The Zombie Apocalypse
Transcript of The Zombie Apocalypse
There have been many reports of individuals being infected by a “zombie” virus and these reports are increasing everyday. Unfortunately, this rabies-like disease is spreading very quickly and we can confirm that a “zombie apocalypse” has begun
The mission of the CDC is to keep mankind informed on the apocalypse so that we can defeat these zombies.
What Areas of The Brain Does The Zombie Virus Affect?
How Do The Diseased Areas of The Brain Influence The Behavior of Infected Individuals?
There are eight characteristics that a zombie exhibits. These qualities of a zombie are due to inactive parts of the brain.
What instruments should be used to diagnose the infected areas of the brains?
Electroencephalograph (EEG)- A machine used to record the electrical activity of large portions of the brain
Computerzied Axial Tomography (CT)- used to study points of injury and damage in the brain
Positron Emission Tomography (PET)- used to determine which brain areas are active when performing certain tasks
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)- a measuring technique used to study brain structure and actvity
The Zombie Apocalypse
By: Ashley Douglas
Bought to you by the CDC
Characteristic Part of Brain Affected
Diminished Language Skills
Little Reaction To Pain
Addiction To Flesh
Never Ending Hunger
Inactive Frontal Cortex
Damage or inactive Cerebellum
Both Hippocampi are inactive
Damage To Broca's and Wenicke's area
Inactive Somatosensory or inactive cingulate cortex and insula
Inactivity of The Parietal Lobe
Release of dopamine in the brain
Damage to the hypothalamus
Prefrontal Cortex- censor's thoughts
Cerebellum- Helps control balance, posture and voluntary motions
Hippocampi- Involve with storing short and long term memories
Broca's and Wernicke's Area- Helps comprehend and produce language
Somatosensory cortex- Responsible for physical perceptions
Parietal Lobe- Information Processing
Hypothalamus- Controls Basic Human Functions
About the parts of the brain
How will these machines help us?
EEG's will help us determine which neurons in a zombie's brain are functioning
CT's will help us determine which part of a zombie's brain are inactive
PET's will let us observe what parts of the brain are functioning when they perform certain tasks
MRI's will gives us a picture of the structure of a zombie's brain and measure activity in the brain.
