L is for LSD

Former Gadget/Technology blog now turned drug, and art blog Gizmodo shared an article about LSD being an aid in treating addictions (as in all of them).


money quote from the Nature article:

"Psychedelics probably work in addiction by making the brain function more chaotically for a period - a bit like shaking up a snow globe - weakening reinforced brain connections and dynamics."

Taking LSD (or other hallucinogens) is to your brain like shaking is to a snow globe.

  2. Hmm, shaking up a snowglobe... interesting analogy, but I'm not sure I agree.
