About The Journal
The International Journal of Neurology(IJN) is a peer reviewed Journal that publishes novel research work conducted as case reports in the medical field on various types of diseases, covering their respective clinical and diagnosis issues.
The The International Journal of Neurology(IJN)is an Open Access Scientific Journal that offers an interesting publishing platform globally and aims to keep scientists, clinicians and medical practitioners, researchers, and students informed and updated on the ongoing research in the relevant area. Outstanding quality articles are welcome to maintain the highest standard of the journal and to achieve high impact factor.
The The International Journal of Neurology(IJN)is using Editorial Manager System for maintaining the quality in peer review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking system. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of The International Journal of Neurology(IJN) or by outside experts. At least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.
Some of Major Focus area of this Journal are:
Neurosurgery is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of conditions, illnesses and injuries involving the nervous system and its support structures. This includes various conditions involving the brain, the spinal cord, the actual nerves, the skull, the bones of the spine, spinal disks, as well as the blood vessels, ligaments and the protective coverings that offer support to the nervous tissues. This work is usually regarded as some of the most complex within the medical field, in part because of how specialized and intricate these parts of the body are. In addition to actually performing surgeries, neurosurgeons are also frequently called to consult with other specialists when it comes to certain tumors, conditions, or illnesses, and they may also be found conducting complex research studies to advance knowledge in the field.
Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as a blow to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. TBI can result when the head suddenly and violently hits an object or when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue. Symptoms of a TBI can be mild, moderate or severe, depending on the extent of damage to the brain. Mild cases may result in a brief change in mental state or consciousness, while severe cases may result in extended periods of unconsciousness, coma or even death.
Causes include falls, vehicle collisions, and violence. Brain trauma occurs as a consequence of a sudden acceleration or deceleration within the cranium or by a complex combination of both movement and sudden impact. In addition to the damage caused at the moment of injury, a variety of events following the injury may result in further injury. These processes include alterations in cerebral blood flow and the pressure within the skull. Some of the imaging techniques used for diagnosis include computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs).
The spinal cord is the most important structure between the body and the brain. The spinal cord extends from the foramen magnum where it is continuous with the medulla to the level of the first or second lumbar vertebrae. It is a vital link between the brain and the body, and from the body to the brain.
Parkinson's disease is a disorder of the nervous system that affects your movement and mental ability. It develops gradually, shaking in thumb, chin or lip, moments during sleeping,feeling dizzy,low blood pressure. Parkinson's disease can't be cured. In some cases, doctors may suggest medication, Pharmacology treatment and surgery to re certain regions of your brain . anti-Parkinson disease medication treatment is good control of parkinson diesease for 4-5 yrs. Physiothery is also a good treatment to improve your muscle strength.
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that impairs mainly the memory and cognitive function in elderly. Extracellular beta amyloid deposition and intracellular tau hyperphosphorylation are the two pathological events that are thought to cause neuronal dysfunction in AD. Since the detailed mechanisms that underlie the pathogenesis of AD are still not clear, the current treatments are those drugs that can alleviate the symptoms of AD patients. Recent studies have indicated that these symptom-reliving drugs also have the ability of regulating amyloid precursor protein processing and tau phosphorylation. Thus the pharmacological mechanism of these drugs may be too simply-evaluated. This review summarizes the current status of AD therapy and some potential preclinical considerations that target beta amyloid and tau protein are also discussed.
It is a group of neurological disorders that are characterized by recurrent seizures. There are two types of epilepsy: idiopathic and symptomatic, which are sub divided into generalized, partial and petit mal seizures. Epilepsy is caused by genetics or it may be acquired. Management consists of first aid, medications, surgery, other and alternative medications. Medications include acetazolamide, carbamazepine, clonazepam, phenobarbital and phenytoin.
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS)
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a neurosurgical procedure involving the placement of a medical device called a neurostimulator (sometimes referred to as a 'brain pacemaker'), which sends electrical impulses, through implanted electrodes, to specific targets in the brain (brain nuclei) for the treatment of movement disorders, including Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, and dystonia. While its underlying principles and mechanisms are not fully understood, DBS directly changes brain activity in a controlled manner.
Lyme disease is caused by four main species of bacteria. Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia mayonii cause Lyme disease in the United States, while Borrelia afzelii and Borrelia garinii are the leading causes in Europe and Asia. The most common tick-borne illness in these regions, Lyme disease is transmitted by the bite of an infected black-legged tick, commonly known as a deer tick.
