The Bubonic Plague had a grip on the Elizabethan time period and even though the upper class had very little advantage to the plague, it was the lower classes huge disadvantage. “Only the wealthy would receive the ministrations of an Elizabethan Physician”(Alchin). The lower class didn't have simple access to seeing a “physician”.

Often times those who received these procedures never felt the same and would be classified as acting differently. While this procedure was meant for patient whom were classified as unruly, this was not always the case, in some instances, those who were classified as relatively normal or were at the very least not a problematic patient would still receive the procedure for one reason or another. for some institutions, the patients would be served plain bread, water or milk, and nothing else for breakfast.

After the fourth operation, I did not see Tibi anymore “ This was just one example of hundreds of body maiming experiments Mengele conducted, many of which were used for practice rather than meaningful testing. This specific example clearly showed the fact that Mengele did not consider the children as people at all. Another study commonly conducted was when one twin would be injected with a disease and then monitored so that the progression of the disease could be observed. If the infected twin died from the disease the other would be killed so that Mengele can conduct a comparative autopsy to see the disease’s effect on the body (Schwab, Bacchi). The experiments were cruel if not worse than labor.
How he could have died from it, is because the symptoms can stay in your body without showing symptoms. The reasons people believe Poe died from rabies is because in one of the letters Dr. Benitez says “Poe refused alcohol and could drink water only with great difficulty, rabies victims exhibit hydrophobia”. If Poe had been drinking he would have taken the alcohol, this shows he may have had something else. Another thing that Dr. Benitez said was “there was no evidence of a bite but some rabies victims don’t remember being bitten”. This shows that he could have been bitten a long time ago and couldn’t remember.
Liquefaction of the brain is a process where the brain begins to generate liquids because of the breakdown of its cells and lipids. With this being said, it has been extremely difficult for scientists to discover a way to accurately estimate the time since death of a specimen. It is known that brain fluid is produced once the specimen has passed away; however, why it is produced cannot be directly answered. The position that the body is in after death may also be a leading factor in the amount of brain

Amnesia is the general term for a condition in which memory either stored memories or the process of committing something to memory is disturbed or lost. Amnesia may result either from organic or neurological causes or damage to the brain through physical injury, neurological disease or the use of certain drugs. It could also come from functional or psychogenic causes such as mental disorder, post-traumatic stress or psychological defense mechanisms. Many kinds of amnesia are associated with damage to the hippocampus and related areas of the brain which are used in the encoding, storage and retrieval of memories. If there is a blockage in the pathways along which information travels during the processes of memory encoding or retrieval, or if

The only problem with this medicine was it didn’t help stop the disease only limit or tolerate the pain, so the patient was still very vulnerable to the disease. Robert E.
