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.

Linking Out-of-Body Experience and Self Processing to Mental Own-Body Imagery at the Temporoparietal

Linking Out-of-Body Experience and Self Processing to Mental Own-Body Imagery at the Temporoparietal

  1. Crazy Insane Sanity
    This study demonstrates that disruption of the temporoparietal junction results in out-of-body experiences (which has profound implications in understanding cognition and the mind-body connection).

    I'm curious as to how certain drugs (i.e. dissociatives) may disrupt function in this area.
