Real Brain Problems. This compilation of brain scans of patients diagnosed with various psychological problems are compared with those who do not have the sympt

This compilation of brain scans of patients diagnosed with various psychological problems are compared with those who do not have the symptoms of such disorders. These scans show that the patient, in fact, have abnormal brain activity and therefore perceive reality different than a person with healthy brain development and no traumatic experiences.

In some cases yes but i have a serious case of adhd bordering on autism and i was diagnosed at age 6 and re diagnosed every 6 years, im 21 and still taking meds.

So you are a really case.
But more often the parents shove tons of sugar down their kids throat and let the teachers and tv do the "upbringing" and then wonder why their kid doesn't behave and bring it to a doctor because it can't be there fault, it must be ill. And most doctors diagnose ADHD either because they are too lazy to do all the necessary tests and/or because they don't get **** if they tell the parents that they ****** up, not their kid.

not over diagnosed, just used an excuse too often, usually by people not diagnosed with it.

This is true. I am diagnosed ADHD (without hyperactivity). I got A&Bs in high school (with meds) and college (without). I still have trouble driving sometimes, I need to schedule how I will work on something with basic action/reward economy, etc. When I talk to people who use it as an excuse to not listen for more than a few seconds, I point out that I was able to follow the topic.

A problem, I think, is that mental conditions are diagnosed with a binary system when the conditions work on a spectrum; e.g. a group of people in a room may have ADHD, but their ADHD rarely makes them the same. Everyone is on the spectrum, some people are further on the spectrum than others.

That, I agree with. I just hate it when someone yells at my friend who has had actual brain scans and has gone through more psychiatrists than Ozzy Osbourne and Lindsay Lohan together to just get over it and that he is not really depressed.

Most people self-diagnose themselves will all of this. Doctors how ever do seems to be saying "Oh you stopped paying attention for 5seconds, well **** giving you brain scans or any sort of tests, you have ADD or ADHD!"

So this is oddly appropriate because I'm sitting in a Biological Psychology lecture at the university of Minnesota right now, and we just happen to be going over the brain and it's structures(beginning of the semester and all.

And I have to say I really don't like the evidence put forth by this comp. while I'm not here trying to say that mental illnesses are not real, I don't feel like these pictures offer any actual proof.

The 'colorful' brain scans are actually showing areas of increased metabolic activity. Use of glucose, oxygen, or increased blood flow. Obviously this is different for any two people at a given time and varies within a single person based on time of day and activity that they are doing.

The PTSD scan is, at my best guess, a CAT scan. It's showing the difference in structure between the two brains and the main difference I can pick out seems to be the size of the ventricles at the center of the brain. I actually recently learned that these areas of the brain hold cerebrospinal fluid, and that they are interconnected to form one expansive reservoir of fluid held within the brain and spine. You might see this difference in size between any two people of different size, just like you might find that two differently sized people have different sized hands.

I can sympathize with anybody living with mental illness and I hope you are able to find help with or peace from your struggle, however, if someone is giving you a hard time I would not suggest using this image to try and change their mind. Think about the image you want to show of yourself and others that might be living with the same illness. I don't think you want to come off as the type of person that believes anything on the internet. Instead, do some of your own research. These diagnoses are still around today because there is good science behind them, find out what that is for yourself so that when someone does put you down about your illness, you can show them the science.

As I said below, I didn't mean much of this post only that the images that I found caught my attention. I knew it would be grounds for opinions, research, and exchange of stories, information, and knowledge. I am actually okay with all the comments below. It seems everyone believes these pictures are not enough to support the diseases stated, however they still think these illnesses are a thing, just overly diagnosed. I couldn't agree more with them.

I really don't like posts like these on funnyjunk. I can understand that people like it, but the information they get is worth nothing, everything you see on the internet has to be checked with other sources.

Be critical to information on the internet guys. I have way too many stupid people in my class who browse funnyjunk who constantly tries to correct our teacher on stuff, based on facts he read here. You'd be surprised by how much of it is completely wrong.

Agree and disagree.
If these are average images over a large sample size then I do think it could be regarded as significant "evidence". But obviously if this is just one to one comparison then it doesn't mean that much as scientific results.

Yes but due to those people ,all people that say they have them are criticized .I have ADHD and even if it is proven throught tests most people say to me that I don't have nothing and the sad part is that even my parents don't want to admit it .

hate to say it, but if you have a proven mental illness and your parents of all people don't address it, especially when (and I'm guessing here, so correct me if i'm wrong) you're a minor, ADHD is one of, but won't be your biggest problem. I'm sorry, hopefully when you're of age you can treat it on your own terms. Best of luck until then and hang in there.

they mainly think that these are just emotional bumps that you can get over and forget about like a wound. when in reality they last for possibly years and can get better or worse like an actual disease.

I met people like this and they called me fake...oh well, I suppose I don't have PTSD, its just a case of being a pussy and having terrifying nightmares every night that make me want to die...what I'm saying is its really a real problem when people fake mental illness like that, like bigger than you'd think.

The problem is that names of serious diseases are becoming cultural terms for simple everyday issues, which in turn causes confusion about the difference.
#104 to #48 - disruptard (02/05/2014) [-]
I think the issue is that people actually THINK they have these problems. With the internet and maybe certain websites (cough cough tumblr cough cough) teenagers especially can go online and wallow in their self-pity with other people who are the same (not necessarily online, in real life too). Kids these days get pampered as **** from the day they are born and aren't ready for real life at all - so when going gets tough and you need to get by on your own, get a job, pay taxes and have responsibilities in general - it's easier to say "wahhh wahhh I'm depressed" than to man the **** up and accept that life isn't all fun and games 100% of the time. You gotta have bad periods in life to make the good ones good, if that makes sense.

Reference: My own life. At 17 I was dumped by my girlfriend and hated my job and life, I thought my life was over because I wasn't used to things being sucky. I damn near almost killed myself because I convinced myself I was depressed.

Then I realized break-ups and bad jobs are part of life and I was being a spoiled little pussy and grew a pair of balls instead.
#131 to #104 - Rascal (02/05/2014) [-]
you generalize too much. it's true what you say, but it's not always as simple as "man the fk up". some people can have it really hard loosing a pet and others can get raped and resist adversity (fun fact, that ability to overcome distress and adversity is called resilience). that doesn't make their feelings fake; there's no standard of adversity to make your pain valid. I've never had diagnosable depression, but i work with psychiatric patients (just didn't want you to think i'm justifying myself).
#180 to #131 - disruptard (02/05/2014) [-]
You have some really valid points. Even though some people can get through a war and lose friends without getting deppressed, doesn't make it less valid when someone gets depressed from being rejected by a girl. Thanks for the input anon
User avatar #308 to #180 - zzforrest (02/05/2014) [-]
Also, do remember that most clinical depressions are not instances initiated by emotional stress - basically, you don't have to have anything bad happen to you, depression is a condition where you eternally feel like **** .
#132 to #131 - Rascal (02/05/2014) [-]
i do believe this disorders are overdiagnosed though; but you can (truly) diagnose them in different life situations.
User avatar #156 to #104 - jukuku (02/05/2014) [-]
If you nearly killed yourself, you likely were actually depressed. Acute and chronic depression are different things.

So, i'm just going to point out that human brains can look really different at different times of the day, even if its the same person, so taking a scan of someone with ADHD and someone without and saying "Look, the colors are different" is an incredibly terrible way of providing evidence that it exists. Now, all these diseases exist, and idk if they are over diagnosed or not, so don't say that i'm saying they don't exist. But 4 sets of brain scans? That proves jack 			*******		 			****		. That's just awful science. Give me a hundred brain scans, or hell even 20, and then we are talking.

Do you really think the doctors only took one scan? I'm pretty ******* sure that the basis of any experiment is to repeat the process to make sure that it not only happens, but how often. These scans are just the average brain scan. However, if you really want to actually see them, then become a damn doctor. Then, THEN you can judge and give an opinion that really matters.
User avatar #105 to #40 - Scorch ONLINE (02/05/2014) [-]
The problem here is that both you and Sataria are assuming this happened. There's a 99% chance it happened and if it did the results would be published and you could find it on a reliable and acknowledge research page (yes these things are posted online for everyone to see, I know this because I looked up my dad's cancer there).

I'm not going to believe this post untill they show me one of those and the results turn out to be in favour of the post. And no I cant be bothered to look them up myself, however, I can be bothered to stop the spread of misleading information.

Furthermore no legends are provided so there's no way to tell what kind of scans these are and if they are even the same scan and on the same viewing intensity (this is easily adjustable for better reviewing I have simelar scans at home)
#251 to #40 - Rascal (02/05/2014) [-]
The thing is, these scans vastly oversimplify what is going on.

I'm a scientist in training, so i'm not going to take anything on assumption. There is no link or indication that multiple scans were taken. All that was provided was 4 sets of brain scans. If you have the other scans, great. Post them. Otherwise, i am going to point out flaws in this persons data. That is what science is about. So kindly **** right the **** off.

Above is a link to a paper in which scientists are developing algorithms to automatically diagnose patients wit these types of conditions based on brain scan. With many psychological conditions there are real, measurable differences in activity levels in various parts of the brain, and actual structural differences in various regions of the brain, both of which we can show on a brain scan.

You're a scientist in training? What's that, a student? Nobody said this is science, jack, any more than a single tumor is an example of all tumors. It's an example meant to simplify a concept for those that aren't scientists, in training or not. Your snark is what us grown-ups call "common sense".

It is definitely because I'm not entirely sure how to read brain scans... but can someone explain the difference between the PTSD brain and the Normal one?   
   
I mean I know PTSD exists, I've seen people who've had to deal with it, but to me the brain there looks like it is in between swipes... or whatever they do that makes it move

I looks... like... smaller? Idk like contracted, like a muscle spasm. Like whip lash! You're muscles get all weird. The brain in that picture looks like it's more sensitive. I think that's why it's brighter. Lots of activity going on all over and it doesn't know what to do with it'sself so it's spasming up. Still functioning.. but delicate. I could be wrong.

Well, I have yet to have neurology and imaging exams analysis, but from what I can see the differences might be a somewhat simplified anatomy of the gyrus and sulcus (the bumps and entrances in the brain surface) though I don't believe it's possible for a psychological condition to alter the brain's anatomy that much.

There's also what appears to be a loss of density/ammount of gray matter on the PTSD one (the darker area on the surroundings of the previously cited bumps and entrances in the brain's surface), but that can be caused by differences in the exam and even by being taken on different machines.

All things considered, I'm calling mumbo-jumbo on the PTSD images' one, since it looks like even different parts of the brain are being looked at in the images (the PTSD one having more of the brain stem visible on the bottom)

There is more white matter in the PTSD brain because it disrupts the ratio of gray to whit matter in the brain. Those dark gray spots in the middle of the brain are the amygdala. They process fear and are larger in the PTSD brain, making the person more susceptible to experience fear in benign situations.

I have some basic knowledge of how MRI works and as far as I can tell there's not any clear difference between them. They are pictures from different layers of the brain so even if there were differences it would be hard to tell. The healthy scan is somewhere inbetween the first and second of the scans in my image, the unhealthy somewhere between the fourth and fifth. Also it looks like contrast is way down since you can't see any of the meninges(membranes). I don't get why the person who made this used a standard MRI to show the effects of PTSD when fMRI would have been much clearer.
User avatar #223 to #206 - adak (02/05/2014) [-]
Also the moving thing is basicly just like how a gif works. MRI just gets you a bunch of pictures of how the body looks in cross-sections. Stick them together like frames from a movie reel and you've got a moving picture.

hippocampus, the part of the brain that is responsible for memory storage, has shrunk a little in the person with PTSD. more black.
#218 to #204 - adak (02/05/2014) [-]
I feel like these pictures are a really bad example to show that. They're from different parts of the brain, the normal one is from a layer in front of the one that shows PTSD. But I've been checking around a bit since I saw this first and there seems to be evidence that supports the fact that the hippocampus shrinks between 10-20% in those suffering of PTSD.

I still think that a funtional MRI or a PET would have been a lot clearer. Especially if you just wanted to show that there is a large difference between how a normal brain functions compared with that of PTSD patients.

Now, that being said. I do not completely doubt that ADHD exists....I believe it is BEYOND over diagnosed and I believe that well over the majority of people who are diagnosed need to grow up and stop acting out. I think parents and teachers use this as an excuse to not discipline the kids.

Unless of course they get a brain scan like the one above to actually prove they have a disorder. Until then, sit down, shut up, and do your work.

well i do hate to be that guy, i say ADHD does exist because i have it to the point i cannot function in society now, you might be thinking of ADD and not ADHD because the H is truly important

reasons why:
1. if you talk to me ill just keep talking then walk away just randomly not because im a dick just something caught my eye and the hole shiny shiny thing pops in
2. when you thoughts race at millions of thoughts a second you cant focus on anything but the thoughts so everything becomes white noise and you just stop listing
3. its not me just sitting down its i physically cant and with the "you need discipline and never where told to by teachers" i was everyday and i couldn't i had to move and it physically bothered me and still does when i sit still for longer than 10 mins

now none of this is not acting out nor discipline its a true shame that people think like that but its nothing like it im almost 20 years old and have ADHD you dont grow out of it your stuck with it forever, but i do agree that some people arn't adhd and just are playing it up just to do it but the people who truly have it get mad over these posts because its stereotyping a problem we suffer everyday and we are told to suck it up

Also that general feeling of boredom, nothing can entertain you more than a few hours. ADHD have generally "bad luck" because they rush everything they do and usually mess up in everything

that permanent feeling that youre always and i mean every single ******* day at every single ******* hour thinking that youve forgotten something... and then as always youve forgotten something which for whatever reason pisses someone off... but lifes not impossible as ADHD, and once you get used to it random/unrelated stuff happens to you all the time

Same thing with me man! I've ben diagnosed since elementary school. The problem with me is trying to stay focus while I read! I'll read like a couple lines and then realize I don't know what I'm reading about lol.

Well - let's just say that the discoverer of ADHD, Leon Eisenberg, reportedlty admitted that ADHD is a fictious disease.

Just so you know, having a kid who "moves around", "haves problems concentrating/learning", "is a difficult child" etc. doesnt make him instantly ill, but as a parent you should seek then evaluation (from a psychologist and a neuropediatrician), because they know the right kind of tests (and trust me, just for ADHD there are 27 different ones +/-), so they can tell if your child is just having a phase i.e a psychollogical issue which is cured through terapia, or a neurological issue, which cant be cured, just treated (autism being one of the latter).

mfw a kid i know had ADHD for the week he had exams. Then it cured itself afterwards

Eh, I believe these issues exist, sure. But I absolutely refuse to believe every second person has at least two of them. Really, grow the **** up.

Don't blame me for not giving sympathy to people with disorders, blame the people who get a bit sad one day and then rant on Facebook or Tumblr "I'm so depressed, life sucks, I want to die"
