The Japanese Society of Neurology discusses research, education, and medical care in the field of neurology and makes recommendations to the national government. Dr. Mizusawa, the former representative director of the Japanese Society of Neurology, selected committee members and made "Recommendations for Promotion of Research for Overcoming Neurological Diseases" in 2013. After that, the Future Vision Committee was established in 2014, and these recommendations have been revised once every few years by the committee. This time, the Future Vision Committee made the latest recommendations from 2020 to 2021. In this document, the general part is 1) What is neurological disease? 2) Current status of neurological disease overcoming research, 3) Significance and necessity of neurological disease overcoming research, 4) Research promotion system for overcoming neurological disease, 5) the roadmap for overcoming neuromuscular diseases, 6) a summary version of these recommendations are explained using figures that are easy for the general public to understand.
