A review on neuroinflammation's function in neurodegenerative disorders.
A process known as neurodegeneration affects the central nervous system and is characterised by the loss of neuronal structure and function. Neurodegeneration is seen following viral insult and mainly in a variety of so-called "neurodegenerative diseases," which are typically seen in the elderly and adversely affect both mental and physical functioning. These diseases include Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The underlying causes of neurodegeneration are still unknown. Recent research, however, has shown that the inflammatory process is intricately connected to a number of neurodegenerative pathways that are linked to depression, a complication of neurodegenerative disease. Proinflammatory cytokines are so crucial for understanding the pathophysiology of dementia and depression. These findings indicate that more research is needed to completely understand the role of neuroinflammation in neurodegeneration, as pro-inflammatory chemicals, which are neuroinflammation's root causes, are common, especially in the aged, in whom inflammatory mechanisms are associated to the development of functional and mental deficits. In this review, we looked into how the inflammatory response affects neurodegenerative illnessesAuthor(s): Jonathan Godbout
