Book Description

The publication Behavioral Neurobiology of Psychedelic Substances (PDF) compiles the most recent findings from fundamental and clinical studies that investigate the effects and underlying mechanisms of psychedelic drugs. Psilocybin, LSD, and mescaline are some examples of substances that belong to this category of drugs. Regardless of the structural distinctions between them, these chemicals produce quite similar effects in humans and have the same mode of action. The phenomenology level, the clinical level, and the fundamental neurobiological mechanism level are all considered in relation to the similarities that exist among the chemicals that belong to this family. To the greatest degree possible, contributions link the clinical and preclinical findings of different species to one another. This book discusses not just the potential health hazards of ingesting these medications but also the prospective advantages to one’s health that may be connected with the usage of these and other related chemicals.
