For each selected pathology, you should provide the following information: an explanation of the underlying functional or structural deficit present in the condition, predicted deficits based on your knowledge of the normal function and structure of the nervous system (these are educated guesses based on your understanding of nervous system function), and an explanation of at least three signs/symptoms that are seen with this condition (based on sources found during research you have conducted into the chosen conditions).  Your discussion MUST include an explanation describing how the deficit produces the observable signs/symptoms AND a statement describing how your chosen conditions affect homeostasis within the body.

Choose two of the following nervous system pathologies to discuss:

Parkinsons disease
Tay-Sachs disease
Multiple sclerosis
Polio
