    Just an Appreciation for good Data

    I’m doing the nightshift in the sleep lab right now and got nothing to do for the next 7 hours. But that’s okay because the EEG-data we are collecting is just SO CLEAN today. I love it when the EEG actually works because there are so many things that can disturb the signal. It’s so exciting...

    Neuropsychological Testing, IQ, WAIS / WISC, etc.

    I'm starting a separate thread on this. I was looking at my old WAIS-IV test scores. I didn't really know what they meant. The psychologist explained the test, but it wasn't enough. I looked for more information about the tests and what they are supposed to measure. I hope the links are...

    Hello. I'm self-diagnosed, and perhaps incorrectly, but Asperger's (according to the DSM-IV, anyway) fits me very well. My therapist and my psychiatrist believe my bipolar disorder explains everything I've been through as a kid and my social awkwardness now, saying that even aside from bipolar...

    How were "refrigerator moms" treated by society when this theory was popular?

    I recently delved a bit more into the abandoned theory from the 1940s that autism was somehow caused by mothers being distant and uncaring by their children. It's a messed up theory, and I can only imagine the torment the parents went through by their community. I feel like there are even...
