Brain Awareness Month
June is Brain Awareness Month. There are many neurologic disorders that impact the brain, such as:
- Holoprosencephaly (HPE): This is a rare birth defect. Early in pregnancy, a baby’s brain ordinarily separates into two sections. This does not happen completely in children with HPE.
- Porencephaly: In porencephaly (or cystic encephalomalacia), a fluid-filled cyst develops in brain tissue. It may manifest before or after birth. It has many causes. For instance, it can appear after a brain injury. Stroke, bleeding, or infection can cause the brain injury
