The Neuroscience of Time

I always thought that the concept of drug-induced time distortion was something that deserved a tad more research allocation. I read a paper a few months ago about how unmodulated SRI drugs (non-selective, mind you) can actually make time seem to flow at most 50% faster when in extremely high concentrations the blood stream. Sort of makes me wonder if the inhibitory properties of serotonin as a neurotransmitter actually slow the mind down enough to generate a sort of relativity effect with the mind operating at a slower pace than normal, making external occurances seem a whole deal faster.

Great read, great topic.
