dc.description.abstract Flashbacks of psychedelic drug experiences have plagued some individuals and delighted others. A common factor identified as triggering this phenomenon has been noted to be stress. This study was an initial attempt to investigate the possibility that flashbacks are a unique reaction to stressful stimuli. A movie, depicting the aftermath of car accidents, was used to induce stress while pulse rate reaction was monitored. The degree of state anxiety a person reports to be experiencing was used to get a self-report measure of the degree of stress a subject was feeling towards the movie. The degree of trait anxiety as well as base heart rate were hypothesized to make a drug user more susceptible to flashbacks. No differences were found between the flashbackers, nonflashbackers and nondrug userson all measures. en_US
