Sam Posted July 12, 2012 Report Share Posted July 12, 2012 It seems to me that if you get HPPD during a short period of time, you are more likely to improve faster than if it took you longer to develope it. The latest research indicates that HPPD is caused by the downregulation of GABA receptors in visual cortex of the brain. This interupts with sensory gating because it prevents inhibitury neurons from doing their job. Basically, when you are on psychedelics, there is an excess of neurotransmitters released in your brain. As a result, your brain learns to deal with this by reducing the amount of receptors you have so the neurostrasmitters from the psychedilics have lesser affect on your brain. I guess if you get HPPD after only a few uses of hallucinogens, that means that your brain regulates receptors faster than people who take a long time to develope HPPD. It makes sense that if your brain adapted quickly and downregulated your receptor, it would also adapt quickly by upregulating them and therefore reducing or eliminating HPPD symptoms. By the way I am no expert and I am just posting this to see what others know about this topic. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
