How Common are Diseases of the Brain and Spine?
Nearly one in every six individuals around the world suffers from some form of neurological disease or disorder.

These disorders include diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system, such as brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves, the automatic nervous system, neuromuscular junction and muscles.
