    Neurological disorders categorized as neurodegenerative, neuropsychiatric, and neurotraumatic impose a substantial health burden and cause a frail impact on life attributes. The use of synthetic drugs can have undesirable side effects, making neurotherapeutics challenging. Research on neuroprotection aiming for the utilization of safer natural compounds; phytochemicals specifically – is a cutting-edge approach. NeuroPhytomedicine intends to present readers with a wide-ranging and state-of-the-art appearance at the beneficial properties of phytochemicals on various neurological ailments.

    It additionally contains sections explaining:

    • Applications of phyto-nanotechnology in neurological ailments,

    • Phytoconstituents related deep learning and machine learning-based solutions

    for neurological disorders,

    • Epigenetic relevance pertaining to modulation by phytochemicals.

    The goal of NeuroPhytomedicine is to give readers a thorough and up-to-date look at how phytochemicals affect the brain and neurological illnesses in a way that is helpful for research scholars, academicians, scientists, neuroscientists, physicians, and researchers from the pharmaceutical industry.
