On this view, consciousness necessarily entails phenomenal self-awareness. This paper argues that cases of delusions of thought insertion undermine this...

Predicting the Self: Lessons from SchizophreniaAbstractNewly developed Bayesian perspectives on schizophrenia hold out the promise that a common underlying mechanism can account for many, if not all, of the positive symptoms of schizophrenia.

Human axillary odour : The microbiota consists mainly of 'Micrococcaceae' (predominantly Staphylococcus species), 'lipohilic and large-colony aerobic diphtheroids' (predominantly Corynebacterium species) and Propionibacterium species. Significantly higher numbers of both total bacteria, and in particular corynebacteria, were associated with a 'pungent, apocrine' odour quality, while high numbers of staphylococci correlated with a 'faint acid, nonapocrine' odour quality.

Does suffering dominate enjoyment in the animal kingdom? An update to welfare biologyAbstractNg (Biol Philos 10(3):255–285, 1995. https://doi.org/10.1007/bf00852469) models the evolutionary dynamics underlying the existence of suffering and enjoyment and concludes that there is likely to be more suffering than enjoyment in nature. In this paper, we find an error in Ng's model that, when fixed, negates the original conclusion. Instead, the model offers only ambiguity as to whether suffering or enjoyment...

Opioid Toxidrome Following Grapefruit Juice Consumption in the Setting of Methadone MaintenanceBackground: Methadone is a synthetic mu-opioid receptor agonist used in the treatment of chronic pain and opioid dependence. Methadone is metabolized by several cytochrome P450 isoenzymes; primarily CYP3A4, CYP2B6, and CYP2D6 before renal and fecal elimination. Exposure to substances like grapefruit juice, that inhibit these isoenzymes may result in increased blood levels of methadone, and thus may manifest...
