ah ha – a connection between: ADHD exploratory thinking and psilocybin – that’s shrooms right? Funny thing is shrooms never did much for me although I had experiences with acid a few times. Always thought shrooms were too weak: maybe I was already there. “DMN-TPN inverse coupling is decreased in patients with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (Hoekzema et al., 2013) and increased after administration of the attention-enhancers modafinil (Schmaal et al., 2013) and nicotine (Cole et al., 2010). Thus, it is too simplistic to regard increased BOLD signal in the DMN as a correlate of freely-wandering cognition, and decreased inverse coupling between the DMN and TPN is probably a more informative index of this. As will be discussed later, this point is reinforced by findings that inverse coupling between the DMN and TPNs is decreased under psilocybin, and DMN activity and connectivity is also decreased. This is important because unconstrained, explorative thinking is a hallmark of the psychedelic state”

maybe ADHD is being on a permanent trip. That’s a good explanation as any for ongoing functional / cognitive / social issues.
