Effective connectivity changes in LSD-induced altered states of consciousness in humans Katrin H. Preller, Adeel Razib, Peter Zeidman, Philipp Stämpflif, Karl J. Friston, and Franz X. Vollenweider Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences ,· January 2019 DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1815129116 Abstract : Psychedelics exert unique effects on human consciousness. The thalamic filter model suggests that core effects of psychedelics may result from gating deficits, based on a disintegration of information processing within cortico–striato–thalamo-cortical (CSTC) feedback loops. To test this hypothesis, we characterized changes in directed (effective) connectivity between selected CTSC regions after acute administration of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), and after pretreatment with Ketanserin (a selective serotonin [...]
