Neurological Deficit
Neurological deficit is a common result of stroke and other neurological injuries. It can result from direct injury or loss of blood flow and oxygenation of brain tissue. This neurological deficit’s symptoms can be different depending on where the damage is located in the brain, largely because of different functional areas of the brain. For example, this image from the learning map of Brodmann’s mapping of functionally distinct regions of the cortex.
Pick an area of the brain to focus on for your discussion; you may pick anywhere in the cerebral cortex, diencephalon, cerebellum, or brain stem.
Answer the following questions; you may complete additional research as needed:
Describe the area you selected, where it is located, and the area’s function. Be specific.
If damage to this area occurred, what would the symptoms be, or what would the patient experience based on the structure’s function?
What activities of daily living, ADLs, would you assume as affected? Explain your reasoning.
Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format.
