Abstract

This ninth conference-debate arises as a result of the collaboration between the Fundación Ramón Areces and the SpringerNature group devoted to the study of neurodegenerative diseases, particularly amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's. 

The three diseases we are dealing with today have common features such as a dysfunction of the normal properties of neurons and a specific pathological symptomatology that helps us to establish a diagnosis. The lack of knowledge about their origin prevents us from indentifying patients before the disease develops and, currently, there is no cure for any of them. Therefore, in this situation it is important to establish a therapy that can, at least, slow down their progression and, therefore, it is essential to know the mechanisms involved.
