> "For the first time we find that psilocybin works differently from conventional antidepressants - making the brain more flexible and fluid, and less entrenched in the negative thinking patterns associated with depression," said David Nutt, DM, head of the Imperial Centre for Psychedelic Research. "This supports our initial predictions and confirms psilocybin could be a real alternative approach to depression treatments."

I think the key here is the re-wiring of neural pathways, as at times when I have felt great effect from my meds, is when they open up a deeply empathetic side to me. I don't get 'manic', but very emotional and a bit teary about music, feeling very good around people,very 'warm', can easily laugh, very pro-social, and it seems to very much be about connection. That seems to often be the opposite of what we are taught here in N. America, to be 'self sufficient', not rely on anyone else, each to their own, etc.
