Hearing that a family member has died is such an awful and wrenching experience for the relative that it’s easy to forget the emotional toll that must be taken by doctors sharing the news. It was laid bare in a photo shared on Reddit this morning however,…

At some point in your life, you’ve probably been labeled a “right-brain thinker” (you’re so creative!) or a “left-brain thinker” (you’re so logical). Maybe this has shaped the way you see yourself or view the world. Well, either way it’s bogus science,…

all-Neuro (Neurosurgery, Neuroscience, Neurology, and more) and Infectious Diseases Blog
Introduction

This blog talks about everything that is somehow connected to neurons, neurology, neuroscience, etc.

It provides some reviews or articles of the new relevant research that is being done and sometimes my own thoughts and ideas on the matter. This blog also gives basic information about neural science, virology and infectious diseases, which can be useful for those who study those fields.

This blog was first started in June 2010 to share some articles, that have been written as a short summary for my colleagues, to help them study medicine; neuroanatomy to be precise. Later it began to cover several other fields, such as neuroscience and neurosurgery.

In 2012 this blog started to follow several other topics, such as infectious diseases and more precisely virology.
