Environmental Pollutants and the Risk of Neurological Disorders

Acronym : EPRND

Neurological disorders have attracted attention in last decades owing to their large burden on worldwide health. Currently, about 100 millions of people worldwide are affected by neurological disorders and represents 20% of the global burden of disease. Most common devastating neurological disorders are Alzheimer’s disease, and other dementias, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, stroke, brain tumors, brain trauma, etc. These disorders represent prominent causes of morbidity and mortality but the etiology of these disorders is still ambiguous. However, recently the impact of the environment as a prominent risk factor has gained importance to the onset of these disorders. Emerging evidence indicates that environmental exposures such as air pollution can lead to chronic oxidative stress that plays a crucial role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease—the most common form of dementia. Furthermore, neurotoxic metals, as well as exposure to some pesticides, may augment protein misfolding and aggregation that serves as a precursor for copious degenerative brain ailments. Therefore analyzing the tie of environmental factors and neurological disarrays is likely to help in the development of therapeutic strategies that can restore typical brain function.

In this special issue, we welcome scientists to contribute their articles exploring the environmental factors that potentially damage the nervous system. This collection of articles will focus on the role of environmental pollutants as risk factors for neurological disorders and their mechanisms of action as well as preventing the effects of pollutants on brain health.
