• Injuries
  • Many affected individuals only become aware of the disease when they notice painless injuries and burns or when they seek medical advice for slowly healing wounds or foot ulcers. (wikipedia.org)
  • autoimmune
  • Some demyelinating diseases are caused by genetics, some by infectious agents, some by autoimmune reactions, and some by unknown factors. (wikipedia.org)
  • Evolutionary considerations for the role of prolonged cortical myelination as a risk factor for demyelinating disease are particularly pertinent given that genetics and autoimmune deficiency hypotheses fail to explain many cases of demyelinating disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Thyroid autoimmune diseases can also be volatile: hyperthyroidism can interchange with hypothyroidism and euthyroidism. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnosis
  • Despite its rarity, the patient's ethnic background and the typical radiographic findings should prompt the clinicians to include NBD in the differential diagnosis of optic neuritis and demyelinating disease in the young. (wikipedia.org)
  • mechanisms
  • Advances in molecular genetics have enabled identification of most genes associated with HSAN I. However, the molecular mechanisms that underlie the disease are not fully understood and are under investigation. (wikipedia.org)
  • The field draws on both neuroscience and developmental biology to provide insight into the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which complex nervous systems develop. (wikipedia.org)
  • Synaptopathies are attracting research interest because they provide an insight into fundamental mechanisms of synaptic transmission and because an improved understanding of disease mechanisms may lead to new treatments. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • In hospitals that possess clinical neurophysiology facilities, the major diagnostic modalities employed include: Electromyography and nerve conduction studies: These diagnostic tests of the peripheral nervous system, especially useful in evaluating diseases of the muscles, nerves, and nerve roots. (wikipedia.org)
  • disruption
  • The extended period of cortical myelination in humans may allow greater opportunity for disruption in myelination, resulting in the onset of demyelinating disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Neuroscience
  • Neuroscience (or neurobiology) is the scientific study of the nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • The scope of neuroscience has broadened over time to include different approaches used to study the molecular, cellular, developmental, structural, functional, evolutionary, computational, psychosocial and medical aspects of the nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • As a result of the increasing number of scientists who study the nervous system, several prominent neuroscience organizations have been formed to provide a forum to all neuroscientists and educators. (wikipedia.org)
  • The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to neuroscience: Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Neurolinguistics Neuroimaging functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Positron emission tomography Systems neuroscience is a subdiscipline of neuroscience which studies the function of neural circuits and systems. (wikipedia.org)
  • Neural oscillation Molecular neuroscience is a branch of neuroscience that examines the biology of the nervous system with molecular biology, molecular genetics, protein chemistry and related methodologies. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nutritional neuroscience Neurochemistry Computational neuroscience includes both the study of the information processing functions of the nervous system, and the use of digital computers to study the nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Condition
  • By providing the information contained herein we are not diagnosing, treating, curing, mitigating, or preventing any type of disease or medical condition. (greenmedinfo.com)
  • While it is commonly regarded as a condition peculiar to malnourished people with alcohol misuse, a variety of diseases can lead to Wernicke's encephalopathy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Therefore
  • Therefore, the role of the human-specific prolonged period of cortical myelination is an important evolutionary consideration in the pathogenesis of demyelinating disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • neural
  • Brain mapping Electrophysiology Extracellular recording Intracellular recording Brain stimulation Electroencephalography Intermittent rhythmic delta activity Category:Neurophysiology Neuroanatomy is the study of the anatomy of nervous tissue and neural structures of the nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • In other words, it can distinguish NBD from non-NBD neural disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • progression
  • It is predicted that decreasing the amount of TTR protein will result in a decrease in the formation of TTR deposits, and thus slow or stop disease progression. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • With the progression of the disease, the affected individuals lose the ability to feel pain in their feet and legs. (wikipedia.org)
  • onset
  • The onset of the disease varies between the 2nd and 5th decade of life, albeit congenital or childhood onset has occasionally been reported. (wikipedia.org)
  • nerve
  • however, information for them is conveyed centrally in two distinct systems that both use the same nerve bundle and spinothalamic tract. (wikipedia.org)
  • dementia
  • What is known for sure is that by the turn of the 20th century the old concept of insanity had become fragmented into 'diseases' (psychoses) such as paranoia, dementia praecox, manic-depressive insanity and epilepsy (Emil Kraepelin's classification). (wikipedia.org)
  • distal
  • The hallmark of the disease is the marked loss of pain and temperature sensation in the distal parts of the lower limbs. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • Behçet's disease is recognized as a disease that cause inflammatory perivasculitis, inflammation of the tissue around a blood or lymph vessel, in practically any tissue in the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • Study
  • The purpose of this study is to collect data on the incidence, complications, economic burden and impact on the quality of life in adults aged ≥ 50 years with HZ disease in Italy. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The earliest study of the nervous system dates to ancient Egypt. (wikipedia.org)
