Dear Erowid Readers: We're a small nonprofit that runs the top drug information website in the world. We have only 4 staff but serve 12 million users, and have costs like any big website: servers, power, office space, programs, and staff. To protect our independence, we don't run ads or take government funds. If everyone reading this gave $3, our fundraising would be done today. If Erowid is useful to you, take a minute to keep it online and ad-free another year!

Abstract
In 7 of 12 normal subjects 40-60 mcg. LSD orally produced autonomic, psychic and EEG responses. In 4 subjects only 1 or 2 of these responses were observed. In 1 case LSD had no effect. The effects are considered to be an expression of neuronic hyperexcitability (shortening of refractory period) and a reduction in the "filtering" of impulses through nervous centers.
