How Dementia Affects The Brain by jacksonthomas: 11:17am On Apr 11, 2022
Although dementia causes havoc on the brain, most people believe that it attacks and destroys the brain all at once. However, this is not the case. Dementia primarily affects three primary regions of the brain, and you must understand each part/lobe to comprehend dementia's devastation. The frontal lobe, temporal lobe, and parietal lobe are the three lobes that make up the brain.

The frontal lobe is the largest of the brain's lobes, and it is located in the back of the forehead around the mid-skull. The ability to talk is provided by this lobe, and dementia outbreaks only affect a limited region of the brain, affecting the person's ability to communicate.

Temporal Lobe: This lobe is mostly found above the ears on each side of the head in the front-to-back strip. It primarily regulates the functions of hearing and sound. Auditory information, visual information, organization, and correct speech understanding are all handled by the temporal lobe. Dementia causes hallucinations in this lobe, causing a person to have trouble recognizing family members' faces.

Parietal Lobe: This lobe is located above the temporal lobe and behind the frontal lobe. It functions similarly to a computer in that it absorbs visual cues and coordinates the appropriate motor response, such as seeing a ball tossed and understanding to lift the arm to catch it.

Because dementia significantly affects and destroys these lobes, the person has numerous challenges throughout this time. Unfortunately, detecting dementia in its early stages is very impossible. The only method to minimize it is with proper medicine and therapy.
