Nervous System

 

Neurodegenerative diseases are a large group of disabling disorders of the nervous system. In most cases, there is overwhelming evidence of impaired mitochondrial function as a causative factor in these diseases.

More recently, evidence has emerged for impaired mitochondrial in neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Alzheimer's disease.

Scientific experts provide a concise overview of the major findings in recent years highlighting the importance of healthy mitochondria for a healthy neuron.
