    Motor neuron disorders are clinically and pathologically heterogeneous. They can be classified into those that affect primarily upper motor neurons, lower motor neurons or both. The most common disorder to affect both upper and lower motor neurons is amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Some...
