The mail list CHILD-NEURO@LYRIS.DUNDEE.NET 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, then by the University of Michigan, and now by Dundee Internet Services, with the generous financial support of the Child Neurology Society.  The software running the list is Lyris.

Setting Digest or Mime-Digest formats

Mail can be received in several forms. We ask subscribers not to use the regular "mail" setting (individual settings); we pay by the outgoing message and this adds up over the >1200 users.

Please see "Comparing the digest and mime-digest formats" to help you decide which is better for you.

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:


In either the subject line or body of the text write:

Set Child-Neuro Digest


Set Child-Neuro mimedigest

(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.)

Alternatively, go to the and, under My Account, go to the Essentials tab and change your settings.


Visit the page
Click "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.
