Functions The brain is your body’s central processor, responsible for the critical functions that keep you alive: such as controlling your heart rate, breathing, and immune system. The brain also gets incoming
Most people face self esteem problems at different levels. At some point in life people face this problem without realizing it. In the essay The Trouble with Self-Esteem written by Lauren Slater starts of by demonstrating a test. Self esteem test that determines whether you have a high self-esteem or low self-esteem. The question to be answered however is; what is the value and meaning of self-esteem? The trouble with self-esteem is that not everyone approaches it properly, taking a test or doing research based of a certain group of people is not the way to do so.
The Medulla controls the heartbeat and breathing. This assists the Another sensory and motor involved part of the brain is the Thalamus. Although this part of the brain sends messages to the cerebral cortex. When driving visual and auditory information is being sent.
The part of the brain that I picked is the Cerebellum. The Cerebellum is the part of the brain at the back of the skull in the vertebrates. Its function is to coordinate and regulate muscular activity. The Cerebellum is located behind the top part of the brain stem, it is where the spinal cord meets the brain, the Cerebellum is made of two hemispheres. The Cerebellum receives information from the sensory systems, the spinal cord, and other different parts of the brain, and then it also regulates motor movements. The Cerebellum coordinates voluntary movements such as posture, balance, coordination, and speech, and then it results in smooth and balanced muscular activity.
Traumatic Brain Injury Every single day we are susceptible to traumatic brain injury. Traumatic brain injury (or TBI) can be caused by everyday activities such as driving to school or participating in sports. TBI occurs when an external force causes trauma to the brain. This includes getting struck in the
The brain contains millions of nerve cells and about a hundred structures that control different parts of our bodies. The brain controls our movement, language comprehension, sight, hearing, it determines our personality, as well as behavior. The complexities of the brain often bring about problems that lead to cognitive and physical decline. As we
Our brain is most complex organ system in our body. This three pound of tissue creates the main nerve center of the body. It controls our all body function, body movement, thought, and our behavior. Many of people do not know about the how a brain works? The left part of the brain controls our right side of the body and right side of brain part controls our left side of the body part. Our brain uses 20% of the total oxygen and blood in the body so it is required oxygen and nutrition from the blood for work properly. The lake of oxygen in the brain for 5 to 10-minute results in permanent brain damage or occurs a stroke. A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of our brain is interrupted or severely reduced. A stroke is one of the diseases
I was second grader and departing for America, my friend and I were saying goodbye in front of the airport. He shouted to me in a way that everyone could hea r, just before I got inside, that I have to get into the airplane barefooted. I put my shoes in my carriage as he said. I didn't realize single thing before the man next to me burst into laughter and told me that there is no such rule as being barefooted. My friend always was my best friend as we went to the same school, same church and lived in the same apartment. However, my expectation for the airplane was satisfied as they had a television and I was overwhelmed by its enormous size. Unfortunately, I ate some meats and potatoes in the airplane despite my mom's commandment, "don't eat
The Human Brain The brain is the most important part of the body, it controls everything we do. It is one of the most complex organs of the body. It has many parts, including these main bits: The cortex is the outer layer of the brain and it controls thinking and movement. The brain stem/spinal cord is between the spine and the rest of the brain and the controls our sleep and breathing. The cerebellum is in the middle and back of the brain and controls balance and coordination. There are also several lobes which are important to the brain as well. The frontal lobe is responsible for problem solving and judgement and the temporal lobe is responsible for memory and hearing. The parietal lobe is responsible for processing sensory information from
Before I took the Self-Esteem survey quiz, I expected my results to fairly low. I knew I never had the best esteem, but once I started to fill in and circle the true or false answers, I was surprised to see some of my answers were more positive than others!
The brain is vital to the functioning of every human being. After studying the brain for a whole semester, it made me realize how important it is to keep the brain health and protected. God made human being very complex, and trying to understand how each organ relates to each other has been a challenge for anyone in the medical field. Each year, new techniques are discovered as to what, where and how the human brain operates. There are discoveries made in the medical field everyday that were not known before. The brain is the part of the central nervous system that encompasses the cranium that consist of the forebrain (prosencephalon), the midbrain (mesencephalon) and the hindbrain (rhombencephalon). If the brain is damage due to an acquired brain injury, it can
An 84-year-old white male presented with symptomatic anemia secondary to a GI bleed. The patient states he was feeling weak, and his wife reported that he was positive for melena. The patient was admitted to the hospital and received two units of packed red blood cells. Once the patient’s anemia
The brain stem is one of the most essential parts of the human brain. This part of the brain connects to the spinal cord and consists of the midbrain, pons, and medulla oblongata. The brain stem controls functions vital to life in any human such as breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, swallowing, and the flow of messages from the brain to the rest of
One of the most vital aspect of having a successful partnership with the community is being able to measure the impact of the Blossoming Self-esteem project on the girls. This project has a component of multiple topics that will be addressed each month. Furthermore, we have five months, which gives us five topics to discuss with the girls. All the topics will follow under categories of career paths, relationships, and self agency. We will be evaluating change throughout the program. The program evaluation is starting off with a grand survey that includes questions on all topics, then breaks down into two surveys per month/topic, and closing the program off with one last final survey, following the Blossoming Self-esteem Summer Summit.
Brain stem regulates alertness, arousal, breathing, blood pressure, digestion, heart rate and other autonomic functions. (Lawrence, 2006) It also contains most of the 12 cranial nerves responsible for sensory and motor functions of the face and special senses, meaning hearing, vision, taste, smell and
