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, dying family awareness, and Huntington's disease - occur as a result of neurodegenerative processes. Such diseases are incurable, leading to progressive deterioration and / or death of neuron cells. As research is underway, 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 in many different levels of neuronal circry ranging from molecules to systemic. The greatest risk factor for neurodegenerative diseases is aging. Mitochondrial DNA mutations as well as oxidative stress both contribute to aging. Many of these diseases are late onset, meaning there is some factor that changes as a person ages for each disease.
