Psychedelic drugs

The brains of adults under the influence of psychedelic drugs seem to act like those of infants and young children when developing neural connections.

The investigation took a gander at how mind-altering chemicals affect brain synapses in rats. This latest medical study found psychedelic chemicals made the brain more “plastic,” causing brain cells to develop more connections.

Research says

Additionally, neuroscientists say the brains of young children effectively shaped to form new connections. That pliability tends to blur as we age, while other research has discovered adult brains also seem to go into a similar infant like condition of association making when dreaming.

Few years back scientists at Imperial College London said that for infants normally the brain works on independent networks performing separate functions such as vision, movement and hearing, under LSD drug the separateness of these networks breaks down, leading to a more unified system.

At the end of the day, the brains of dreamers and trippers looked more like those of infants and young children than those of concentrated, hard-working adults.
