What parts of the brain are most likely affected by alzheimer's disease?

What parts of the brain are most likely affected by alzheimer's disease?

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.

Can you tell me how cocaine effects the different parts of the brain?

Can you tell me how cocaine effects the different parts of the brain?

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.

What parts of the brain are involved when you hear something and look at it?

What parts of the brain are involved when you hear something and look at 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.

What parts of the brain regenerate cells? Also, would the loss in brain cells create loss in intelligence?

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?

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.

What part/parts of the brain do hemmoragic strokes take place?

What part/parts of the brain do hemmoragic strokes take place?

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.
