Question Description


Neurological System

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

Then click again on the link you need.  You may need to type your topic into the search box once you get to the web site. 

TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) - The CDC web site. 
SCI (Spinal Cord Injury.) - The UAB web site. 
Stroke (CVA) (include the 2 different types) - CDC web site,  or
PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) - Mental Health Association site
Schizophrenia - Mental Health Association site 
Alzheimer's Disease - Alzheimer's Foundation web site 
Cataract - National Eye Institute site
Diabetic Retinopathy - National Eye Institute site
Retinal Detachment - National Eye Institute site

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
