    Brain-Imaging Study Links Cannabinoid Receptors to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - Current diagnostics for PTSD rely on subjective measures and patient recall, making it difficult to accurately diagnose the condition or discern its symptoms from those of depression and anxiety. The PTSD brain image is credited to the NIMH and shows the areas of the brain associated with fear and stress. The image is not associated with the research.

Regions of the brain associated with stress and PTSD.

The large white object shown here is a mucous retension cyst.

In this image you can clearly see the optic chiasm.

The olfactory system where your sense of smell comes from (not mine, because my olfactory system is purely aesthetic since I suffer from anosmia or a lack of smell) and your optic nerve. The Optic chiasm is clearly fisible as well. In case it isn't clear, this is looking up at the bottom of the brain and the person's eyes would be at the top of the image.

Another example of how vision is transmitted.

Fig 1. A, Midline sagittal T1-weighted image demonstrates absence of the optic chiasm (arrow). The globes, optic nerves, and optic tracts are intact, but the optic chiasm is not present. B, Axial T2-weighted image at the level of the suprasellar cistern confirms absence of the optic chiasm (arrow). OH, how I wish there was more information on this picture.

This image does a good job at showing the visual systems in the brain. Notice the red and green sections of the eye and optic nerves and how the green - or left - side of both eyes tracks to the left hemisphere of the brain and the red - or right - side of both eyes tracks to the right hemisphere of the brain.

Another comparison of a healthy brain next to Alzheimers. Notice the enlarged ventriles (fluid filled spaces) in the Alzheimer's brain.

This image compares healthy neurons to those of someone with Alzheimer's. Notice the tangles in the neurons. Also, the cloudy stuff is plaques that build up between neurons.

A normal brain (right) compared to a brain affected by Alzheimer's Disease.

A healthy brain compared to one with Multiple Sclerosis.

The article for this image discusses musical hallucinations, a fairly common occurance in elderly people, particularly those who have experienced dramatic hearing loss. This is NOT a form of dementia although many who experience it fear they're losing their mind and often don't report it.

Music stimulates specific regions of the brain responsible for language, memory and motor control.

B. Sagittal MRI demonstrating corpus callosotomy and fronto-basal disconnection. The corpus callosum which is in the center of the brain and connects the left and right hemispheres is typically white in an MRI. Here it has been removed and is dark grey. This individual is no longer one person, but two, because their left and right hemispheres operate independently of one another. This kind of surgury is usually reserved for people with extreme epilepsy.

A. Coronal MRI demonstrating central resection and temporal lobectomy. What this means is that they only removed part of one hemisphere, the temporal love. The website's description does not explain why this was necessary.

An image of the brain of a 7 year old girl who has undergone a hemispherectomy at age 3. The description in the photo will tell you the rest. *The part of the hemisphere that they didn't remove (bottom of image) is the cerebellum, which is associated with motor control (coordination, not voluntary movement).

myelin sheaths, a covering over some of your brain's neurons, helps to speed information being passed. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects this coating and causes serious problems for those who have it.

parts of a neuron.

By tracking how often journals in neurology, psychology, and molecular and cell biology cited one another, researchers identified a period in 2004-5 when their ideas merged into the field of neuroscience.
