Explanation Of Brain Chemistry?
In the afternoon, I just had an MRI EEG fan test, from the EEG test there was an abnormality in which there was a shortage in my brain so as to find out the cause of an MRI, and after an MRI there was nothing strange so the doctor concluded this came from brain chemistry, whereas I myself still confused with what is the explanation of brain chemistry? Please information, thank you
Hello Peni, Thank you for the question.
What symptoms or complaints are you experiencing? Electroencephalography (EEG) is an examination that aims to find electrical activity in the brain. The human nervous system has electrical activity that functions to control the functioning of body organs and the body. The electrical activity of the brain can run normally due to the role of brain neurotransmitters, a kind of brain chemical that helps carry signals from nerve cells to their targets. This disruption to the production or function of the brain's neurotransmitters can cause disruption of signal delivery and ultimately, electrical activity of the brain. In addition, the electrical activity of the brain can also be disrupted if there is a foreign body in the brain such as tumors or a collection of infections that interfere with the structure of the nervous system OR because blood flow is disrupted for example due to blockages or bleeding which causes nerve cells to reduce nutrients and oxygen to work normally.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an examination used to determine the structure / parts of the brain. From this examination it can be seen whether there is a foreign body in the brain or impaired blood vessel flow in the brain. If the MRI is not found any abnormalities, then the cause of disruption of electrical activity in the brain is a disruption of the brain neurotransmitters mentioned above.
Due to limited information about your symptoms, please consult a neurologist who recommends this examination to you. Feel free to ask further questions from the doctor and discuss further treatment.
Hopefully this information is useful.
