Option A: Evaluate one of the disorders of
consciousness covered this week. Explain theories of etiology
(causation), including the neuroanatomical structures,
neurotransmitter/receptor systems, and the functional nervous system
pathways involved. Include an analysis of the contribution of genetics,
the environment, and lifestyle to the development and natural history of
the condition. Provide information regarding diagnostic criteria and
evaluate options for care interventions (both pharmacologic and
nonpharmacologic). Lastly, identify the neuroanatomical structures and
any neurotransmitter/receptor systems involved.
You must use a minimum of one peer-reviewed source that was published
within the last five years, documented in APA style, as outlined in the
Ashford Writing Center. Your post should be a minimum of 250 words. You
may cite and reference your textbook, required reading and/or
multimedia, but these will not fulfill the source requirement.
