CSF scans and basic brain anatomy - clips
« on: July 12, 2017, 07:16:59 AM »

Brain fog and memory issues may be due to CSF involvement  - and cerebral blood flow  - especially if you have POTS/ OI

For anyone interested in learning more about the anatomy of the brain and CSF flow I have found a few useful you tube clips

There are plenty more clips out there but I found this a good introductory sequence.

Just take is slowly and don't try to remember it all at once - this takes doctors years to learn -  so watch one a day or a few occasionally and you will start to pick it up  - very interesting of course.

1 Tad Wanveer clip on normal  CSF  flow in a diagram
short 6 mins - good animated diagrams - good intro

2 More in depth and thorough

types of brain  scans, brain anatomy  and CSF

shows what axial coronial and sagital images mean  - pause it at this point to see it clearly.

3 Neuroanatomy brain dissection

see anatomy on real human brain - very, very helpful but also a bit squishy of course.

WARNING   - shows a REAL human brain - some kind person donated their brain so that we can learn from this - my mother did the same when she died.)
It is more about general brain anatomy than csf but very intereting and useful to persist to see the venticles as they are in real life.

4 Even more squishy but totes fascinating  - shows how SOFT the brain is in real life and therefore whey CSF is SO important  - hello brain fog???
But seriously be WARNED that this shows a REAL HUMAN BRAIN removed from a recently-deceased human.
(Some kind person donated their brain so that we can learn from this - my mother who was very ill due to EDS did the same when she died.)

Excellent clear view of the cerebellum at the 3/4 mark.

5 Anatomy on a plastic model brain - very clear explanation of the parts of the brain with no real human body parts involved - you get a good clear view of the cerebellum (for Chiari) and the pituitary gland -  but it is very detailed.
(Note the red hands of the demonstrator - MCAD? Reynaud's?   ...and he also has evident joint hypermobility in his thumbs.

NOTE ALSO  at the very end the 'Olive' - a part of the brain that is responsible for "registering the stretch of muscles" !!!)

Stiff zebras pay attention? )
