Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) and Wilson's disease (WD) is considered the prototype of neurodegenerative disorders characterised by the overloading of iron and copper in the central nervous system. Growing evidence has unveiled the involvement of these metals in brain cortical neurotransmission. Aim of this study was to assess cortical excitability profile due to copper and iron overload.

Abstract

Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) and Wilson's disease (WD) is considered the prototype of neurodegenerative disorders characterised by the overloading of iron and copper in the central nervous system. Growing evidence has unveiled the involvement of these metals in brain cortical neurotransmission. Aim of this study was to assess cortical excitability profile due to copper and iron overload.
