Acute cerebellar ataxia

Acute cerebellar ataxia causes and symptoms

Acute cerebellar ataxia (ACA) is a condition that occurs when the cerebellum becomes inflamed or damaged. The particular cerebellum is the region of the brain liable for controlling gait and muscle tissue coordination.   The term ataxia refers to a lack of fine control of voluntary movements. Acute means the ataxia comes on quickly, on […]

Brain Stem Cell Treatment: New Age Brain Surgery?

Brain surgery is a delicate matter. It’s always a risky procedure. It’s a scary thing going into the operating room knowing that someone is going to be touching your brain.   Soon, hopefully, they won’t have to do that anymore. And, we’re sure you’ll feel a lot happier about going into surgery, knowing that there’ll […]

meninges layers

Meninges Layers & Cerebra-Spinal Fluid

The meninges are three layers of protective tissue called the hard tire, the arachnoid fabric and the bulb surrounding the neuraxis. The brain and spinal cord tones are continuous, connected by magnum foramen.   Meninges layers Dura Mater The dura mater is the highest layer of the meninges layers. Its name means “hard mother” in […]

Parasympathetic nervous system function

Parasympathetic nervous system functions & structure

The parasympathetic nervous system function is responsible for stimulating “rest and digestion. The feeding and reproduction” activities that occur when the body is resting, especially after eating, including sexual arousal, drooling, tearing (tears), urination and defecation.   The nerve fibers of the parasympathetic nervous system arise from the central nervous system. Specific nerves include several […]

pons function

Pons function & Roles | (Major) function of the pons

Our brain is absolutely unbelievable and ultimately makes human. All parts of the brain are extremely important, but Pons stands out a bit more than some other parts. Check out this guide to learn everything about pons function. Pons function Temporal lobe: this lobe is associated with hearing, speech, memory and also has a part […]

midbrain function

Midbrain function & Structures | Major function midbrain

The midbrain is a part of the brainstem connecting the upper brain and forebrains. Many nerves run through the midbrains that connect the brain to the cerebellum and other posterior brain structures.   The midbrain function is to support the movement, as well as visual and auditory processing. Damage to some areas of the midbrain […]

brainstem function

Brainstem function Location & structures| Main function

The brain stem is the area of the brain that connects the brain to the spinal cord. It consists of the midbrain, medulla, and bridge. Motor and sensory neurons travel through the brainstem to allow signals to be transmitted between the brain and the spinal cord. Most cranial nerves are in the brainstem. Read below […]

avm brain

AVM brain | Major Symptoms of AVM brain | What is an AVM

The brain arteriovenous malformation (AVM brain) is a tangle of abnormal blood vessels that connect the arteries and veins in the brain. Arteries are responsible for getting oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the brain. The veins carry oxygen-free blood back to the lungs and heart. The AVM brain disturbs this important process.     […]

arteriovenous malformation brain

Arteriovenous malformation brain (Major) Causes & Risk,Diagnosed

Your cardiovascular system consists of the heart and blood vessels. There are three kinds of blood vessels in the circulatory system: veins, capillaries, and arteries. Arteriovenous malformation defects (AVM) are defects in the blood vessels of the circulatory system. Read below for arteriovenous malformation brain   A developmental defect is an abnormal combination of veins […]

Wallenberg syndrome

Wallenberg syndrome (Major) Symptoms of Wallenberg syndrome

The Wallenberg syndrome is a rare condition in which the infarction or stroke occurs in the lateral cortex. The lateral core is part of the brainstem. Oxidized blood does not reach the part of the brain when the arteries that lead to it are blocked. Due to this blockage, a stroke may occur. This condition […]
