Behavioral Neurobiology of Psychedelic Drugs (PDF) brings together the latest fundamental and clinical research examining the effects and underlying mechanisms of psychedelic drugs. Examples of drugs within this group include psilocybin, LSD and mescaline. Irrespective of their structural differences, these compounds exceptionally similar experiences in humans and share a common mechanism of action. Commonalities among the substances in this family are addressed both at the phenomenological  and the clinical level and at the basic neurobiological mechanism level. To the extent possible, contributions associate the clinical and preclinical findings to one another across species. The volume mentions both the risks associated with the use of these drugs and the possible medical benefits that might be linked with these and related compounds.
