NEUROEPIDEMIOLOGY: The increasing burden of mortality from neurological diseases
A new study based on WHO data reports rates of mortality from neurological diseases in the developed world from 1989-1991 to 2012-2014. The reported increase in neurological disease mortality, which was greatest in the USA, highlights the rise of neurological diseases as an emerging threat to global health.
