“Effets psycho-physiologiques de la Psilocybine”. 
Comptes rendus des séances de l'Académie des Sciences. 1958 Oct;247:1235-1238.
10 mg. doses of Psilocybin were given orally or sublingually to 4 normal subjects and 14 patients with various mental diseases, including schizophrenia. Psilocybin caused hallucinations and dream-like states, recall of affective memories and changes of mood. These effects varied from case to case.

Thus, Psilocybin is not a psychotropic agent but, like hashish, mescaline and LSD, belongs to the group of substances for which the authors suggest the name "psychodysleptics". The somatic effects of Psilocybin will be reported later.
