Department of Mathematics Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS) Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS) Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) , or “Locked-In Syndrome”, is an extreme neurological disorder and many patients opt against life support. Most commonly, the disease strikes people between the ages of 40 and 70, and as many as 30,000 Americans have the disease at any given time. (ALS Association website). Genetic factors appear to only account for 10 percent of all ALS cases. ALS can strike anyone, anytime. There are no effective treatments and no cure. Brain activity appears to remain vigorous while muscle control atrophies degeneritively and completely.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
