Cerebrovascular disease is a disease of the blood vessels in the brain, especially the arteries, and it is one of the leading stroke risk factors.
Neurological disorders are conditions that affect the central and peripheral nervous systems. Together, these systems include the brain, the spinal cord, and the nerves that extend out of these areas and into the rest of the body.Some common types of neurological disorders include headache, epilepsy, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s Disease. These diseases affect different aspects of the nervous system and have their own associated causes, symptoms, and treatments.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an immune disorder that primarily affects the central nervous system, so it’s also a neurological disorder.
A recent case report describes how one person achieved long-term migraine relief and needed less medication by following a diet that included more dark, leafy greens. The authors of the report conclude that the whole food, plant-based diet may have these effects by increasing beta carotenoid levels or helping people whose migraine does not respond to medication identify potential triggers.
Clinicians have found that COVID-19 is associated with neurological symptoms.Scientists need to conduct more research to understand how COVID-19 is linked to these neurological symptoms.
Schizophrenia is a highly inheritable brain disorder. Previous studies have proved that neurological soft signs (NSS) are strongly associated with the cortical-subcortical-cerebellum circuit, the main source responsible for the clinical and behavioral manifestations observed in patients with schizophrenia.
Many people who recover from COVID-19 go on to experience debilitating cognitive effects, including brain fog and problems with memory and attention.
The number of people with small fiber neuropathy has been increasing over the past 20 years. The increase could be due to greater awareness as well as the increase in obesity. People with small fiber neuropathy should be screened for diabetes and heart disease.
Currently, there is no strong evidence to suggest that surgery works reliably as a treatment option for migraine across a large population. Research supports its use for occipital migraine, but this is a different condition.
Brain changes its rhythm within minutes of therapeutic stimulation during DBS surgery for treatment-resistant depression
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for many patients suffering with treatment-resistant depression, but exactly how it works is not known. Scientists worldwide are racing for objective biomarkers of DBS treatment efficacy so that this experimental approach can be optimized, approved and disseminated to those in need.
