Prior to completing your initial post, read Chapter 5 and 8 of your course text and viewing Sleep Disorders.These required materials examine topics on neurotransmitter andreceptor systems, anatomical structures, neurological functionalpathways and their role in control of movement, consciousness and sleep,and how they correlate to selected related disorders. Choose from thefollowing options for your initial post:

Option A: Evaluate one of the disorders ofconsciousness covered this week. Explain theories of etiology(causation), including the neuroanatomical structures,neurotransmitter/receptor systems, and the functional nervous systempathways involved. Include an analysis of the contribution of genetics,the environment, and lifestyle to the development and natural history ofthe condition. Provide information regarding diagnostic criteria andevaluate options for care interventions (both pharmacologic andnonpharmacologic). Lastly, identify the neuroanatomical structures andany neurotransmitter/receptor systems involved.  

You must use a minimum of one peer-reviewed source that was publishedwithin the last five years, documented in APA style, as outlined in theAshford Writing Center.  Your post should be a minimum of 250 words. Youmay cite and reference your textbook, required reading and/ormultimedia, but these will not fulfill the source requirement.  

Option B: Evaluate one of the sleep disorders coveredthis week. Explain theories of etiology (causation), including theneuroanatomical structures, neurotransmitter/receptor systems, and thefunctional nervous system pathways involved.  Include an analysis of thecontribution of genetics, environment, and lifestyle to the developmentand natural history of the condition. What information can you addregarding diagnostic criteria? Evaluate the options for careinterventions (both pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic).  Lastly,identify the neuroanatomical structures and anyneurotransmitter/receptor systems involved.
