Deep Impact (1998)

The Cell


Concept 1: Althougth the brain disorder used, "Whalen's Infraction," is entirely made up, the movie still incorrectly uses the idea of an infraction. The movie uses infraction to represent a brain disorder or something which affects the brain. In reality, an infraction refers to an incomplete bone fraction without displacement and affects the bony tissues of the brain. An infarction, such as a cerebral infarction, affects the brain. A cerebral infarction, or tissue death, occurs when the brain does not receive enough blood flow.
