Aggressive behavior can be caused by a cyst

Aggressive behavior can be caused by a cyst

It is common to attribute states of mood and attitudes to the personality of a subject. However, the development of neuroscience and nuclear medicine allow a new perspective by visualizing the brain with MRI and SPECT (magnetic resonance imaging and single photon emission computed tomography respectively).

"The brain is the seat of what we are and what we do." Understanding it means understanding ourselves and our possibilities for change. "

Andrew had no history to justify his characteristics, such as abuse and mistreatment. Daniel Amen decided to know Andrew's brain through SPECT and MRI and discovered that a part of the kid's brain was missing. A region of the left hemisphere was displaced and occupied by cyst (a bag full of fluid) the size of a ball of golf. The occupied region should present the left temporal lobe. This region, when affected, brings significant changes in mood, memory problems, and learning.

Upon realizing Andrew's situation, Daniel Amen sought out neurologist colleagues who could remove the cyst. To his surprise, most of the classmates did not see any sense in pulling him out, as Andrew did not have "real symptoms" like seizures and speech problems. After much searching, the psychiatrist found a neurosurgeon who agreed to remove the cyst.

Shortly after the surgery, Andrew smiled at his mother. Something I had not done in over a year. His aggression, depressive states, and homicidal and suicidal tendencies disappeared.

Information like these needs to be disseminated to improve the quality of life, care, resources and, above all, to change paradigms related to personality. This and many other cases show that the brain is the seat of the are and do. Understanding it means understanding ourselves and our possibilities for change. A dangerous child may be a child who does not have the least physical conditions to control his behavior, despite all his efforts in this regard.

Use Carnival to gain more confidence

Have you thought of Carnival as a time of personal overcoming? No, we're not talking about the number of cups you can drink or the hours you stay awake. "The idea is to think of the party as a stimulus to gain more self-confidence," says psychotherapist Chris Allmeida. The mood of relaxation may, for example, serve as a pretext for flirting.
