“Allgemeine Gesichtspunkte zur Pharmakopsychiatrie”. 
Neuro-Psychopharmacology. Proceedings of the 1st International Congress of Neuro-Psychopharmacology, Rome, September 1958. 1959;p61-70.
The authors review the importance in pharmacopsychiatry of fantastic neuroplegic and psychotonic agents. Due to their own experiences and literature, they attribute a general and a specific effect to every psychotropic substance. The reaction of these effects on the subject leads to a trial to solve the newly created general situation. . The effect of LSD - a representative of fantastic agents - is described. The authors emphasize that on the brain of healthy subjects, LSD acts on those structures where damage in cerebro-pathologic cases produces schizoprenia-like symptoms. It concerns mainly disorders of the thalamocortico and thalamocommissural systems.
