The cause of the brain cells dying and the deterioration of the connectors is not fully known. Vascular dementia is a form of dementia caused by damage to the brain through deprivation of oxygenated blood. Causes are preventable and include high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes and high cholesterol. Rarer forms of dementia are Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) and Biswanger’s disease. 1.2 Types of memory impairment Whilst long term memory loss is experienced, short term memory loss can cause more problems, although it is not the same in every case.
Since a stroke can affect your memory and walking ability I believe acetylcholine would be abnormal. The way this would impact on a person’s behavior, is due to the weakness of on one side of the body from the stroke. Most stroke victims lose their memory or part of
There could be some damage to the central nervous system but not very severe or the symptoms that Nick exhibits would be more severe. C. Diabetic neuropathies damage peripheral nerves. Which component of the reflex arc is most likely to be damaged in Nick’s situation? The component of the reflex arc that is most likely to be damaged in Nick’s situation would begin at the sensory neuron. Stimuli is still triggering the receptor but the information from the sensory neuron doesn’t continue the arc to the integrating centers to the motor neurons to the effectors which causes the absence of a reflex.
Gaining greater understanding how the limbic system and other areas of the brain operate is essential to identifying potential obstructions that disallow the normal flow of chemicals/communication within the brain, which may cause a person to become depressed. Additionally, hormones levels are another biological factor which can lead to depression. Imbalances of cortical, for example, such as an excess amount or uneven distribution over a period of time have been noticed in depressed patients (Sahelian,
I understand that some want to blame law enforcement for the deaths of many individuals that have died as a result of what is being called Excited Delirium. However, I feel there is enough research to prove it is very plausible that police brutality is not the problem but most likely Excited Delirium. The simple fact that there is medical data from autopsies referring to the dopamine levels and the acidotic state from suspected ED deaths should be enough for serious consideration. The most important thing at this time is education of Excited Delirium for anyone who may have to deal with this type of issue. Law enforcement needs to learn how to recognize the symptoms and be taught proper restraining techniques to help prevent death.
Diagnosis Difficulties Unit Fourteen Merit One In this essay I shall discuss the difficulties which can arise when the diagnosis of stroke and diabetes is undertaken and how the signs and symptoms to which they could be showing can help to diagnose their illnesses more effectively and efficiently.

Researchers believe that Alzheimer's disease may be the result of one or all of the following: D. a slow virus or a biochemical imbalance in the brain E. an auto immune reaction (the body attacks itself) 3. Symptoms of Alzheimer's disease A. Usually a person with Alzheimer's disease becomes gradually more forgetful, and his or her personality and ability to think are also affected.

Suicide Clinton C Pickett Liberty University Abstract This paper introduces the definition of a crisis. A crisis can be many things to many different people; the loss of a house to a fire, the death of a grandparent or the loss of a job all qualify as a crisis; though not all may quality as a crisis to a single individual. Suicide is the most difficult and complicated grievance experienced across the world in every country and every culture. Statistics imply that in the US, one is more likely to die by suicide than to be shot (James, 2008). Dealing with those who have attempted suicide and those who are grieving the loss of a love one who has committed suicide present a delicate dilemma that is multi-faceted can be infinitely complex.
An ischemic stroke is usually characterized by a reduction or obstruction of blood supply to the brain due to blocked blood vessels caused by atherosclerosis or a blood clot. Up to twelve percent of ischemic strokes often cause death within thirty days and is among the largest health burdens in developed countries. It is worth noting that the epidemiology of stroke has been changing because of several factors, with the most important being an ageing population, as well as advancements in the treatment of the condition. Stroke prevalence is projected to increase globally as the population of individuals aged above sixty-five years augments (Ovbiagele et al., 2013, p. 2363). Ovbiagele et al.
