The sequence of events involved in the neurodegeneration caused by transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) is not yet known. Using a murine scrapie model in which neurodegeneration in the hippocampus is restricted to CA2, we show that pyramidal neuron damage and death by an apoptotic mechanism occur early in the incubation period, prior to the(More)
We evaluated transcranial magnetic stimulation producing motor evoked potentials (TMS MEP) as a method to detect spinal cord ischemia during surgery for thoracoabdominal aneurysms. Four groups of swine were subjected to different types of surgically-induced ischemia. TMS MEP and neurological function were assessed at baseline, immediately after the ischemic(More)
The sequence of events involved in the neurodegeneration caused by transmissible spongiform encephalopathies is not yet known. Using a murine scrapie model in which neurodegeneration in the hippocampus is restricted to the CA2, we show an up-regulation of the proapoptotic markers Fas and caspase 3 early in the incubation period prior to disease-specific(More)
This study aimed to investigate whether implicit memory is preserved in children with traumatic brain injury (TBI). A fragmented picture-completion procedure (Snodgrass, Smith, Feenan, & Corwin, 1987) was used to compare implicit and explicit memory of 12 children with severe long-term TBI and 12 controls, matched for age and gender. On the implicit memory(More)
This paper begins with a review of what is currently known about false confessions and their effect on criminal cases. It examines the three main types of false confessions, the situational and personal risk factors for making a false confession, and the impact of confession evidence on jurors. The purpose of this paper is to examine how jurors perceive an(More)
