|Enviroment and Neuro Development|
|NeuroDevelopment study neuroscience and biology basics to describes the mechanisms
by which nervous systems grows and connect from embryonic development and throughout life.
NeuroDevelopment al processes starts from stem cell that grows to axons and neurons
which are finally thought to underlie learning and memory. |
The life gives experiences and events that produce neural activity and sensory experience. This events will create new synapses, as well as synaptic plasticity, which is responsible for the connection of the neural circuits. NeuroDevelopment is a training process that enhances the brain performance just like exercising keeps the body in healthy condition. A brain retraing program can enhance mental fitness which promotes longevity, health, and peak performance.
NeuroDevelopment allows us the ability to maximize and use our intellectual, physical, and emotional strengths simultaneously. It accelerates the brain power in every single daily tasks such as talking, working, studying, and sports become easier to do and handle.
NeuroDevelopment also study the relationships that exist between the development of the nervous system and human conduct and behaviour both in normal and pathological conditions.
A qEEG is a brain map used for NeuroDevelopment evaluation and gives clear picture of how the individual's brain is working in order to to increase its natural capacity by training specific neuropathways.
Neurological imbalances dectectes in the brain processing must be corrected trhought exercises and neurotherapy techniques.
Humans misuse our brain potential but it can be increased to experience more creativity, watching less TV and having better grades.
|NeuroDevelopment al Effects and Environmental Factors|
|What are NeuroDevelopment al effects? Impacts on the brain and nervous system which can affect physiological and cognitive development and can result in mental retardation, motor disabilities, behavioral disorders, learning impairment, delayed motor development, and sensory defects.|
|Why are we concerned? Damage to the brain or nervous system in utero or during childhood can result in life- Long disabilities. Exposures to some environmental toxins are known to cause permanent damage to a child's nervous system.|
|What causes these effects? Known or suspected causes of brain and nervous system disorders are exposure to chemicals and heavy metals including pesticides, lead, methylmercury, therapeutic drugs and food additives. Other chemical classes suspected of developmental neurotoxicity include antimitotics, polyhalogenated hydrocarbons, psychoactive drugs, solvents and vitamins.|
|How large is the problem? Four to eight percent of children born in the U.S. each year exhibit anatomical and/or functional deficits relating to brain and nervous system injury. An estimated one out of ten school-age children suffer from some type of functional deficit.|
|Who is at risk? the fetus, the infant and the child are especially vulnerable because their developing nervous system is more sensitive to toxins, such as lead and certain solvents and insecticides. Adults, with more developed nervous systems, are not as vulnerable to harm when exposed to many substances posing a risk to children.|
|How do we identify and study suspected neurotoxins and
their risk to children? Animal model studies can be
used to help predict human outcomes of exposure. The
nature and extent of neurotoxic effects are often
dependent on the timing of exposure. One of the periods
when a human is most vulnerable to neurodvelopmental
damage is organogenesis, the period in fetal development
when many organ systems are formed. Organogenesis in the
human is considered to occur from day 20 to day 55 of
gestation; in comparison, organogenesis in the mouse is
from day 7 to day 16. Thus, when studying the impacts of
exposure to developing organs, the time and duration of
exposure in the animal model must match the window of
exposure for human development.|
Unfortunately, most studies designed to determine the effects of exposure to a chemical to humans are not conducted on pregnant or young animals, but on mature adults.
