Neurodegeneration is a gradual loss of neuron structure or function, including the death of neurons. Most neurodegenerative disorders – including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, catastrophic family insomnia, and Huntington 's disease – occur as a result of neurodegenerative processes. These diseases are incurable, resulting in progressive degeneration. When work advances, several parallels tend to link these diseases to one another at a subcellular stage. The discovery of these parallels gives hope for medical advancements that might potentially cure other diseases. There are several similarities between various neurodegenerative diseases, including atypical protein assemblies and induced cell death. Neurodegeneration can be observed at several different stages of neuronal activity, ranging from cellular to systemic. Aging is the most important risk factor for neurodegenerative diseases. Both mitochondrial DNA mutations and oxidative stress lead to aging. Some of these diseases are late-onset, which means that there is some aspect that changes as a person ages for each disease.
