biology revision project #2

  1. 1. Learning and gaining knowledge
  2. 2.  9b Students know how the nervous system mediates communication between different parts of the body and the body’s interactions with the environment. 9c Students know how the feedback loops in the nervous and endocrine systems regulate conditions in the body.
  3. 3.  It’s a group of disorders that affects movements. It results from brain damage that occurs during, or after birth. It also affects the nervous system.  There are different types of cerebral palsy: ▪ Diplegia affects arms and legs. ▪ Hemiplegia affects limbs on one side of the body. ▪ Quadriplegia affects all limbs. ▪ Monoplegia affects only one limb. ▪ Triplegia affects all three limbs.
  4. 4.  Cerebral palsy was discovered by an English surgeon in the 1860’s named William Little. William Little notice the stiffness in childrens arms and legs called spastic diplegia. The previous name of cerebral palsy was ‘The Little’s disease’. Cerebral palsy is also known as CP. Williams theory of cerebral palsy was difficulties during birth.  Williams theory was the most common affect of cerebral palsy, but physicians today discovered many more affects towards CP.
  5. 5.  Interference during delivery such as lack of oxygen to the fetus. Cerebral palsy can be diagnosed before and after birth. Epilepsy was known after CP; a brain disorder with repeated seizures. Cerebral palsy is causedmostly by the nervoussystem.
  6. 6.  Having cerebral palsy causes the nervous system to weaken the spinal chords connection to the brain.
  7. 7.  Cerebral palsy is incurable, but it can be maintain by physical therapy. In physical therapy they exercise and learn how to balance themselves out. They also learn how to make body movements on their own.
  8. 8.  Early signs of cerebral palsy will be noticeable around the age of 3. A main sign of cerebral palsy in babies would be development delay and abnormal muscle tone. ▪ Development delay is when children or adults are not able to stand, walk, run, sit, or grab objects. ▪ Abnormal muscle tone is tension in the muscle or stiffness in the body. Babies born prematurely are most likely to have cerebral palsy.
  9. 9.  Most people with cerebral palsy, are unable to talk.  They use devices that helps them communicate, or a chart with letters.  Some with cerebral palsy that are deaf, use sign language.
  10. 10.  Many people assume that people with disabilities are incapable of learning, as a matter of fact they can learn; it just takes time. It depends on what type of cerebral palsy you have, to be consider an intellectual disability.  An Intellectual disability is a disability with slow limitations, both in intellectual functioning and in adaptive behavior.
  11. 11.  The basics of learning for people with CP are learning how to:  Eat, communicate, exercise and learn to maintain there muscles.  By accomplishing this they can be themselves and express who they are.
