NPR Highlights Ketamine’s Relief for Mending Broken Bridges in Brain

NPR Highlights Ketamine’s Relief for Mending Broken Bridges in Brain

NPR recently ran an article by John Hamilton titled, “Ketamine May Relieve Depression By Repairing Damaged Brain Circuits,” highlighting ketamine as a treatment option for depression as it repairs damaged brain circuits.

This article is a great overview of where research currently stands with ketamine. While the anesthetic version of ketamine has already been used to treat thousands of people with depression, scientists have known relatively little about how ketamine and similar drugs affect brain circuits. In this most recent study, research suggests that ketamine triggers a two-step process that relieves depression. First, the drug somehow coaxes faulty brain circuits to function better temporarily. Then it provides a longer-term fix by restoring the synaptic connections between cells in a circuit.” ketamine Wellness Centers, in addition to several other national providers, have been treating patients, with zero serious side effects, since as early as 2010. At this point, KWC has provided well over 14,000 infusions and celebrates a success rate of over 80%.
