Ethical integrity of criminal law seems to necessitate at least some provisions of heightened scrutiny in assessment of insanity claims for the individuals who - as the result of mental illnesses involving prosopagnosia and reduplicative paramnesia - act in a way they do not perceive to be wrong. This study informs a more differentiate approach to the ill intent (or formation of requisite intent) - a legitimate objective of the fair deterrence. Accurate diagnostics of the offenders with delusional misidenitifaction syndromes would include careful assessment of comorbidity, brain trauma, organic psychosis (Lewy body disease, frontal brain tumor, pituitary tumor, cerebral amyloid angiopathy, spino-cerebral ataxia, Parkinson's disease, Prion disease, Huntington's disease), epilepsy and postictal delirium, cerebrovascular disorders (hemorrhagic or ischemic stroke, arteriovenous malformations, Moyamoya disease, atherosclerosis, carotid artery stenosis), other severe mental illnesses (paranoid schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorders, bipolar depression, obsessive -compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder), pharmacokinetic induction (Ketamine), cerebral metabolic disorders, postpartum psychosis, genetic mutations (E1A binding protein, P300), biological age of the offender. Often, the psychognomic inventories employed by the expert-witnesses lack in the construct, external, concurrent, and discriminative validity; as well as test-retest reliability - leading to the poorly informed and unidimensional solutions. A more accurate assessment of the offenders with Capgras or Fregoli syndromes would include: MRI or CT scan to map the hippocampal atrophy and varying amounts of the increased T2-weighted signals in subcortical and periventricular white matter, voxel-based morphometry of the right frontal gray matter, fusiform gyrus and Brodmann speech area-37, tractography of the face processing circuitry and occulomotor processing speed. Test utilized by the Courts for trying sanity and volition (ALI, M'Naghten), or justifying a death sentence when the defendant does not understand the reason for imminent execution (Sell factors, Panetti or Alleyne tests), should appreciate differences between the mental capacity and competence - the requisites of autonomy in making decisions, self-incrimination, as well as separation of the wrong from the right.

A defect or largess, a sensory fusion or transcendental sensing, synesthesia is known for over 200 years and is defined as a cross-modal sensory linkage. Despite of the wealth of literature on synesthesia, this book is one in a kind, as it pioneers in exploring this phenomenon in the courts of law. Based on 134 updated scientific sources, the current effort stratifies synesthesia into the eight clinical groups and reviews the legal and legislative forum around this phenomenon. In an effort to understand the impact of synesthesia on establishing evidence, or defendants' motivations behind the actions plausibly obscured with collided sensations (especially in traffic accidents), the case law is studied. A discussion about reasons, to which we could imply the absence of synesthesia-defense in criminal justice or torts, is provided.

Die selteneren Wahnsyndrome treten zumeist als sekundäre Symptomatik bei anderen psychischen Erkrankungen wie Schizophrenie oder Depression auf. Die Kenntnisse über diese psychopathologischen Phänomene sind jedoch oft gering und ihre korrekte Beschreibung und Benennung wird häufig unterlassen. Der Schwerpunkt des Buchs ist daher die Psychopathologie im Sinne der diagnostischen Differenzierung, aber auch die Frage, ob es spezifische therapeutische Ansätze für die Behandlung der einzelnen Syndrome gibt.

This is a bilingual (German, English) story about a piglet named Phineus, who knew math but didn't know how to make a proper mess. He was clean and neat, therefore all pigs were calling him "naughty" or "special." Phineus was about to change his identity, to become a 'regular and normal' pig with all dirty habits required, when he met someone just like him and understood that he's not the only "special" in their community. He chose to remain the same neat and naughty piglet and was no more concerned about the pigs calling him nasty names.

A small number of Germans came to New France and mixed with the French-Canadians. However, the first major round of German immigration to Canada began after the British conquest of Nova Scotia. In Saskatchewan, the German settlers came directly from Russia, or from the Dakotas. They formed compact German-speaking communities built around their Catholic or Lutheran churches. They established villages on the prairies in a 40-mile-wide tract east of Regina. Inevitably, resources were scarce. One young lady made a big fortune by learning to bake $20,000 worth gooseberry pies in a small iron skillet. This book is dedicated to all resourceful, creative, brave and hardworking people who built the northwest of Canada.
