It may offer reduced memory loss and a reduction in hallucinations. Medication can have a calming effect and helps enable sleep. It can help reduce the likeliness of the person concerned to worry and reduce their pain. Along with this, medication can also reduce aggression and restlessness. Some of the negative effects are things such as nausea and stomach pains, restlessness and tiredness.
Extreme use of alcohol and other drugs can damage the brain and can sometimes cause hallucinations or other symptoms of a mental disorder but is only usually caused by excessive use of alcohol and drugs. Another cause for a mental disorder is infection. Infection can lead to the rise of mental illnesses and schizophrenia has been linked to flu. Another physical cause of a mental disorder is the biochemistry including neurotransmitters and hormones. Neurotransmitters are known to have an impact on behaviour such as high levels of nor adrenaline and dopamine are seen when a depressed mood is evident e.g.
Experimental Research PSY/285 February 17, 2013 Experimental Research Pharmaceutical Research: Sleeping Aids There are many different kinds of sleeping aids that can help someone fall asleep today. Insomnia is when a person has a hard time falling asleep, staying asleep, or a disturbance in the quality of sleep a person gets that will make them feel they are not well rested when they do wake. Insomnia is more common today then we think, about 10% of adults suffer from severe insomnia. Lack of sleep may cause someone to have no motivation, mood swings, and not be able to function to their full potential. Insomnia has also been known to cause depression, anxiety, and stress, which in turn can cause other health problems.
Drug addiction is a brain disease because of repeated use and abuse of drugs changes the brain. The brain imaging studies show changes in the brain that are critical to judgment, decision making, and behavior control. The preponderance of research indicates neurological effects of repeated drug use. Drug addiction also alters brain pleasure centers, so that normal happiness requires higher and more frequent drugs. Drugs are chemicals; they work in the brain by tapping into the brain’s communication system and interfering with the way nerve cells normally send, receive, and process information.
Treatments today consist of therapy that involves many different methods. One of the most popular treatments is medication that will change behavior and help slow the memory loss. On the other side of the same coin these drugs can create sleep problems where the patient becomes restless and unable to sleep at night. Some of the drugs prescribed are Cholinesterase inhibitors that help with cognitive symptoms. These work by preventing the breakdown of a chemical messenger in the brain called acetylcholine.
If these neurotransmitters are out of balance, the chemical messages cannot get through the brain properly. This can alter the way the brain reacts in certain situations, causing anxiety. Some parts of our brain chemistry are also involved in generalized anxiety disorder. Most notably the brains of people with generalized anxiety disorder have abnormal levels of serotonin and nor-epinephrine. The most popular treatments for generalized anxiety disorder work to correct this.
In my Psychology book in one chapter it talked about the alcohol impairment and how it can then create bad judgment. Because alcohol acts to depress the reticular activating system, several things occur. The altering mechanism is depressed such that a person does not become aware of potentially hazardous or dangerous situations that the sensory functions detect. The sensory functions themselves are deteriorated and may not be supplying complete or correct information to the brain. A person's motor of functions is impaired; yet, because of alcohol's depressant effect that person will feel less inhibited and more self confident about themselves.
The Victorian environment may increase risk of moving residents due to lighting, flooring or lack of space & storage may be very limited for equipment. * Falling from heights when cleaning, got to make sure they aint a way off falling when cleaning which will cause harm to you and/or residents. Resident: * It’s on a main road and people who have dementia could forget that and could end up walking there, and putting their self at risk of getting hurt. * Windows, if they are left open or not got a safety lock on, a resident could fall out of it and hurt themselves or others. * Poor fitted bed rails can lead to asphyxiation, and residents can shake them and make them dislodge the rail.
For this reason people with epilepsy should make sure to get enough sleep and should try to stay on a regular sleep schedule as much as possible. For some people, light flashing at a certain speed or flicker of a computer monitor can trigger a seizure. This problem is called photosensitive epilepsy. Smoking cigarettes acts on receptors for the excitatory neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the brain, which increases neuronal firing. Seizures are not triggered by sexual activity "thank god", except in very rare
The reason why those who exercise live, because they are not getting fat over time as someone would be by just sitting at the couch all day. If you are obese you have more physical and possibly metal problems than a normal weight person and the physical problems are mostly severe and can cause premature death. Just by exercising you can avoid all these horrible diseases and early death. Studies show that exercising improves memory in older people. In conclusion exercising is a proven way to decrease the risk of all these medical conditions and they should be taken action with other factors as
