Does anyone know if there is a connection between LSD/psilocybin
administration and the onset of clinical depression.  I wonder if, like how
cocaine depletes the dopamine system, LSD can deplete the brain of
serotonin.  Is this possible?

If our actions are interfered with -- say, by a prefrontal lobotomy --
then our capacity for handling information is seriously impaired and
we lack the necessary "verve" to act out our wishes.
