> I think the basis upon which you define neurological disorders is arbitrary.


> There are hundreds of thousands of scientific works that demonstrate anomalies in both structure and function of the brain in Bipolar Disorder. Isn't that de facto neurological?

Neurological in the sense of involvement of nerve cells, yes. Neurological in the sense of medical specialty it belongs to, no.

Last I heard there was still no brain scan or other test that can be used for diagnosis. That sounds like a failure to understand the neurological basis of the disorder.

> In *your* opinion, is the *resultant* disease state in Bipolar Disorder a neurological condition, or is it exclusively psychological?

I don't think it is either. I would concede that you may call it neuropsychiatric.

> > Also, there are often psychological factors involved in bipolar disorder.
> How is this statement of yours salient to the categorization of Bipolar Disorder?

In the sense that you can't classify psychological factors as neurological, even if they eventually translate into effects on the nervous system.

> Psychological factors are also involved in:

Yeah, the psyche is powerful!

> In 1992, a PET scan was performed on me at the National Institutes of Health. The images demonstrated that my brain activity was significantly lower in select regions compared to healthy controls.

Yes, I saw the pictures you posted a while ago.

> Q: What prevents you from coming to the conclusion that Bipolar Disorder is a neurological disease?

I don't know.
