QUESTION: Explain to Brenda using a flow-chart how is the image of her stepfather is macroscopically transduced to her brain. What effects each part of the limbic system has in this process. What is processed in each part of the final cortexes destination and what is the result of this process overall.
PROMPT: Brenda, is an old friend by now, she comes over for a couple of tea and she tells you a beat of her story and what is happening in her life. She was raised in a single parent home since she was born, her mom was only 16 years old, and her dad 17 and he just left after 6 months of her pregnancy. Brenda's mother worked hard in 3 jobs and Brenda was the eldest of another 3 siblings from her mom second relationship with a very abusive man. Brenda cared for her siblings from diapers to homework since she was 8 years old. They moved a lot to get away from “dad” in and out of jail. Brenda grew up, and despite of all her unstable child years she wanted to do different for her children. She finished high school, she went to Community College while holding two jobs to pay the bills and help her mom. But she also married early at 18 years old, her husband is current deployed as a marine and she, as you know, have 3 children and is pregnant with the 4th child while holding two jobs and going to school.
Effects each part of the limbic system has in this process are the limbic system is the part of the brain involved in our behavioural ,emotional responses.
The thalamus, hypothalamus production of important hormones and regulation of thirst, hunger, mood and basal ganglia (reward processing, habit formation, movement and learning) are involved in the actions the limbic system, but two major structures are the hippocampus, the amygdala.
Hippocampus resembles the shape of a curvy seahorse and essentially the memory centre of our brains. Our episodic memories are formed and catalogued to be filed away in long-term storage across other parts of cerebral cortex.
Connections made in the hippocampus help us associate memories with various senses.The amygdala name refers to its almond-like shape, located right next to the hippocampus, the left and right amygdalas play a central role in our emotional responses, including feelings like pleasure, fear, anxiety and anger,the amygdala also attaches emotional content to our memories, and so plays an important role in determining how robustly those memories are stored. Memories that have strong emotional meaning tend to stick, so in Brenda case memories are stored in amygdala part of the brain.
Result of this overall process isBehaviour can be affected by events in previous generations which have been passed on through a form of genetic memory in new generation so in case of Brenda image of her stepfather is macroscopically transduced to her brain.
