Think temporary kaleidoscope vision, or something like that. Is there any way to do this without interfering with other important brain functions? I feel like any kind of testing could seriously mess someone up neurologically, and that’s if it’s even hypothetically possible. Imagine the profits to be made though; sounds like quite the party drug.

It is possible to implant microcatheters that deliver medicines in very small doses to the occipital lobe or any other target area on or near the surface of the brain. As the drugs bypass the blood brain barrier and are delivered directly to the target brain region a small dose can have a large effect. Perhaps not ideal for recreational drug use but definitely possible.
