The mail list CHILD-NEURO@UMICH.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 resources.
The list had been run out of server provided by the Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin but is now provided by the University of Michigan. The software running the list is changing from Listserv to Lyris.

The digest format will compile all of the days messages and send these messages to you in a SINGLE posting (this will reduce the number of messages you receive, but will NOT change the content). To change your subscription to a digest format, send a message to:
PLEASE DO NOT SEND THIS MESSAGE TO CHILD-NEURO@UMICH.EDU!
In either the subject line or body of the text write:
Set Child-Neuro Digest
To return to the undigested setting (we are not a GI list, after all) and receive the individual mailings, send the following instead, again, either in the subject line or body:
Set Child-Neuro Mail
(You may want to set Digest, for example, if you go out of town. Alternatively, you can "Set Child-Neuro Nomail" to stop your mail when you're gone and then "Set Child-Neuro Mail" to resume it when you return.)
An alternative form of the Digest is the MIME-Digest setting. This still comes as a single daily message, but instead of have each posting listed sequentially in a single, long message, an index message comes, listing each of the daily postings, and each posting comes as an attachment. The MIME form of the digest is often easier to read (and, in some situations, gives cleaner messages with less formatting confusion) but requires the reader to open individual attachments. To receive the MIME form of digest, send a message saying
Set Child-Neuro Mimedigest
Alternatively, go to the Child-Neuro Settings and Archives Page and click "Your Settings."
Child-Neuro Settings and Archives Page at the University of Michigan:
Click "Read Messages."
The messages are listed from most recent to oldest, with threads (messages regarding the same topic) indicated by arrows and indentations.
Searches of the archives can be done by entering keyword and specifying whether you are looking for "any" or "all" of the words you entered ("or" or "and") and whether you want to search the entire message, body, or header of the message. Unfortunately, it is not possible to search by date of posting. Also, all of the messages from Waisman have been imported but given the date of importation rather than their original posting date.
