This research has greatly benefited our understanding of brain functions. By identifying causes, cures can be made, which will allow for better treatment of the disorder. Testing specific areas of the brain is the only way to determine biological causes of depression. The limbic system, for example, regulates emotions, physical and sexual drives, and response to stress (The Limbic System, 2013). 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.
In addition, researchers should avoid citing new references in the Discussion (Pryczak, 2008). The author of tis research cited new research on EFI scores that had not been previously cited. In research articles, the authors should discuss specific implications regarding the discoveries in research (Pryczak, 2008). The researchers state “FT may prove effective in the future because it moves to the heart of the matter for some clients. Deep hurts borne out of unfair treatment seem to play a part in substance use and abuse,” (Lin, 2004).
MS research paper http://www.nationalmssociety.org/index.aspx what is MS? Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.
Although epoetin alfa has helped with end stage renal disease (ESRD) anemia significantly, there continue to be patients with ESRD who have anemia despite the use of epoetin alfa. This paper will address the administration of ascorbic acid and its effectiveness in increasing hemoglobin results in patients who are not responding to epoetin alfa use alone and will also discuss the adverse effects found in the addition of ascorbic acid. This paper will also summarize the research study used to obtain the information and discuss its significance in nursing. Background of Study The questions the researcher asked when researching this topic were. 1.
Today researchers view depression as a set of symptoms which are widely variable and unlike a single disease are a body of dissimilar elements (heterogeneous) having distinct pathophysiologies and causes( Nestler et al., 2002). In other words most researchers view depression as a complicated condition requiring a bio-psycho-social consideration. Someone looking at depression from the neuroscience perspective would be interested in how brain and body chemistry might play a role in depression as they facilitate sensory experiences, memories, and emotions (Myers, 2012). Researchers looking at depression from this perspective have evidenced through the use of Functional MRI scans that sensory experiences can alter brain activity creating a pattern comparable to the patterns found in patients experiencing depressed moods. Other related studies showed that during periods of depressed moods brain activity slowed considerably; while MRI scans showed that the size of the frontal lobes of severely depressed people were seven percent less than the norm (Myers, 2010).
There are parents who view that it is unnecessary and not safe for your child to be vaccinated and there are the parents who believe you should get your children vaccinated to make sure they stay healthy and won’t get a deadly disease. My viewpoint on this topic is also kind of sensitive because my almost 5 year old son has been tested for autism and it is hard to research autism without coming up on the opinions that the vaccinations will cause autism. I still stand by my decision to vaccinate my son and still went on with vaccination my second son. My viewpoint is even if it is proven that the vaccinations “cause” autism my child cannot die from being autistic. Whereas if my child gets one of the viruses or diseases from not being vaccinated it can be fatal to not only my child but spread to other children who are not vaccinated.
Understanding Lupus (Systemic Lupus Erythematous) Takeia Foxx December 4th, 2012 EDU 100 Ms. O Lupus also called Systemic Lupus Erythematous, or SLE may not have a cure, but it’s a highly treatable condition. People who are affected by Lupus go through many complications on an everyday basis. Not only, do the patients feel pain and the family suffer as well. Lupus can be very detrimental to one’s health. Lupus medications can help lower long-term risk and keep symptoms under control.
She speculated that inflammation that occurs when a person is depressed may be a factor for dementia.Many certain proteins found in brain of a peron who is depressed may increase the risk of dementia.It is very important to remember that risk factor is something that put you on risk. Its increasing your chances to develop illness but it doesn’t mean that you will develop dementia as many people with depression never get dementia. A new sudy was published in July 2014 in the same journal give us more light on the problem. The report says that depression is a risk factor for dementia and people who have symptoms of depression have problems with clear thinking and memory. This study shows there is link between dementia and depression but doesn't exactly says if there is prove cause -and -effect relationship between them both.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Abstract The purpose of this paper is to discuss the demyelinating disease known as Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It will establish a detailed description, causes and risk factors associated with the disease, epidemiology, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and the prognosis of this condition. There will be an exploration into the details of MS and how it came to be today that radiologists rely so heavily on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for establishing an accurate diagnosis. This paper also offers a look at the lack of understanding regarding this disease and demonstrates how we still do not know everything about MS or even how it chooses its host. Multiple sclerosis is a condition that can be challenging to diagnose
However, the discussion provides an indication that the main hypothesis of this article is that Borrelia burgdorferi can create the symptoms generally associated with Lyme disease by way of bacterial byproducts that can negatively impact the host’s tissues, rather than the actual virulence of Borrelia burgdorferi. As such, the authors also shows that expression of Lyme disease symptoms in a patient could be due to such byproducts and not necessarily because of such virulence
