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
The effects of LSD on normal subjects and psychotic patients are reported. Psychotic phenomena and alterations of the ANS were observed. The psychotic phenomena were predominantly schizophrenia-like symptoms that were manifested in disturbances of thought and speech, changes in affect, mood and perception, production of hallucinations and delusions, depersonaiization and changes in behavior. - LSD produced only slight changes in the EEG, principally increased alpha rhythm. Rorschach tests showed abnormalities principally of the schizophrenic or paranoic type. Concrete-abstract thinking tests showed responses similar to those obtained in schizophrenic patients.
