What Happens When You Get Rabies? – Dear Blocko #2

Hey there! Welcome to Life Noggin! Oooh modern art! That’s neat! Welcome to another episode of Dear Blocko! This is where I answer your questions about
the body or the world, and me. You guys have a lot of questions for me! Although, some of the questions were a little
personal. I’m not giving you my credit card info guys. Let’s pull a Philly D and jump right into
it! Vince asks
What happens if you get rabies? If a person gets rabies, it can be pretty
serious. That’s because it’s a viral infection
that can affect your nervous system and cause your brain to swell up. After a relatively short illness, it can lead
to death. Which is bad. You can get rabies by coming into contact
with the nervous tissue of affected mammals and having it enter your body through something
like an open wound, but that’s pretty rare. You mainly get it if a rabid animal bites
you after it’s had rabies long enough for the infection to make its way into its saliva. Symptoms of rabies can include anything from
a fever and a sore throat, to a person fearing water after they had severe throat spasms
when trying to take a drink. Then paralysis can set in, starting at the
legs and moving up to the head. In the end, most people will die from cardiac
arrest or respiratory failure. If you’re ever bitten by animal, you should
get help right away! According to the CDC, you should wash the
wound with soap and water for at least five minutes. Then go see a doctor as soon as possible so
that they can decide if you need any more medical attention. Yeremy asks Dear Blocko, what happens to our brain when
we get angry? When you get angry and go all Hulk smash,
your brain can draw blood away from your gut and move it into your muscles, reading yourself
for any physical activity that your inner green friend might have. In this way, anger can trigger your body’s
“flight or fight” response. In most stressful situations, your amygdala
sends out a distress signal to your hypothalamus, which is like the command center of your brain. This communicates with the rest of the body
through your nervous system so that you can react to whatever situation you’re in, like
catching up to that ice cream truck that’s getting away. Hey, get back here and take my money! I want a banana fudge pop! Do you guys want anything from the ice cream
man? Let me know in the comments below! Okay, now for your guys’ favorite part! Questions for me! Marshadow_Gaming_YT asks Life Noggin, what do you do during your free
time? I do a lot of stuff when I’m not hosting
Life Noggin! I like to ride my bike, make art, create giant
platypus robots and make them fight to the death, go swiming. Ya know, normal everyday stuff that you humans
do! Danon candy101
Life Noggin can you ever contact your animator? We talk all the time. Well I talk to them. They’re usually busy creating stuff for
me to interact with. Sometimes they mess with me, like my head
just falls off, or my house is now a loaf of bread. But I like to think that’s just their strange
way of saying I love you! and now I have shoes made of snakes, so thank
you animator, for that. Do you have any questions about the human
body, the world around you, or anything for me? Let me know in the comment section below,
and make sure you use the hashtag #DearBlocko so I can find it. Do you have any art that you’ve made for Life
Noggin? You can share it with me on twitter or instagram
@LifeNoggin or you can send it to our P.O box! If you enjoyed this video, check out the last
Dear Blocko i did where I answer more of your questions. Why Do We Have / Get Body Hair? You humans are thought to have body hair as
sort of a evolutionary left over from your hairier ancestors. As always, my name is Blocko, this has been
Life Noggin, don’t forget to keep on thinking!
