Neuroscience & Neuro-Oncology


The study of brain and spinal cord neoplasms, many of which are extremely serious and life-threatening, is known as neuro-oncology (astrocytoma, glioma, glioblastoma multiforme, ependymoma, pontine glioma, and brain stem tumours ). Gliomas of the brainstem and pons, glioblastoma multiforme, and high-grade (very anaplastic) astrocytoma are among the most aggressive brain malignancies. Not only the neoplastic cells present in brain tumour, but so are supportive vasculature, inflammatory cells, and recruited astrocytes. Solid tumours resemble abnormally grown organs or tissues. Tumor cell populations are frequently diverse, with hierarchies of cellular populations displaying a variety of differentiation characteristics, such as distinct morphologies and lineage markers.
