Neurodegenerative Disorders: Today and Tomorrow

Started Oct. 12, 2021

Abstract or project description

The project will consist of literature review research paper on neurodegenerative disorders. Specifically, it will focus on Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Huntington's diseases. The project will include background information, etiologies, and the behavioral aspect of symptoms for each disease. In addition, it will analyze current treatments for each disease as well as look into future possible treatments and directions of research. There will also be a brief comparison of similarities and differences between each of the three neurodegenerative diseases. The purpose of the paper is to serve as a basic source of information and help in further research on these disorders. For this purpose, around 17 research articles were picked for the review paper. In the conclusion, suggestions for future research were included, from what areas can be targeted in the quest for finding a cure for these disorders. The table of similarities and differences serves as a summary of the paper while also suggests how a comparative and holistic approach can be taken for these disorders. A major focus has been given on the behavioral aspects of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's disease, as they highlight how each of these disorders take away the quality of lives of patients who suffer from these disorders. They also show how the behavioral symptoms are more or less similar in these three disorders, therefore comparative studies can be really helpful for further research. The paper doesn't get too technical, so that even students can benefit from this review while doing projects related to neurodegenerative disorders.
