Grand Rapids City Council Approves Psychedelics Decriminalization Measure

Earlier last week, another city in the state of Michigan passed a measure that called for the decriminalization of psychedelics, including ayahuasca and psilocybin. The measure doesn’t meet activists’ expectations, however, because it doesn’t change any enforcement practices in the city.

The measure, which the city commission of Grand Rapids approved in a 5 to 2 vote, states that individuals who seek to improve…

Researchers Develop Statistical Model That Can Characterize Ketamine’s Effects on the Brain

Researchers from the Massachusetts General Hospital and the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory at MIT have developed a statistical model that can characterize how ketamine affects an individual’s brain. The research, which was published in “PLOS Computational Biology,” found that ketamine produced different effects, which means that to improve patient outcomes and better understand ketamine, a ketamine-specific model was needed. This is why the researchers designed a model based on rhythm measurements from two animal subjects and nine human subjects. The model defines the characteristic states of brain activity that occur when an individual is under ketamine anesthesia. In…
