[unknown comment][edit]

In the treating of epileptics I find it most exciting that a Ketogenic diet could function almost as well as the chemical drugs. These diets I read upon, are very high in fat content and almost little to no carbohydrates. I ask myself how could this work in a complicated machine like the brain? In a world like the one we have today where just about everyone is looking for the panacea through herbs, natural elements,the sun, the moon, meditation, etc, it is wonderful to see how we are trying to get out of what once was recognized (and still is) the greatest invention of all, cure through medicines created in the laboratory. I feel that in the case of an epileptic, the illness in itself is so scary, people do not seem too grow accustom to the seizures, no matter how many they have,as a matter of fact the more you have the more dangerous it gets so its probably not going to be easy to wait for a diet to "click" in your brain. This has to be the most difficult part while in this illness. Meanwhile you take a drug like Tigretol, Depakene, and you feel better almost instantly. You can have the seizures less often and this will give the patient a better quality of life.

Caption[edit]

I just removed the caption to a diagram. The caption appeared to have little relationship to the diagram, as it talked about "levels" of analysis. The diagram shows links between disciplines. It has nothing whatsoever to do with "levels" of anything. If the picture is to remain, the a suitable caption ought to be written for it. Amandajm (talk) 09:39, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

Redundant articles[edit]

There are a number of related articles that cover basically the same topic as this one:

I'm thinking that Nervous system disease just redirect to this page (Neurological disorder). Central nervous system disease I'm not sure what to do with, maybe a merge. And delete List of neurological conditions and disorders after adding all the articles to Category:Neurological disorders. I'm sure there are better ideas out there so I just want to throw this out and see what you think. Gccwang (talk) 21:13, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
