- An episode of mania following self-reported ingestion of psilocybin mushrooms in a woman previously not diagnosed with bipolar disorder: A case report (n=1, case report, family did have bipolar history)
- Effectiveness of Psilocybin on Depression: A Qualitative Study (n=10, interviews, nothing really new)
- Ketamine, but not fluoxetine, rapidly rescues corticosterone-induced impairments on glucocorticoid receptor and dendritic branching in the hippocampus of mice (Ketamine, but not fluoxetine, reduces impairment of glucocorticoid receptor and dendritic branching)
- Validation of the McIntyre And Rosenblat Rapid Response Scale (MARRRS) in Adults with Treatment-Resistant Depression Receiving Intravenous Ketamine Treatment (validation of depression-scale with IV ketamine)
- Molecular mechanisms underlying the antidepressant actions of arketamine: beyond the NMDA receptor (review, “unlikely that NMDAR plays a major role in the antidepressant action of (R,S)-ketamine and its enantiomers, although the precise molecular mechanisms underlying antidepressant actions of (R,S)-ketamine and its enantiomers remain unclear“)
- Effects of treatment refractoriness and brain-derived neurotrophic factor Val66Met polymorphism on antidepressant response to low-dose ketamine infusion (n=71, 35mg/70kg (or lower) ketamine, significant differences between groups)
- New insights into the clinical and nonclinical effects of psychedelic substances: an integrative review (review, pre-print)
- Surface-Eroding Drug Delivery Films for Sequential and/or Intermittent Release of Psychoactive Drugs (thesis, generating films that slowly release psychedelics – interesting)
- Antidepressant efficacy of oral ketamine treatment (thesis)
- Role of acute social stress in the rewarding effects of MDMA in adolescent mice (in mice, “… findings indicate that social defeat induces an increase in the rewarding effect of MDMA, suggesting that this type of stress is a potential factor in the development of MDMA addiction.”)
- Ecstasy (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine): cardiovascular effects and mechanisms (review, highlights (cardiovascular) dangers of MDMA)
- Psychedelic Assisted Interventions with Criminal Justice Involved Populations: Food for Thought or a Bad Trip? (overview for criminology audience)
