Cerebral Cortex Damage Symptoms
CC lesions: Depends on the type & location, etiology, & extent of involvement of brain. ...Read more
Cerebrum is the 2 hemispheres (Right & Left) of brain.
Cerebral cortex is outer gray matter covering the brain. ...Read more
Lateral sulcus: It separates Frontal & Parietal Lobes above from the Temporal Lobe below. ...Read more
Temporal: On both sides (lateral, right & left). ...Read more
Hot is cold cold is hot pain all over focusing at the cerebral cortex could this be a sign I had a stroke? If no what else can cause this
Not Clear: It seems that you are saying that you have abnormal/unexpected sensations over a part of your head or scalp. The actual cerebral cortex can't been seen (except at surgery) and doesn't have sensation. What you seem to be describing on the scalp sounds like a local peripheral neuropathy. This means there may be some nerves in the scalp that are transmitting abnormal sensations. ...Read more
Brain spect grossly irregular activity in large area cerebral cortex with relative sparing of the occipital region possibly the R frontal area Ideas?
Is it your scan?: Presumably you didn't just wander into a nuclear medicine facility & make an impulse purchase. Your doctor ordered the scan for a reason. What is the reason? Please also repost & state what your doctor's "ideas" about the scan are; or if you have not asked your doctor, please relate why not. ...Read more
I've got extreme headaches, loss of balance, memory loss. Had MRI that showed abnormality in cerebral cortex. Treatment? Pain is debilitating!
Need more info: In order to give you a more informed answer, I would need more information about what you mean when you say there is an abnormality in the cerebral cortex. This could benign or something serious. Treatment depends upon the etiology. ...Read more
Do psychiatric drugs enlarge the basal ganglia and atrophy the cerebral cortex. Do cause brain damage? I have lingering akathisia from invega (paliperidone) shot
Side effects: All medicines have side effects. You must always weigh the benefit and the risk. Sounds like you may need something ...Read more
Anatomy = function: The different brain regions control different functions. At the same time, they are interconnected. A brainstem lesion can cause any number of cranial neuropathies, impaired breathing, and in some cases, death. Cortical lesions can affect muscle strength, personality, language, etc. See a neurologist for further discussion. Http://www. Webmd. Com/brain/picture-of-the-brain ...Read more
Motor cortex: ALL motor activity - not just smiling - is mediated by the motor cortex. The primary motor cortex is Brodmann area 4 in the precentral gyrus. There are 2 kinds of smile: voluntary (cortically mediated) & emotional (mediated by the thalamus). The brain is way, way, WAY more complex than just "action of smiling" vs " (not emotions)." That's a massive oversimplification. ...Read more
How can I speed up or enhance the development the prefrontal cortex and all other areas of the brain?
Please clarify: Please repost your question with an explanation of how and why you consider your prefrontal cortex and all other areas of your brain to be undeveloped and to need speeded-up or enhanced development. You haven't fallen for that claptrap that we only use 10% of our brains, have you? That's so ridiculous. We all use all of our brain, all of the time. ...Read more
Can a few seconds of sudden breathlessness because of any reason effect ones brain, particularly insular cortex?
NO: Cessation of respiration for seconds does no damage! ...Read more
Can severe trauma to the visual cortex of the brain be cured by a transplant or any kind of surgery to restore eyesight?
Unfortunately: There is no treatment for this.Get a more detailed answer ›
Do we have any knowledge about a decreased/lowered activity in the brain's prefrontal cortex due to antidepressant (SSRI, etc.) use?
Good? Little Info: Determining therapeutic versus side effects is always complex. Data on such issues, by current limited technology, would require both animal studies & lots of detailed metabolic PET scanner plus comparative autopsy studies to partially sort out. And yet the dominant more relevant data would be clinical: time consuming & expensive, Who is going to do such? Study: http://goo. Gl/13THgr. See comment. ...Read more
How does dopamine and serotonin (chemically) reduce fear/anxiety in de brain? Prefrontal cortex or amygdala? Or which parts of brain is involved?
Neurotransmitters: Medicines like Zoloft/Lexapro are serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Wellbutrin (bupropion) inhibits the uptake of norepinephrine and dopamine. Whether it is anxiety, irritability, anger, short fuse, or depression; these medicines regulate neurotransmitters in the brain to improve symptoms of insomnia, guilty feelings, poor concentration, fatigue, appetite disturbance, and lack of drive/interests. ...Read more
Terrible pain starts from the brain stem towards the frontal cortex, left side goes numb including the left side of the face. What may be causing this?
When you have Eye problem, it is not specifically on the eye itself, but in the visual cortex of the brain, some nerve damage. Is it true?
Visual problems: When a person has a problem with vision, they can have a problem anywhere from their cornea. Lens, retina and along the optic nerves to the visual cortex of the brain. Our retina is actually part of our central nervous system, as are the optic nerves. The muscles that move your eyeball are controlled by cranial nerves as well. Ophthalmology is the specialty of medicine that treats eye disorders. ...Read more
Usually: Most people with demyelinating disease of the brain (ms) do experience any of a wide variety of neurologic symptoms (e.g., visual changes, numbness/tingling, weakness), these may be intermittent. There are certainly cases in which a person has convincing MRI findings of ms but has no objective clinical signs or symptoms, though even these people are likely to develop symptoms at some point. ...Read more
Fever, neural sympts: Beyond generalizable symptoms of infection ie. Fevers and signs like elevated white count, elevated platelets, CRP etc. Brain abscesses will also manifest with signs related to where they are - ie. Lesion's location will determine specific signs where they are affected and if the lesion is large enough and starts to exert pressure it can also cause headaches or meningeal signs like a stiff neck. ...Read more
