  • Tourette's Syndrome Summary

    increased gamma band activity in the thalamus promoted by deep brain stimulation and inhibition or minimization of tics and/or other symptoms of Tourette’s in both short-term and long-term evaluations. To clarify, tics are involuntary physical or verbal reactions that begin during early childhood and are characteristic of Tourette’s Syndrome. This research consisted of five patients who received Neurospace™ neurostimulator implants in the centromedian nucleus of the thalamus allowing researchers…

  • Motor, Sensory, And Interneurons And Three Types Of The Brain

    system contains the hippocampus, thalamus, hypothalamus, and amygdala. The hippocampus is located in the temporal lobes on each side and is involved with making memories, neurogenisis takes place here. The thalamus is a mass of cell bodies located within each cerebral hemisphere and processes and interegates sensory informations except for smell and relays sensory information to cerebral cortex. They’re like traffic cops. The hypothalamus is located right below the thalamus and is the size of a…

  • Central Nervous System Essay

    Forebrain made up of a pair of large cerebral hemispheres also known as the telecephalon and a set of structures sit deep in the cerebellum called diencephalon. Diencephalon includes the thalamus, lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN), hypothalamus, and posterior lobe of the pituitary. Thalamus allows all the sensory inputs (except for olfactory nerve) to go through to the somatic sensory regions of the cerebral cortex. LGN allows the signals to go from the optic nerve to process and going…

MacLean used the name “limbic system” to describe Broca's limbic lobe and related subcortical nuclei as the combined neural substrate for emotion.[1] He was also pivotal in the proposal and definition of the…
