Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder is a psychological disorder that causes frequent mood swings in the affected individuals. This disorder is mostly characterized by elevation in mood (mania) or depression. There are two types of Bipolar disorder: Bipolar Disorder I and Bipolar Disorder II. Bipolar Disorder I is characterized by recurring manic and depressive episodes every day for a week. Bipolar Disorder II is characterized by major depressive episode and one episode of hypomania. BD patients are often suicidal.

Brain Tumors

Uncontrolled cell division leads to tumor formation in brain and other parts of the body. Brain tumor can be caused by exposure to vinyl chloride or Epstein-Barr virus or ionizing radiation or due to neurofibromatosis. Few symptoms are headaches, seizures, vision problems, nausea, inability to balance motor functions etc.

Brain Aneurysm

A weak spot on a blood vessel that leads to an outward bulging of the arterial wall in the brain. This condition is more prevalent in females than in males and may cause hemorrhagic stroke when they rupture leading to brain damage and death. Symptoms are: Headache, Dilated pupil, Blurred or double vision, Pain above and behind eye, Weakness and numbness, Difficulty in speaking.

Brain Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy replaces and/or repairs dead or diseased cells. There are various types of Stem Cells: embryonic stem (ES) cells, induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, and adult or somatic stem cells. Stem cells may be used to treat brain degeneration, such as in Parkinson's, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, brain stroke and traumatic brain injury.

Childhood Trauma

Trauma experienced by a child before the age of six is defined as childhood trauma. This often leads to depression, anxiety and other psychological problems. Many criminal activities, reckless behavior in children and adults can be avoided if children are given proper counseling and treatment.

Stress Disorder

Stress Disorder leads to development of severe anxiety, dissociative and other symptoms that occurs after experiencing a traumatic situation. People with Stress Disorder have similar symptoms to those seen in post-traumatic stress disorder. Stress disorder may occur due to witnessing death, threat of serious injury to oneself or others and threat to the physical integrity to oneself or to others.

Blunt Trauma

Severe traumatic episode caused to the body or head with the sudden introduction of a blunt instrument with great force or during fall from a height or experienced during a car accident. Blunt trauma is fatal as it leads to internal injuries and bleeding. The severity of injuries dependent on the amount of kinetic energy transferred and the tissue to which the energy is transferred. Blunt trauma often leads to bruising, laceration and abrasions.

Mood Disorder

There are four basic forms of mood disorders: depression, cyclothymia (a mild form of bipolar disorder), seasonal affective disorder and mania. People with mood disorder have mood fluctuations. This affects their both their professional and personal life. Some people with depression may experience only one episode of major depression in a lifetime and most people go through multiple episodes.

Intellectual Disability

It is a neurodevelopmental disorder where intellectual and adaptive functioning is highly impaired. An individual with Intellectual Disability typically has an IQ score below 70. People with severe intellectual disability may experience seizures, mood disorders (anxiety, autism, etc.), motor skills impairment, vision problems, and/or hearing problems.

Manic Depression

Bipolar Disorder is otherwise known as manic depression. Individuals with manic depression experience depression and mania from time to time. They often lose interest in a former pleasurable activity. When in manic phase, individuals often have high self-esteem and are ebullient. Identifying the problem and changing lifestyle is one of the best ways to cope up with manic depression.

Brain Stroke

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is reduced. This deprives the brain of oxygen and nutrients, which causes the death of brain cells. A stroke may be caused due to a blocked artery (ischemic stroke) or due to the leaking or bursting of a blood vessel (hemorrhagic stroke). Thrombotic stroke occurs when a blood clot forms in arteries which leads to reduced supply of blood to the brain.

Brain Imaging

Brain imaging methods allow neuroscientists to see inside the living brain. These methods help neuroscientists to understand the relationships between specific areas of the brain and their functions, to locate the areas of the brain that are affected by neurological disorder and to develop new strategies to treat brain disorders. CT scan. MRI, fMRI, PET scan etc. are common brain imaging methods.

Encephalitis

Encephalitis is the inflammation of the brain. Viral infections are the most common cause of encephalitis. It has flu- like symptoms with headaches, confused thinking and in severe cases it can also be fatal. Antiviral, antibiotic, sedatives and steroid medicines can be taken to reduce the effect of the infection.

Coma

A prolonged state of unconsciousness is known as coma. A person is unresponsive to his or her environment during this time. The person cannot be awakened by any stimulation. Most common causes of coma are brain injury, brain stroke, brain swelling, blood sugar, brain infection, oxygen deprivation, seizures etc. Treatment of coma is different for different causes, if there is a brain infection, antibiotics are administered, Glucose is administered in an event of diabetic shock. Surgery may also be necessary to relieve the pressure on the brain due to swelling or to remove a tumor.

Hemangioma

A rubbery, bright red nodule of extra blood vessels in the skin is known as Hemangioma.It can occur anywhere on the body, commonly appears on the face, scalp, chest or back. Cavernous hemangiomas on the eyelid which can block vision is treated with lasers or steroid injections to shrink them. Small superficial hemangiomas often disappear on their own.

Hydrocephalus

Buildup of too much cerebrospinal fluid in the brain is known as hydrocephalus. Causes can include head injuries, strokes, infections, tumors, and bleeding in the brain and can occur at any age. Hydrocephalus can permanently damage the brain, leading to impaired physical and mental development. Treatment usually involves surgery.

Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy is a group of diseases that cause progressive weakness and loss of muscle mass. Mutations interfere with the production of proteins needed to form healthy muscle. Symptoms begin in childhood, primarily in boys. Some people who have muscular dystrophy eventually lose the ability to walk while some people may have trouble breathing or swallowing.

Seizures

A seizure is the physical change in behavior that occurs after an episode of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Sometimes it causes noticeable symptoms and sometimes it shows no symptoms at all. The symptoms of a severe seizure are often widely recognized, including violent shaking and loss of control. A seizure may be a one-time event, or may be a repeated event.

Brain Trauma

Traumatic brain injury occurs when an external mechanical force causes brain to function abnormally. Mild traumatic brain injury may cause temporary dysfunction of brain cells. More serious traumatic brain injury results in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding and other physical damage to the brain which results in long-term complications or death.

Parkinsonís Disease

Parkinson's is a chronic and progressive movement disorder. The symptoms continue and worsen over time. Parkinson’s involves the malfunction and death of vital nerve cells in the brain effecting the substantia nigra. Symptoms are : tremor of the hands, arms, legs, jaw and face, bradykinesia (slowness of movement), stiffness of the limbs and trunk and impaired balance and coordination.

* Unofficial 2014 Impact Factors established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 then, impact factor = Y/X
