The Brain

Control center of the body

Intro of the human brain

The gelatinous mass of grey matter (Nerve cells) and white matter (Axon cells) work together to help us interpret the world. Different parts (lobes) of the brain are in charge of certain jobs such as hearing, seeing and various motor functions. Humans have 4 lobes Frontal, Parietal, Temporal and Occipital. The seemingly effortless communication between all 4 lobes gives us the ability to live everyday life. Now imagine the effects of having a miscommunication or total inhibition of one or more lobe(s).

Temporal Lobe

The Temporal Lobe mainly revolves around hearing and selective listening. It receives sensory information such as sounds and speech from the ears. It is also key to being able to comprehend, or understand meaningful speech.

Trauma of the brain

Expect a difference in functionality in any corresponding injured brain part. for example expect having a hard time doing complex math problems if you have just received blunt trauma to the frontal lobe.

Concussed brain

Over half of all reported traumatic brain injuries are the result of an automobile accident. A traumatic brain injury can occur as a result of any force that penetrates or fractures the skull; areas which are susceptible during an auto accident.I n the case of an automobile accident the sheer force of the accident can cause the brain to collide against the internal hard bone of the skull. The reason why this can occur is that when a moving head comes to a quick stop, the brain continues in its movement, striking the interior of the skull. This can cause bruising of the brain (referred to as a contusion) and bleeding (brain hemorrhage) which may not be visible at the time of injury.
