Was wondering if anyone else noticed how annoying the colors are of the basal ganglia direct + indirect pathways in FA 2012. They made the stimulatory arrows red and the inhibitory arrows green. WHY would they do that? It just makes it confusing. I always thought green=on and red=off by convention. Guess not. Okay, done with rant haha.

You are not alone-- this made the diagram incomprehensible for me. I'm going to print out a new one and paste it on top of the FA one. So much rage.

pasting a better diagram is a very good idea...thanks! I too found the FA diagram very confusing w/ the irrational color use.

ANY diagram is better than the one in First Aid 2012. Have no idea why they changed it (other than someone saying they wanted something more colorful for the new color edition).
