Hey, do you guys know what kind of updates were made in BB this year? Doing the resit and I am from year 1. Did your mentor mentioned something? Like in Task 5, it is written, that they added the visual system, but I cannot find anything in the literature. Thanks for your help in advance <3
oh for the summaries in general although pinel is my fav book I add information from the other two books, as well as Carter's 'The human brain book' but the latter is really not detailed and is more of a 'human brain for dummies'
Robert, a 25 year old Hispanic male, is 230 lbs overweight. Because of health reasons, Robert has tried exercising and dieting but the most amount of weight he's lost is 5-10 lbs. Even when he's lost weight, he always gains it back and some more. Robert lives at home with supportive parents who have tried to help him loose weight throughout his entire life, as this has been an issue for Robert since childhood. Robert feels frustrated and strongly believes that there must be something wrong with his body because no one else in his family is overweight. Robert claims he's always hungry and whenever he has tried fasting, he feels very anxious and ends up eating more.
Nope. Parkinson's symptoms are caused by the degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in the Substantia nigra and the nigro-striatal pathway, both of which are part of the midbrain.
The document is a bit imprecise, but correct.
Edit: Just saw that some books count the Substantia nigra as part of the Basal Ganglia (which is also a part of the midbrain), so seems like technically we're all correct ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
