In recent years, Yale researchers have mapped the mechanism by which ketamine works: It blocks the N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) receptor, operating on the glutamate pathway in the brain in a way that appears to restore synapse connections that may have deteriorated under stress and depression. By blocking one glutamate receptor, the drug actually causes a release of glutamate by other receptors and appears to increase the neuroplasticity of the brain.

If there's one thing I really need, it's more neuroplasticity! I see it also has potential to help treat alcohol dependency.

Wonder how a k-hole, as they have been called, would affect someone with ptsd.
