Neurodegeneration is now thought to be an irreversible condition. It is important to have a thorough understanding of these disorders and to take measures and cures if possible before the condition develops. Biomarkers play a critical role in various symptoms. Understanding the mechanisms of diseases can help develop novel biomarkers, which is a crucial step in managing neurodegenerative disorders. This review examined the pathophysiology of neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's, disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, as well as the biomarkers used to diagnose them.
