Neurologic Functions

Among its many functions, the brain is well-known to control bodily activities such as vision, movement, and sensation. These functions are also shared by many nonhuman animals, and the descriptor "elemental" is thus appropriate to categorize these in a broad sense. Cerebral white matter disorders clearly disturb these functions. The clinical significance of deficits in elemental function needs little explanation; patients with MS, for example, may suffer greatly from chronic problems, including blindness and paralysis. The neurology of white matter disease has mainly concentrated on these deficits, which may be disabling even in the absence of superimposed neurobehavioral deficits.
