A scientific approach to Ketamine Assisted Therapy

Ketamine For Depression

Depression is common and can be expressed in a variety of symptoms. In those suffering from depression, brain cells can decrease in size, connections between brain cells can be dysfunctional, and some brain networks such as the default mode network can be overactive. These changes reflect the often negative self-focused ruminative thought patterns that can occur in those who suffer from depression. Ketamine can rapidly and safely reverse these changes. Ketamine assisted therapy has been shown to lead to long-lasting changes in many people suffering from symptoms of depression.
