  • SummaryThe production of head-twitches in mice appears to be a suitable laboratory test for predicting whether a compound is likely to be hallucinogenic in man. This is based on the following findings:1.With the exception of acetyl-lysergic acid diethylamide and nalorphine, hallucinogenic drugs induced head-twitches in mice.2.Chemically related compounds which are not hallucinogenic did not induce head-twitches with the exception of 5-HTP, ergometrine, α-ethylmescaline and DMPE. It is suggested… CONTINUE READING
