Bulbar Palsy occurs due to improper functioning of the cranial nerves. It happens as a result of the lower motor neuron lesion either at fascicular or nuclear level inside medulla oblongata or due to the lesions of the lower cranial nerves outside brainstem.

Cranial nerves play a vital role inside the nervous system of a human being. These nerves come out directly from the brain. There are normally twelve pairs of cranial nerves within humans, out of which three pairs appear directly from the cerebrum (including nerve 0) while rest of the nine appear from the brainstem.
Bentham Publishers is a well-established name in the scientific publication industry. They are major STM journal publishers. They have various journals related to the field of neuroscience. Some of these journals include CNS & Neurological Disorder-Drug Targets, Clinical CNS Drugs etc. For further details about these journals visit:

The authors who have contributed in Bentham Science journals are quite satisfied with the publication process as well as peer review procedures followed at BSP. The reviews from the authors can be checked online at:

The major signs and symptoms of bulbar palsy include dribbling of saliva, slurring of speech, difficulty in swallowing, nasal regurgitation, difficulty in articulating words due to CNS problem, problems in chewing etc.
For the diagnosis of bulbar palsy, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) test has been conducted by the physicians in order to check what`s going on exactly with the brain.

The exact cure for this problem is still unknown. The treatment is totally based upon providing moral support to the affected patients and reducing the aggressive degeneration of neurons rather than completely stopping the damage. The lifespan of most of the patients diagnosed with this disease is 1-3 years only.
