Scientific documentary: Disorders of mental health, brain trauma, stress and anxiety, a documentary about the brain
Dealing with mental health disorders is one of the biggest challenges facing governments around the world. Diseases such as
Alzheimer's and depression rob the individual and society of mental capital and well-being. One in four people suffer from a mental health disorder. Disorders such as Alzheimer's, schizophrenia, depression, mania, etc., affect our cognitive functioning. And as a result, it impacts the way we function in our homes and at work. Therefore, it is imperative to detect these disorders early and treat them early.
There are two types of cognition. There is a cold or rational cognition and a hot cognition. Cold cognition helps us make the most of our decisions in our daily lives. Hot cognition helps us make social decisions and emotional decisions.
There are key areas of the brain that respond to stress and cause anxiety. The thalamus is the area of the brain that responds to images and sounds. The thalamus breaks down the things we see by size, shape and color and then sends a signal to the cerebral cortex. This gives meaning to the things we see and allows us to be aware of what we are seeing or hearing. The prefrontal cortex is very important to stop the anxiety response after a threat disappeared. The section of the brain that is responsible for emotion is the amygdala. The primary function of the amygdala is to trigger the response to fear. The nucleus of the bed of the striaterminals precedes the response to fear; The locus ceruleus receives a signal from the amygdala and causes rapid heartbeat, sweating, dilation of the pupil and other classic anxiety responses. The hippocampus is the part of the brain that stores memory or emotional baggage derived from stressful situations. Stress, anxiety and fear are activated through the senses. Fear is an essential and very useful answer; while anxiety is something completely irrational.
You think with your brain and ideas do not float in the air. So, how do you get ideas from neurons? Because you think with your brain, every idea you have is physical and is given by a neural circuit in the brain. Many of those neural circuits are fixed for life, and so are the things you learn early in life and very often metaphorical ideas. So, if you do not have a neural circuit to understand an idea, you will not understand it at all. The classic view of what reason is really has failed. And that vision says that all reason is conscious, but in fact, 98% is unconscious. This is because the brain works in parallel and reason, or consciousness, works linearly. Many things are happening inside your brain and you do not even really understand why they are there. People think mainly about frames and metaphors. Metaphors are not in language, but are in thought.
