Hello good morning Devi.

Cerebral/brain atrophy, or what the common people call brain shrinkage, is a condition where neurons (nerve cells) are lost in the brain as well as damage to the connections between these cells. This condition can be caused by diseases that damage brain tissue, such as stroke, Alzheimer's disease, encephalitis (inflammation of the brain tissue), neurosyphilis (nerve damage as a complication of syphilis / lion king), cerebral palsy (brain paralysis), multiple sclerosis, and due to brain injury. Elderly people can also experience neuronal loss, but this condition is progressive and slow, whereas cerebral atrophy caused by disease/injury occurs more rapidly and is more destructive. Other literature mentions that damage to nerve cells in the hippocampus (part of the brain) can occur due to depression or bipolar disorder. Cerebral atrophy can affect only certain parts of the brain, or generally affects all nerve cells in the brain.

Symptoms of cerebral atrophy depend on the area that is damaged, it can include symptoms of dementia (memory loss, impaired cognitive function, inability to think abstractly, difficulty carrying out executive functions such as planning and organizing things), seizures, and aphasia (difficulty in speak or understand language). To be able to diagnose a cerebral atrophy disorder, a direct examination by a doctor, CT Scan, or MRI is needed.

Regarding your question about whether cerebral atrophy can come back like a similar (reversible), the answer depends on the cause of the condition of the cerebral atrophy. If the cause is degenerative factors (aging), then the loss of these nerve cells cannot return to normal. However, in other conditions, such as atrophy due to depression, it is stated that the damage to cells caused by depression can return to normal (reversible), depending on the treatment given.

That's all the answers we can give, hope it helps.
