Default Help locating information.

Does anyone know where I can find the information that explains how 50%-60% of motor neurons are dead before symptoms begin.

I've tried the search feature but can't seem to locate it. I don't think theres an acutal thread about it just somewhere where someone gave an explanation.

You may try searching some of Halfin's threads. He always gives such informed information. ALS/MND Support Group Forums - View Profile: halfin Click on this, then on his page click show all statistics.

I believe that statement is only true of lower motor neuron pathology and refers to the degree of damage necessary to cause clinical weakness in a specific muscle, rather than a general statement of systemic parameters.

I had asked my neuro about this one time and he agreed it was a true statement for PLS. He just didn't get into the science behind it.

Welcome to the group!
you might want to post your own thread and ask it on the "do I have als" board, that way you will get more answers.
