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.

Interpretation of visual space under drug-induced ergotropic and trophotropic arousal

Interpretation of visual space under drug-induced ergotropic and trophotropic arousal

  1. methylman251
    It was found that ergotropic arousal inducing drugs, such as psilocybin, a Ditran®-type ‘glycolate’ andd-amphet-amine, significantly lower human spatial distortion thresholds, i.e. these drugs, interfere with counter-adaptation to optical distortion, or the expectation to see the world undistorted. The trophotropic arousal inducing chlorpromazine® on the other hand promotes such counter-adaptation, i.e. the optimization of visual information. Optimization is independent from the rat at which the distorting stimulus is presented.
    Optimization is regarded here as a cortical (perceptual-behavioral) interpretive process while interference with and promotion of the optimization are subcortical influences.
