Brain Parts And Functions Chart
Most Medical Student: Most students remember the parts of the brain and their function usually either by rote memory or by association.
I think I have the neurological disorder where two parts of my brain function as one. What is this called?
Not sure: It is difficult for me, now, to think of what you're thinking about? I have heard of people not having a certain structure in their brain, called the corpus collosum, which runs in the middle of the brain and connects the two sides which are called hemispheres. Could that possibly be to what you are refering?
Does it matter?: "A habit is something you can do without thinking, which is why most of us have so many of them." Frank A. Clark
Hallucinations: Yes, that can happen. Please consult with a neurologist to discuss with your symptoms in detail.
My husband damaged all four parts of his brain in car wreck. Can he recover more and more over time?
Family practice: It will be a long and difficult time for both of you. It sounds like you have a strong faith. Prayer and faith can bring miracles. I hope you have a strong family to help you.See 1 more doctor answer
Hypnosis: Studies using MRI showed that in highly susceptible subjects there were increase in brain activity in anterior cingulate gyrus and left side of prefrontal cortex.
Cocaine doesn't have: Different effects on different parts of the brain. It works in older areas in the midbrain that are our reward/pleasure centers, and causes the release of lots of dopamine, the chemical released when we are happy, or exercising. Over time, excessive use of stimulants, particularly methamphetamine, but Cocaine as well, can damage those centers to where you don't feel pleasure without it.
Neuroanatomy: Sound waves are transduced by the inner ear mechanism into a neural impulse in the auditory nerve, which then sends information to the brainstem, thalamus, and, ultimately, the auditory cortex for processing. In the eye, the retina transduces light into a neural impulse, and the optic nerve transmits this information to the thalamus and then to the visual cortex of the brain for processing.
NO: There is no specific region of the brain that controls music. The entire brain responds to the pleasant features or stimulating features or agitating features. An excellent detailed analysis can be found in the book by dr. Oliver sacks - musicophilia.See 1 more doctor answer
What parts of the brain regenerate cells? Also, would the loss in brain cells create loss in intelligence?
Animal studies: No known areas of brain which contain "intelligence". This is all way into the future now. The parts of the brain which show regrowth are laboratory studies- fascinating and intriguing, but still you will have to hit the books and burn the midnight oil!
Is it normal for a baby to have hydrocephalus but the fluid is not constant? And the fluid fill parts of the brain that didn't develop?
Could happen: Not all hydrocephalus is from obstruction. In cases where a part of the brain failed to develop there will be fluid where brain tissue should have been. This is called porencephalic ventricular dilatation. The degree of dilatation may vary depending on body position.
Ketamine: Is a NMDA receptor antagonist as potential analgesics in the management of chronic pain. It inhibits a neural communication between the thalamus and the cerebral cortex as a general anesthetic agent. Long-term abuse can lead to paranoia, depression and In high doses can cause unconsciousness and death.See 1 more doctor answer
Ketamine: Ketamine acts on NMDA receptor)N-Methyl-D-aspartate receptors). They are present throughout the cerebral cortex and are also present in the hippocampus. However, its known that glutamate receptors are diffusely present throughout at least half of all neural tissue.
HPO (short version): It's called the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis (hpo.) the highest center is the hypothalamus, which prouces gnrh; this talks to the pituitary gland, which will produce fsh and lh in response. The ovaries respond to fsh and lh.
Any part: Since the brain has excellent blood flow, in theory, a bleed can occur anywhere, there is a vessel. Location of injury is important as th functional loss will be determined this way. If cause is aneurysm, or bubble, these are often in the central circulation from the circle if Willis and can affect the brain stem, forebrain or middle branches that supply movement centers.See 1 more doctor answer
