1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    Abstract
    Is another name for hallucinogens really needed? This chapter argues that the names used in the past have largely lost their usefulness and may be even misleading, and that recent advances in the neurosciences and cognitive sciences have created opportunities for using hallucinogens as tools in attacking the supreme mystery: How does the brain work? In this quest, the author starts with a brief review of the past 35 to 40 years of use of these drugs in which several distinct trends, referred to as eras, can be distinguished. Although the eras are overlapping, some with clear beginnings and fading trails, others survive today to some extent in different contexts.
