I wish we had an entire quarter to spend on the Neurological System! Unfortunately, we're trying to cover that, plus Eyes and Ears, plus Mental Health all in one week!
Let's work on some disorders that occur frequently. Please choose one of these disorders. Use the recommended web site for your research! That is very important. Part of your college experience is learning to research accurately . After you decide on your topic Click HERE: RECOMMENDED WEB SITES FOR THE DISCUSSIONS, STARTING WEEK 5

Read about your topic. Write your post briefly. This is a busy week, so 3 to 5 sentences of information, "in your own words", should be enough. Give information first, and then, if you know someone who has had this problem, it would be very helpful for you to write a few more sentences explaining their situation, if you want to. Of course do not use anyone's real name, due to confidentiality reasons. Be sure to cite your source
