Many neurological disorders lead in the long term to disability through dysfunction of various parts of the nervous system. This chapter discusses drug therapies and transplantation related to neurological disorders using an anatomical approach which broadly defines several areas, including the association areas of the cerebral cortex, their subcortical connections, and limbic system structures causing cognitive deficits as well as epilepsy; the basal ganglia and their associated nuclei causing disorders of movement; and the cerebellum and its connections causing incoordination or ataxia. Although these symptom groupings are dealt with separately, in reality they are often combined, which is perhaps best illustrated by patients with the chronic CNS inflammatory disorder, multiple sclerosis (MS).
