Neurodegenerative diseases are characterized by deterioration of neurons or their myelin sheath, disrupting transmission of sensory information, movement control, and more. Because these cells are not easily regenerated, buildup of amyloid plaques can lead to disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and non-amyloid-related degeneration can cause amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and multiple sclerosis.
