Multiple System Atrophy News and Research

RSS
Multiple-system atrophy (MSA) is a progressive neurological condition in which specific areas of the brain undergo neural degeneration. The three brain areas primarily affected are the brain stem, basal ganglia and cerebellum, portions of the brain that regulate bodily functions and motor control.
