Infection and Inflammation of the Central Nervous System
Abstract
This paper shall discuss infections and inflammation of the central nervous system. The pathology of infection and inflammation directly of the central nervous system is reviewed. Multiple sclerosis is discussed in this context. The effects of autoimmune responses and its effects upon the central nervous system and the potentially adverse effects upon the regulation of metabolic functions is also investigated.
Infection and Inflammation of the Central Nervous System
Infection and related inflammation of the central nervous system manifests itself in both physical and mental disorders. Additionally infections and inflammations throughout the physiology can adversely impact...
