Short report of society proceedings. . "From his studies with indwelling electrodes, the author found that while both lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and amphetamine caused electrocortical alerting, the LSD effect depended much more on environmental stimulation. Experiments using conditioning techniques seemed to show that while amphetamine acted directly on the midbrain centres, LSD acted via those collaterals from the sensory pathways which provided the affective link with the reticular activating system - and this would account for the sensory distortions of LSD. Such work did not exclude effects elsewhere in the central nervous system (for example, Baldwin had shown links between LSD and the temporal lobes)."
