Alright, where does the most refraction of light occur in the eye?

What is the function of aldosterone?
Aldosterone mainly regulates sodium and potassium ion regulation and can play a role in controlling blood pressure too
While interning at a local hospital you are asked to take an ECG of two patients named A & B. Patient A recently had surgery and is still under heavy anesthetics while Patient B is alert and awake. After taking the ECG you get a brain wave similar to that of D shown in the image below for both patients.

You then report your findings to your supervisor who immediately becomes panicked and rushes off to find the physician on duty.

1. What is the appropriate classification of brain wave A, B, C and  D? 
2. Why are the brain waves you recorded abnormal for patient B?

Nice question! :D
Brain waves A, B, C, and D are classified by amplitude, shape, and frequency, and are alpha, beta, theta, and delta waves, respectively.
Brain wave D is a delta wave, which indicates brain damage in alert adults. (I wish the best for Patient B)

Everything is good just that wave A is beta and wave b is alpha. You can tell because beta waves have a higher frequency than alpha waves. Your turn!!

Bobby has been experiencing problems with his speech. Although the his sentences were fluent and grammatically correct, they were littered with nonexistent words and make no sense. After making sure that he wasn't purposefully speaking in pig Latin, his concerned family members got him to get it checked. An MRI scan revealed a brain tumor as the cause of his language disorder.
Most likely, where was this tumor? (Specific name of this area, which lobe, which hemisphere)
Edit: grammar :P
