Renowned pathologist Dr Michael Baden has exclusively told that tests on Michael Jackson's brain could unlock many secrets about the performer's life as well as his death.

An examination of Jackson's brain is part of the forensic examination still underway. "The brain is like a database and these tests will reveal a lot of information like if he was beaten as a child to any small tumors or previous overdoses that he may have suffered," Baden, who recently conducted an autopsy on David Carradine, said.

"The brain results will determine if he was given improper medication and how authentic statements provided by his physicians were."

As the world waits for the toxicology results that will determine the exact cause of Jackson's death Dr Baden believes that they will not be released until the brain analysis is also complete, a process that can take "around four weeks."

It is possible that Diprivan in itself caused him to die, Baden said. "It can slow down breathing and causes blood pressure to fall and a person can die as a result but all the other drugs also mentioned like Demerol, Morphine and Methadone can also be lethal if taken in large quantities.

"It is going to be very interesting to see what all these results tell us about the precise condition Michael Jackson was in."
