Centre for Ethics, Law and Mental Health

Centre for Ethics, Law and Mental Health conducts, supports and disseminates research about mental disorders, aggressive behaviour and moral and legal responsibility in an inter-disciplinary framework. The centre is a collaboration between University of Gothenburg, The National Board of Forensic Medicine, Swedish Prison and Probation Service, and The Forensic Psychiatric Clinic, Sahlgrenska University Hospital.

The aims of the Centre are to:

  • stimulate inter-disciplinary research within the area
  • support national and international scientific exchange
  • offer education and tutoring for graduate and post-graduate students
  • interact with the governmental organisations responsible for adolescent and adult criminal offenders with mental health problems
  • inform the public about up-to-date research within the area

  • Association Between Prescription of Major Psychotropic Medications and Violent Reoffending After Prison Release
    Question:  Is the use of psychotropic medications associated with a lower risk of reoffending for violent crime among released prisoners?
    Findings:  In this cohort study of 22 275 released prisoners, 3 classes of psychotropic medications (antipsychotics, psychostimulants, and medications used for addictive disorders) were associated with statistically significant hazard ratios (0.58, 0.62, and 0.48, respectively) of violent reoffending.
    Meaning:  Evidence-based provision of psychotropic medications to released prisoners was associated with lower risk of reoffending.

Fetal and postnatal metal dysregulation in autism

"Genetic and environmental factors contribute to the etiologies of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), but evidence of specific environmental exposures and susceptibility windows is limited. Here we study monozygotic and dizygotic twins discordant for ASD to test whether fetal and postnatal metal dysregulation increases ASD risk. Using validated tooth-matrix biomarkers, we estimate pre- and post-natal exposure profiles of essential and toxic elements. Significant divergences are apparent in metal uptake between ASD cases and their control siblings, but only during discrete developmental periods. Cases have reduced uptake of essential elements manganese and zinc, and higher uptake of the neurotoxin lead. Manganese and lead are also correlated with ASD severity and autistic traits. Our study suggests that metal toxicant uptake and essential element deficiency during specific developmental windows increases ASD risk and severity, supporting the hypothesis of systemic elemental dysregulation in ASD. Independent replication in population-based studies is needed to extend these findings."
