Patients are participating in nervous system and neurological disorders research around the world

We currently have a number of clinical trials and research studies seeking patients managing various nervous system and neurological disorders. We can help find trials and research studies near you and may help you to get access to those opportunities.

Nervous System and neurological disorders clinical trials and research studies

What is the nervous system and neurological disorders?

The nervous system helps different parts of the body communicate with one another, using both electrical and chemical signals to send and receive messages. The nervous system is made up of the central nervous system (which includes the brain and the spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system (nerves elsewhere in the body).

In the nervous system, there are several different types of cells that perform different functions, such as neurons (cells that send and receive signals) and oligodendrocytes (cells that produce an important substance called myelin). The nervous system is responsible for intelligence, learning and memory; basic body functions (eg. breathing, digestion); movement; senses (eg. sight, hearing) and the “fight or flight” response.

There are several diseases and disorders that affect the nervous system. They may have a genetic basis (epilepsy, Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, cancer), or be caused by infection or injury (traumatic brain injury, meningitis), or just be a factor of aging (Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease).

Where is nervous system and neurological disorder research now?

There is intense research around neurological disorders around the world, particularly because there is much to be understood about the brain and the causes of neurological disorders. There is research on how these disorders develop and progress with the aim to prevent them, on more accurate diagnostic processes and tools, on how to best manage these disorders to prolong lifespan, and on new technologies (including nanotechnology and brain-computer interface technology) and treatments that may be able to stop or reverse the damage caused.

How can I get involved in nervous system and neurological disorder research?

Participating in nervous system and neurological disorder research and clinical trials may be a method to access emerging therapies or it may help pave the way in developing new diagnostics, interventions and treatments that will benefit others. There are a large number of clinical trials and research studies undertaken each year to understand, prevent, manage, treat and reverse nervous system and neurological disorders.
