Description

Brainfreezer is not conclusively a ripoff of Brain Freezer from Johnny Test. Similar name and powers do not equate to a ripoff. Brainfreezer's powers are part of her. JT's Brain Freezer relies on technology and is more strongly a ripoff of the DC Comics supervillain, Mr. Freeze. Studies have shown that people who have migrainesmight be more prone to brain freeze. This is because the trigeminal nerve in those who have migraines is already sensitive and a cold stimulus can activate this nerve pathway even more, Goldberg said. How to prevent it The connection between ice cream headaches and migraines isn’t fully understood, though the link is commonly accepted. A 2001 study conducted by neurologist Peter Mattson of Sweden’s University Hospital found that women who had experienced at least one migraine within the previous year were twice as likely to develop a headache from cold water as those who were migraine-free. A cold-stimulus headache is thought to be the direct result of the rapid cooling and rewarming of the capillaries in the sinuses leading to periods of vasoconstriction and vasodilation. A similar, but painless, blood vessel response causes the face to appear "flushed" after being outside on a cold day. In both instances, the low temperature causes the capillaries in the sinuses to constrict and then experience extreme rebound dilation as they warm up again. [12]

A 2003 study published in the journal Cephalalgia investigated the phenomenon of "ice cream headache" among 8,359 school adolescents in Taiwan using a self-administered questionnaire. Researchers found that the overall lifetime prevalence of brain freeze was 40.6%, while students with migraine had a higher frequency of ice-cream headache compared with the students without migraine (55.2% vs. 39.6%). Why we get brain freeze is a bit of a mystery. Obviously eating too-hot foods is more dangerous than eating too-cold foods, so it’s not as if your body is warning you about a real threat. We can’t know if there was a specific evolutionary benefit of brain freeze, but I would guess that it’s our body’s way of telling us to slow down. Cold Immunity: Though unconfirmed, since supers are told to be immune to their own powers, Brainfreezer's cryokinetic power most likely renders her immune to cold (meaning she is completely undisturbed by any degree of cold).

But your nose and fingertips get quite numb, though, and if you don't keep rubbing your forehead, you get what we used to call 'an ice cream headache.'

It’s also called a cold headache or an ice cream headache since eating ice cream is a common trigger, but it can even be caused by drinking ice water. And in 2004, a Turkish neurologist named Macit Selekler rounded up patients who suffered either migraine headaches or tension headaches. Together with his colleagues, Selekler then administered the “ice test,” which required that patients use their tongue to hold an ice cube against their palates. The test resulted in headaches for nearly 60% of his patients, and of those, more than 80% were from the migraine group.

You don’t need to see a doctor for a simple brain freeze that happens while you’re enjoying a cold drink. But if you’re experiencing regular headaches, you should seek the advice of a medical professional. A small study presented in 2012found that the sudden increase in blood flow and resulting increase in size of the anterior cerebral artery, a blood vessel located in the middle of the brain behind the eyes, may be responsible for brain freeze pain. The study found that when patients' brain freeze ended, the artery constricted and reduced blood flow, which is likely what caused the pain to disappear. The researchers said they suspect that an increase in pressure within the skull, brought on by increased blood flow to the head, is what causes the pain. There’s an interesting side note about how cold-induced headaches might help researchers find a migraine cure.Understand what causes brain freeze. Surprisingly, scientists still don’t know exactly what causes brain freeze, but recent research has given them some very solid theories. Two mechanisms seem to be at work in your mouth when something extremely cold is unexpectedly introduced. (Remember, your body temperature is around 98.6°F, but the ideal serving temperature for ice cream is around 10°F!). [6] X Trustworthy Source Johns Hopkins Medicine Official resource database of the world-leading Johns Hopkins Hospital Go to source In a 2003 study in Taiwan, 8,789 adolescents in junior high completed a questionnaire about “ice cream headache.” Forty percent of the participants had experienced an ice cream headache. The term ice-cream headache has been in use since at least January 31, 1937, contained in a journal entry by Rebecca Timbres published in the 1939 book We Didn't Ask Utopia: A Quaker Family in Soviet Russia. [9] [ non-primary source needed] The first published use of the term brain freeze, in the sense of a cold-stimulus headache, was in 1991. [10] [ non-primary source needed] [a] 7-Eleven has trademarked the term. [11] Cause and frequency [ edit ] Another possible explanation for brain freeze is that a cold sensation activates an important nerve in the head and face, known as the trigeminal nerve. Once the trigeminal nerve is triggered, blood vessels inside the headmomentarily tighten and constrict and then rapidly dilate or widen, resulting in a sudden feeling of pain, Goldberg told Live Science. It is thought that when severe cold touches the nerve on the roof of your mouth, it causes referred pain.
