Paralysis can result from either diseases involving changes in the makeup of nervous or muscular tissue or those that are the result of metabolic disturbances that interfere with the function of nerves or muscles.

Depending upon the cause, paralysis may affect a specific muscle group or region of the body, or a larger area may be involved. American Libraries Canadian Libraries Universal Library Community Texts Project Gutenberg Biodiversity Heritage Library Children's Library.

They amplify information on foetal neurology, malformations of the CNS, hydrocephalus and non-traumatic pericerebral collections, heredodegenerative disorders, infectious diseases, space-occupying lesions, seizure disorders, other paroxysmal disorders, disorders of the visual system, peripheral neuropathies, primary muscle diseases and specific learning : Sheila J.

Wallace. Emerging Infectious Diseases of the CNS. Viral encephalitis is emerging or re-emerging as an important cause of human disease due to increased geographic range (e.g., West Nile virus, Japanese encephalitis virus) or new spread of viruses from animal reservoirs into human populations (e.g., Nipah and Hendra viruses).According to the World Health Organization, Japanese encephalitis Cited by: Primary periodic paralysis (PPP) is a group of rare diseases that temporarily make muscles stiff, weak, or unable to move.

These episodes can last from a few minutes to a few days, depending on Author: Stephanie Watson. Most of these cases have been in children around 5 years old.

A spike in AFM cases in was similar to those in and However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is investigating all AFM cases.

A common thread linking the cases has not been found; although, most occurred in late summer and early fall. Sleep paralysis is a condition in which someone, most often lying in a supine position, about to drop off to sleep, or just upon waking from sleep realizes that he is unable to move.

In this condition patient have some halucinations concerning alien abductions or something like pure evil presence.

Conversion disorder (CD), or functional neurologic symptom disorder, is a diagnostic category used in some psychiatric classification is sometimes applied to patients who present with neurological symptoms, such as numbness, blindness, paralysis, or fits, which are not consistent with a well-established organic cause, which cause significant distress, and can be traced back to a Specialty: Psychiatry.

Diseases of the Nervous System C) Paralysis is the result of powerful neurotoxins which work by blocking the release of neurotransmitters 1) Initial symptoms include blurred/double vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, dry mouth, and muscle weakness 2) Can lead to paralysis of the arms, legs, and respiratory system leading to death if untreated.

An infection of the CSF surrounding the brain & spinal cord It is caused by bacteria and viruses. Viral meningitiss*: generally less severe & resolves without specific treatment. Bacterial meningitiss*: quite severe & may result in brain damage, hearing loss, or learning disability.

because there is no antibody in the brain bacterias multiply without being checked. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating disease in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged.

This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to transmit signals, resulting in a range of signs and symptoms, including physical, mental, and sometimes psychiatric problems. Specific symptoms can include double vision, blindness in one Specialty: Neurology.

Nervous system disorder affecting young children, usually a result of some type of brain damage at, before, or after birth. Not a progressive condition-characterized by motor disorders, possibly some mental retardation, child walks on toes with knees bent and point inward.

This book provides an introduction for course adoption and an introductory tutorial for students, scholars, researchers and medical professionals interested in learning the state of the art concerning our understanding and treatment of diseases of the nervous system.

PROSE Award winner of the Best Textbook Award in Biological & Life Sciences/5(9). The diseases and more serious pathological conditions of the nervous system, again, have major implications for the way the rest of your body functions. From the way your muscles move to the coordination of involuntary reflexes, your nervous system can be subject to a wide range of serious pathological issues.

Neurological disorders can be categorized according to the primary location affected, the primary type of dysfunction involved, or the primary type of cause. The broadest division is between central nervous system disorders and peripheral nervous system disorders.

Neurological disorders can affect an entire neurological pathway or a single : Disabled World. This is a list of major and frequently observed neurological disorders (e.g., Alzheimer's disease), symptoms (e.g., back pain), signs (e.g., aphasia) and syndromes (e.g., Aicardi syndrome).There is disagreement over the definitions and criteria used to delineate various disorders and whether some of these conditions should be classified as mental disorders or in other ways.

-Nervous system develops in 1st month of embryonic development -- infection in early pregnancy is harmful (rubella, smoking, drugs)-Premature babies cannot control body heat because hypothalamus is one of the last areas of the CNS to mature-Myelination continues through childhood.

A sudden attack of weakness or paralysis that occurs when blood flow to an area of the brain is interrupted by either a clot or a Cincinnati aneurysm (artery rupture) A disorder in which a child with normal early development loses manual.

Neurobiology of Brain Disorders is the first book directed primarily at basic scientists to offer a comprehensive overview of neurological and neuropsychiatric disease. This book links basic, translational, and clinical research, covering the genetic, developmental, molecular, and cellular mechanisms underlying all major categories of brain.

Cerebral palsy, a group of neurological disorders characterized by paralysis resulting from abnormal development of or damage to the brain either before birth or during the first years of life. There are four types of cerebral palsy: spastic, athetoid, ataxic, and mixed. In the spastic type, there is a severe paralysis of voluntary movements, with spastic contractions of the extremities.

Polio, short for poliomyelitis, is an infectious disease caused by the poliovirus. In about percent of cases, there is muscle weakness resulting in an inability to move.

This can occur over a few hours to a few days. The weakness most often involves the legs, but may less commonly involve the muscles of the head, neck and diaphragm. Many people fully ciation: /ˌpoʊlioʊˌmaɪəˈlaɪtɪs/.

The evidence available for Sub-Saharan Africa suggests that the burden of nervous system disorders may be heavier in African communities than in comparable communities in other parts of the developing world (Osuntokun,a; Spillane, ). Compare the major characteristics of specific bacterial diseases affecting the nervous system Bacterial infections that affect the nervous system are serious and can be life-threatening.

Fortunately, there are only a few bacterial species commonly associated with neurological infections. A demyelinating disease is any disease of the nervous system in which the myelin sheath of neurons is damaged.

This damage impairs the conduction of signals in the affected nerves. In turn, the reduction in conduction ability causes deficiency in sensation, movement, cognition, or other functions depending on which nerves are lty: Neurology. Suzanne Humphries, an internist and board-certified nephrologist, wrote about polio fear-mongering in her book, Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History, describing how we were “indoctrinated to believe polio was a highly prevalent and contagious disease” from the early s on, “despite the actual numbers.Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) was first described by the noted French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot inwho connected the progressive paralytic syndrome with lesions in both white and gray matter of the central nervous system (CNS).

1 Over years later, ALS is the most common adult-onset motor neuron disorder, affecting.Paralysis is most often caused by damage to the nervous system or brain, especially the spinal cord while the muscles themselves stay intact.

Beside the motoric symptoms of paralysis, there are also often some sensorial symptoms such as a loss of feeling in the affected area. [1] Hysteria or severe emotional trauma may also cause paralysis.
