Neurologic diseases are disorders of the brain, spinal cord and nerves throughout your body. Together they control all the workings of the body. When something goes wrong with a part of your nervous system, you can have trouble moving, speaking, swallowing, breathing or learning. You can also have problems with your memory, senses or mood.



There are more than 600 neurologic diseases. Major types include:

-- Diseases caused by faulty genes, such as Huntington's disease and muscular dystrophy

-- Problems with the way the nervous system develops, such as spina bifida

-- Degenerative diseases, where nerve cells are damaged or die, such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease

-- Diseases of the blood vessels that supply the brain, such as stroke

-- Injuries to the spinal cord and brain

-- Seizure disorders, such as epilepsy

-- Cancer, such as brain tumors

-- Infections, such as meningitis
