The brain is the core component of the nervous system, working together with your nerves, neurons, and spinal column to control the systems in your body. When the brain becomes damaged, it can impact your memory, sensation, and aspects of your character. Illness, genetics, and traumatic injury can all contribute to brain disorders.
Neurodegenerative conditions, in particular, cause the brain and nerve to deteriorate. Some may confuse and alter your personality. They can also affect the tissue and neurons in the brain. Certain neurodegenerative diseases are more common with age, including Alzheimer’s disease, while others, such as Tay-Sachs disease, are genetic and appear earlier in life.
Some symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases include:
- Memory loss
- Mood changes
Since neurodegenerative diseases progress over time, symptoms tend to worsen, and new ones may also emerge.
While there is no cure for neurodegenerative conditions, treatment can still help to control symptoms and promote a positive quality of life. While there are medications available, people with certain neurodegenerative conditions may also consider therapies such as stem cell therapy. This type of regenerative medicine can replace damaged cells with new ones to promote energy and control symptoms. Although it isn’t a cure nor a guarantee, it has the potential to help slow condition disease progression and support the quality of life.
