Conducted an experiment, which aims to measure the increase in the size of the working memory under the influence of DMT dimethyltryptamine.
Objectives of the experiment consists in fixing the number of recognized dots presented in one second.
In a classic experiment by Miller in 1956, it was found that up to 7 objects size of working memory.
40 minutes before receiving 75mg DMT taken 150mg of reversible monoamine oxidase inhibitor MAOI Moclobemide, a total of Pharmahuasca - pharmacological analogue of Ayahuasca, Amazonian shamanic initiatory drink.
MAOI inhibits the metabolization of DMT, which would otherwise be metabolized by monoamine oxidase MAO.
DMT acts 3 hours, MAOI 6 hours.
DMT 75mg dose chosen because of that 50mg has no significant effect, and with 100mg there were interfered visual effects, as well as DMT act on serotonin receptors.
According to the hypothesis of quantum consciousness, of Stuart Hammeroff and Roger Penrose, DMT acts on microtubules of neurons and adds quantum bits for quantum computing, which occur in the microtubules of neurons and are responsible for the simultaneous processing of working memory elements [Lecture of Hammeroff].
During the experiment conducted EEG reading with 16-channel OpenBCI with 24-bit resolution.
In the application, the result of a preliminary experiment in which experementant changed the interval how many dots to show. In the experiments the number of dots to be in a stable range. Preliminary data indicate that there is much more guessing than 7 dots at the peak of the action of DMT. Statistics should be dialed to talk about the authenticity of this increase. On the chart black dots indicate the unmistakable guessing, red interval is the interval between the number of points shown and the number of dots that are responsible by experimentant.

"Ayahuasca is legal in many countries in South America. The United States Supreme Court has unanimously ruled in favor of the legal religious use of ayahuasca by the União do Vegetal, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has affirmedthe Santo Daime Church's freedom to use ayahuasca for religious purposes. However, ayahuasca's principally active ingredient—DMT—remains a Schedule I controlled substance."
