The term motor neuron disease was introduced by Brain (1962) in recognition of the relationship between progressive muscular atrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and progressive bulbar palsy
, as shown by the differing patterns of involvement of upper and lower motor neurons and muscle wasting in these syndromes (Swash, 2000; Swash & Desai, 2000).
Motor neuron diseases include: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease), post-polio syndrome (PPS), primary lateral sclerosis (PLS), progressive muscular atrophy (PMA), pseudobulbar palsy (spastic), progressive bulbar palsy
(spastic and flaccid), and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA).
