  • Learning Disabilities In The Classroom

    A person who speaks fluently and well-developed vocabulary tends to be more reliable. The non-verbal disorder is a huge inadequate awareness that caused these difficulties for students at school. Students who have trouble speaking their language are often labeled as “emotionally disturbed or behavior problems” because of their unexpected behavior. Students with weakened abilities to organize visual-spatial field or accommodate to new literature may be shown as a genetic disorder. Students who have NLD earlier in their development may continue a severe head injury, radiation treatment near their heads over a long period of time or had the brain tissues removed from their right hemisphere. Some theorist suggests that early damage occurs in the right cerebral hemisphere, which leaves to the left hemisphere are one of the major contributions that caused the NLD syndrome. Furthermore, children who have NLD should seek a family physician or a school psychologist to fix their child’s problems. In addition, Dr.Rourke has found the dysfunctions that are connected with NLD and said that “less apparent at the age 7 to 8 years . . . than at 10 to 14 years," and that they become "progressively more apparent (and more debilitating) as adulthood approaches." Dr.Rourke is implying that children who have NLD at a young age starts to grow progressively into their adulthood stage. I also viewed another article called Cognitive Disabilities by a group organization. During my research I…

    the brain with the other parts of the body. The brain directs the things we choose to do (like walking and talking) and the things our body does without thinking (like breathing). The brain is also in charge of our senses (sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell), memory, emotions, and personality. The three major parts of the brain control different activities: a. Cerebrum - The cerebrum is the largest part of the brain. It is at the top of the brain. It uses information from our senses to tell…

  • Psychological Brain Studies

    of the human brain, specifically the study of both the right and left hemispheres was conducted by Roger W. Sperry who is widely considered the father of this field, and Michael Gazzaniga. It is their specific research into patients who have had their Corpus Callosum removed, due to their suffering constant seizures, and how this severation…

  • The Human Brain: The Four Parts Of The Human Body

    The human brain is very fascinating. It has many parts and functions, which help us in our daily lives. The brain is one of the most important things we humans have. The human brain has four parts: Hindbrain, Midbrain, 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…

  • 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…

  • Unit 4 The Brain Analysis

    The brain controls everything from coordinating movements to constructing sentences and even simple things like breathing. The brain is supplied with oxygen to keep it alive by a network of blood vessels. Structure of the brain The brain is made up of 4 main parts and they are: ● The cerebral cortex, ● Limbic system, ● The cerebellum ● and the brain stem The cerebral cortex The cerebral cortex is split into two cerebral hemispheres (the left and right hemispheres). Sometimes…

  • Split-Brain Theory

    Introduction The human brain can be divided in terms of its structure as well as function. Structurally under the cranium of any human being exists a brain with two plainly visible parts, each about the size of a fist, known as the right and the left hemispheres of the cerebral cortex. Even though these two hemispheres appear identical in terms of structure, they perform distinct functions. Split-brain studies and cognitive research has indicated that the left hemisphere is associated with…

  • The Cerebrum

    The Cerebrum is the biggest part of the brain and is responsible for important brain functions such as thought and action. The Cerebrum is separated into two hemispheres, the right and the left hemisphere. It is divided into four different parts: the frontal lobe, the parietal lobe, the temporal lobe, and the occipital lobe. (See annexe 1) The first lobe is the frontal lobe; the frontal lobe controls your creativity, your problem solving, your judgement, your intellect, your attention, your…

  • 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…
