Symptom

Description

Neural Breach

Breach the blood/brain barrier to allow access to the host brain. Causes dystonia - rapid eye blinking

Cerebral Tendrils

Tendril production in the cerebral cavities begins. Enables increased control over host brain

Frontal Mesh

Tendrils mesh with frontal lobe - the conscious thought centre - and gain ability to mentally manipulate host

Perceptive Jolt

Tendrils increase brain pressure, resulting in fever which disrupts host priorities and decision making

Perceptive Shift

Worm grows to significantly increase intracranial pressure, severely disrupting host risk/reward analysis, resulting in risky, unsafe and impulsive decisions

Cognitive Scrambling

Electrical activity from tendrils causes mild seizures which completely scramble host decision making abilities

Occipital Mesh

Tendrils mesh with occipital lobe - the visual processing centre. Hosts less likely to notice worm infections

Akinetopsia

Host struggles to perceive motion making them more likely to collide with others / objects

Hallucinations

Occipital lesions created, causing severe hallucinations. Lack of awareness increases transmission chance as well as risk of injury

Schizophrenia

Inflamed dopamine receptors fragment mental processes and increase infectivity. Can cause fatal fevers

Blindness

Primary visual cortex disconnected causing blindness. Significantly reduces awareness and causes fatal accidents

Immaturity

Hormone production altered which causes reduction in maturity. Lower levels of hygiene increase infection

Mania

Excess serotonin production triggered. Manic episodes lead to increased contact with others and inability to focus

Aggression

Hypothalamic tap causes irrational hatred and violence, especially towards authorities and uninfected

Acute Encephalitis

Multiple inflammatory lesions in the brain triggered. Causes neurological damage resulting in death

Obsession

Severe damage to orbital cortex triggers OCD - forcing host to obsess over a specific worm related task

Insanity

Neuropathic manipulation causes severe emotional and behavioral abnormalities, increasing infectivity. Can be fatal

Confusion

Dopamine production stimulated to cause bouts of confusion in host. Harder to concentrate on complex work

Memory Loss

Neuritic plaques deposited on grey matter significantly impact memory and learning. Very hard to cure

Apraxia

Bruised tissue causes inability to execute certain movements. Reduces infectiousness but is extremely hard to cure

Aneurysm

Tendrils feed off blood vessels in the brain which causes aneurisms, can be lethal and hard to accurately diagnose

Aphasia

Bruised tissue causes language impairment. Makes developing a cure significantly harder

Coma

Mature Tendrils constrict the brain stem and cause a loss of consciousness in the host. Potentially fatal and significantly harder to cure

Brain Haemorrhage

Tendrils digest brain matter for nutrients causing complete degeneration and rupture of the cerebral tissue

Adrenergic Constriction

Beta-receptor blockers released, dampening anxiety in the host and lessening severity of allergic reactions to the worm

Anxiolytic Infusion

Mass synthesis of neurotransmitter, gamma-aminobutyric acid, significantly reduces anxiety in the host and minimises severity of reactions

Psychosis

Tendrils tweak dopamine receptors, inducing occasional states of psychosis and personality shifts to better accommodate worm

Despair

Altered serotonin levels impact mood regulation, induce feelings of despair in the host and lessen self preservation instinct

Suicide

Tendrils release neurotoxins which cause severe disorientation and suicidal impulses in the host

Adoration

Surges of testosterone and estrogone hijack host emotions and create desire to spread infection

Devotion

Surges of Dopamine and Serotonin compel the host to constantly think about the worm and triggers intense rushes of pleasure

Transcendence

Overdose of oxytocin and vasopressin forces host into a permanent state of worship / acceptance - treating the Neurax Worm as an eternal god
