Some structures of the brain have local operations; however, most tasks involve activity in various brain regions. Basal ganglia are associated with motor control and thinking.
Philip Lieberman and Kurt Diemberger discuss motor control, hallucinations, and mental processing at high altitudes.
Individuals vary in the amount of oxygen they need to function. Oxygen needs depend on genetics and acclimatization.
As conditions of altitude change, mental processing can decline. Diemberger recalls an alpine climbing experience.
Oxygen deprivation at high altitudes can lead to Parkinson's like symptoms. Lieberman describes a case study of a major disaster of high altitude climbing. Diemberger explains the "death zone" of alpine climbing.
