In Detail
MND is a group of diseases in which the neurones (nerve cells) controlling the muscles fail to work normally. With no nerves to activate them, the muscles gradually weaken and waste. The senses, memory and intellect usually remain intact.

Other names for MND include; Lou Gehrig's Disease (USA), ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), Maladie de Charcot (1869), Creeping Paralysis.
