A note on some therapeutic implications of the mescaline-induced state
- 55 Downloads
The clinical and laboratory data following the inections of mescaline sulfate and chlorpromazine hydrochloride are briefly reported. The relative importance of each drug, the physiological mechanisms involved, and the psychodynamic factors implicated in the clinical remissions are now being intensively investigated under rigidly controlled conditions.
