What is Motor Neuron Disease?

Motor neuron disease is on the whole recognized as a group of neurological disorders which usually attacks the cells that are responsible for controlling important muscle activities such as speaking, walking, breathing and swallowing. Under the normal circumstances in an absolutely normal mechanism what usually happens is that the neurons in your brain transfer messages to lower neurons in the spinal cord which further transfer them to the muscles for performing various activities. When the muscles get those signals they perform but in this disorder this performance gets affected due to weak signaling caused due to this disorder. In this Motor Neuron Disease a certain fuss is created between these activities which results in the severe weakening of muscles and low performance of muscles. A person suffering from this disorder looses the ability to have a proper enforced control on voluntary movements and in extremely severe cases it leads to a person not able to perform or control the voluntary movement at all. If not treated in time it can lead to permanent disability.
