What is a neurological condition?
Neurological conditions are health disorders involving the brain and nervous system which have a number of causes including problems at birth, changes in the blood and oxygen supply to the brain, injury, infection or biochemical changes. Some effects can be seen, for example if there is paralysis or weakness of any part of the body, or they may be hidden from view.

They include multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, dementia, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, Huntingdon’s disease and acquired brain injury. But, whilst the conditions mentioned are relatively well recognised there are in fact over 600 known neurological conditions and disorders that can result in varying degrees of mental and physical disability or ill health. You can find out more about a specific condition here.
