Neurodegeneration
Neurodegeneration is the umbrella term for the progressive loss of structure or function of neurons, including death of neurons. Many neurodegenerative diseases including amyotrophic lateral sclerosisParkinson'sAlzheimer's, and Huntington's occur as a result of neurodegenerative processes. Such diseases are incurable, resulting in progressive degeneration and/or death of neuron cells. As research progresses, many similarities appear that relate these diseases to one another on a sub-cellular level. Discovering these similarities offers hope for therapeutic advances that could ameliorate many diseases simultaneously. There are many parallels between different neurodegenerative disorders including atypical protein assemblies as well as induced cell death. Neurodegeneration can be found in many different levels of neuronal circuitry ranging from molecular to systemic.

Neurodegenerative Erkrankung
Als neurodegenerative Erkrankungen (griechisch νέυρο-, néuro-, „Nerv[en]-“ und lateinisch dēgenerāre, „aus-“ oder „entarten“) bezeichnet man eine Gruppe von meist langsam fortschreitenden, erblichen oder sporadisch auftretenden Erkrankungen des Nervensystems. Hauptmerkmal ist der fortschreitende Verlust von Nervenzellen (Neurodegeneration), der zu verschiedenen neurologischen Symptomen – darunter häufig zu Demenz und Bewegungsstörungen – führt. Die Erkrankungen können in unterschiedlichen Lebensaltern auftreten, verlaufen diffus oder generalisiert und rufen charakteristische histologische Schädigungsmuster hervor.
