1. How does deteriorating brain structure impact behavior? Please provide an example and include sources (200-300 words).

Certain areas of the brain regulate specific thinking, feeling and behavior. As the brain deteriorates in certain areas due to various factors (aging, disease, brain damage, etc.), different feelings, speech, thinking processes and related behavioral deficits occur.

In fact, brain imaging can match brain structure to behavior "offering a window into the brain structure abnormalities that underlie the unique mental and behavioral features of some rare genetic disorders, Allan Reiss, M.D., said at the annual conference of the EEG and Clinical Neuroscience Society. In some cases, these studies may allow researchers to match specific genes with certain neurologic functions, Dr. Reiss said. He described ...
