Alcohol and multiple drug abuse in accused murderers

, : Alcohol and multiple drug abuse in accused murderers. Psychological Reports 52(1): 159-164

The effects of alcohol and multiple drug abuse on violent behavior were studied with a sample of 110 men charged with 1st degree or capital murder. Subjects were divided into 4 groups based upon whether they were sober, drinking alcohol, using alcohol and other drugs in combination, or whether they were abusing only non-alcoholic drugs at the time of the murder. These 4 groups were compared on 15 sociological, behavioral and demographic variables. Of these variables, 9 significantly differentiated the groups. Recommendations for intervention and future research are made.

(His7)-corazonin is a neuropeptide produced in the pars lateralis of the brain. It is stored in the corpora cardiaca and probably released from there. The only well-documented effect in locusts is increased melanization of the cuticle. We investig...
