    Many of the neurological features of triple A syndrome are caused by dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system. This part of the nervous system controls involuntary body processes such as digestion, blood pressure, and body temperature. People with triple A syndrome often experience abnormal sweating, difficulty regulating blood pressure. Catalepsy is a nervous disorder characterized by immobility and muscular rigidity, along with a decreased sensitivity to pain. Catalepsy is considered a symptom of serious diseases of the nervous system (e.g., Parkinson's disease, Epilepsy, etc.) rather than a disease by itself. Cataleptic fits can range in duration from several minutes to lty: Psychiatry, Neurology, Neurosurgery.

Our nervous system contains our brain and spinal cord (the main controllers of our body). This is composed of two main parts: Central nervous system and the Peripheral nervous system. Our central nervous system contains the brain and spinal.

World of Unstable Mutations The book "Triplet Repeat Diseases of the Nervous System" overviews the lat­ est data on several disorders associated with unstable mutations.

This field of re­ search is progressing extremely fast. The number of polymorphic mutations and diseases caused by these mutations is increasing almost every month.

Triple repeat diseases of the nervous system. [Lubov T Timchenko;] -- Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX. Text provides a comprehensive overview of new data on several disorders associated with unstable mutations. Discusses molecular pathological processes that. Trinucleotide repeat disorders comprise a variable group of inherited neurodegenerative diseases, with a large range in prevalence figures.

There is a broad range in clinical presentations, but many of these diseases lead to some form of ataxia or other movement disorders, which are frequently combined with cognitive or psychiatric disturbances. Diseases of the Nervous System summarizes the current state of basic and clinical knowledge for the most common neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions.

In a systematic progression, each chapter covers either a single disease or a group of related disorders ranging from static insults to primary and secondary progressive neurodegenerative Cited by: 1. Trinucleotide repeat disorders are a set of genetic disorders caused by trinucleotide Triple repeat diseases of the nervous system book expansion, a kind of mutation in which repeats of three nucleotides (trinucleotide repeats) increase in copy numbers until they cross a threshold above which they become unstable.

Depending on where it is located, the unstable trinucleotide repeat may cause defects in a protein encoded by a gene Other names: Trinucleotide repeat expansion disorders, Triplet repeat expansion disorders or Codon reiteration disorders.

Nervous system disease, any of the diseases or disorders that affect the functioning of the human nervous hing that humans sense, consider, and effect and all the unlearned reflexes of the body depend on the functioning of the nervous system.

The skeleton and muscles support and transport the body, and the digestive system, heart, and lungs provide nutrients; but the nervous. The Nervous system comprises of the brain, the spinal cord, the nerves emanating from them and their innervations of muscle fibres.

The human race is superior and special to the other living beings due to the unique anatomy and physiology of human nervous system.

Trinucleotide Repeat Expansion. Trinucleotide repeat expansions can be observed also in noncoding regions of the causative gene leading to altered mRNA levels, as it happens in the first intron of the frataxin gene causative of Friedreich's ataxia, a disease characterized by neurodegeneration involving the spinocerebellar pathways as well as cardiomyopathy (23).

The study of the brain continues to expand at a rapid pace providing fascinating insights into the basic mechanisms underlying nervous system illnesses.

New tools, ranging from genome sequencing to non-invasive imaging, and research fueled by public and private investment in biomedical research has been transformative in our understanding of nervous system diseases and has led to an. Nervous system diseases, also known as nervous system or neurological disorders, refers to a small class of medical conditions affecting the nervous category encompasses over different conditions, including genetic disorders, infections, cancer, seizure disorders (such as epilepsy), conditions with a cardiovascular origin (such as stroke), congenital and developmental disorders Specialty: Neurology.

About the Book. This Central Nervous System Diseases and Inflammation is edited by Thomas E. Lane, Monica Carson, Conni Bergmann and Tony Wyss-Coray. This First Edition textbook of Central Nervous System Diseases and Inflammation serves as a succinct and well-organized reference volume focused on inflammatory CNS disease to a wide audience.

Damage to the nervous system can result in various diseases, which may be vascular, infectious, structural, functional, or degenerative in nature.

Symptoms of nervous system disease varies from one disease to the next; patients experiencing any concerning symptoms should consult with their physician to rule out nervous system disease. The nervous system can get infected with many diseases, especially the brain.

The brain can be infected or affected with: Amnesia,demensia, aneurisms, and nerves can also be affected by these and that is why the immune system is so vital to the nervous system.

Slow-developing diseases. Other diseases of the nervous system are believed due to viruses that have not yet been isolated. An example is kuru, a slow-developing disease observed in South Pacific peoples. Kuru is called a “slow virus disease” because the symptoms, which include nervous tremors, take over a.

A disease in which there are foci of demyelination throughout the white matter of the central nervous system, sometimes extending into the gray matter. Symptoms of these lesions include weakness, incoordination, paresthesias, speech disturbances, and visual complaints.

Diseases of the Nervous System summarizes the current state of basic and clinical knowledge for the most common neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions. In a systematic progression, each chapter covers either a single disease or a group of related disorders ranging from static insults to primary and secondary progressive neurodegenerative.
