Description: Currently, diagnosis of brain diseases is carried out observing clinical symptoms, which occur when most of the neurodegeneration has already occurred. For example, Parkinson ‘s Disease symptoms (tremor) manifest when over 70% of dopaminergic neurons are dead (Parkinson Disease Foundation 2013). Before neuronal degeneration, there is a sustained inflammatory brain activity, which results in exacerbated neuroinflammation leading to cell death. The onset of this inflammatory reaction can occur even 10-15 years before the actual symptoms manifest (Lull et al Neurotherapeutics 2010).
