(e.g. Malaria, Toxoplasma gondii and Giardia lamblia, etc.)

• Brain tumours and tumours in any other part of the CNS/PNS
• Strokes and the subsequent damage caused by them
• Alzheimer’s disease
• Pick’s disease
• Ischemia disease
• Dementia and its underlying causes
• Other neuron damaging genetic and hereditary diseases
• Thyroid disorders like hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism and thyroid cancer
• Blood disorders
• Bone density decline and detection of fractures
