  • Description: Fluctuations of energy inputs, both psychological and physical, are reflected in fluctuations in the degree of cellular dispersion or aggregation. In depression the cells are closely aggregated in a matrix of micellar or coacervate media. A previous proposal by Ecanow as to the mechanism of anesthetic action is here extended to ataractic drug action. The membranes micellar-water-coacervate phase incorporates the ataractic molecules and becomes more structured. The highly structered membrane permits only minimal exchange transport of ions and polar molecules e.g. glucose.
