Meth interrupts dopamine & lowers pleasurable feelings especially regarding safety and security. Paranoia, depression, uninhibited aggression, delusions of persecution (people are out to get them), suicidal thoughts...

Brain scans of meth users show chemical changes rather than actual physical damage.




Iím assuming the top chemical signatures must be taken from live individuals.

And Iím also assuming the bottom is CTE damage. From dead people.

Apples. Oranges.

Huh? A brain scan is a brain scan.

The bottom images look like typical CTE affected brains and only retrieved from cadavers and sliced.

Letís get the exact same images from chronic meth and dust abusers.

Chronic roid guys too.

As well as the other contact sports. Hockey. Boxing. MMA.

you are right and wrong, the slides show 2 different imaging technologies both of which are highlighting different processes in living brains.

the top slide is an FMRI looking a dopamine use so its simply highlighting where and how much dopamine is being used in the brain.

the lower slide is a PET scan looking for a radioactive isotope injected into the subject, this marker will bind with the tau protein which is a marker of CTE.

the lower image has issues i believe, the "holes" in the nfl brain images only show lack of the isotope and not actual brain tissue holes. the control images of a normal brain show a general low level of the isotope as opposed the the other images which are scaled to only show the brightest regions. i would like to see these images both scaled the same instead of what appears to be an attempt to make the nfl brain scans appear severely damaged (full of holes) compared to the control.

there is also no evidence yet that this PET scan is accurate at this point it is only anecdotal but it definitely shows some promise

quick edit the dopamine test is also a pet scan or a spect scan, but the gist is still true 2 totally different things in the brain are being imaged.
