Ecstasy for Parkinsons? 

Contrary to (somewhat dubious) previous studies and certainly to logic, a new study indicates that amphetamines, particularly MDMA, or Ecstasy, may help treat the symptoms of Parkinsons disease. In a really fascinating study, researchers found that the drugs are acting somewhere besides DA receptors to have these effects. This puts forth all kinds of new questions about how amphetamines work, and what they may do long-term. I'm very interested to see how this pans out.
