Brain disorders engulf the major psychological and physiological anomalies caused due to various brain injuries or passed down genetically. Brain Disorders have been deemed as one of the major health issue concerning our society. Brain disorders mostly involve regions like memory, sensation, and visual reception of our brain that are susceptible to injury or any type of illness.

Neurodegenerative disorder is the progressive loss of structure or function of the neurons, including the death of the neurons. Examples of neurodegenerative diseases include Multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's, Motor neurone diseases, and Huntington's disease. Such diseases are mostly incurable, resulting in progressive degeneration or death of the neuron cells. Neurodegeneration can found in the many different levels of neuronal circuitry ranging from the molecular to systemic.

Dementia is the name given to a group of symptoms affecting the daily functioning of an individual through long and gradual impairment in the ability to think and remember. Dementia involves a greater decline in an individual’s brain functioning than what is expected due to aging. It may include problems like personality changes and emotional problems, loss of motivation without affecting the general consciousness of the person.

The Central Nervous System is the main body governing the integration and response of sensory stimulus. It consists of the brain and the spinal cord, which on exposure to trauma, infections, degeneration, structural defects, blood flow disruption, or autoimmune disorders can compromise normal functioning of our body. Side effects of such disorder include loss of feeling or tingling, loss of sight or double vision, impaired mental ability, lack of coordination, muscle rigidity.

Stroke is defined as the condition where there is poor blood flow to the brain, resulting in cell death. There are two types of stroke 1) ischemic stroke which is defined as the lack of blood flow to the brain, 2) haemorrhagic stroke which occurs due to bleeding. Symptoms of a brain stroke involve inability to move or paralysis of one side of the body, dizziness, or loss of vision. If the symptoms last for less than one or two hours then it is known as a transient ischemic attack or mini-stroke. A haemorrhagic stroke is mostly associated with a severe headache. The symptoms of a stroke can be permanent.

Psychiatric disorder is described as a diagnosed mental illness that significantly affects the thinking, mood and behaviour of an individual, substantially increasing the risk of disability, pain, death, or loss of freedom. Depression, Anxiety disorders, Personality disorders, Schizophrenia fall under this category.

Disorders affecting the central nervous system or the peripheral nervous system that can impair that impair the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerve or neuromuscular function are termed as Neurological disorders. Symptoms caused due to structural, biochemical or electrical abnormalities in the central or peripheral nervous system include paralysis, muscle weakness, loss of sensation, confusion and pain.

Brain Injury is a common term which is used to describe any trauma to the head or brain but most specifically to the brain itself. There are several types of head injuries may occur such as skull fractures, intracranial haemorrhage like subdural or epidural hematoma. Treatment of a head or brain injury depends mainly on the cause and the severity of the injury.

Peripheral neuropathy is neural impairment of nerves that carry messages to and from the brain and spinal cord from and to the rest of the body. Peripheral neuropathy may be chronic or acute. Acute neuropathies demand for urgent diagnosis. Based on the type of nerve involved or the underlying cause, peripheral neuropathies can be classified accordingly.
