Default Friday Thread: What Ecstasy Does to Octopuses

just a bit of fun for the weekend.

What Ecstasy Does to Octopuses

Despite their wacky brains, these intelligent animals seem to respond to the drug in a very similar way to humans.

Next, she dosed the animals with ecstasy. Again, there’s no precedent for this, but researchers often anesthetize octopuses by dunking them in ethanol—a humane procedure with no lasting side effects. So Dölen and Edsinger submerged their octopuses in an MDMA solution, allowing them to absorb the drug through their gills. At first they used too high a dose, and the animals “freaked out and did all these color changes,” Dölen says. But once the team found a more suitable dose, the animals behaved more calmly—and more sociably.
