    I’m breaking this news here (even though nobody reads ‘Know’ comments).

    Recent research proves NMDA receptors on dopamine neurons in the brain’s basal ganglia convert regular activities into habits.

    Ketamine inhibits the activity of NMDA. So does Ibogaine – which goes a long way to explain its internationally recognized utility in the treatment of addiction.

    Addiction is habitual behavior. Depression is a little more complicated, but a big part of it is habitual mental “behavior” or habitual negative ways of thinking. Ketamine’s antidepressent effect is probably a result of a liberation from negative mental ‘habits’ due to inhibition of NMDA activity.

    Personally, suffering from depression, I have recently taken the opportunity to test this hypothesis, and was not impressed with the results. I think (also based on my own research) recent developments in Psilocybin-based treatments are more promising.
