The various conditions involving the nervous system include the brain, the skull, the spinal cord, the actual nerves, the bones of the spine, spinal disks as well as ligaments, blood vessels and protective coverings that offer support to the nervous system. Neurological conditions may develop from degenerative conditions, abnormal development from birth, physical or traumatic injury, infection, cancer, disorders of function (e.g. epilepsy) or other medical conditions or diseases.
