Motor neurone disease (MND) is a rapidly progressing neurological disorder that attacks the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord controlling the way we walk, talk, eat, speak, and breathe. The loss of these nerve cells (motor neurons) leads to progressive muscle weakness and wasting.

Currently, over 2000 people are living with MND in Australia. This is a destructive neurological disorder which currently has no cure. The Queensland Brain Institute are using a multidisciplinary approach to improve the understanding and treatment of motor neurone disease.
