Child-Neuro E-mail List


The mail list CHILD-NEURO@WAISMAN.WISC.EDU is an international discussion group which deals with clinical and research topics in Child Neurology. Topics of discussion have included diagnostic and management issues, sources of diagnostic studies and hard-to-come-by medications, and requests for subjects for research studies and patients for case reports. The list is restricted to pediatric neurologists, pediatricians, adult neurologists, and neurosurgeons. Parents of children with neurological problems may wish to visit The Library of The Family Village for a listing of parent and patient oriented Internet resourves.
