Keywords: convergent functional genomics; brain; blood; bipolar; mood; biomarkers. Why are we taxpayers paying for research that is clearly a total waste of money when there is a desperate need for funding for good quality prevention research? For routine clinical practice, this knowledge of disease specific patterns of regional metabolic activity in neurodegenerative brain diseases can be a valuable aid in the differential diagnosis of individual patients, especially at an early disease stage.

In some cases of bacterial meningitis, the bacteria may spread to the meninges from a severe head trauma or a local infection, such as a serious ear infection (otitis media) or nasal sinus infection (sinusitis). Does having a brain disease mean that people who are addicted no longer have any responsibility for their behavior or that they are simply victims of their own genetics and brain chemistry? Alzheimer's disease: For unclear reasons, nerves in certain brain areas degenerate, causing progressive loss of memory and mental function, and changes in behavior and personality.

Coconut oil can provide these people with an alternative �fuel� that can prevent cell death and restore brain functioning. Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative disease of the brain found in athletes (and others) with a history of repetitive brain trauma, including symptomatic concussions as well as asymptomatic subconcussive hits to the head. Only a minority of novices, however, will develop the compulsion to keep taking the drug at great personal cost, a behavior that defines addiction."

Plaques are clumps of misfolded proteins that gradually accumulate into sticky, brain-clogging gunk that kills neurons and robs people of their memories and other mental faculties. A description of this altered state is that it is dreamlike, that it stimulates memory and the ability to think abstract, and that it has self-therapeutic qualities. The finding may be useful to researchers seeking ways to detect and treat Alzheimer's before it causes irreversible brain damage. The doctors ability to diagnose Alzheimer's disease has improved over the years, but final diagnosis can be confirmed only at autopsy.

Functional neuroimaging techniques have been applied in different dystonic disorders including primary generalized dystonia, mainly DYT1 and DYT6 and dopa-responsive dystonia, as well as focal dystonic syndromes such as torticollis, writer’s cramp and blepharospasm. Medial temporal lobe atrophy on MRI predicts dementia in patients with mild cognitive impairment. In addition, NADPH plays an important role in the synthesis of glutathione, a compound that is essential to the body’s defense against damage from oxidative stress.

The cerebellum coordinates movement and is involved in learned rote movements. The thalamus carries messages from the sensory organs like the eyes, ears, nose, and fingers to the cortex. Brain Research publishes papers reporting interdisciplinary investigations of nervous system structure and function that are of general interest to the international community of neuroscientists. A 1999 paper in the European Journal of Neurology found that it was the combination of inflexible opinions and impulsive outbursts that resulted in his strategic blunders.
