Topiramate is one of the currently most promising compounds in the field of addiction medicine. This paper discusses its potential utility related to a phase model of addiction development, focusing on the assumption that addiction is a continuous process involving different neurobiological pathways, depending on the stage of addiction. A specific emphasis will be made on the development of dysfunctional automatic behaviors in the late stage of addiction and the central role of glutamate and AMPA receptors. The aim is to propose that if too broad an effect of anti-addiction medication is expected (such as anti-craving, anti-relapse and preventive effects), the results might be disappointing. The speculative specific efficacy of topiramate in addiction is described. ©2011 Bentham Science Publishers Ltd. [less ▲]

Der Autor über sein Buch Selbstbestimmungsrecht der Völker und Indianer in den USA In dieser englischsprachigen Untersuchung (mit deutscher Zusammenfassung) wird der Frage nach der Anwendbarkeit des Selbstbestimmungsrechts der Völker auf die Indianer in den USA nachgegangen. Im ersten Teil findet sich eine ausführliche Darstellung des völkerrechtlichen Instituts Selbstbestimmungsrecht in historischer und systematischer Hinsicht. Die weltweit aktuelle Debatte um die mögliche Trägerschaft bei indigenen Völkern, also Ureinwohnern, wird im Blick auf die Entwicklungen in der UN dargestellt. Der zweite Teil widmet sich der Rechtspraxis der USA gegenüber den indianischen Völkern und stellt diese in den Kontext des Völkerrechts. Abschließend wird ein Healing Treaty vorgeschlagen, mit dem eine Wiedergutmachung und konkrete Lösungen zum derzeitigen Konfliktfeld in den USA angeboten werden. Die Veröffentlichung soll die Diskussion über einen zu kritisierenden Zustand in den USA auch in Deutschland beleben und wendet sich daher nicht nur an Völkerrechtler, Amerikanisten, Ethnologen, Politologen, sondern auch an alle Indianer-Interessierten in der Öffentlichkeit.

Several authors have investigated the risks arising from the growth in mobile phone use (e.g. debts incurred by young people). The aims of the present study are (1) to validate a new questionnaire assessing problematic mobile phone use: the Problematic Mobile Phone Use Questionnaire (PMPUQ), and (2) to investigate the relationships between the PMPUQ and the multi-faceted construct of impulsivity. With these aims, 339 subjects were screened using the PMPUQ and the UPPS Impulsive Behaviour Scale (UPPS) which assesses four distinct components associated with impulsive behaviours (urgency, lack of premeditation, lack of perseverance and sensation seeking). The results showed that the PMPUQ has an acceptable fit and assesses four different dimensions of problematic mobile phone use (prohibited use, dangerous use, dependence, financial problems). While each facet of impulsivity played a specific role in mobile phones use, urgency appeared to be the strongest predictor of problematic use. Copyright © 2008 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. [less ▲]

The ePublication ‘The “Franco-German duo” and Europe as seen in cartoons (1945–2013)’ uses French and German press illustrations to explore the joint action of successive French Presidents and German Chancellors as the driving force of European integration. The rapprochement that began in the early years after the Second World War between France and Germany, two countries that had been long-standing enemies, followed a unique path. The image of a ‘Franco-German duo’ and the pair’s actions have proved an unending source of inspiration for French and German Press cartoonists. It shows how they have experienced, perceived and illustrated this Franco-German partnership, which has continued to evolve during the turbulent history of European integration. This comparative analysis reflects the convergences and divergences within this unique pairing and demonstrates the ever-changing balance of power within the partnership. The cartoons also reveal the fact that there is often a discrepancy between official photos and the reality of the Franco-German relationship. Although the Franco-German duo and its ability to act for the organisation of Europe have at times proved fragile, with periods of tension but also of continuity, the relationship between the various West German Chancellors and French Presidents has made an often decisive contribution to the pursuit and revival of European integration. Over 400 cartoons published in the French and German press reflect the key moments in Franco-German relations and emphasise how this ‘marriage of convenience’ between two leaders has influenced the European integration process, illustrating both the successes and failures of the duo. The selected cartoons provide an often cheeky, sarcastic interpretation of the Franco-German duo, that special relationship, which, despite its periods of tension and crisis, has always bounced back and has often served as a driving force for European unification. The cartoons reflect the two leaders’ attitudes to the challenges of the European integration process, painting an often humorous but at times openly critical picture of this bilateral relationship.
