The track category is the heading under which your abstract will be reviewed and later published in the conference printed matters if accepted. During the submission process, you will be asked to select one track category for your abstract.
Clinical trials and case reports are the information gathered from the larger groups of people that contain the results of a drug or treatment, side effects by comparing it to the commonly used treatments. This collected information will allow the drug or treatment to be used safely and also gives researchers knowledge about new technologies, and new aspects.

The central nervous system includes brain and spinal cord. The brain plays a central role in the control of most body functions and uses 20 percent of the total oxygen we breathe in. The brain consists of an estimated 100 billion neurons, with each connected to thousands more. The brain can be divided into four main lobes: temporal, parietal, occipital and frontal. The spinal cord is an elongated cylindrical structure, about 45 cm (18 inches) long that extends from the medulla oblongata to a level between the first and second lumbar vertebrae of the backbone.

Neurodegenerative disease is an umbrella term for a range of conditions which primarily affect the neurons in the human brain. These disorders are marked by the loss of neurons within the brain and/or spinal cord. The clinical features of this diverse group of neurological disorders depend on the particular central nervous system regions involved. The two most common neurodegenerative disorders are Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

Back pain is the common health problems present among a large number of people around the world. Continuously sitting for long hours, lack of exercise and unhealthy working habits are some of the most common causes of back pain. Typically, back pain is treated with simple medications or exercises. When this fails and quality of life is severely affected then the doctors recommend spine surgery to treat severe and prolonged back pain condition. Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is sometimes called less invasive spine surgery. In these procedures, doctors use specialized instruments to access the spine through small incisions.

Both the spinal cord and brain are insulated by numerous membranes that can be vulnerable to force and pressure. The peripheral nerves located deep under the skin can also be vulnerable to damage. Neurological disorders can affect an entire neurological pathway or a single neuron. Even a small disturbance to a neuron’s structural pathway can result in dysfunction. Various types of neurological disorders affect millions of people around the world, including 24 million that suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and 326 million who experience migraines.

Neurosurgical problems seen by paediatric neurosurgeons are often quite different from those commonly seen by adult or general neurosurgeons. . If a child has problems involving the head, spine, or nervous system, a paediatric neurosurgeon has the experience and qualifications to treat that child. Special training in paediatric diseases as they relate to paediatric neurosurgical diseases is important. Paediatric neurosurgical problems often are present for life. Paediatric neurosurgeons have a special and longstanding relationship with their patients. Children with nervous system problems frequently require on-going and close follow-up throughout childhood and adolescence.

Neuro immune deficiency syndrome is an incurable and inevitably fatty disease. NIDS is an intended medical classification for illnesses or disorders (that may currently have psychiatric or developmental labels) that are actually caused by a complex neuro-immune, complex viral, autoimmune-like illness affecting cognitive and body functions in children and adults. Some of these diseases are labelled as; Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), ADD or ADHD, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/CFIDS), as well as other multiple related disorders. Many classic autoimmune diseases may have a treatable NIDS component. The symptoms of NIDS vary and can affect multiple areas of a child's development and overall health and wellbeing.

Epilepsy is a central nervous system (neurological) disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behaviour, sensations, and sometimes loss of awareness. People with epilepsy experience recurrent seizures, because a sudden surge of electrical activity in the brain causes a temporary disturbance in the messaging systems between brain cells. There are several different types of seizures depending upon the individual. Most seizures can be categorized as either focal or generalized.

Biomarkers are measurable and quantifiable biological indicators which are used in diagnosing or predicting disease, monitoring disease progression and also to indicate what treatment options will be most effective in an individual patient's case and estimate the treatment response. They play a role both in new drug R&D and in predicting the outcome of treatment. These are the important tools to understand disease mechanism, developing more effective treatments and improving the quality of patient care.
