A neurological disorder is any disorder of the body nervous system.
Structural, biochemical or electrical abnormalities in the brain, spinal cord or other nerves can result in a range of symptoms. The World Health Organization estimated in 2006 that neurological disorders and their sequelae (direct consequences) affect as many as one billion people worldwide.
Neurological disorders are diseases or dysfunctions of the nervous system. The nervous system is composed of the brain, spinal cord, and a series of fibers that run throughout the entire body. The nervous system is responsible for sending and receiving messages to and from the brain and the rest of the body.
