Structural Reliability of Road Accidents Reconstruction
Reconstruction of road accidents combines objective and subjective action. The former concerns science, the latter assessment of human behavior in the context of objective findings. It is not uncommon for experts equipped with an arsenal of tools to obtain similar results of calculations, but to present radically different conclusions about the cause of the accident.
Counter ion Influence on Chemical Shifts in Strychnine Salts
The highly toxic plant alkaloid strychnine is often isolated in the form of the anion salt of its protonated tertiary amine. The relative influence of different counter ions on (1) H and (13) C chemical shifts in several strychnine salts in D2 O, methanol-d4 (CD3 OD), and chloroform-d (CDCl3 ) solvents.
Ontogeny of the Ovary in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Activation of primordial follicles into the growing pool, selection of the dominant follicle, and its eventual ovulation require complex endocrine and metabolic interactions as well as intraovarian paracrine signals to coordinate granulosa cell proliferation, theca cell differentiation, and oocyte maturation.
Effect of Temperature on Bone Tissue: Histological Changes
The analysis of burned human remains has been of great interest among forensic anthropologists largely due to the difficulty that their recovery, classification, reconstruction, and identification present. The main purpose of this analysis is to present histological methodology for the interpretation of bones altered by thermal processes.
Psychopathic Characters in Fiction
The theme of psychopathy has fascinated artists and the general public for centuries. The first concepts on psychopathy came from the parasciences, such as phrenology where anatomical features were linked to certain psychopathic/immoral behaviors.
