Reference Page

Because of my research background, I have been able to gather a never ending supply of references, mostly pertaining to Adverse Mechanical Neuromeningeal Tension (AMNT), that is, the concept of nervous system involvement in the generation of symptoms. I have taken a few references out of my list, to try to stimulate some thought and interest in this subject, so that any reader of these pages may want to share their thoughts and experiences about AMNT.
