Various mechanisms: The classic neurological diseases that involve myelin are Multiple Sclerosis, and Neuromyelitis Optica. Both Alzheimer's and Parkinson's involve nerve cell dysfnctn, and resultant neurotransmitter deficiencies. Some peripheral nerve disorders attack the central axon, and are termed axonal neuropathies.
