The vaccine blocks a protein in the brain called NMDA, but does so only when epilepsy or stroke occur. The vaccine is released in the brain as needed and is prote

Alzheimers Disease Alzheimer's Disease is a progressive, degenerative disease that attacks the brain and results in impaired memory, thinking and behavior (Internet). It is a degenerative disease affecting nerve cells of the frontal and temporal lobes of the cerebrum of the brain. The disease is the major cause of presenile dementia (i.e., the loss of mental faculties not associated with advanced age) and is thought to be the largest single cause of senile dementia as well (Britannica, 306).

Memory Improvement Memory is defined as the accuracy and ease with which a person can retain and recall past experiences (Webster`s Dictionary, pg. 611). It is often thought of as a capacity, such as a cup, that could be full or empty. A more common comparison is one to a computer. Some minds, like computers, can have more software, being able to save and recall more experiences, information, and memories than others can. And like a computer, minds can be upgraded.

It may appear strange that the problems facing the Brazilian economy effects the U.S. as well. The financial depressions of Brazil bring the wealth of the nation down in turn. Brazil is the largest economy in Latin America, accounting for almost half of the continent's total output, and it is the eighth largest economy in the world. Yet, it is still developing.

Many parents do not realize how something like divorce could possibly affect their children as much as it does themselves. As the case may be,

She and the spot are all there is, and though she is eighteen months old, an age for touching, tasting, pointing, pushing, exploring, she is doing none of these. She does not walk, or c

However, the effects of alcohol on sleep are mostly negative ones, and these two things should not be interrelated at all.

With this knowledge, one can begin to understand how alcohol and sleep are related and what effects alcohol has on sleep. Sleep is

Information that we are capable of sensing stays with us in the sensory register for a very brief period of time. From this point the information is cognitively processed. The role of attention can be found in the moving of this information from the sensory register into the working memory. Normal attention span seems to develop in three stages. First, th
