SWITCHED OFF EMOTIONS REDUCE ANXIETY
Ecstasy reduces the activity of the limbic system, which regulates emotions and behaviour, and nerve communication between the temporal and frontal lobes. The activity is unusually high in patients with anxiety, and when the level is reduced,
anxiety symptoms are curbed. Moreover, ecstasy improves the communication between the centre of fear (amygdala) and the centre of memory (hippocampus), which is weak in people with PTSD.
