|Q: What Brain Area Involved in Physical Cause of BP?|
My question is specific. What part or parts of the brain are involved
in the physical cause of bp? I ask this because I am trying to understand
exactly what is going on in real terms. I have had experiences all my life that
may or may not be directly related to being affected by bp and wanted to
understand better if these experiences are the product of a malfunctioning brain
or something else.
Dear Richard --
I'm delighted to hear from someone with this question. I've tried to put
together some material that addresses it on my
website under "brain
tours", where there is a section on mood; and some data on the intracellular
basis of depression; and a section on the "what's
the latest on the understanding of bipolar disorder?" .
Unfortunately none of these is going to really answer your question; when that
answer emerges, as I hope it will while I'm alive, it may well win a Nobel prize
and will be one of the most sought-after answers in the history of health
science. I'll keep posting advances in these sections of my site, as I
learn about them.
