Dimethyltryptamine: Endogenous Role and Therapeutic Potential

Poster

N, N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is an indole alkaloid produced by a number of plants and animals, including humans. Its psychoactive effects were first described in 1956 by Stephen Szára, but have been exploited for centuries by South American indigenous populations in the form of ayahuasca. In the present review, we assess the state of the art regarding a putative role for endogenous DMT and potential clinical applications of ayahuasca and DMT. A review assessing the pharmacological profile of DMT and its clinical effects in humans was performed using the PubMed data base until 5 August 2018 with the words: ayahuasca and N,N-dimethyltryptamine. While the role of endo- genous DMT remains unclear, ayahuasca has promising results in anxiety, depression and sub- stance dependence. Since ayahuasca has a good safety profile, it is crucial to conduct further research aimed at developing new treatments for psychiatric disorders.

Psilocybin-Assisted Treatment of Alcohol Use Disorder: Historical Context and Current Clinical Research

Initially seen as a way to safely induce a delirium tremens-like experience, LSD was tested in clinical trials and used in treatment programs for thousands of patients through the early 1970s, resulting in substantial but inconclusive evidence for its effectiveness. With increasing restriction of access to psychedelics for reach purposes, LSD research ceased in the […]

Mapping out the Subjective Effects of Psychoactive Drugs Using Natural Language Processing

It is notoriously difficult to study the effects of psychoactive drugs in the laboratory. Existing studies can be limited by relatively small sample sizes, and many drugs have not yet been investigated with human subjects. By contrast, descriptions of drug effects abound online. In fact, the subjective effects of almost every psychoactive drug in existence have been documented by countless users through natural language reports freely accessible on the internet. Until recently, it was difficult to gain significant insights from […]

Self-Care Practices with Psychedelics

The main objective of this research is to understand and to describe to what extent the use of psychedelic substances constitutes a practice of self-care to the users. With this study we want to contribute to the comprehension of the role of psychedelics in psychotherapy since we intend to explore whether these substances are used as a form of compensation for psychological mechanisms or processes. Due to the current lack of research about psychedelics in Portugal, along with the frequently […]
