HUMAN BEHAVIOUR AND LIFE PROCESSESS INTRODUCTION Our brain is considered as most complex organ and centre piece

of nervous system. Our brain is divided into three interconnected layers- central core, limbic system and cerebral cortex which regulate the everydays activities. Brain is physical organ like muscles and bone, the brain is unique and it is psychological organ, ultimately responsible for our moods of despair and elation, our sense of wellbeing and our sensation, perception of outside world and our awareness of its meaning. e must trace, if we have to gain a meaningful understanding of our personality and why we behave as we do. STRUCTURE OF NEURON Brain is !the psychological organ it gives rise to the mind that is to mental processes "such as perception, memory and language# and mental experiences. $ll the brain activities are carried by neurons or brain cells. %here are three types of neurons& 'ensory neurons, respond to input from senses (otor neurons, sends signals to muscles to control movements )nterneuron stands between the neurons that register whats out there and those that control movements.

*ach neuron has certain parts&%he central part of a neuron is called the cell body. )t has a nucleus, which regulates cellss function and a cell membrane, which is the skin of the cell. %he sending end of neuron is the $+O,, the long cable like structure extending from cells body, along which signals travel to other neurons, muscles or bodily organs. *ach neuron has only a single axon. (ost axons has many branches called %*-(),$.', so that a neuron can send a message to more than one place at a time. $t the ends of the terminals are %*-(),$. B/%%O,', little knob like structures that release chemicals into space between neurons when neurons has been triggered. (ost of neurons, communicate by releasing chemicals called neurotransmitters that affect other neurons, usually at their receiving end. *ach neuron has only one sending end that only have one axon, but having many receiving ends called 0*,0-)%*'. 0endrites receive messages from the axons of other neurons. ACTION POTENTIAL ,euron at rest have to maintain negative charge within them called resting potential. 0uring rest, more positively charged ions called cations and sodium ion are outside than inside and more negatively charged are inside the neurons , membranes covering the axon has very small holes or pores called 12$,,*.' , which open and close . hen neuron receives enough stimulation from other neurons, some of channels open, allowing exchange of ions that changes charge in the axon. %his exchange moves down towards terminal buttons. hen a neuron is resting and not conducting a nerve impulse, the inside of cell has negative charge. $ stimulus which excites the cell will make the inside charge a little less negative. $t rest , sodium ions cannot enter because even though the cell membrane is permeable , the openings are too small at this time for big sodium ions to enter .when cell receives strong

stimulation from other cell, the cell membranes opens up the special gates, one after the other , allowing the sodium ions to rush into cell .this causes inside the cell ,positive and outside of the cell to become negative. %his electrical reversal changes is called action potential. )t takes 3 of 3444th second , so the neural message travel very fast from 5 miles per hour in the slowest and 564 miles per hour in other neurons. %his action potential travelling down the axon. $fter the action potential passes, the cell membrane !pumps out the sodium ions back outside the cell and closing the gates until next action potential comes. SYNAPSE AND THEIR FUNCTIONS %he ends of axons actually reaches out several branches called axon terminals. %he tip of each terminal has a little knob called synaptic knob or terminal buttons. )t has number of little sac like structures called '7,$8%)1 9*')1.*'. )nside the synaptic vesicles, are the chemicals suspended in fluid called neurotransmitters. Between terminal buttons and dendrites of another neuron, there is fluid filled space called '7,$8'* or synaptic gap. 'ynaptic vesicles contain neurotransmitter molecules whereas dendrites of next neuron contain -*1*8%O- ')%*'. %hey have particular shape allows only a particular neurotransmitter to fit into it. hen electrical charge reaches the synaptic vesicles, they release their neurotransmitters into the synaptic gap. (olecules float and many fit into the receptor sites, activating the next cell. NEUROTRANSMITTERS ,eurochemists and pharmacologists have identified a number of neurotransmitters at synapse. $1*%7.*12O.),*&- it is the neurotransmitter found at the synapse between neurons and muscle cells. )f acetylcholine receptors sites on the muscle cells are blocked in some way, then muscle will be paraly:ed or unable to contract ;$B$"g.aminobutyric acid#&- it is the common inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain . ;$B$ can help to calm anxiety.

REUPTAKE OF NEUROTRANSMITTERS One method of deactivation is by catalysts called en:ymes, which triggers chemical reactions those breakup neurotransmitters molecules. 'econd method is by process of reuptake. in this process, terminal buttons take back the release neurotransmitters and store it in vesicles for use for next time 0rugs mainly psychoactive drugs may interfere with synaptic transmission.

FUNCTION OF CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM IN BEHAVIOUR %he central nervous system is composed of the brain and spinal cord .both brain and spinal cord are made of neurons and glial cells that control the life sustaining functions of body as well as thought , emotions and behavior. %2* B-$),& - brain is the true core of nervous system , the part that takes information received from the senses, makes sense out of it, makes decisions and sends commands out to the muscles and the rest of the body. %2* '8),$. 1O-0&- it is a long bundle of neurons that serves two vital functions the nervous system. %o carry messages from body up to the brain and =rom the brain down to the body

)t is divided into two areas- outer and inner. Outer region is composed mainly of axons and nerves, which appear white and inner section is mainly composed of cell bodies of neurons which appear grey.

REFLEX ARCH )nner section of spinal cord is made up of cell bodies separated by glial cells. %his part is responsible for the certain reflexes -very fast and life saving reflexes. (ainly three types of neurons are responsible for reflex action- sensory, motor and interneurons. %hese kind of response are controlled by spinal cord along for fast response. BRAIN STEM, CEREBELLUM AND RETICULAR FORMATION(CENTRAL CORE) Brain stem consists of four divisions&- the medulla, the pons and the midbrain. %hese all help to control and regulate many bodily functions like breathing , temperature regulation etc which are necessary for life. 1erebellum is the brains large, complex structure. )t receives sensory and other inputs from spinal cord , brain stem and forebrain. )t processes this information and then send output to many parts of brain to help to make our movements precise, coordinated and smooth and also helps to control posture and maintains equilibrium. -eticular formation is a complex region from medulla to the midbrain and contains many small clumps of neurons and a number of long and short nerve fibers. )t helps in activation and arousal of the cerebral cortex and remains active during sleep. )t also helpful in various degrees of arousal B from deep sleep state to alert awareness of the environment. )f this region is destroyed , a deep sleep state may occurs Cust like coma. 8ons triggers dreaming and waking up from sleep. (edulla is a centre of breathing, waking, sleeping and beating of heart. FOREBRAIN: THALMUS (LIMBIC SYSTEM) Dust above the midbrain, a kind of expanded bulb on top of the brain stem called thalamus. )t lies between the two cerebral hemispheres and is covered by them. %heir main function is to receive main inputs from other nuclei within itself and then send fibers to the cortex. %his can also transform and modify input before sending it on the cerebral cortex. FOREBRAIN HYPOTHALMUS AND PITUTARY .ying below the thalamus, there is a small but vital area of the forebrain known as hypothalamus. )ts importance is that it contains nuclei which are related to motivated behavior. =/,1%)O,'&- 3. )t receives reports about state of internal environment from the other bodily organs. hen internal environment change from their homeostatic level, certain hypothalamic neurons become active and sends information to the pituitary gland. )t monitors tha blood glucose and salt level, blood pressure and hormones. 5. 2ypothalamus is also means of nerve impulses sent to pituitary or by chemicals called 2O-(O,*' or releasing factors. >. sexual and maternal behavior and learning and memory are the important functions of pituitary gland.

CEREBRAL CORTEX =O-*B-$),&-it weighs about 3?44gms and divided into two cerebral hemisphere and further into different lobes. %hese have an important role to play in regulation and control of movements. 9arious regions of cerebrum have different functions to movement of specific parts of body. )t can control bodily movements and play an important role in the regulation and control of movement. 1erebral cortex has motor and sensory functions. (otor areas are concerned for bodily movements and other areas. 0amage of these parts may result in partial paralysis or complete paralysis of whole body.

FRONTAL AREA- PERSONALITY AND GENERAL BEHAVIOUR PATTERN )t assists in motor control and cognitive activities such as decision making, planning and setting goals. %wo different types of personality changes follow prefrontal lobe damage. )t includes lack of impulsiveness, immaturity in social relationship, and loss of initiative, decrease in spontaneous talking, reduced emotional expressions are main features. )ntellectual changes include lack in direction of behavior, inflexibility and memory impairment, problems in planning, and remembering the order of recent events. TEMPORAL LOBE ASSOCIATION CORTEX %he temporal lobe of each hemisphere lies below the lateral fissure in cerebral cortex. )ts main functions are hearing and language. 'ensory functions&- 3. )t is involved in hearing, perception and recognition of sounds. 0ifficulty in recogni:ing problems or melodies may result from damage to temporal lobe association cortex. )t helps in auditory perception and visual recognition. 5. 0amage also results in impaired sensation and trouble in indentifying pictures of common obCects and recogni:ing facts. .anguage functions&- left temporal lobe contains a region of association cortex called E *-,)1F' areaG. 0amage to this region may result in impairment of understanding of speech and written language. LEFT HEMISPHERE AND ITS FUNCTIONS .eft hemisphere is usually speciali:ed for language functions. 'troke typically affects one side of brain and produce paralysis of one side of body opposite that of affected side of brain. )f we know which side is paraly:ed, we can know that brain damage is in cerebral hemisphere of opposite side of paralysis. =unctions& - their main functions are locali:ed in in language problems *-,)1Fs area. 0amage to this area results

RIGHT HEMISPHERE AND ITS FUNCTIONS -ight hemisphere seems to have an advantage in recognition faces and remembering things in relation to each other. )ts main function is to verbally report the information and speech organi:ed in left hemisphere.

LIFE PROCESSESS
%he word life processes means the processes take place in the human bodies which are needed for the existence of life on *arth. =or example B 0igestion, respiration, excretion, reproduction, etc. Basically main life processes are sleep, stress and homeostatic mechanism. 3. Hom o!"#"$% M %&#'$!m! o( )o*+ 2omeostatic mechanisms control a property of all living things called homeostasis. 2omeostasis is a built-in, automated, and essential property of living systems. Breathing is an example of a homeostatic property. 2omeostatic mechanisms are self-regulating mechanisms that function to keep a system in the steady state needed for survival. %hese mechanisms counteract the influences that drive physiological properties towards a more unbalanced state 1onditions that are regulated in homeostasis include blood glucose level, temperature, water content of the body, and the amount of carbon dioxide and urea being carried by the blood. DEFINITION 2omeostasis, from the ;reek words for HsameH and Hsteady,H refers to any process that living things use to actively maintain fairly stable conditions necessary for survival.

Co'",o- S+!" m! o( &om o!"#!$! *xtrinsic (ost homeostatic systems are extrinsic& they are controlled from outside the body. *ndocrine and nervous systems are the maCor control systems in higher animals. %he nervous system depends on sensors in the skin or sensory organs to receive stimuli and transmit a message to the spinal cord or brain. 'ensory input is processed and a signal is sent to an effector system, such as muscles or glands, that effects the response to the stimulus. %he endocrine system is the second type of extrinsic control, and involves a chemical component to the reflex. 'ensors detect a change within the body and send a message to an endocrine effector "parathyroid#, which makes 8%2. 8%2 is released into the blood when blood calcium levels are low. 8%2 causes bone to release calcium into the bloodstream, raising the blood calcium levels and shutting down the production of 8%2. 'ome reflexes have a combination of nervous and endocrine response. %he thyroid gland secretes thyroxin "which controls the metabolic rate# into the bloodstream. =alling levels of thyroxin stimulate receptors in the brain to signal the hypothalamus to release a hormone that acts on the pituitary gland to release thyroid-stimulating hormone "%'2# into the blood. %'2 acts on the thyroid, causing it to increase production of thyroxin. )ntrinsic .ocal, or intrinsic, controls usually involve only one organ or tissue. hen muscles use more oxygen, and also produce more carbon dioxide, intrinsic controls cause dilation of the blood vessels allowing more blood into those active areas of the muscles. *ventually the vessels will return to HnormalH.

Blood vessels can sense resistance of blood flow against the walls when blood pressure increases. %he blood vessels act as the receptors and they relay this message to the brain. %he brain then sends a message to the heart and blood vessels, both of which are the effectors. %he heart rate would decrease as the blood vessels increase in diameter "or vasodilation#. %his change would cause the blood pressure to fall back to its normal range. %he opposite would happen when blood pressure decreases, and would cause vasoconstriction.%'2 is an example& blood levels of %'2 serve as feedback for production of %'2. 8O')%)9* =**0B$1F (*12$,)'( )t is designed to accelerate or enhance the output created by a stimulus that has already been activated. )nput increases or accelerates the response. 0uring uterine contractions, oxytocin is produced. Oxytocin causes an increase in frequency and strength of uterine contractions. %his

in turn causes further production of oxytocin, etc. /nlike negative feedback mechanisms that initiate to maintain or regulate physiological functions within a set and narrow range, the positive feedback mechanisms are designed to push levels out of normal ranges %hus, homeostasis depends on the action and interaction of a number of body systems to maintain a range of conditions within which the body can best operate. 2omeostatic mechanisms are a fundamental characteristic of living things. ithout these mechanisms, facets of a body that need to be kept operating in a steady state, such as temperature, salinity, acidity, hormone levels, concentration of gases such as carbon dioxide, and the concentrations of nutrients, would become so unbalanced as to threaten the life of the organism.

STRESS
'tress is a internal state that can be caused by physical demands on body "disease conditions, exercise, extremes of temperature etc.# or by the environmental and social situations which are evaluated as potentially harmful , uncontrollable or exceeding our resources for coping. %he physical, social and environmental causes of stress state are termed as stressors. One induced by stressors, internal stress state can lead to various physical bodily responses and psychological responses like depression, anxiety or hopelessness. S", !!o,! $ little stress is helpful in coping and to adCust but beyond the limit it becomes ! distress. (ain stressors causing distress are& 8hysical stressors such as inCury , infections , exercise, noise and climatic changes 'ocial stressors are family, social activities , health and financial conditions 8sychological stressors includes frustration, conflicts etc.

GENERAL ADAPTATION SYNDROME Bodys response to stressors is called Egeneral adaptation syndromeG. )t consists of three stages& $larm reaction 'tage of resistance 'tage of exhaustion

01 ALARM REACTION )t is essentially the emergency response of body. )n this stage, prompt responses of the body, many of them mediated by the sympathetic nervous system, preparing the body to cope with stressors. 21 STAGE OF RESISTANCE

)f stressor continues to be present, stage of resistance begins, where body resists the effect of continuous stressors Jstimuli. 0uring this stage, certain hormonal responses of the body are important line of defense in resisting the effects of stressors or stimuli. (ainly $1%2 "adrenocorticotrophic hormone# is important and more active among hormonal response. 'ecretion of $1%2 is controlled by 1-= "corticotrophin releasing factor#, made by cellsof brain structure "hypothalamus#. 'tressorsJstimuli stimulate hypothalamus to release more 1-=, in turn increasing the secretion of $1%2 from pituitary glands. $1%2 stimulates adrenal gland to secrete steroid hormones such as cortisol into the blood. 1ortisols adaptively deal with stressors or stimuli for long period of time but maintenance for long period of time may be harmful. 8rolonged elevation of cortisol levels results in elevated blood pressure and other hormones in excess may have their owns harmful actions which may worsen the bodys response to stimulus. 31 STAGE OF EXHAUSTION =inal stage of general adaptation syndrome is the stage of exhaustion. )n this stage, the bodys capacity to respond to both continuous and new stressorsJstimuli is seriously compromised. =or eg& - due to actions of cortisol, person may not be longer able to ward off infection and becomes sick and die. SOURCES OF STRESS %here are many sources of stress. %hey are broadly classified a I'" ,'#- !", !!o,!, which arise from within the body like infection, feelings of depression. E4" ,'#- !", !!o,! originate outside of individual like transfer to another city, or death in family or any pressure from peer. D 5 -o.m '"#- !", !!o,! occur at predictable times throughout individuals life. S$"6#"$o'#- !", !!o,! are unpredictable and may occur at any time. *xamples are& 0eath of family member (arriage or divorce Birth of child ,ew Cob

)llness. E(( %"! o( !", !! 'tresses have physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual consequences. /sually effects are mixed as stress affects whole of the body. 8hysically, stress can threaten persons physiologic homeostasis. *motionally, it can produce negative or self-destructive feelings about self. )ntellectually, stress can influence persons problem solving abilities and perceptual abilities. 'piritually, stress can challenge ones beliefs and values.

MANIFESTATIONS 8upils dilate to increase visual perception when serious threats to body arise. 0iaphoresis increases to control elevated heat due to increase metabolism. 2eart rate and cardiac output increases to transport nutrients and by products effectively 8allor skin due to vasoconstriction of blood vessels due to effect of nor epinephrine. 'odium and water retention increases due to release of mineral corticoids , which increases blood volume, -espiratory rate increases in rate and depth due to vasodilation causing hyperventilation. /rine output decreases. 0ry mouth 0ecreased peristaltic movements (ental alertness improves. )ncreased muscle tension. Blood sugar increases dye to release of glucocorticoids and gluconeogenesis.

COPING 7ITH STRESS 1oping may be described as dealing with change-successfully or unsuccessfully. 1oping strategies is a natural or learned way of responding to a changing environment or specific problems or situation. Or coping is cognitive and behavioral effort to manage specific external

andJor internal demands that are appraised as exceeding or taxing the resources of the person. 1oping strategies can be long term and short term. .ong term coping strategies can be constructive and realistic. =or example, in any situation talking with others or trying to find out more about situation. Others include changes in lifestyle pattern such as eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, using problem solving in decision making instead of anger etc. 'hort term strategies can reduce stress to a tolerable limit temporarily but are ineffective ways to permanently deal with reality. %hey may have destructive effects on the person. *xamples are using alcoholic beverages or drugs, daydreaming, etc.

1oping mechanisms can be adaptive or maladaptive. $daptive coping help the person to deal effectively with stressful events and minimi:es distress associated with them. (aladaptive coping can result in unnecessary distress for person

NURSING MANAGEMENT ,urse needs to remember that coping is always purposeful. %he effectiveness of persons coping is influenced by number of factors. )ncluding, ,umber ,duration and intensity of stressors 8ast experiences of individual 8ersonal qualities of individual. 'upport systems available to individual.

3. ASSESSMENT&- assessment includes ,ursing history &- it includes questions related to client perceived stressors or stressful events , past and present strategies and signs of stress. 8hysical examination for indicators of stress like nail biting , nervousness ,weight changes or stress related problems like hypertension , dyspnea.

5. DIAGNOSIS&- it includes $nxiety due to stressors 1ompromised family coping =ear related to perceived threat )mpaired adCustment to situation )neffective coping

>. PLANNING&-nurse must develops plans in collaboration with patient and significant support people according to clients health state , level of anxiety, support resources, coping mechanisms. ?. IMPLEMENTATION:- nurse can choose one of these methods of intervention that will be effective for client . 2ealth promotion strategies &- it includes& *xercise helps to relieve tensions , promotes a feeling of well being and relaxation Optimal ,utrition helps in increasing the bodys resistance to stress. 8eople need to avoid excess of caffeine , salt, sugar and fat and deficiencies in vitamins and minerals . 'leep helps in restoring the bodys energy levels and managing stress. %ime management helps in less stress situations.

(inimi:ing anxiety&- nurses must carry out measures to minimi:e anxiety and stress of patient for example , encourage the patient to take deep breaths before giving inCections or massaging the client to relax. /sing relaxation techniques& - several relaxation techniques are used to relax the mind and tension . ,urse should encourage the clients to use these techniques in stressful situations like during child birth, before and during painful procedures or postoperatively to cope with pain. %hese techniques includes& Breathing exercises (assage 8rogressive relaxation 7oga (editation (usic therapy 2umor and laughter therapy.

%hese are the various strategies which can be used to deal with stress and person will be able to prevent and minimi:e the effects of stressors on the body.

SLEEP
e have to sleep because it is needed to sustaining normal levels of cognitive skills such as speech, memory, and innovative and flexible thinking. )n other words, sleep plays an important part in brain development1

$ behavior characteri:ed by a change in consciousness and marked by a set of particular behaviors. Brain and body rest Brain engages in several activities

Brain (echanisms 1ontrolling 'leep 'leep is promoted by a complex set of neural and chemical mechanisms 0aily rhythm of sleep and arousal suprachiasmatic nucleus of the hypothalamus pineal glands secretion of melatonin

'low-wave sleep nuclei of the medulla and pons and the secretion of serotonin -*( sleep neurons of the pons STAGES OF SLEEP 'leep occurs in a recurring cycle of K4 to 334 minutes and is divided into two categories& non-*( "which is further split into four stages# and -*( sleep. %here are four stages in the non-*( sleep.-*( stands for rapid eye movement. ,on--*( sleep 0uring the first stage of sleep, weIre half awake and half asleep. Our muscle activity slows down and slight twitching may occur. %his is a period of light sleep, meaning we can be awakened easily at this stage. ithin ten minutes of light sleep, we enter stage two, which lasts around 54 minutes. %he breathing pattern and heart rate start to slow down. %his period accounts for the largest part of human sleep. 0uring stage three, the brain begins to produce delta waves, a type of wave that is large "high amplitude# and slow "low frequency#. Breathing and heart rate are at their lowest levels.

'tage four is characteri:ed by rhythmic breathing and limited muscle activity. )f we are awakened during deep sleep we do not adCust immediately and often feel groggy and disoriented for several minutes after waking up. 'ome children experience bed-wetting, night terrors, or sleepwalking during this stage. -*( 'leep

%he first -apid *ye (ovement "-*(# period usually begins about 64 to K4 minutes after we fall asleep. e have around three to five -*( occurrences a night. $lthough we are not conscious, the brain is very active - often more so than when we are awake. %his is the period when most dreams occur. Our eyes dart around, and our breathing rate and blood pressure rise. 2owever, our bodies are effectively paraly:ed, which is said to be natureIs way of preventing us from acting out our dreams. $fter -*( sleep, the whole cycle begins again. EFFECTS OF SLEEP DEPRIVATION

'leep deprivation not only has a maCor impact on cognitive functioning but also on emotional and physical health. 0isorders such as sleep apnea, a temporary suspension of breathing, occurring in some newborns "infant apnea# and in some adults during sleep, which result in excessive daytime sleepiness that have been linked to stress and high blood pressure. -esearch has also suggested that sleep loss may increase the risk of obesity because chemicals and hormones that play a key role in controlling appetite and weight gain are released during sleep. $fter Cust one night without sleep, concentration becomes more difficult and attention span shortens a great deal. ith continued lack of sufficient sleep, the part of the brain that controls language, memory, planning and sense of time is severely affected, practically shutting down.
