Facts Of Human Brain

General Physician, Gorakhpur
Facts Of Human Brain

The human brain is the most complex and least understood part of the human anatomy. There may be a lot we don’t know, but here are a few interesting facts that we’ve got covered.

Nerve impulses to and from the brain travel as fast as 170 miles per hour. Ever wonder how you can react so fast to things around you or why that stubbed toe hurts right away? it’s due to the super-speedy movement of nerve impulses from your brain to the rest of your body and vice versa, bringing reactions at the speed of a high powered luxury sports car.

The brain operates on the same amount of power as 10-watt light bulb. The cartoon image of a light bulb over your head when a great thought occurs isn’t too far off the mark. Your brain generates as much energy as a small light bulb even when you’re sleeping.

The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information as the encyclopedia britannica. Or any other encyclopedia for that matter. Scientists have yet to settle on a definitive amount, but the storage capacity of the brain in electronic terms is thought to be between 3 or even 1, 000 terabytes. The national archives of britain, containing over 900 years of history, only takes up 70 terabytes, making your brain’s memory power pretty darn impressive.

Your brain uses 20% of the oxygen that enters your bloodstream. The brain only makes up about 2% of our body mass, yet consumes more oxygen than any other organ in the body, making it extremely susceptible to damage related to oxygen deprivation. So breathe deep to keep your brain happy and swimming in oxygenated cells.

The brain is much more active at night than during the day. Logically, you would think that all the moving around, complicated calculations and tasks and general interaction we do on a daily basis during our working hours would take a lot more brain power than, say, lying in bed. Turns out, the opposite is true. When you turn off your brain turns on. Scientists don’t yet know why this is but you can thank the hard work of your brain while you sleep for all those pleasant dreams.

Scientists say the higher your i. q. The more you dream. While this may be true, don’t take it as a sign you’re mentally lacking if you can’t recall your dreams. Most of us don’t remember many of our dreams and the average length of most dreams is only 2-3 seconds–barely long enough to register.

Neurons continue to grow throughout human life. For years scientists and doctors thought that brain and neural tissue couldn’t grow or regenerate. While it doesn’t act in the same manner as tissues in many other parts of the body, neurons can and do grow throughout your life, adding a whole new dimension to the study of the brain and the illnesses that affect it.

Information travels at different speeds within different types of neurons. Not all neurons are the same. There are a few different types within the body and transmission along these different kinds can be as slow as 0.5 meters/sec or as fast as 120 meters/sec.

The brain itself cannot feel pain. While the brain might be the pain center when you cut your finger or burn yourself, the brain itself does not have pain receptors and cannot feel pain. That doesn’t mean your head can’t hurt. The brain is surrounded by loads of tissues, nerves and blood vessels that are plenty receptive to pain and can give you a pounding headache.

80% of the brain is water. Your brain isn’t the firm, gray mass you’ve seen on tv. Living brain tissue is a squishy, pink and jelly-like organ thanks to the loads of blood and high water content of the tissue. So the next time you’re feeling dehydrated get a drink to keep your brain hydrated.

My daughter is 2 month old. She had hemangioma other scalp (head). Many doctors advice that it will start to gone automatically after 1 year of her age. Is there any medicine or treatment without surgery? Is it curable within one or two month (5 month of her age). Please help me.

Treatment for infantile hemangiomas should be individualized depending upon the size, location, presence of complications, potential for scarring, the age of the patient, the rate of growth or involution at the time of evaluation, the potential risks and benefits of treatment. Treatment is usually required for complicated hemangiomas that may interfere with a vital structure or function and for lesions at increased risk of ulceration, scarring, and disfigurement. Masterly active nonintervention for uncomplicated hemangiomas that are not disfiguring. Active nonintervention requires regular monitoring of the lesion. Some have tried topical beta blocker like timol for anxious parents, who respond but stopping the treatment may have some rebound effect. Oral propranolol is the first-line agent for the treatment of complicated hemangiomas with the potential to impair function or cause disfigurement eg, periorbital hemangiomas. Systemic steroids, vincristine, and interferon alfa are alternative agents for aggressive hemangiomas but are rarely needed since the advent of propranolol. Children with periorbital hemangiomas should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist. Oral propranolol in addition to dressings and appropriate painkillers for the treatment of ulcerated hemangiomas that may cause permanent disfigurement, interfere with daily life activities, or do not respond to dressings. If you want to discuss this further, feel free to contact me directly.

What is the advised test and dosage for vitamin d deficiency for treatment of sleep apnea.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Dear , first I would like to know who suggested to you that vitamin d is treatment for sleep apnea? sleep apnea can be either central sleep apnea or obstructive sleep apnea. Central sleep apnea is a very rare condition also known as ondine's curse in which the person loses his ability to breathe as soon as one falls asleep. Obstructive sleep apnea (osa) however is very common and is diagnosed as multiple episodes of short duration breathing cessation during sleep. Common manifestations are snoring, incomplete sensation of rest after sleep, excessive daytime sleepiness. Osa is multifactorial and needs to be diagnosed first with sleep studies and then treatment started. There may be some association with vitamin d deficiency as are almost all diseases nowadays. But vitamin d is definitely not a treatment for osa.

Dear Lybrate User, *The ayurvedic herbs ashwagandha and brahmi have traditionally been used to balance the nervous system. They have been shown to reduce reactivity to stressful events and may raise the threshold at which the headaches you experience are triggered *Following a Pitta-pacifying diet and lifestyle may help you reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. If you have have localized neck pain with no other symptoms like radiating upper limb pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc and with no other associated constitutional symptoms like evening rise in temperature, loss of weight, excessive sweating at night etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your neck while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. We will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of neck and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.
