As I sat in the crowded van, I started to imagine what the trip would be like. I imagined the teeming trees, the colorful and blooming flowers, and all of the creatures that my inquisitive eyes might glance upon. Just this thought amazed me and rejuvenated my cramped body. Soon my imagination was put to the back of my brain and my "real" senses were...

  • Phantom Limb Pain

  • Same Areas As The Right Hemisphere
    572 words
    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 gro...
  • Temporal Lobe In The Brain
    501 words
    Occipital, Frontal, and Temporal Lobes The occipital lobes are the center of our visual perception system. They are not particularly vulnerable to injury because of their location at the back of the brain, although any significant trauma to the brain could produce subtle changes to our visual-perceptual system, such as visual field defects and sco tomas. The Peri striate region of the occipital lobe is involved in processing, discrimination of movement and color discrimination (Westmoreland et a...
  • Its Prey And The T Rex
    445 words
    Tyrannosaurus Rex was the dominant predator in the late Cretaceous period. The Tyrannosaurus Rex, or T-Rex for short, lived about 85 million to 65 million years ago. T-Rex often resided in moist, humid, semi-tropical areas, usually near rivers or forested swamps. T-Rex fossils have been found in North America and Mongolia. The T-Rex was a large, dangerous predator that walked on two powerful legs. It had tiny arms with two fingers each. Their feet resembled birds and were fully equipped with gar...
  • Differences Between Human And Ape Brains
    2,112 words
    Homo Aquaticus? I. Introduction When the human brain is compared with the brains of apes there are several obvious differences; the centers for the sense of smell and foot control are larger in apes than in humans, but the centers for hand control, airway control, vocalization, language and thought are larger in humans. In my paper, I will describe the most defined differences of brain size and centers between humans and their closest relatives, chimpanzees, to compare them with other mammals an...
  • Normal Brain Activity
    2,915 words
    Brain Science, also known as nerve science, has been classified as an adventure. It mostly deals with our behavior, as well as speech, movement, coordination, and basically any part of our life in general is associated with it. As we study the brain more and more over the last twenty years, we begin to discover more and more about it and its hundreds of thousands of complex and involved tasks. Let us start with the basics, the brain from the out side is about 3 pounds of tissue. It contains two ...
  • Brain Basis Of Synesthetic Color Experience
    1,456 words
    Synesthesia is a phenomenon in which a sensory experience in one modality triggers a sensory experience in another modality. This experience may take many forms with the pairings of various senses. One synesthete, for instance, may hear particular tones which correspond to particular colors, another may experience a particular taste when viewing a particular shape. In its most common form, each number or each letter of the alphabet will automatically elicit a specific color. In each case, there ...
  • Brain Structures To Functional Processes
    2,092 words
    This essay will discuss whether the specific human functions are confined to specific areas in the outer layer of the two hemispheres of the brain (cerebral cortex). The evidence and research methods employed to support or dispute this statement and current understanding of this subject will be discussed. A conclusion will summarise the material covered and offer a clear statement as to whether there is evidence of localisation of function in the cerebral cortex. The search for localisation of f...
