Ecstasy a.k.a. MDMA or Methylenedioxymethamphetamine is a type of psychoactive drug that makes people feels more awake and alert. It also changes the perception of reality of a person. Many side effects of ecstasy have been reported, such as insomnia, kidney failure, dehydration, paranoid, hallucinations, etc. However there are still a lot of people curious of the ecstasy effect.
Professor Keith Laws and Professor Fabrizio Schifano from University of Hertfordshire will be giving a talk titled “Can taking ecstasy once damage your memory?” The talk will be given on October 21 at the university’s Health and Human Sciences Research Institute Showcase. They will talk about how consumption of ecstasy will affect short- and long-term memory loss, even if it is just once.
Perhaps people who don’t remember things are happier.
