If neurology is the medical science that deals with the nervous system and disorders affecting it, but nothing is known about the nervous system (Christopher Reeves recent interview), how can a neurologist provide an effective cure if he doesn't know what the problem is?

Kind of like having the latest frequency synthesis intergrated TV set in your home and having a repairman come over with a case full of vacuum tubes, he opens your set, looks in the back, scracthes his head and leaves. Next time you see him, he has found a point contact type transistor (very first generation type of transistor) and thinks that may work, the guy obviously has no idea what he is doing.

Would think being a neurologist is a very frustrating job, see 20-30 patients a day, go home at night, pour a drink, and ask, "what did I accomplish today?" Oh well, I'll just flip on the computer and see how my stocks are doing.
