HPPD Research Study

After five years of recruitment efforts which involved contact by phone, email and regular mail to thousands of researchers, the Neurosensory Research Foundation (NRF) was successful in making contact with renoun Neuropsychiatrist from one of if not the most prestigious universities in Australia willing to accept the torch of HPPD research passed down from Dr. Henry Abraham to him. At the present time, the identity of the researcher and the location where the study is to be conducted must remain confidential to the general public until we are directed otherwise. However, arrangements can be made under confidentiality agreement to release study details to major donors.

As far as donations are concerned, to date, the Neurosensory Research Foundation has raised $50,000 which has been matched by the University lending it’s insturmentation, facilities and resources to help us and while this amount may seem very generous, it is barely enough to afford the expertise of one researcher able to interpert test results. This is why, as the only exisiting 501c3 non profit dedicated to solving Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder, the NRF is doing everything it can to fund this one of a kind study, the caliber of which has never been attmpted before and why we need your support.

Touching back on confidentiality, full details of the study canot be released but we are privilaged to share the basic framework of tests to be conducted.

1. Functional Magentic Resonance Imagin (FMRI)
FMRI is to be used to measure changes in brain activity

2. Magnetoencephalography (MEG) & Electroencephalogram (EEG)
MEG & EEG to be used to determine the pathophysilogical mechanisms of HPPD.

3. Positron Emmision Tomography (PET)
PET Scan to be used to quantify 5-HT2 seratonin receptor activity.

4. To investigate the involvement of the immune system in HPPD.

5. To determine the changes in gene expression as a result of epigenetic modulation in HPPD patients.

Again details of the above must remain confidential but can be released to funders willing to support this research meeting a minimum threshold of $50,000 under the provision of a signed confidentiality agreement.

General donations can be made via PayPal here. While it is understod it can be frustrating to donate to something without disclosing all details, failure to adhere to the researcher’s instructions can result in the study being shut down altogether. Your understanding and support is most appreciated.

In conclusion, there are case studies of HPPD going back more than sixty five years and in all that time, very little has been done to fully understand the neurological changes which occur in a patient unlucky to have acquired Hallucinogen Persistenting Perception Disorder. Please support our work so people who have essentially tripped yet never returned, who suffer the profound effects of this neurovisual disorder can finally come home and return to a state of normalcy.

Thank you
