Four Major Lober
Diencephalon - Homeostasis
Brain stem - Relay Station
Limic System - Memory and Emotion
These are 2 flowcharts that I made to help me understand the basic blood supply to the brain and drainage via the venous sinus system. They don't go into huge detail, but rather give a general overview and schematic. Enjoy :P
The stroke syndromes. most common is middle cerebral artery.
Loc=loss of consciousness
These are intact in MCA..only in ACA memory is affected hence the bulb is crossed out.
Divide the body in 4 boxes representing upper and lower limbs and each box is further divided into S (sensory) M (Motor).
The dark shading means this is affected more. Dotted shading means affected to a lesser extent.
Note how sensory is intact (not shaded) in webers and benedict .
The red dot in brain = site of infarction
The 2 circles represent visual field. ( intact in ACA).
Only ACA has urinary incontinence (shown by leaking urine)
Note. For Benedict. .Ataxia is shown by shading under the legs on one side (although legs are represented by boxes the stick lines as legs is only used to represent ataxia).
tip..whenever faced with an infarct question draw the man and symbols shown and shade accordingly. Will definitely help diagnose the case quickly.
Your spinal column or ‘backbone’ is made up of 24 vertebrae: seven in your neck (cervical spine), 12 in your midback (thoracic spine) and 5 in your lower back (lumbar spine). Your spinal cord, made up of billions of nerves, lies inside your spinal column, protected on all sides by bone. Your spinal cordís nerves branch out through openings between your vertebrae and connect to your internal organs, muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons and other body parts. This connection is vital for your well-being.
The vertebral subluxation complex, an often painless spinal distortion, can irritate or damage your spinal nerves, interfere with your brain-body connection and affect your spine, nerves, discs, muscles, organs and overall health. Doctors of chiropractic specialize in the detection and correction of the vertebral subluxation complex – restoring the lines of communication within your body and improving your overall body function, healing potential and well-being.
