New Mechanism for Ketamine!

It is exciting when the things that we know work are better understood as to why they

work! Previously Ketamine has been thought to have 8 different mechanisms of action, now the downstream effects of these mechanisms are being further elucidated.

NMDA receptor actions of Ketamine has long been known but now new research is showing that downstream effects of this are increased potassium channels in areas of the brain that are implicated in mood disorders.
