Neurodegeneration is a progressive loss of structure or function of neurons, including death of neurons. Many neurodegenerative diseases - including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, lethal familial insomnia, and Huntington's disease - occur as a result of neurodegenerative processes. Such diseases are incurable, leading to progressive deterioration and / or cell death of the neuron. As research continues, many similarities emerge that relate these diseases to one another in the lower cellular environment. Finding these parallels offers hope for medical advances that can correct many diseases at the same time. There are many similarities between different neurodegenerative diseases including assemblies of cell death proteins. Neurodegeneration can be found at many different levels of neuronal circry ranging from molecules to systemic.
