The Cerebrum has 4 lobes; Frontal, Parietal, Occipital & Temporal. For example, Frontal for Executive functions, Occipital for Vision & reading, Parietal for Language, Temporal for Auditory, Cerebellum for Balance, Brain stem for Vital organ function such as heart/lung ...Read more

Vitamin D critical for immune system. Bodily health to prevent diabetes or blood pressure issues from affecting brain adversely. Good hydration to maintain brain functions. Really a secondary outcome of good nutrition in general. ...Read more

Control. ...Read more

Headache/seizure: Most people with brain tumors will have headaches that can be severe and associated with exam changes such as weakness or speech problems. Others can present with new onset seizures so anyone with a new seizure should be evaluated with a head ct/mri. Some brain tumors are benign but the aggressive tumors are called brain cancers usually glioblastoma. These must be followed after surgery/radiation. ...Read more

Some differences: The dominant hemisphere usually determines the dominant hand, so, left hemisphere in right handers, but right hemisphere about only 40% left handedness. Pre-dominant speech connections over dominant side, especially left again. Yet delirium might occur from a stroke on the right side near temporal, parietal, occipital junctions. ...Read more
Cerebral lobes: They are 4 ; Frontal, Parietal, Temporal & Occipital. ...Read more
Left hemisphere: This controls the right side body functions such as motor & sensory, and through connections with the right hemisphere, it controls complex activities. ...Read more
Brain anatomy: Within the skull there is a thick membrane called the tentorium which partially separates the cavity into two main sections. The cerebellum is the brain tissue below the tentorium and the cerebrum is all the brain tissue above the tentorium The two are connected via the brainstem. ...Read more

Had a mri, cerebrum:small sub cortical white matter flair hyperintensity, 2 mm in size in right anterior frontal love. No restricted diffusion. Mean?
Often Normal: White matter hyperintensities are an extremely common finding in brain mri, especially in older people. However, just because these spots are common does not mean they are completely benign. An increased number of hyperintensities has been associated with stroke, dementia, and other problems. The cause of these changes is complex, but likely represents vascular changes. ...Read more
What happens if tiny blood vessels in the cerebrum become obstructed what could happen to the person?
