Brain's function involves receiving information from the rest of the body, interpreting that information, and then guiding the body's response to it. Types of input the brain interprets include odors, light, sounds, and pain. The brain also helps perform vital operations such as breathing, maintaining blood pressure, and releasing hormones (chemical signals that control certain cells and organs).The brain is divided into sections that include the cerebrum, the cerebellum, the diencephalon, and the brainstem.

Bipolar Affective 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. Bipolar II disorder is not a milder form of bipolar I disorder, but a separate diagnosis. While the manic episodes of bipolar I disorder can be severe and dangerous, individuals with bipolar II disorder can be depressed for longer periods, which can cause significant impairment. BD patients are often suicidal.

Brain mapping is to understand the relationship between the structure and function of the human brain. Scientists seek to gain knowledge of the physical processes that underlie human sensation, attention awareness and cognition. These results are immediately applicable to surgical intervention, to the design of medical interventions and to the treatment of psychological and psychiatric disorders.Brain mapping attempts to relate the brain's structure to its function, or finding what parts give us certain abilities. For example, what aspect of our brain allows us to be creative or logical? This is called localization of function.In mapping brain functions, scientists use imaging to watch the brain working on various tasks.

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. A primary brain tumor is one that originates in the brain, and not all primary brain tumors are cancerous; benign tumors are not aggressive. Malignant primary brain tumors are cancers that originate in the brain, typically grow faster than benign tumors, and aggressively invade surrounding tissue. Few symptoms are headaches, seizures, vision problems, nausea, inability to balance motor functions etc.

A weak spot on a blood vessel that leads to an outward bulging of the arterial wall in the brain is known as aneurysm. 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 aneurysms are often discovered when they rupture, causing bleeding into the brain or the space closely surrounding the brain called the subarachnoid space, causing a subarachnoid hemorrhage. Subarachnoid hemorrhage from a ruptured brain aneurysm can lead to a hemorrhagic stroke, brain damage and death.

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. They could be used in other ways, in particular as a supporter of diseased cells and a controlling or adjusting influence within the patient’s central nervous system. 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.

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. Major depression is the most common mood disorder. This debilitating illness causes mental anguish and physical ailments. It often prevents normal daily function. Some people with depression may experience only one episode of major depression in a lifetime and most people go through multiple episodes.

Intellectual Disability is a neurodevelopmental disorder where intellectual and adaptive functioning is highly impaired. An individual with Intellectual Disability typically has an IQ score below 70. Intellectual functioning, refers to general mental capacity, such as learning, reasoning, problem solving, and so on. People with severe intellectual disability may experience seizures, mood disorders (anxiety, autism, etc.), motor skills impairment, vision problems, and/or hearing problems. People with intellectual disabilities can and do learn new skills, but they learn them more slowly.

Bipolar Disorder is otherwise known as Manic Despondency. 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. Because both depression and bipolar disorder share this commonality, somewhere between 10 to 25 percent of people with bipolar disorder are first mistakenly diagnosed with only depression. It’s only when the professional learns more about the person and their history do they later discover episodes of either mania or hypomania.

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. How a person is affected by their stroke depends on where the stroke occurs in the brain and how much the brain is damaged.People who have larger strokes may be permanently paralyzed on one side of their body or lose their ability to speak. Some people recover completely from strokes, but more than 2/3 of survivors will have some type of disability.

Brain Scan 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.
Certain types of brain scans use a special dye, called contrast, to help areas of interest show up better. Contrast dye is usually injected into the body before the scan starts. With the exception of those requiring an injection of contrast dye, scans are relatively painless—like getting a picture taken. The hardest part for some people is to sit or lie still for a long time.

Encephalitis is the inflammation of the brain. Viral infections are the most common cause of encephalitis. Encephalitis can cause flu-like symptoms, such as a fever or severe headache. It can also cause confused thinking, seizures, or problems with senses or movement. Severe cases of encephalitis, while relatively rare, can be life-threatening. Because the course of any single case of encephalitis can be unpredictable, it's important to get a timely diagnosis and treatment.
There are also several types of encephalitis spread by mosquitoes, such as Japanese encephalitis, and ticks, such as tick-borne encephalitis. Encephalitis can also be caused by rabies. Antiviral, antibiotic, sedatives and steroid medicines can be taken to reduce the effect of the infection.

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.

A convulsion or 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.
