Loud music + ecstacy is worse for your brain than ecstacy alone?

Original link: http://healthandfitness.sympatico.ms...etect=&abc=abc

WEDNESDAY, Feb. 22 (HealthDay News) - Research with hard-rockin' rats suggests that loud music extends the harmful brain effects of the club drug ecstasy for up to five days.

Researchers in Italy found that an ecstasy-linked dampening of the rats' brain activity lasted long after the rodents were given the drug if they also exposed to music of 95 decibels, the maximum noise intensity permitted by law in Italian nightclubs.

If the rats weren't exposed to loud music, the drug's effects wore off within a day.

During the experiment, the team at the Institute of Neurological Science in Catanzaro monitored the rats' electrocortical activity (EcoG spectrum) using electrodes placed on the rodents' skulls. The EcoG spectrum was recorded from 60 minutes before the rats were given ecstasy and the music began, then again for up to five days after the music had been turned off.

Without music, a low dose (3mg/kg) of ecstasy did not modify the rats' brain activity any more than a dose of saline solution. However, loud music prompted significant changes in the brain activity of rats who received a low dose of the drug.

A high dose (6mg/kg) of ecstasy alone caused a reduction in the rats' brain activity and that effect was enhanced when loud music was played and lasted for up to five days. The brain activity of rats that received a high dose of the drug but were not exposed to loud music returned to normal within a day.

Rats that received saline solution and were exposed to loud music showed no changes in brain activity.

^h8or!!!!!

anyways, this experiment honestly doesn't prove much of anything. needs human testing to prove any kind of correlation. the problem is the conscious awareness of the fact that you took drugs, and that you chose to listen to loud music removes significant stress factors. think about it, the rats don't know they are high, so that's a significant stressor (ie the rat's brain probably just registers that it's been poisoned, which it has when you think about it), and it's a pretty well known fact that sick or poisoned animals will naturally seek out a quiet, dark and hidden place to conceal themselves while they recover, so the fact that the rat wasn't able to get to a quiet spot is another stressor. neither of these stressors apply the same in humans due to conscious awareness of the situation and the exercising of choice.
