    Neurology is the study of the nervous system that deals with anatomy, functioning, and disorders of the nervous system. It includes about the diagnostic techniques, tools, and cure for diseases involving the central and peripheral nervous system. Understanding and functioning of the nervous system at the cellular or tissue level, and identifying specific genes and proteins involve in neurological diseases. Neurology research is aimed at developing and refining cures for neurological disorders.

    Neuroscience (or neurobiology): it is a multidisciplinary branch of biology and it is a combination of anatomy, physiology, molecular biology, cytology, developmental biology, mathematical modeling and psychology, neural coding, psychoendoneuroimmunology (PENI) to understand the properties of neurons and neural circuits.

    Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) also referred to as psychoneuroendocrinoimmunology (PNEI), it is an interdisciplinary approach, including psychology, immunology, neuroscience, genetics physiology, pharmacology, psychiatry, behavioral medicine, molecular biology infectious diseases, rheumatology and endocrinology. All researches in PENI can be published with us at Neurophysiology and Rehabilitation journal. It is run by Edelweiss Publications Inc, USA.

    Core Fields Covered

    A neurological disorder is any disorder in the nervous system includes structural and electrical abnormalities in the brain and spinal cord. Some of the examples and symptoms include paralysis, loss of sensation muscle weakness, poor coordination, seizures, pain, confusion, and altered levels of consciousness. They may be determined by neurological examination and studies and treated within the specialties of neurology and clinical neuropsychology.

    Neurological disorders are diseases of the brain, spine and the nerves that connect them. There are more than thousand diseases related to nervous system, such as brain tumors, epilepsy, and stroke front temporal dementia…...

    Neurosurgery or neurological surgery, is the medical skill concerned with the, diagnosis, prevention, surgical treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders which affect any part of the nervous system including the spinal cord, brain, and extra-cranial cerebrovascular systemperipheral nerves.

    Alzheimers disease-it is the more common type of theneurological disorder in which death of the brain cells, cognitive decline, and loss of memory. Where it involves the formation of plaques and tangles in the brain, Amyloid-beta is a key component of the brain plaques found during extent of Alzheimers disease. The Edelweiss publications welcome original manuscripts related to all neurological disorders and related aspects.

    Symptoms includes reduced ability to remember information, Impairments to reasoning, Changes in behavior Personality the progression of Alzheimer in three main stages, preclinical, before symptoms appear, dementia, mild cognitive impairment. In some cases, genetic testing may be done. The people with APOE-e4 gene will have higher chances of getting this disease at the age of 55 years. By performing this test can indicate person having or developing the disease. The emerging biological tests make it possible to assess for biomarkers in people with the risk of Alzheimers. There is no known cure for Alzheimer. As the dead brain cell cannot be regenerated.

    Parkinsons disease - Parkinsonism is a neurological syndrome characterized by rigidity, tremor, hyperkinesia, postural instability. A person with Parkinsons disease has untypically low dopamine levels dopaminergic neurons (types of nerve cells) in the substantianigra part of the brain will died (Dopamine-generating cells). A neurological syndrome usually emanate from deficiency of the neurotransmitter dopamine as the result of vascular degenerative and inflammatory changes in the basal ganglia. Although this disease is not leads to direct cause of death, it is a slow progressive disease, and symptoms get worse over time and it is chronic disease - a long-term disease and is incurable. No specific test exists to diagnose Parkinsons disease. Parkinsons disease based on medical history, signs and symptoms. A Single-Photon Emission by Computerized Tomography (SPECT) scan called a Dopamine Transporter (DAT) scan used to determine the Parkinsons disease.

    Huntington chorea: It is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder and it is characterized by behavioral changes, mood disorders, cognitive impairments this disorder leads to death. It is a mutation of the HTT gene is called huntingin. This gene involve in the chemical signaling, transporting materials protecting the cell from apoptosis. It is a trinucleotide repeat mutation disorder, under normal conditions HTT gene has a CAG repeats. Under abnormal conditions CAG repeats increases significantly. These extra repeats results in gene abnormality in area of Exon 1 which resulted in elongated protein breaks in to smaller, toxic fragments binds and accumulate in neurons results in the abnormal functioning.

    The Journal of Neurophysiology and Rehabilitation running by Edelweiss publications accepts all the research work, commentaries, review articles, case reports, many more articles related to Huntington chorea.

    Brain and Spinal Tumors - are abnormal growths of tissue found inside the skull or the bony spinal column, which are the part of the central nervous system. Benign tumors are noncancerous that cant be completely removed may require treatment such as chemotherapy or radiation, and malignant tumors are cancerous grow quickly and spread to surrounding tissue and may return after treatment. Tumors that originate in the brain or spinal cord are called primary tumors. One of the noninvasive treatments with the noninvasive treatment with the Gamma Knife and Cyber Knife can treat tumors. Editorial board ensures a rapid peer review process helping Edelweiss Publications to run it successfully.

    Central Cord Syndrome - is a form of incomplete spinal cord injury characterized by impairment in the arms and hands and to a lesser extent in the legs. The brains ability to send and receive signals to and from parts of the body below the site of injury is reduced but not entirely blocked. Symptoms may include paralysis or loss of fine control of movements in the arms and hands. Research related to central cord syndrome is invited by Neurophysiology and Rehabilitation journal.

    Cerebellar Degeneration - is a disease progressive in neurons in the cerebellum that cause cerebellar degeneration and also interfere with the medulla oblongata, cerebral cortex, and the brain stem. Manuscripts related to cerebellar degeneration shall be published in Neurophysiology and Rehabilitation journal. You can submit us using the email id

    Encephalopathy-It is neuropsychiatric abnormalities in liver, dysfunction and other known brain disease. It is characterized by, intellectual impairment personality changes, and a depressed level of consciousness. More research done on encephalopathy is welcome, we shall publish research/review/case reports in Neurophysiology and Rehabilitation journal.

    Therapies: Apart from the issue of a cure, patients with neurological disorders will be placed in rehabilitation. To restore the lost function, therapies for neurological disorders consist of Physiotherapy to manage the symptoms and restore some functions. Medication is taken to restore the function or prevent magnify of the patients condition. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on reorientation of a patients behavior related to their disability, it has shown considerable effect in the treatment of ADHD and anxiety.
