I do not like the cone of shame.

I am cat sitting for a professor; the cat has a sore on her tail and won't stop worrying it. After a vet trip (antibiotics, 5 days of pain medicine, and the addition of a cone), it keeps scabbing over ... until she catches it and bites the scab off. How do I keep her from totally destroying her tail in the next week? [more inside]

BrainScan filter

Is it possible to tell the difference between an old, long-standing injury and a more recent injury to the brain on a brain scan? Would a particular type of brain scan (fMRI as opposed to CAT scan) be better able to reveal the difference between the two? This question would be pertinent to the Peter Braunstein case: earlier in the news coverage, they showed Braunstein's brain scan on television, because the defense claims that the decreased activity shown in the frontal region is consistent with schizophrenia. However, I understand Braunstein hit his head while in custody, and I'm thinking that could cause a similar result on the brain scan. I'm also wondering, could a brain scan show whether he got dropped on his head when he was a baby and/or all three possible conditions and when, approximately, they developed?
