That there may be one causal factor associated with a number of neurological conditions - Cryptochrome/Magnetoreception
I found a number of commonalities between specific learning difficulties, mental health conditions and various other genetic/neurological conditions e.g Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, etc.
Differences in sensitivity to blue light, UV, flicker and EMF.
Links to geomagnetic activity
Differences in melatonin levels and circadian rhythm in people with schizophrenia, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, autism, dyslexia, depression, Parkinson’s Diseases, and other conditions.
Various health conditions are linked to calcium channel activity, and research has published showing some genetic commonalities across some conditions
There is also research linking cryptochrome to schizophrenia and biopolar.
The Superior colliculus (part of the brain and linked to eye movement) is associated with various specific learning difficulties and mental health issues, and other conditions.
Differences in sensory perceptions and multi-modal integration are found in people with specific learning difficulties, mental health conditions, etc. There are also differences in the ways these groups respond to optical illusions and contrast definition.
Cryptochrome and magnetite are found in human beings. They are also found in other species that use magnetoreception
Magnetoreception is thought to involve the activation of cryptochrome by blue light and the engagement of calcium channels. Studies of magnetoreception in mammals has suggested the superior colliculus and pineal gland as the locus for magnetoreception. Some species also ultilise contrast definition.
