Transcript of THE BRAIN

Brain Damage
Brain damage is an injury that causes the
destruction
or
deterioration
of brain cells.
1.5 million people
have a type of brain damage every year, and about
50,000 die
from it.
There are seven types of brain damage
. (
info on next slide
)
The
Two

Sides!

There are two sides of your brain. These two sides are called
hemispheres.

If you are said to be "right-brained", you are best at creativity. Right-brained things include music, creativity, recognizing faces, color, intuition, expressing emotions and reading emotions.

If you are more "left-brained" you are logical. Left- brained things involve, language, logic, numbers, reasoning and critical thinking.

However, some subjects, such as math, are strongest when the two sides of your brain work together.
What's even more interesting is that the right brain controls what the left side of your body does, sees and feels. Also, your left brain controls the right side of your body.
How are the two sides of your brain connected? There is a thick bundle of nerves at the bottom of your brain that connects them. This bundle is called the
corpus collosm.

brain

inside the skull or
damage

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR BRAIN
Egyptians, in the mummyfying procces, used speacial tools to take the brain out through a dead person's nose!!!

Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)
The brain is also the major organ of the nervous system, the system that controls your movement.
If the left hemisphere of your brain is damaged and you are unable to speak, you might be able to sing!
Brain Foods
-- whole grains
-- oily fish
-- blueberries
-- tomatoes
-- vitamins
-- pumpkin seeds
-- broccoli
-- sage
-- nuts
*
Nutrition
is important to our mental & cognitive abilities.
*
Exercise
is a great way to keep your brain healthy.
BRAIN INJURIES
ABI happens at
cellular level
.It is most associated with
pressure on the brain
.It could
come from a
tumor
,or as a result from

neurological

illness in
case of a stroke
.
The weight of your brain is about 3 pounds!
Your brain stops growing at age 18!
A human experiences about 70,000 thoughts each day!
When some patients had their corpus collosm cut, they were unable to name objects related to the
right brain. This proves that language is controlled by your left brain.
The brain is made up of about 75% of water!

make or become worse
Lack of sleep may hurt the abilities to create new memories!

*
Stay mentally active by challenging your
brain power
!! Work too easy makes your brain slack off (crossword puzzles & brain teasers would be good work).
If your brain loses blood for 8 to 10 seconds, you will lose consciousness!

In conclusion, the brain is VERY important, almost like the computer of our body! We need to keep it safe and healthy by eating good food and excercising. The brain is not only important but very interesting, too!

These are the parts of the brain.
OTHER STUFF
The frontal lobe controls speech, movement,&personality.
The parietal lobe controls touch, temperature, pressure, & pain.
The occipital lobe controls anylyzing & interpreting visual info.
The temporal lobe controls recognition of loudness, sounds, & thier tones.
The brain stem controls automatic things(sleeping, breathing, etc).
The cerebellum controls balance & posture, and is involved with the accuracy & timing of skilled movements.

Nerves & Neurons
thinkquest.org
Neurons are the nervous system's specialized cells. The main structure is: a cell body, an axon, and
lots
of dentrites. Neurons transmit electrical impulses to and from the central system. The cell body contains a nucleus. The dentrites recieve signals, that's why there's so many.
tumor=
www.enchantedlearning.com
an abnormal mass of tissue that arises from normal tissue cells and serves no useful purpose in the body
axon=
a long and single nerve-cell process that usually conducts impulses away from the cell body
impulse=
www.wiseGEEK.com
There are a few nerves in the brain, but all are called the cranial nerves. Here they are: the olfactory nerve is speacial because it is constantly regenerating. This nerve controls your sense of smell. The optic nerve carrys light impulses, and the ocutomotor nerve and the trochlear nerve control certain eye movements. The abducens nerve also has something to do with the eye.
a wave of excitation transmitted through tissues and nerve fibers and muscles that result in physiological activity or inhibition
dendrites=
any of the usually branching extensions of a neuron over which impulses travel toward the cell body

The Ingredients For...
BRAINjuice!
BRAINjuice
Carrots

The four ingredients in our drink will keep your memory sharp, your mood pleasant and your energy high!
Not only good for your eyes but
also good for your brain. They
contain luteolin, which has
found to reduce memory loss
as you get older and inflama-
tion in the brain.
Bananas
High in antioxidants, dopamine and seratonin. Dopamine boosts attention and memory. Seratonin lifts your mood and controls your appetite.
Apples
Prevent the loss of a very important
neurotransmitter called acetylcholine
which is crucial for memory and brain
health.
Blueberries
And what they do.
Blueberries contain
pigments called anthocyanins
that boost brain functions,
reduces stress from the
brain, and may reduce
age-related memory loss.

Congnenital brain damage
congnenital brain damage results from
genetics
and
trauma.
Diffuse Axonal injury (DAI)
DAI can cause damage to many parts of the
brain.
Both

sides
of the brain would be damaged and the
nerves
would stretch throught the brain.
Mild
Mild brain injury may be
temporary
.
Causes
:headaches,confusion,memory problems,
and nausea
Moderate
Moderate is where the
symptoms
last
longer
Severe
If your brain damage is severe it will be a
life changing problem
.You might have
cognitive behavior
and
phisical disabilities
.
