According to the recruitment of encephalic areas, during the functional activities which are connected or not to secondary tasks, the cerebral cortex is such required during the information processing, because when the movements become automatized, they start occurring in subcortical areas, as the basal ganglia, cerebellum and thalamus, and the cortical area becomes free to process more complex information.
One could therefore propose that a reason for this greater frequency is because neuroepithelial disruption could occur more slowly during the onset stage in some types of hydrocephalus; thus the anomalous presence of AQP4 in the CSF would be longer and the parenchymal-CSF barrier disruption (transparenchymal pathway) during this time would allow more brain AQP4 to be in contact with lymphocytes in encephalic regions where this does not normally occur and where brain AQP4 is unrecognized and consequently autoantibodies (AQP4-Ab) might be generated which would then attack the AQP4 surrounding the optic nerve, in the ciliary body and on the ventricular surface of the sylvian aqueduct, and thereby trigger NMO and noncommunicating hydrocephalus.
To localize the encephalic region or neural network related to specific cognitive deficits, functional neuroimaging research compares the activation of certain brain regions when performing particular cognitive tasks to the resting-states of these regions.
In addition, certain reports indicate a high frequency of severe cerebral atrophy in HIV-1 positive children with early onset of encephalopathies that also show encephalic myelination delay (7) and a correlation between expressive language deficit and imaginological findings (9).
Thus, the third form of JCV encephalic disease was described as JCV granule cell neuronopathy.
But we also have provided the first evidence that BMDCs can contribute simultaneously to different encephalic areas through different mechanisms of plasticity: cell fusion for Purkinje cells, which are among the largest and most elaborately dendritic neurons in the human brain, and differentiation for olfactory bulb interneurons.
Increasingly, we saw encephalic fetuses or those with spina bifida, and other rare deformities.
Nonetheless, it is my view (and this is something I said in a conference that Eva Kittay organized last September, whose proceedings were included in a recent issue of Metaphilosophy) (36) that people with very severe cognitive disabilities, any child that is born of two human parents, short of someone in a persistent vegetative condition or an encephalic person--anyone who exhibits some form of striving and awareness--is normatively entitled to all of the capabilities on the list.
It is known that early intervention after encephalic injury is essential for attainment of satisfactory results.
