Research Review: How Ketamine Induces Certain Brainwaves

A new (May 2024) study from MIT, along with contributions from researchers across Boston, has illuminated how ketamine influences brain activity at the molecular level. The researchers found that ketamine triggers gamma oscillations at all doses, and at higher doses, these are intermittently interrupted by slow-delta oscillations.

13 Nushama Practices for Safe Psychedelic Therapy

As the field of psychedelic therapy continues to gain traction, it is becoming increasingly important for practitioners to ensure their treatments are safe and effective. Nushama is at the forefront of this conversation, constantly putting its members first and determining the best ways to care for them, from our treatment to year-round programming. Here are thirteen practices we’ve identified essential for providing our members the highest quality care.

The Neuroscience of Ketamine

The human brain is a complex organ that is responsible for our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is made up of billions of interconnected neurons that communicate with each other through synapses. Neurotransmitters, the chemical messengers of the brain, play a crucial role in this communication process…

Ketamine Dosing Explained: Uses for Anesthesia, Pain, and Psychedelic Therapy

When it comes to ketamine, dosing is not a one-size-fits-all approach. The transformational molecule is used for various purposes, from pain relief and anesthesia to the emerging field of psychedelic therapy. Let’s dive into the world of ketamine dosing, its effects at different doses, and, more specifically, the dosing used for ketamine-assisted therapy at Nushama.
