Psychologists call this mechanism activeinhibition (cf. MacLeod, 2007
Active inhibition is the filter that prevents our minds from being constantly flooded with memories and allows us to focus. It acts as a barrier between our long term memories and our immediate present.
Is the filter behind active inhibition really active or is it passive? What is the actual physiological mechanism?

A known copy (104/reaction) of Oncorhynchus keta (O. keta) was added in the DNAse and RNAse free water and the Cq value obtained acted as a reference point. If the Cq value of a wastewater sample increases compared to the reference Cq value, the sample is considered to have PCR inhibitors.
Was this RNA or DNA that was spiked in?
- O. Keta is a salmon fish
- The reference cited here (Haugland et al., 2005) uses a DNA standard of O.keta 16s rRNA gene
