Heavy ketamine use affects short-term memory
People who frequently take ketamine suffer from short-term memory problems, according to a study by UCL researchers. However, the study also found that infrequent and ex-users did not show such memory impairments, suggesting that memory deficits may be repaired when people quit taking the drug. The authors urge health campaigners to ensure that the growing number of ketamine users are made aware of these potentially negative effects on their health.
