  • Cerebral Cortex Case Study

    Anatomy of cerebral cortex: Brain is most complex organ in human body. The ability of brain for its functioning normally is manifestation of various activities it takes participation in various activities of day to day life, being it hidden from the view or perceptible, like walking, smelling, thinking, laughing, speaking, and hearing. These manifestations are results of very coordinated and complex electrical and chemical activity within and between the cells those makes up our brain. Abnormal functions in the brain may cause hampering the normal functioning of a person. So, it’s very important to understand the basic formation of a human brain to demystify the epileptic seizures. The human brain constitutes three main structures: the cerebrum or cerebral hemispheres, the brain stem, and the cerebellum. Cerebrum, the largest part of brain and also recognisable one, is the one most involved in epilepsy. Cerebral Cortex, also known as grey area, is neuron-rich outer layer of cerebrum. Underlaying Cerebral Cortex has…

  • The Four Roles And Functions Of The Human Brain

    Forebrain, and Cerebral Cortex. With each part comes its functions. For hindbrain the parts are medulla, cerebellum, and pons. For forebrain the functions are the limbic system, thalamus, hypothalamus, basal ganglia, and cerebral cortex. And last the cerebral cortex, the sections are occipital lobe, temporal lobe, parietal lobe, and frontal lobe. The hindbrain is located at the rear of the skull. Hindbrain has three parts: medulla, cerebellum, and pons. The medulla controls breathing,…

  • Effects Of Cerebral Palsy

    Cerebral Palsy is a disorder of the nervous system that is caused by abnormalities and damage to one or more specific areas of the brain. This damage occurs before, during, or immediately after birth when a child’s brain is developing. Research has determined what kind of brain and central nervous system damage occurs when someone has cerebral palsy as well as the symptoms that correlate with each injury and the effective treatment options to manage this chronic condition. Muscle coordination…

  • Dr. Van Essen's Human Connectome Project?

    David C. Van Essen is one of many connectome projects across the globe. Dr. Van Essen engineered the human connectome project from a previous study two decades ago where he and his collaborators from California Institute of Technology mapped the connections of the visual areas of the Macaque monkey. Inspired by his Macaque monkey research, Dr. Van Essen transferred his academic curiosity to the human brain and its trillion synapses. After receiving two grants from the National Institute of…

  • Compare And Contrast Graded Potentials And Action Potential

    The cerebral cortex has deep grooves called fissures that separate some regions. The longitudinal fissure separates the left cerebral hemisphere from the right cerebral hemisphere. On the other hand, the transverse cerebral fissure separates the cerebral hemispheres from the cerebellum. The cerebral cortex contains three kinds of functional areas: Motor areas, sensory areas, and association areas. The motor areas control voluntary movements. The sensory areas are the regions where we have…

  • Evolution Of The Human Brain Essay

    Even though there are other structures in the brain that were selected for greater growth and complexity, it is noted that evolution has impacted the change in the cerebral cortex physiology and morphology and in consequence has influenced intelligence the most(Cherniak 2012). Now that it is understood what evolved, looking at what led to the evolution is just as important. Scientist theorize that the evolution of the brain was due to selective pressures of the physical and/or social…

  • The Importance Of Emotional Behavior In The Classroom

    It. situated between the cerebral cortex and midbrain. Its functions include relaying sensory and motor signals to the cerebral cortex. When designing lesson we need to focus more on engaging activities that encourage students to participate in discussions. For example, inviting students to share their ideas turns classroom discussion away from simple facts to a more active and motivational participation. These activities will keep students be alert and ready to learn. (Sylwester, n.d.) 7)…

  • Walking Movement Essay

    cord, muscles, reflexes and receptors. The act of walking begins from brain and spinal cord which is the planning on how to walk. More precisely, it starts from the cerebral cortex. Cerebral cortex is the region of decision-making and it initiates voluntary response, in this case, the act of walking. Basal ganglia are also responsible for voluntary locomotion. It requires the knowledge of the body’s position in space (where am I walking to) and what movement should be made (should I walk) and…

  • Athlete Performance Essay

    couple of hours a day recovered faster (The Effect Music Has On The Brain). In particular the patients seemed to have better verbal memory and attention span (The Effect Music Has On The Brain). Due to the improved memory and attention span, it becomes obvious that music has fantastic healing characteristics. An amazing piece of research from 1998 says that music can get rid of seizures once and for all (The Effect Music Has On The Brain). In order to reduce the signals that cause a seizure ,…
