Annotation
IM as a pathol process; coord with specific neurol dis /‌pathol (IM) or specific nerve /‌pathol (IM or NIM) if pertinent
Scope Note
Loss of functional activity and trophic degeneration of nerve axons and their terminal arborizations following the destruction of their cells of origin or interruption of their continuity with these cells. The pathology is characteristic of neurodegenerative diseases. Often the process of nerve degeneration is studied in research on neuroanatomical localization and correlation of the neurophysiology of neural pathways.
