Parts Of The Brain Affected By The Stroop Effect
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.
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.
The basal ganglia: Hundington's disease is a disease which destroys the part of the brain called the basal ganglia which is important for controlling movement.See 1 more doctor answer
Medial temporal lobe: Alzheimer's starts in the hippocampus and the medial temporal lobe. In end-stage alzheimer’s there is widespread atrophy. Early onset alzheimer’s (<65 years old) has a different presentation. There is usually some mild hippocampal atrophy, but the most striking finding is parietal atrophy, with atrophy of the posterior cingulum and the precuneus. The hippocampus can be normal. Hope this helps.See 2 more doctor answers
Can brain damage in older veteran cause delusions and hallucinations/ what parts of brain are affected?
Dementia: Frontal lobe cause blunting. Parietal lobe cause auditory hallucinations. Temporal lobe cause disturbed emotions. Occipital lobe cause visual hallucinations.
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
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.
Most Medical Student: Most students remember the parts of the brain and their function usually either by rote memory or by association.
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.
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
Only 1 large part: Cerebrum has a left and right hemisphere.
What is the overall name for the two large parts of the brain not including the brainstem and cerebellum?
Brain: Cerebral Cortices (each is one Cerebral cortex, Right & Left). Also called Cerebral Hemispheres.
