Over the next several decades, Alzheimerís disease, Parkinsonís disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, and other neurodegenerative diseases will have an ever increasing impact on our society emotionally, socially, and financially. While at first glance unraveling the complex mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of these seemingly discrete clinical entities may seem daunting, modern research clearly reveals that these seemingly unique clinical entities are simply variations on a theme.

With this understanding, meaningful functional interventions based upon high caliber scientific research are justified.
