Psychotropic Drugs and other Substance


A psychoactive drug, psychopharmaceutical, or psychotropic is a chemical substance that crosses the blood-brain barrier and acts primarily upon the central nervous system where it affects brain function, resulting in changes in perception, mood, consciousness, cognition, and behavior. These substances may be used recreationally, to purposefully alter one's consciousness, as entheogens, for ritual, spiritual, and/or shamanic purposes, as a tool for studying or augmenting the mind, or therapeutically as medication.

Poor compliance with prescribed antidepressant regimens may undermine the medication’s effec...

Many people discussed but few followed Timothy Leary?s advice to ?tune in and turn on.? Americans nevertheless tried psychedelic drugs at an unprec...

Relaxation Therapy and Meditation in Pain Control

By: Venerable Pende Hawter

BuddhaNet: Buddhist Information and Education Network document.

Excerpt: The cause of suffering and pain and methods to overcome them have fascinated philosophers and scientists for hundreds of years. Perhaps the fascination with pain stems from the fact that pain is the inevitable by-product of life itself. Indeed, it was on seeing a sick person, an old person and a corpse that alerted the Buddha to the suffering nature of our existence and caused him to renounce his kingdom and lead the life of an ascetic in order to find a way out...

Psychotherapy : Chapter 08 - The Field of Psychotherapy

By: Hugo Münsterberg

Talking about viewing the Ocean If I take the attitude of appreciation, it would be absurd to say that this wave is composed of chemical elements which I do not see; and if I take the attitude of physical explanation, it would be equally absurd to deny that such elements are all of which the wave is made. From the one standpoint, the ocean is really excited; from the other standpoint, the molecules are moving according to the laws of hydrodynamics. If I want to understan...
