Brain study points to 'sixth sense' | Science Blog

Ok, let's get this straight....

We have a sixth sense.

The part of the brain that is responsible for it is near the pineal gland, ie: where all the old scifi shows mentioned the third eye being.

The sixth sense allowed people to sense the upcoming danger before there were signs (esp?).

Dopamine trains that region of the brain.

marijuana increases your level of dopamine.

LSD activates dopamine-sensitive areas of the brain.

and mescaline is structurally similar to dopamine.

So, does this mean that the common drugs that make you think you have heightened senses actually increases your "extrasensory" perception?
