A Disruption Of Motor Neurons

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a neurological condition that impacts a person’s motor neurons. The nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control various voluntary muscle movements are disrupted. Movements such as moving, talking, and chewing are affected. There is no cure for this disease but early diagnosis and treatment can help to control the symptoms.
