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.

Hallucinogenic Drug-Induced Behavior Under Sensory Attenuation. Prediction of Response to Psilocybin

Hallucinogenic Drug-Induced Behavior Under Sensory Attenuation. Prediction of Response to Psilocybin

  1. methylman251
    Eight "stable" and four "variable" college-age subjects were given 160μg/kg psilocybin under conditions of sensory attenuation. Stability was defined by the magnitude of the standard deviation on handwriting area under predrug conditions.
    Only the variable subjects, our large-standard deviants, responded to the drug with a significant decrease in mean pulse rate and increase in handwriting area. They also reported consistently more intense experiences under psilocybin than the small-standard deviants. The degree of variability on perceptual-behavioral measures, such as the SD on handwriting area, is significantly related to, and therefore a predictor of, the intensity of the ensuing drug-induced experience.
