 Wikinfo | Neurological disorder
Neurological disorders are a group of disorders that involve the central nervous system (brain, brainstem and cerebellum), the peripheral nervous system (including cranial nerves), and the autonomic nervous system (parts of which are located in both central and peripheral nervous system).
Major branches are headache, stupor and coma, dementia, seizure, sleep disorders, trauma, infections, neoplasms, neuroophthalmology, movement disorders, demyelinating diseases, spinal cord disorders, and disorders of peripheral nerves, muscle and neuromuscular junctions.
They are not traditionally listed as neurological diseases because their causes are not definitely determined as biological, although there are good reasons to suspect that bipolar disorder and schizophrenia have neuro-chemical causes.

 'Alien Hand' Syndrome Turns Limbs Monstrous
Writing in the February issue of the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry, the Israeli team describes a case of 'alien hand' associated with a possible case of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), a degenerative brain disorder caused by infectious particles called prions.
The study authors note that one common factor between the diseases associated with the phenomenon is that all these disorders involve several parts of the brain at once, suggesting that simultaneous damage to the parts of the brain that control movement may be responsible.
Based on their findings, the investigators advise that Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease be added to the list of neurological disorders that prompt 'alien hand.' Inzelberg says future studies are planned ``to understand better the mechanisms involved in this rare condition.'' SOURCE: Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry 2000;68:103-104.
