Δ⁹-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) produces transient psychomimetic effects in healthy volunteers, constituting a pharmacological model for psychosis. The dopaminergic antagonist haloperidol has previously been shown to reduce these effects. This placebo-controlled, cross-over study in 49 healthy, male, mild cannabis users aimed to further explore this model by(More)
The effects of drugs are not only determined by their pharmacological action, but also by user characteristics. This analysis explored the influence of personality on the differences in subjective effects in response to a standardized pharmacological challenge with the cannabinoid CB1/CB2 partial agonist Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). To express the(More)
This analysis examines the neuronal foundation of drug-induced psychomimetic symptoms by relating the severity of these symptoms to changes in functional connectivity for a range of different psychoactive compounds with varying degrees of psychomimetic effects. The repeated measures design included 323 resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging(More)
The psychomimetic effects that occur after acute administration of ketamine can constitute a model of psychosis and antipsychotic drug action. However, the optimal dose/concentration has not been established and there is a large variety in outcome measures. In this study, 36 healthy volunteers (21 males and 15 females) received infusions of S(+)-ketamine or(More)
The subjective effects of cannabis and its main psychoactive component Δ(9) -tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) have played an important part in determining the therapeutic potential of cannabinoid agonists and antagonists. The effects mainly consist of feeling high, changes in perception, feelings of relaxation and occasionally dysphoric reactions. These effects(More)
