Solving any complex problem, we naturally look for patterns to help simplify matters. Patterns of occurrence are suggestive of predictability in an otherwise messy ‘Where’s Waldo’ world. But how do we isolate and order factors to make solutions easier to find? Hint: size matters.
Let me reveal a secret: brain surgery is, in theory, actually pretty straight-forwardly simple. Being pragmatic, the brain has no more cachet than any other bodily organ. Yet the brain represents a synergy that is more than the sum of its parts.
Imagine your own home. Whether you live in a rural log cabin, chalet, city row house, sleek modern, Tudor style, Victorian, A-frame, ranch bungalow, trailer park, lighthouse, saltshaker or lofty apartment, you know that form follows function. What about your yard and/or surrounding landscape? Natural, native elements are inherent to architectural design, as reflected by the interior. By extrapolation, architectural design also incorporates behavior. And crime.
My report investigating the neurobiology underlying sleep and the forensic implications of sleep related violent behavior.
Can you detect a lie? Adjudicators of the law might question whether suspects, witnesses and/or victims are lying or accurately recalling the truth. While perceptional interpretations necessarily vary somewhat, there is only one truth that is reality. The brain is the cardinal transgressor in the commission of a crime, prescient to the realistic accounting of actions and observations.
Abstract: Violent criminal behavior may be a sequela of functionally and structurally compromised prefrontal and corticolimbic cortices. These anatomically distinct yet functionally integrated regions of the human brain confer qualities of moral sensibility and...
My exposé exploring neuroleptic action at the neuronal and neurochemical level with emphasis on the efficacy of off-label prescribing and diagnostic criteria.
Let’s think about the math behind examining microscopic stuff. Shifting and rescaling how we think. Can you imagine thinking like a pathogen?
Why have our body temperatures dropped?
Forensic toxicology behind eye drops. Who knew?
