Neurodegeneration is a progressive condition that affects the neurons of the human brain. The neurons are the building blocks of the nervous system and when they get affected, they can cause conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or the Huntington’s disease. Because neurons don’t reproduce or replace themselves when damaged, any damage to them is permanent. The disease is progressively degenerative and causes problems with movement and mental functioning.
