    MDMA-Assisted Psychotherapy for Treatment of PTSD: Results from US Pilot Study Dr. Mithoefer reports data from the completed, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy in 21 subjects with treatment-resistant Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and on the subsequent long-term follow up of these subjects more than 1 year after the study's completion. He also describes the design and progress of a dose-response MDMA-assisted psychotherapy study in US war veterans that he expects to complete in 2011. Preliminary results suggest long-term efficacy of the treatment after more than one year after study completion. Case reports indicate that psychiatrists administered MDMA as a catalyst to psychotherapy prior to its criminalization in 1985. This clinical trial was the first to be sponsored by MAPS to evaluate the safety and efficacy of MDMA as a therapeutic adjunct and has been published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology More than 60% of PTSD patients are refractory to both psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. 21 subjects with chronic PTSD were randomly assigned to either psychotherapy with concomitant MDMA or an inactive placebo group. Both groups received preparatory and integrative non-drug psychotherapy. The primary outcome measure was the Clinician Administered PTSD Scale (CAPS) administered by a blinded independent rater. CAPS scores decreased significantly greater than placebo for the MDMA group at all measured time points. There were no drug-related adverse events. Based on CAPS scores, neurocognitive testing, blood pressure and body temperature monitoring data, MDMA-assisted psychotherapy can be administered to PTSD patients without evidence of harm in a therapeutic setting and may be useful in PTSD patients who are refractory to other treatments. The design and progress of a dose-response MDMA-assisted psychotherapy study in 16 U.S. war veterans expected to begin in 2010 will also be discussed.

      Created by over 40 students, across 8 years, from 2 different schools, this anijam ("Time-Line") was an ongoing project in my continuing education classes. Begun in my SVA, "Animation Camera" class and completed in my NYU, "Intro to Animation" class, each student had to begin and end their individual animation the same way, with a black line bisecting a white frame horizontally. Shot on 16mm film, Time-Line contains traditional character, pixilition, and stop motion, animation. It was eventually pieced together with the help of my friend and editor Jim Romaine and features music/sound design by Animation Camera student and friend Rob Ebersol.

        This animated film is a showcase for all the diverse creations by the continuing education students of my "Animation Camera" class at The School of Visual Arts in NYC. These non-animation majors were mostly older students taking my class at night. Each student in the class was required to complete one 2-D animation on the Oxberry camera and one stop motion animation with the Bolex. Edited by Jim Romaine.
