International efforts to enhance understanding of how the nervous system works.


The main reason how difficult is seems to find cure for brain and spinal cord injury, mental illness, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and ALS is that medical science do not have a full understanding of how the nervous system works. Therefore, ISCI and the Icelandic authorities have inquired the United Nations (UN) and the Nordic Council of Ministers that these two institutions should initiate the implementation of launching an international effort to better understanding of the nervous system. Knowledge is the basis of healing. On this website you can find the current information. Further information This email address is being protected from spambots.
