Great job Herun, the "Information Theory" section really made me think.

Very intriguing topic and superbly written! I didn't realize you and I both talked about Derek Paravicini and his perfect pitch, but from slightly different perspectives. I discuss his musical abilities as part of my topic on savant syndrome. He's actually one of very few prodigious musical savants today. Please feel free to visit my page - I've linked your page to mine. Good work!

Here are some interesting primary papers that look at autistic musical savants and their perfect pitch, one of which I used as my reference.
- Pring, L., Woolf. K., Tadic, v. (2008). Melody and Pitch Processing in Five Muiscal Savants with Congenital Disabilities. Perception, 37(2), 290-307.
- Young, R., & Nettelbeck, T. (1995). The Abilities of a Musical Savant and his Family. J Autism Dev Disord, 25(3), 231-248.
- Heaton, P. (2003). Pitch Memory, Labelling and Disembedding in Autism. J Child Psychol Psychiatry, 44(4), 543-51.

I can link you more to the papers, but its important to remember that as Parkinson's disease progresses there are a slew of nonmotor symptoms that also make themselves present. As for your second point, since DBS treatment is done through a surgical implantation of electrodes, patients who receive this treatment usually have it for life.

Thank you. I'm glad you liked it. I didn't find anything about sleep deprivation and sex. Peoples moods are usually very negative and seem to be irritated easily by others. I would guess that sex would not be likely to happen when one is sleep deprived based on the persons mood. Sorry I couldn't be much more help.

Wonderful images! Would it be possible to make a few of them larger?

Great work Soojin! I like how you put a "controversy" section at the end, it really gives a full picture of your topic! :)

Your page is absolutely amazing Aishwarya! So detailed and clearly written!

Hi Pavel,

I found your neurowiki very comprehensive, well written, and very interesting! I recently had a concussion and I've just started boxing - so I will definitely be keeping this information in mind! Great job :)

by Christine TsilasChristine Tsilas, 03 Apr 2013 18:48

Looks really good, Chris!
It's well written, and really thorough. Good job :)

Thank you! :)
Ah, that's strange, I don't see that happening on my browser. I'll try to edit that!

Thanks for the feedback!

by A Dillenburg ScurA Dillenburg Scur, 03 Apr 2013 18:37

Thanks Matt!
They did use verbal cues in all of the studies. Some studies do look at aspects of motor muscle memory - wish I had time to include a section on it. It wasn't 100% related to intentional forgetting though, so I chose not to include it.

Thanks for the feedback! :)

by A Dillenburg ScurA Dillenburg Scur, 03 Apr 2013 18:36

Thanks, Paramanathan!

I really enjoyed the article too - that's why I cite it so many times, haha. It's a really thorough study, don't you think?

by A Dillenburg ScurA Dillenburg Scur, 03 Apr 2013 18:34

Thanks Sivaniya!
Most of the stuff on Psychogenic Amnesia are case studies, and I'm not certain if there are any specific cases where an individual experiences two traumatic events after trying to forget them - that certainly would be interesting, though! Definitely worth a look around the literature. :)

Very interesting topic! I'm just wondering if you know more about the side-effects of DBS. And also, is it possible for patients who have received DBS to receive it again under some circumstances.

by Qian JiangQian Jiang, 03 Apr 2013 18:33

Thanks you. As for the pictures not showing up, I had that issue earlier but then when i refreshed the page they were visible. Hopefully it's a short term thing and not permanent.

Wonderful page explaining the great benefits of exercise on the brain. I feel as if this would be very useful for post-concussion patients. Is there any research regarding exercise effects on the brain post-concussion?
