And anyone who can tell me where I got their names gets a vial of human adrenochrome.
In the test tube, it is easy to change adrenalin to a compound called "adrenochrome."
However, since 1954, when this suggestion was first made, all attempts to locate adrenochrome or other abnormal metabolites of adrenalin in mental patients have failed.
Interestingly enough, when adrenochrome is injected into normal human subjects, temporary psychotic states resembling those of mental illness are produced.
This is an abnormal metabolite, since it does not seem that adrenalin in the body normally passes through the adrenochrome stage.
