Central Nervous System may be defined as the system which is made up of the brain and spinal cord. The CNS is vulnerable to various disorders. CNS can be damaged by the following: Trauma, Infections, Degeneration, Structural defects, Tumours, Blood flow disruption, Autoimmune disorders etc.

Approximately 22 million patients suffer from various forms of dementia, two-thirds of which are related to Alzheimer’s.  The WHO estimates the number of people suffering from multiple sclerosis worldwide at 2.5 million. As for schizophrenia, 1percent of the world’s population may be at risk.

Cognitive neurology is a scientific study of neural mechanism underlying cognition. Cognitive Neurology is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect memory and other ‘cognitive’ faculties (such as language, perception, planning-ability and social comportment). Cognitive neuroscience is at the intersection of psychology and neuroscience, but it also overlaps with physiological psychology, neuropsychology and cognitive psychology. This combines the theories of cognitive psychology & computational modelling with experimental data about the brain.

The spinal cord refers as the main pathway for information connecting/transferring to the brain and peripheral nervous system. The spinal cord is also known as the large group of nerves which runs through the centre of the spinal cord and carries messages between the brain and the entire body. Spinal disorders may be seen in individuals irrespective of their age-Chiari malformation in infants to spinal stenosis in the elderly. The increase in population with spinal diseases has met with a leap in the advancements in diagnostic and treatment techniques.  The commonly used tools in diagnosing spinal disorders are as follows: X rays, MRI, CT and DEA etc.

Transduction may be defined as the method that converts a sensory signal to an electrical signal to be processed in a specialized area in the brain.

The brain has it specific processing regions that are dedicated to processing the information which has previously passed through the thalamus for both motor and sensory signals. Growth Factor and Cytokine receptors plays very important role in the activation of the signal transduction.

Neurogenesis defines the process by which neurons are generated from neural stem cells and progenitor cells. Many different varieties of excitatory & inhibitory neurons are generated from different kinds of neural stem cells. The molecular and genetic factors influencing genesis of neuron notably include the Notch Signalling pathway, and many genes have been linked to Notch Signalling pathway regulation. It has been found to occur in two brain regions: the subventricular zone and the hippocampus.
