Técnica com ultrassom

O glioblastoma é o tipo de tumor primário mais comum no cérebro, altamente agressivo e maligno. Pacientes com esse tipo de câncer geralmente são submetidos a ressecção seguida de radioterapia e quimioterapia. Apesar do tratamento, a sobrevida é de 12 a 18 meses a partir da data do diagnóstico. Novos tratamentos têm sido desenvolvidos e um deles tem se mostrado promissor. O estudo da referência aborda uma técnica que envolve a aplicação de ultrassom focal na região tumoral através do crânio intacto associada à aplicação de uma substância que sensibiliza as células para os efeitos prejudiciais do som. A terapia sonodinâmica representa uma grande promessa para o tratamento de cânceres que se espalharam para áreas sensíveis do corpo (metástases) e, em particular, do cérebro. 📑♒🧠Este tema será abordado no módulo Tratamento & Reabilitação do Cérebro da @mybrainuniversity

The human brain builds structures in 11 dimensions, discover scientists

 

 

 

 

 

The brain continues to surprise us with its magnificent complexity. Groundbreaking research that combines neuroscience with math tells us that our brain creates neural structures with up to 11 dimensions when it processes information. By “dimensions,” they mean abstract mathematical spaces, not other physical realms. Still, the researchers “found a world that we had never imagined,” said Henry Markram, director of the Blue Brain Project, which made the discovery.

YOUR BRAIN IS NOT FULLY DEVELOPED UNTIL AGE TWENTY-FIVE

We may like to assume that we are adults when we turn eighteen; however, the truth is our brain is still undergoing a significant amount of construction until our mid-twenties. Research has shown that the brain is not fully developed until a person reaches about the age of twenty-five. For males, full development can extend until the age of twenty-eight. What does this mean for you? If you are under twenty-five, this means every decision you make, every thought you have, every action you take, all the food you eat, the amount of sleep you get and everything else you do throughout your day has significant impact on your developing brain.

Mientras el ejercicio de baja intensidad acciona las redes cerebrales

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mientras el ejercicio de baja intensidad acciona las redes cerebrales asociadas al control cognitivo y al procesamiento de la atención, el ejercicio de alta intensidad activa principalmente las redes involucradas en el procesamiento emocional. Es la conclusión de un estudio reciente publicado en el periódico Brain Plasticity. Este puede ser el primer paso para una recomendación más precisa del ejercicio físico como factor de intervención sobre las funciones cerebrales.
