The government backed scientists produced pictures of brains with low serotonin and said this was because they'd taken E. Low serotonin was evidence of "brain damage" and the reason why people were "depressed".

It now turns out that there are people who have taken E over 1000 times who show more serotonin in brain pictures than people who've never taken it.

Well, it's actually pretty thoroughly established that MDMA works by releasing and inhibiting the reuptake of serotonin and dopamine. That's not just the result of a government-backed study; that's just what scientific examinations have shown. In fact, Dancesafe has a nice little slide show that demonstrates exactly what MDMA does to the brain. And the hangover is due to a) reduced serotonin and dopamine levels and b) the fact that MDMA is pretty hard on your body. It's not an increased tolerance to serotonin - I don't think you can actually increase or decrease your tolerance to that neurotransmitter. It's the fact that you have significantly less serotonin in your system than you did before taking the drug - hence the whole postloading thing, so you can reestablish the balance MDMA upset as quickly as possible.

In any case, yeah, psilocin doesn't act in a way remotely similar to MDMA in the brain. They're not related chemically, and they don't do the same things.

I indulged in mushrooms a lot early this year. Every weekend... After a perticularly bad trip i had some issues with irational anxieties and some other wierd stuff. Ive worked these problems out myself and they no longer bother me. I was really worried about my mental health for a while tho.

Whether shrooms caused it, brought it out early, or was not connected at all im not sure, im pretty sure shrooming evrey weekend didnt help.

Ya, actuially after everything I've read about mushrooms, I'm more concerned with driving my car and sniffing all those (toxic?) fumes that our vehicles put out. Like you said LOPHO.MP chemicals being used as preserviatives in our food. Even deoderant I'm more concerned about then mushrooms. They believe that arisol deoderant may be one cause of alztimers. The aluminum in it screwes up the brain.
