Stereotypies are considered purposeless, fixed forms of expression or response that may interfere with normal behavior. Stereotypies may represent a transient phenomenon in children, but may be associated with a variety of severe neurologic disorders, including specific biochemical disorders, such as Rett syndrome and Lesch Nyhan disease, and the whole spectrum of autistic disorders and pervasive developmental disorders. Stereotypic disorders may require intervention, especially when harmful, but often do not. Treatment is highly individualized.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is generally characterized by extreme fatigue that lasts for at least six months, cannot be fully explained by an underlying medical condition, worsens with physical or mental activity, and does not improve with rest. Symptoms are not homogeneous, and almost every patient has a unique and fluctuating constellation of symptoms. It is also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis or chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome.

Neuropharmacology & Neurotherapeutics
Numerous medications have well-established neuropathy links, and many others have only occasional temporal associations. Although uncommon, medication-induced neuropathies are critical to identify because of potential reversibility and limitation of toxicity. Symptoms are generally indistinguishable from prototypic toxic neuropathies, including initial distal paresthesias and sensory loss in a stocking distribution affecting large or small fiber modalities or both, and lesser and later onset distal motor impairment.

Epilepsy & Seizures
Occipital and parietal lobe seizures have distinct clinical characteristics. Occipital lobe seizures present with visual symptoms, eye blinking, and nystagmus. Parietal lobe seizures may present with somatosensory symptoms, ictal pain, and visuospatial abnormalities. Occipital and parietal lobe seizures may propagate forward and mimic temporal and frontal lobe seizures. Prognosis depends on the underlying etiology of the seizures.

The concept of neuroprotection is now important in many diseases that were once only treated symptomatically and in which a disease-modifying approach is desirable. Neuroprotective agents have an important role in the management of neurodegenerative disorders as well as acute insults such as CNS trauma, cerebral ischemia, and iatrogenic hypoxia/ischemia during surgical procedures. Neuroprotective strategies are also required to protect the brain against toxic effects of chemicals and drugs.
