Neurodegenerative Disorders

Neurodegenerative disorders are classified as the progressive loss and dysfunction of neurons. Some common neurodegenerative disorders include Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Huntington's disease, Motor Neuron Disease, Parkinson’s disease, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, Charcot-Marie Tooth disease and much more.

The listed disorders, among others, are debilitating conditions which affect the ability of people to perform everyday tasks such as walking, talking, breathing, swallowing and much more. At present, there are treatments to help slow the progression of neurodegenerative disorders but there are no cures for these diseases.

Neuroscience Biomarkers

Neuroscience biomarkers are useful research tools which can contribute towards both early detections and the development of therapeutic interventions. Biomarkers can provide information on the stage of the disease and it’s progression.
