    Motor neurone disease or more commonly known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a genetic disorder that targets the motor neurones of the human nervous system. More specifically the disease targets the movement aspects of the human body by slowly degenerating the motor neurones located in the spinal cord. If the disorder is not treated efficiently the situation will worsen to a point where the respiration system will become affected making breathing an increasingly difficult task. Other aspects…

    The motor neuron diseases (MNDs) are a group of progressive neurological disorders that destroy motor neurons, the cells that control essential voluntary muscle activity such as speaking, walking, breathing, and swallowing. Normally, messages from nerve cells in the brain (called upper motor neurons) are transmitted to nerve cells in the brain stem and spinal cord (called lower motor neurons) and from them to particular muscles. Upper motor neurons direct the lower motor neurons to produce…
