Entorhinal cortex (EC) – Important memory center in the brain.The EC forms the main input to the hippocampus and is responsible for the pre-processing (familiarity) of the input signals.Dopamine is produced in several areas of the brain, including the substantia nigra.EEG topography – using a large number of electrodes to triangulate the source of the electrical activity.Without proper functioning of REM sleep processes, psychosis occurs.The reason for malfunction would dictate the duration and type of psychosis. Too much emotional data overloading REM, poor foundation memories needed for sorting.Possible overloading reasons: Glossary: Acetylcholine (Ach) – the neurotransmitter in all autonomic ganglia. It contains granule cells, which project to the pyramidal cells, but mostly to the interneurons of the CA3 subfield of the hippocampus.
The airplanes represent many scattered emotions and non-concrete information that is spread throughout the perceptual areas of the brain.Similar potentials can be elicited in waking by intense auditory stimulation that elicit orienting Scalp electrodes – picks up the activity of large groups of neurons Sensory gating – a process by which the brain adjusts its response to stimuli. When one stimulus is presented, there is a response.But when it is followed by a second stimulus soon after, the response to the second stimulus is blunted.Theta rhythms – are one of several characteristic electroencephalogram waveforms associated with various sleep and wakefulness states.This entry was posted on Wednesday, August 15th, 2007 at am and is filed under antipsychotics, dreams, emotions, health, mental health, mental illness, neurobiology, nightmares, psychiatrists, psychiatry, REM, research, Schizophrenia, Sleep, stress.
