    adverb II

    Is there a difference between:
    1-Selectively, the nerves are desroyed.
    2-The nerves are selectively destroyed.
    3-The nerves are destroyed selectively.

    I think there is only one possible interpretation for those three sentences. No difference. (The second one is the most natural.)
