This chapter concentrates on the anatomical substrate underlying elements of the motor, sensory, and autonomie systems, both within the central and peripheral nervous systems, and explains how this relates to clinical assessment. It then discusses how this clinical assessment is applied as a research tool, in conjunction with supplementary investigations, to quantify the degree and rate of progression of neurological deficits for a number of specific conditions—multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's disease (PD), and Huntington's disease (HD)—and how this can be used to evaluate new therapies.

Keywords:   anatomical substrate, autonomie systems, motor system, peripheral nervous systems, central nervous systems, Parkinson's disease
