You should cross post this in /v/science

I think @thebuddha would enjoy this paper.

I'm reading through the paper and it's stuff I've read about before, but not at this level.

I'm not a biochemist. So, I did some searching to see if I could first decide if it was worth reading. It appears positively cited in 11 other papers, all in high impact journals. The lead author has a Wikipedia page. The authors both attended reputable academic institutions and have other notable achievements.

Which is to say, I'm inclined to have a good degree of confidence in the paper. More than that, I shan't speculate.

From what little I know already, adrenocrome is pretty potent stuff and has very little study devoted to it. I am not qualified to opine on the reasonings for this.

So, as I go through the paper, it's interesting but I'm not seeing anything ground shaking. I may very well be missing something, as this is not my domain. Both authors are medical doctors and one has a Ph.D. in biochemistry.

Given the nature of this sub, I've chosen my verbiage with care. If there's something specific, I do have a medical doctor whom I can email to see if they have any insight.

First, thank you for verifying that this paper is legit, and second, I value your input. I believe this research is instrumental in understanding much of what we're witnessing today, especially since this research was first conducted in the 50s. How far along is this research today if it's being conducted underground because it has been stymied in an open environment? Which leads me to wonder if Darpa or other military divisions are continuing this research in private laboratories with unwilling subjects? MK Ultra comes to mind, and instances where people reported hearing voices. So, are they focused on experimenting on schizophrenics and/or using biotech to induce schizophrenia? I believe this is just the tip of the iceberg and can lead to many answers if we dig with brains and not brawn.
