Noradrenergic Modulation of Emotion-Induced Forgetting and Remembering
TLDR
It is concluded that a differential processing of emotional arousal and valence influences how the brain remembers and forgets. Expand
Review of Biologic Matrices (Urine, Blood, Hair) as Indicators of Recent or Ongoing Cannabis Use
TLDR
The cannabis influence factor was demonstrated as a better tool to interpret the concentrations of THC and its metabolites in blood in forensic cases and therefore it was proposed to assume absolute driving inability because of cannabis intoxication from a CIF ≥10. Expand
Specific Micro‐RNA Signatures for the Detection of Saliva and Blood in Forensic Body‐fluid Identification
TLDR
It is concluded that miRNA extraction from forensic samples is possible and support a “proof of concept” that body‐fluid identification by miRNA analysis may become a potent forensic technique. Expand
Extensive tissue-related and allele-related mtDNA heteroplasmy suggests positive selection for somatic mutations
TLDR
The results suggest that in addition to neutral processes and negative selection, positive selection has an important influence on heteroplasmy: as individuals get older, specific alleles are selected for at specific nucleotide positions in specific tissues. Expand
Concentrations of Tramadol and O‐desmethyltramadol Enantiomers in Different CYP2D6 Genotypes
TLDR
YP2D6 genotype determined concentrations of O‐desmethyltramadol enantiomers and influenced efficacy of tramadol treatment and in PMs, non‐response rates to tramadols treatment increased fourfold compared with the other genotypes. Expand
References for determining the time of death by potassium in vitreous humor.
TLDR
A modified procedure is suitable for every case with the resulting precision of estimation being determined only by the duration of the terminal episode and urea concentration. Expand
Driving under the influence of synthetic cannabinoids (“Spice”): a case series
TLDR
Police as well as forensic toxicologists and other groups should become familiar with the effects of synthetic cannabinoid use, and be aware of the fact that drug users may shift to these “legal” alternatives due to their nondetectability by commonly used drug screening tests based on antibodies. Expand
Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)--standardised investigations and classification: recommendations.
TLDR
An approach to sudden infant death is outlined with discussion of appropriate tissue sampling, ancillary investigations and the use of controls in research projects to ensure optimal investigation of individual cases and enable international comparisons of trends. Expand
Polymorphic sites in human mitochondrial DNA control region sequences: population data and maternal inheritance.
TLDR
The data indicate that the neomutation rate seems to be very low from one generation to the other and the high variability of mtDNA control region sequences permits utility in forensic identity investigations. Expand
Ricin poisoning and forensic toxicology.
TLDR
The origin, biochemistry, toxicity, and analytical procedures for the determination of ricin are summarized and the homicide of Markov is described as well as recent cases of criminal ricin use. Expand
