What is Motor Neurone Disease?

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a term used to describe a group of related diseases that affect the motor neurones in the brain and spinal cord. Motor neurones are the nerve cells along which the brain transmits instructions to the muscles. Therefore, degeneration of the motor neurones leads to weakness and wasting of muscles.
