Research Essay On Brain And Head Injuries - 944 words
Head and brain injuries occur when you least expect them to. The seriousness can range from just a bump to a mental illness, paralysis, and even death. The minor bumps and bruises often have no long term effects, but more serious injuries often have long term or even permanent side effects. These serious head injuries often lead to a psychological disorder from either the injury itself or the aftermath of the injury (Lehr). To understand the way an injury to the head or brain would occur, one must understand the biology of the brain, and the areas that would be affected. The frontal lobe is the most anterior and it is right under the forehead. It is almost always injured because of its large ...

Vietnam - 1,099 words
far worse than any battle they fought while in Vietnam. No one seemed to fully understand what these men had went through.

It took almost another century to demonstrate the problematic nature of some of Cantor's thinking (Cohen completed Godel's work in 1963). But continuity can be finite and the connection is, most times, misleading rather than illuminating. Intuition tells us that the world is continuous and contiguous. This seems to be a state of things which is devoid of characteristics other than its very existence. And yet, whenever we direct the microscope ...
