DOI: 6/21/2014. The patient is a 52-year-old right-handed female technician who sustained a work-related injury to when metal paper holder sprung out and hit her. She did not lose consciousness but was disoriented and confused. Based on the latest medical report dated 02/27/16, the patient reports that after the injury, she had headaches on the right side of the head and had tinnitus almost right away. She developed blurry vision the next day, nausea disruptions to balance and hearing changes on the right side.
Ms. V. M is a 33 y/o female presented at Howard University Hospital psychiatric unit with symptoms of depression, mania, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, eating disorders, denies destructibility, irresponsibility, grandiosity, flight of ideas, and non-compliance with medication. She was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder of hearing voices “bizarre behavior at a group home”. However, Ms. V.M has eleventh grade education, no kids, watches tmz for fun and she is unemployed. She endorses that she doesn’t need any special education. Moreover, she can respond to a command; but her verbal expression is characterized by 1-2 word responses and in a very limited initiation.
PRODUCT LIABILITY ON GENERAL MOTORS Product liability is defined as a law in which the manufacturer or seller of a product can be held responsible for providing the customer with defective products that causes injury or undesirable side effects to the consumer. The manufacturer is responsible for the causes of defect or danger caused by the products they sell, hence the product must meet the ordinary expectations of the consumer. There are three types of product liability claims: 1. Manufacturing defect: this type of claim is due to defect in manufacturing process or some error with the workmanship.
In this video Dr. Vilayanur Ramachandran explains how the brain works and he began investigation about the “phantom limb syndrome”. Describe each disorder in detail, including symptoms/ disabilities and identify the brain areas/pathways associated with each disorder. Derek Steen had a motorcycle accident thirteen years ago, and he lost his left arm. Dr. Ramachandran was testing him Derek on his arm that no longer exist.
Because people who have phantom limb pain complain of a constant pain many health practitioners have attempted surgery based upon the premise that it is a nerve issue; however, surgery to fix the pain is unsuccessful. Ramachandran came up with the concept that the somatosensory homunculus on the right side of the brain has the representation of the face next to the hand on the cortex. Because the hand is no longer present, there is no stimulus coming from the hand to the somatosensory cortex. The cortex wants stimulation from the hand therefore the face encompasses the hand section of the somatosensory cortex and begins to activate the hand when the face has a stimulus. This apparent reorganization of the individual’s somatosensory cortex
If I were to tell the truth (which I try to make it a habit to do), I would assert that I spent the last two days considering our class conversation without formulating much in terms of coherent impressions or judgments. Nor did I conclude what idea to pluck from my notebook and my mind to address here. I’m torn between Peter’s statement that “trauma is the ineffable,” that “it is not reliable” and Naomi’s insight that we—all of us—make choice in life and in so doing, close doors on other opportunities. Perhaps the two are connected in some way, and I hope to do this in this construction.
Infants who suffer from this condition often display a number of signs, including having weakness, loss of feeling or lacking reflexes in their affected arms. In some cases, infants with Erb’s Palsy can move their fingers, but not their upper arm or shoulder on the affected side. Often, their impacted arm is bent inward towards their bodies. What causes Erb’s Palsy?
Capgras Delusion is a is a disorder in which the sufferer feels as if a close family member, such as a parent, spouse, sibling, or pet, has been replaced by an identical imposter. There can be many causes for capgras delusion, but many scientists believe it is simply the failure of normal brain recognition processes, which can be caused by stroke, overdose, epilepsy, or many other causes. However. other scientists believe that it is caused by the damage of the right side of the brain. Both of these causes have been tested and proven that these could very well cause people to have capgras delusion.
(1991) reported two patients GD and VA from whom they argued for a separation between an apperceptive prosopagnosia and an associative type of the condition. GD performed better on tests involving memory for famous faces compared to perceptual tasks. On the other hand, VA had the reverse deficit; he performed more poorly on memory tasks than perceptual tasks. VA 's case can be explained similarly to LH: perceptual processing was reasonably unimpaired, so VA 's difficulty with faces can be considered as an associative deficit. GD, however, had a perceptual problem which means the facial deficit may be caused by perceptual
These designs vary depending upon the intended use of the hand. A variety of different actuation methods have been used. Previous robotic arm designs have focused on the mechanical issues of the construction and operation of the prosthesis. Most prostheses are controlled using methods that are not intuitive, such as using the contraction of muscles of the opposite arm. No project has been identified that investigates the feedback control of prostheses from the body’s neural network, which is a more natural control.
The disruption may manifest as aphasia. There are four major aphasia syndromes, namely Broca’s aphasia, Conduction aphasia, Wernicke’s aphasia and Anomic aphasia. These aphasia syndromes have different characteristics and causes. In this paper the four accepted types of aphasia are described and their aetiology and characteristics are illustrated.
Overcorrection is a punishment method which may be helpful with adult aphasia patients. The process involved to reduce the unwanted behaviour need a person to correct the environmental consequences of an inappropriate act and should be followed by the right form of act (Goldfarb, 2006). In his research paper, he did mention about Foxx and Azrin (1973) experiments on some procedures were taken to stop self-stimulatory behaviour in patients with developmental delay (DD) and ASD. Even though the outcome was not completely stop the behaviour but overall it was a positive trend.
