Is an example of a degenerative disease of the nervous system?
Degenerative diseases are those that cause a deterioration over time in some part of the body, such as tissues or organs. Some examples of those are Alzheimer's disease, Parki…nson's disease, Cancers, and Multiple Sclerosis.

Answer is C: older pets
There are many more than five. Here is a list of the most common: Peripheral Neuropathy Parkinson's Disease Dementia Encephalitis Multiple Sclerosis Tumors Brain… Cancer Hydrocephalus Cerebral Palsy Lou Gehrig's Disease Stroke Alzheimer's Disease and many more...
Example: when you step on a nail, your body perceives a stimulus (change in external or internal environment) receptor is the specific thing identifying stimulus, in this case…, the skin, then a nervous impulse is generated and is transmitted through a chain of neurons towards central nervous system, sent to the brain where the impulse is interpreted (integration) by the brain, brain will send off new impulse via motor neurons through spinal cord through nerve to muscle to carry out response.

Three Diseases of the nerve system would be Alzheimer Disease, Broca Aphasia and Cerebello-Olivary Degeneration of Holmes. Hope it helpsss.
Alzheimer's Disease is a degenerative brain disease. It ultimately results in loss of brain function. Victims may have a short attention span, memory problems, and a chang…e in personality. It can lead to death if at one of the last stages. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's Disease). ALS controls voluntary muscle movement autism. Bell's palsy brain abscess brain tumor Broca's Aphasia Cerebello-Olivary Degeneration of Holmes Cerebral Palsy: Loss of muscle control and coordination. A motor disorder. Could be caused by injuries when victim was a baby while his/her brain was developing. Choroid Plexus Papilloma acute confusion (one of the most common metal disorders in the elderly; a disturbance of the brain caused by physical illness elsewhere in the body) diabetic neuropathy epilepsy (neurons occasionally malfunction and begin to fire together over and over, disrupting ordinary cerebral processing and causing unconsciousness or convulsions; can usually be controlled with medication) fibromyalgia Guillain-Barre Syndrome Huntington's Disease: An inherited disorder. Loss of neurons that release acetylcholine and GABA. One symptom is chorea, which is involuntary rapid jerky movements. Mental deterioration also occurs. Death usually occurs 10-20 years after first symptoms. KlÃ¼ver-Bucy Syndrome Locked-In Syndrome Meningitis, Multiple sclerosis is so-named for the multiple sclerotic lesions on the axons of neurons. In the central nervous system, multiple sclerosis attacks the myelin sheath of the axons, affecting the ability to conduct action potentials. Various effects of multiple sclerosis include muscle weakness and spasms, ataxia, dysarthria, chronic pain, etc. This chronic disease can affect young and middle-aged adults.The course of this illness usually involves recurrent relapses followed by remissions, but some patients experience a chronic progressive course. The underlying cause of the nerve damage remains unknown. Multiple Scerosis affects different parts of the brain and spinal cord, resulting in typically scattered symptoms. These can include: Unsteady gait and shaky movement of the limbs (ataxia); Rapid involuntary movements of the eyes (nystagmus); Defects in speech pronunciation (dysarthria); Spastic weakness and retrobulbar neuritis (= inflammation of the optic nerve). Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) A condition characterized by extreme disabling fatigue that has lasted for at least six months, is made worse by physical or mental exertion, does not resolve with bed rest, and cannot be attributed to other disorders. Unknown.Often occurs as a sequel to such viral infections as glandular fever. Extreme disabling fatigue that has lasted for at least six months, is made worse by physical or mental exertion, does not resolve with bed rest, and cannot be attributed to other disorders. The fatigue is accompanied by at least some of the following: Muscle pain or weakness; Poor co-ordination; Joint pain; Sore throat; Slight fever; Painful lymph nodes in the neck and armpits; Depression; Inability to concentrate; General malaise. Neuralgia Maybe due to previous attack of shingles (Postherpetic Neuralgia). A severe burning or stabbing pain often following the course of a nerve. Neuritis A disease of the peripheral nerves showing the pathological changes of inflammation. (This term may also be less precisely used to refer to anydisease of the peripheral nerves, usually causing weakness and numbness.) Inflammation of the nerves, which may be painful. Parinaud Syndrome Parkinson's Disease Degenerative disease process (associated with aging) that affects the basal ganglia of the brain. Associated with a deficiency of the neurotransmitter dopamine.Also associated with aging. Tremor, rigidity and poverty of spontaneous movements.The commonest symptom is tremor, which often affects one hand, spreading first to the leg on the same side then to the other limbs. It is most profound in resting limbs, interfering with such actions as holding a cup. The patient has an expressionless face, an unmodulated voice, an increasing tendency to stoop, and a shuffling walk. Parkinson's degenerates the nervous system slowly. Parkinson's Disease: Results from damage to the basal ganglia. Neurons that release dopamine degenerate in Parkinson's Disease. An imbalance of neurotransmitters occurs. Symptoms include tremors, rigidity of facial muscles, slow movements, and short steps while walking. Pituitary Adenoma Sciatica senile dementia (disorder which results from the slow process of natural nerve cell loss; may become noticeable between the ages of 70 and 80; although the dementia begins with recent memory, it may gradually) continue until the person forgets his relatives and even his own name Shingles: Acute infection of the peripheral nervous system. It is caused by herpes zoster (the chickenpox virus). When a person gets chickenpox and recovers, the virus doesn't die off. Instead, it "hides" in the dorsal root ganglion. When the virus reactivates, and the victim has a weakened immune system, it leaves the ganglion and travels down sensory neurons to the skin. It then causes a line of blisters and pain. spinal cord injury spongiform encephalopathy syphilis (late stage) tetanus (also known as lockjaw because severe spasms of the jaw muscles make it hard to open the mouth) Tourettes' syndrome is characterized by recurrent and uncontrollable twitches and/or movements Wallenberg Syndrome Weber Syndrome Wernicke Aphasia Wernicke/Korsakoff Syndrome Wilson Disease a stroke brain cancer and some other things... there are 16 diseases that can sffect the nervous system and they are:no scratch that there are 17 diseases that affect the ner vous system and the most commonly known among the 17 is tourettes syndrome.

Disease that with the passage of time will deteriorate your body.
Answer Wilson disease is also called hepatolenticular degeneration, referring to its effects on the liver ("hepato-") and lenticular nucleus (part of the basal g…anglia of the brain). The disease is due to an inability to transport copper, and so deposits accumulate in several areas, including the lenticular nucleus, causing damage. The lenticular nucleus, which comprises the globus pallidus and putamen, is part of the brain's basal ganglia, and damage to it can give signs and symptoms of Parkinson disease. Other signs of parkinsonism may also be apparent in patients with Wilson disease; these include dementia and mood disorders.
Some examples of the Nervous System is the brain and all the nerves in your body. The nerves let you know what your touching. For example, if you touch something hot your nerv…es tell you to pull your hand away right away. Another example of the Nervous System is that it controls your emotions.
nervous system is the coordinating centre of the body.so if any person is suffering through the degenerative disease of nervous system , it is difficult to treat as whole body… is affected by it.
What disease is a degenerative central nervous system disorder with progressive loss of control over movement?
Parkinson's disease is a degenerative central nervous system disorder with progressive loss of control over movement.
Parkinson's disease is a disease in which, you have a disorder in your brain characterized by shaking, and difficulty. You get this by having deteriorated nerve cells, which m…eans, you nerve cells are rugged or tired down. It affects the nervous system because, the brain is apart of the nervous system and this disease causing-shaking and is a disorder in the brain.
Diseases that affect the nerves of the central nervous system include meningitis, Parkinson's disease, rabies, polio, and sub-acute sclerosing pan-encephalitis. Such disea…ses affect movement and can lead to mental incapacitation.
