    A neuro psychologist is a psychologist who specializes in studying brain behavior relationships. Neuropsychologists have extensive training in the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the nervous system. Some neuro psychologists specialize in research while specialize in evaluating and treating people who are thought to have something wrong with the way in which their nervous system is functioning. Neuropsychologists study brain behavior relationships under very specific circumstances which are...
  • The Brain And Cranial Nerves
    1,678 words
    The Brain and Cranial Nerves One of the most complex and fascinating things in the human body is the brain. The body is "capable of almost everything, but it would not be possible, without the brain receiving information, and analyzing the information." The brain is aware of its surroundings, via input from the spinal cord and cranial nerves. Cranial nerves with sensory functions allow us to smell and see. Nerves with both motor and sensory functions are responsible for everything from tasting a...

    The Secret of Seeing The lights are off, visibility zero, you here a noise, you get up and fall over your table; now imagine that experience your whole life by being blind. There is more then what meets the eye when we refer to sight. The eye can be surgically trained to see but the mind can not identify the object if it has never been seen. When blind patients feel an object they know what it is because that is how the brain has been trained to identify objects. Those who are deprived of sight ...

    The Human Brain Through the use of molecular biology it is thought that the hominidae family first appeared about 5 million years ago. Based on this time frame it is believed that an African Hominoid lineage was present shortly before that time, approximately 10 myp, which contained the common ancestor to both the chimpanzee and human. The split into proto-chimpanzee and proto-human occurred during the last million years of the Miocene epoch. (Changeux and Chavaillon pg. 61). The fossils, especi...
  • Brain Cancer Tumors Use About 50 Different Chemotherapy
    1,023 words
    Brain Cancer The brain is made up of millions upon millions of cells. These cells are formed from before birth, up until about 7 years old. Once these brain cells stop dividing, they are never meant to divide again. You can see that the division of brain cells is under strict regulation and control. When this control is lost in a single cell, then it starts dividing in an uncontrolled manner. All of the data obtained through research on cancer shows that this disease is caused by a rapidly divid...
  • Aphasia Brain Language Individuals
    1,255 words
    Aphasia is a language disorder that results from damage to portions of the brain that are responsible for language. For most people, these are parts of the left side (hemisphere) of the brain. Aphasia usually occurs suddenly, often as the result of a stroke or head injury, but it may also develop slowly, as in the case of a brain tumor. The disorder impairs the expression and understanding of language as well as reading and writing. "Aphasia may co-occur with speech disorders such as dysarthria ...

    In this paper one will learn the different parts of the brain and their functions. Although the brain isn't the largest organ of the human body it is the most complex and controlling organ. It is amazing how complicated the brain is. The brain controls every action within and out of your body. The brain has main areas that contain different areas that have specific functions. For instance the basal ganglia holds the lentiform and the caudate. The brain isn't just "THE BRAIN" it is actually a gr...
  • The Human Brain Vs The Computer

    The Human Brain vs. the Computer Over the millennia, Man has come up with countless inventions, each more ingenious than the last. However, only now, as the computer arises that mankind's sentience itself is threatened. Ridiculous, some may cry, but I say look about you! The computer has already begun to hold sway over so many of the vital functions that man has prided himself upon before. Our lives are now dependent upon the computer and what it tells you. Even now, I type this essay upon a co...
  • Measuring Brain Activity Glucose Utilization
    536 words
    Measuring Brain Activity Most of the noninvasive imaging methods estimate brain activity by changes in blood flow, oxygen consumption, glucose utilization, etc. Discuss the potential problems with using this type of indirect measure. The brain is the control center of the human body. It sends and receives millions of signals every second, day and night, in the form of hormones, nerve impulses, and chemical messengers. This exchange of information makes us move, eat, sleep, and think. Obstruction...

    Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a lifelong disorder, which can cause a person to do things repeatedly. This disorder is identified by two general symptoms: obsessions and compulsions. An obsession can be defines as an unwelcome, distressing thought or mental image. (Schwartz, 1996) It is a thought that annoys you so much that it causes distress and anxiety. Compulsions are the behaviors that people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder perform in an attempt to get rid...
  • Left Brain Side Control Sides

    Your brain has two sides. And each has a distinctly different way of looking at the world. Do you realize that in order for you to read this article, the two sides of your brain must do completely different things? The more we integrate those two sides, the more integrated we become as people. Integration not only increases our ability to solve problems more creatively, but to control physical maladies such as epilepsy and migrants, replace certain damaged brain functions and even learn to 'thin...

    Theory behind BrainWave Generator EEG and the brain's state EEG (Electroencephalography) technology is used to measure brain's electrical vibrations from the surface of the scalp. The resulting EEG pattern will contain frequency elements mainly below 30 Hz. The frequencies are categorized into four states as follows: State Frequency range Amplitude State of mind Delta 0. 5 Hz - 4 Hz high (up to 200 uV) Deep sleep Theta 4 Hz - 8 Hz low (5 uV - 20 uV) Drowsiness (also first stage of sleep) Alpha 8...
  • Male Vs Female Human Brain
    685 words
    The Male and Female Brain It is proven that the male and female brains differ, but can one prove that it affects the behavior? Many scientists would agree that ones behavior is determined by his / her gender. Although others are convinced that social conditioning is the cause for the differences between the male and female, it is very unlikely that biological differences play no role in behavior. The male and female brains differ not only by how they work, but also on the size. For example, Nata...

    My project question is, How fast does the brain read geometric shapes compared to optical illusions I will try to find this out by experimenting, reading, and researching the resources that I have acquired. I have planned my experiments using two simple procedures. In the first, I will draw a puzzle of different color shapes. I will give the test subject a piece of paper with a shape from the puzzle on it. I will have them study the paper. Then I will reveal the puzzle to them and ask them to f...

    Why Do We Yawn The definition of yawning is to open the mouth involuntarily with a prolonged, deep inhalation of air. Yawning is a normal response to fatigue and drowsiness, but excessive yawning can be caused by a vaso vagal reaction and may indicate a heart problem. Normal yawning may be induced to cleanse the brain. At the deepest part of the breath when the lungs have the greatest force, the lungs fill up the ribcage, then lift the ribs. The ribs lift the spine and the force is transferred f...
