Journal of Psychoactive Drugs
Benjamin Thomas


This article reviews the literature and current information on the psychoactive flora of Papua New Guinea. The use of psychoactive plants in Papua New Guinea has often been reported in the literature. However, most of these species are still poorly understood. It is recommended in this article that more systematic and multidisciplinary research is required on the psychoactive flora of Papua New Guinea. This rsearch has the potential for the discovery and understanding of new psychoactive drugs.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Cell Atlas Along the Gut-Brain Axis

Profiling cells along the gut-brain axis at the single cell level will provide unique information for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and insights into how changes in the map underlie health and disease of the GI system and its crosstalk with the brain. Disocver the latest research on single cell analysis of the gut-brain axis here.
