Through doing this benchmark I learned a lot about the nervous system and how diseases like ALS can impact it. I attained a very in-depth understanding of how the body controls movement using a flow of motor neurons in the central nervous system, and I learned why neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS are so serious because of how difficult they are to cure/reverse. I wonder what the cure for ALS will look like when it's finally discovered, and what the cause of ALS is for those who do not inherit it as that has not yet been figured out.
