Swearing is closely linked with the right hemisphere of our brain as this is the part that controls automatic speech.
Basal Ganglia's right part is also used in uttering the bad words and we know that BG controls our motor functions. So, in a sense, we can say that swearing is almost like a motor activity that has emotions attached to it.
Another essential part of the brain involved in swearing is Amygdala, which is the part of our limbic system. Amygdala's role is to detect threats and this can explain why we experience an increase in heart-rate, sweating and pain-tolerance.
The main neurotransmitters that impact our automatic speech and hence, swearing are dopamine and serotonin.
Excess dopamine is linked with aggression and swearing.
Also, we know that the serotonin system suppresses dopaminergic function and that's why when the serotonin levels go low, the dopaminergic system gets liberated and we start feeling negative emotions and this is when we swear.
Types of swearing:
1⃣ Dysphemistic swearing: This is used to make the listener think of negative things.
2⃣ Abusive swearing: As the name suggests, abusive swearing is used with the intent to abuse, insult or intimidate others.
3⃣ Idiomatic swearing: This is the most common type of swearing that is used to show that a meeting is informal and that a person feels comfortable enough around people to swear.
4⃣ Empathic swearing: Used to emphasize a point.
5⃣ Cathartic swearing: Ridding oneself of negative feelings by outwarldy expressing it. Basically it's when you swear after stubbing your toe.

So this was just a normal day at work. I don’t know if we’re good doctors, but we’ve got hell of a style. @niko_lamb@chrisseverijns
Another pregnancy and severely awful time with my migraines getting unbearable and have spent the whole week in bed in excruciating pain 😭. I received my occipital nerve block injections 💉👤 in my head yesterday at the hospital and thankfully this morning I am functioning (still in pain but up)! 🙌🏼 Again thankful for our NHS however wish I had been treated sooner and didn’t get to this stage, hoping to now be able to enjoy the Easter weekend with my baby girl 💗

Let's first examine the Per Unit Reimbursement (PUR). In general, when we look at the overall performance of the group, PUR may be a good figure to track; it provides a pulse on overall performance. For example, what is the overall PUR each month? General PUR measurement provides minimal insight into information, and statistically speaking, it does not show an extensive understanding of each payer. Since the goal is to improve the financial performance of the group by increasing the payment of the Underpaid claims, PUR really needs to be addressed individually for each payer. That way, the effects of the additional payments can be tracked back to respective areas that are being addressed.
Day 18 in hospital!😢😁 Moto” Give yourself the same attention and care you give to others and watch yourself BLOOM”🌸🌼 I’m fighting against all odds, pushing through the incredible pain of peripheral Neuropathy , I never knew such a pain existed, my entire foot feels like a hot burning, electric shock sorest thing I’ve ever felt. It is super hypersensitive, I have no ankle jerk still, my foot is very weak and as you can see I have muscle wastage of my calf/knee of 4cm 🤔 I am pushing with every ounce of myself to walk again but I’m excited to say pain management is getting a little better.. my neurologist diagnosed me with RSD syndrome however a part of me is scared it’s chronic neurological Borelia except I have no other Lyme symptoms anyway I am just focusing on walking again with mind and body connection. I can’t wait till I recover I think I’ll start doing every sport there is .. I find myself wishing I appreciated my legs before a little more! 🌈 I will get back to all your DMS soon! Sending all my lymies healing vibes 🌼🌼🌼 #lymediseaseawareness#musclewasting#neurology#rsdsyndrome#rsd#lymewarrior#meditation#positivevibes

The hot cross bun sign refers to the MRI appearance of the pons in a variety of neurodegenerative diseases.
T2 hyperintensity forms a cross on axial images through the pons, representing selective degeneration of pontocerebellar tracts. It has been described in:, multiple system atrophy (MSA), spinocerebellar atrophy types 2 and 3, cerebral vasculitis (causing Wallerian degeneration of pontocerebellar tracts), variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD), and JC virus granule cell neuronopathy. 👤 Case courtesy of A/Prof Frank Gaillard. #radiology#easter#goodfriday#MRI#neurology#foamed#foamrad

Yi guides the qi... In other words, where intention goes, energy flows... 🌊🌞🌀⚡🌱 Today I officially completed my Masters of Science in Acupuncture! Among countless lessons, I have learned to yield to the unexpected & try to accept that which is beyond control. I have gained the ability to shape clear long-term goals while maintaining an awareness that everything can change in any moment... 🎍 It feels INCREDIBLE to have this reached this place & I am so excited to take my NCCAOM boards in the next few months. I plan to be licensed in New York state before the end of this year! I don't know what adventures & adversities lay in our path @kamranmirshahi but I am ecstatic to be able to experience it all with you.
Please head over to @ithacahealthandwellness to follow our practice (we also have a Facebook page 😉)! Acupuncture, Chinese herbal therapy, Chinese medical massage, qi gong (therapeutic movement), Eastern dietary therapy, cupping, plus other modalities will be available later this year!
I would really love to assist patients with women's health (esp. #fertility & #painfulmenstruation issues) and post-stroke recovery. Come meet me at our table at the Ithaca is Local Business Expo, Thursday, May 16!! The expo is free to the public & goes from 5:30-8:30 at the @ithacafarmersmarket 😍💚🌷I am offering 5 min of free Tui na (Chinese medical massage which can be performed over clothing) during the first hour of the event! Please come with any questions about what conditions acupuncture & Chinese medicine can help with!
Although genetics plays a role in Parkinson’s disease, the answer to the questions “Is Parkinson’s disease genetic?” is not simple. Check out my latest video to learn about this and how important neurogenetics is in the process of finding better treatments and cures for neurodegenerative diseases.

💥Hello, I am a family medicine physician with a focus on mental health in San Francisco, and I also run a concierge business in aesthetics on the side. I love the freedom that medicine provides for women to become independent and to help lift up other women!💥 #doctorsorbit @doctorsorbit
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder following Alzheimer’s disease. Clinically, PD is characterized by resting tremor, hypermyotonia, postural instability, and bradykinesia. Additionally, patients with PD can also manifest with nonmotor symptoms, such as cognitive decline, olfactory dysfunction, constipation, sleep disorders, and autonomic symptoms, and these nonmotor symptoms usually occur prior to the onset of motor symptoms. PD severely affects the quality of life of the individual with the disease and also creates a great burden on the caregivers. The typical pathological hallmark of PD is degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNpc) and eosinophilic inclusion bodies (Lewy bodies) in the remaining neurons, which is the major contributor to the deficiency of dopamine in the basal ganglia. The exact pathogenetic mechanisms of PD is not yet fully understood. Current theories regard PD as a multifactorial disease, involving various genetic and environmental factors, among which mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative stress play an important role in the pathogenesis and development of PD.
Lewy body diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease (PD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), and multiple system atrophy (MSA), are associated with a wide range of nonmotor symptoms (NMS), including cognitive impairment, depression and anxiety, sleep disorders, gastrointestinal symptoms, and autonomic failure.
