Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a nondegenerative, noncongenital insult to the brain from an external mechanical force, possibly leading to permanent or temporary impairment of cognitive, physical, and psychosocial functions, with an associated diminished or altered state of consciousness.

Traumatic brain injury occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. TBI may affect a person’s cognitive abilities, including learning and thinking skills, physical changes, changes in the person’s behavior.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Brain stimulation therapies can play a role in treating certain mental disorders. Brain stimulation therapies involve activating or inhibiting the brain directly with electricity. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that that relies on electromagnetic induction using an insulated coil placed over the scalp, focused on an area of the brain thought to play a role in mood regulation. TMS is a method used intreating certain mental disorders #depression #mood disorders.

How to Predict Pain

Pain is a strange phenomenon. How painful a particular injury is can differ from person to person, even if the wound is the same. In order to determine how painful the injury is, it should be important to know the interaction between psychology and physiology. The scientists were particularly interested in a type of brain wave called alpha waves. Alpha waves are more prominent when relaxing with closed eyes, and they are reduced with open eyes, when drowsy, and during sleep. Alpha wave frequency appeared to predict pain sensitivity.

Dementia is a disease of the Ependymal Layer: Novel theory from looking at cognitive impairment in Multiple Sclerosis

The intricacies of dementia are explored in relation to varied studies on brain atrophy in multiple sclerosis and used to delineate the primary pathology of the latter. The theory examines the high frequency of cognitive impairment (Jongen 2012) in Multiple Sclerosis and its early manifestation during the disease.  The fact that there is associated brain atrophy cannot be explained by the degree of damage to neurons.

Keynote speech on cognitive impairment in multiple sclerosis by Dr Philip A McMillan, NHS, UK. Neuropsychiatry 2018 is a world's biggest platform to gather experts from Neurological sciences.

Geriatric Neurology @ Neuropsychiatry 2018

Older individuals suffer with several problems like memoryloss due to their aging nervous tissues. Geriatric neurology deals with diagnosis, treatment & care of neurological conditions that affect older individuals. As the number of elderly in the population increases, there will be a concomitant increase in the prevalence of acute and chronic neurological disorders associated with advancing age.

Submit your abstract to share your insights and and skills to effectively care for the elderly with neurological disorders.

How To Spot A Brain Aneurysm:

As blood courses through your brain, that weakness allows the wall of the vessel to push outward, forming a bulge. Like an over-inflated balloon, that bulge can rupture, which allows blood to leak out into the surrounding brain tissue. But many aneurysms don't rupture.

Neurorehabilitation @ Neuropsychiatry 2018

Neurorehabilitation is the process of restoration of function for persons with disorders of the nervous system. This process involves strategies aimed at reducing impairments and disabilities, and ultimately improving participation and quality of life for persons with neurological disorders. Areas of functioning include mobility, activities of daily living, and cognitive and communicative abilities. Neurorehabilitative treatments promote restoration and reorganization of damage in the nervous system and facilitate compensatory and adaptive strategies to improve functioning.
