Broken head

All this does not lead to an immediate improvement of the state, but smoothly helps the brain to restore the remaining disturbed systems. So if a person was prescribed antidepressants of this type, then they should not be abandoned in two weeks, because they did not help, they would still help.
Many other neurotransmitters are involved in depression and, more importantly, many different brain structures. The cortex is not able to adequately assess the surrounding reality (and believes that everything is bad, not having sufficient objective grounds), the hippocampus does not remember anything good, the almond-shaped body is afraid and does not rejoice at anything, the adjacent core does not reward with a sense of joy our good actions like eating ice cream, the hypothalamus allows any kind of disruption in the formation of the desire to eat, sleep or have sex and so on. Most of the information about violations of the work of these structures has so far been obtained on animals and has not yet led to the creation of fundamentally new drugs approved for widespread use.
Depression can develop “just like that, out of the blue,” but more often it is associated with stress, especially uncontrollable. There is nothing surprising in the fact that the activity of the endocrine system during depression most of all resembles a furious reaction to stress. Constantly increased activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. Violation of the daily rhythms of cortisol production. Impaired feedback (with the introduction of drugs that mimic under cortisol, its synthesis does not decrease, although it should). All this stimulates scientists to develop new hypotheses that assign a key role in the development of depression to the pernicious effects of constantly high levels of cortisol on the work of the brain, and the first attempts are already being made to treat depression by blocking the receptors for cortisol in the nervous system. So far, they mainly use mifepristone, which has actually been developed as a drug for medical abortion, simply acts simultaneously on the progesterone receptors and on the cortisol receptors because of their similar spatial organization. The results of its use in the treatment of depression are very controversial, but it may be that more advanced drugs will be developed based on the same principle of action. Or on some other thing: during depression, so many different things happen to the brain that you can approach almost from any side, simply developing and testing any new drug is awfully long, expensive and difficult, so we are cured by chance with open reuptake inhibitors serotonin for over 50 years.
Well, of course, depression is not necessarily treated with pills. The brain and psyche are so closely intertwined that you can influence one thing and change something else. There is psychotherapy that stimulates the cerebral cortex to look for the good in life, and thanks to it our caring brain begins to adjust its neurotransmitters to the new task and gradually returns to normal. It is with psychotherapy that treatment usually begins, and medications are prescribed in addition to it, if a person wants to return to a normal state of happiness a couple of months faster.

Deviations in the size of the skull can speak of microcephaly, macrocephaly and hydrocephalus, which indicate the pathology of the central nervous system. At birth, the head circumference is 34–36 cm. By the year, this size increases by 10 cm. At 6 months, the head circumference is 43 cm. For every missing month, it takes 1.5 cm from 43 cm, for each

The main routes of infection are aerogenic and oral.
  8. Head injury
    MECHANISMS. PATHOPHYSIOLOGY The main causes of the most severe head and neck injuries are accidents during fast driving and falling. In these situations, nerve tissue is damaged by cranial injury under the action of a primary (direct damage to brain tissue) or a secondary mechanism (rupture of blood vessels and an increase in intracranial pressure [ICP]). Tremendous power
  9. MUSCLE HEADS
    The musculature of the head is divided into facial (mimic) and chewing. The first lies in the area of ​​the facial cranium, the second - • partly in the same area, partly in the region of the cerebral cranial region. Facial muscles. Circular muscle of the mouth — m. The orbicularis oris (Fig. 153-6) forms the basis of the lips, is covered on the outside with skin, with which it coalesces tightly, and on the inside by the mucous membrane. Is a sphincter

  14. SKELETON HEAD
    The skeleton of the head is represented by bones, which, tightly joined by sutures, protect the brain and the senses from mechanical influences. It gives support to the face, the initial parts of the respiratory and digestive systems. The skull (cranium) is divided into two sections - the brain and facial. The bones of the skull form a cavity for the brain and partly cavities for the sense organs. The bones of the facial skull
