Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD-25) and Ego Functions

Abstract

A series of psychological studies with lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD-25) performed by myself and my associates with several hundred “normal” human subjects are described. The experimental data are discussed in relation to psychoanalytic ego psychology with an effort to demonstrate the usefulness of this theoretical model in understanding the effects of LSD. The field of discussion is also extended by introducing some tentative theoretical formulations which attempt to correlate certain psychological and physiological phenomena associated with LSD.
