated disorders.

Motor Neuron Disease

Motor neuron diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and spinal muscular atrophy are progressive neurodegenerative diseases that result in the death of motor neurons. Discover the latest research on motor neuron disease here.

ALS

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neuron disease, is associated with the death of neurons that control voluntary muscles. Discover the latest research on ALS here.

Paranoid Disorders

Paranoid disorders are psychiatric disorders with the suspicion and belief that others are plotting against them, leading to mistrust of others. These symptoms of paranoia can be seen in other psychiatric disorders including dementia and schizophrenia. Here is the latest research on paranoid disorders.

Lewy Body Disease

Lewy Body Disease, associated with abnormal deposits of proteins like alpha-synuclein in the brain, causes a decline in mental abilities. Here is the latest on this progressive neurological disorder.

Psychotic Affective Disorders

Psychotic affective disorders are a set of psychiatric mood disorders that include depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia with psychotic behavior. This is a broad class of psychiatric illnesses and employs a complex individualized treatment plan. Here is the latest research on psychotic affective disorders.

Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration

Frontotemporal lobar degeneration or frontotemporal dementia refers to a group of uncommon disorders that occur as a result of progressive nerve cell loss in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. Here is the latest research.

Lichtheim's Disease

Lichtheim's disease or subacute combined degeneration of spinal cord is a degenerative disease associated with deficiencies in vitamin B12, vitamin E, and copper. Here is a latest research.

Neuromuscular Disorders

Neuromuscular disorders result in impaired functioning of the muscles. Discover the latest research on these disorders, including ALS, and the underlying genetic aspects here.

Neuronal Cell Types

There are diverse ranges of neurons, which are defined by their structural, functional, connectional and molecular properties. For example, some type of neurons includes sensory, sympathetic, and motor neurons. Discover the latest research on neuronal cell types here.
