"Under normal conditions, information from our eyes is processed in a part of the brain at the back of the head called the visual cortex," the researchers said in a statement.

"However, when the volunteers took LSD, many additional brain areas -- not just the visual cortex -- contributed to visual processing."

Delta dumps one of the most hated airline fees

Airline had charged to speak with actual human

Well here's something you don't hear every day: An airline is eliminating a fee.

Delta Airlines is no longer charging customers a fee to speak with an actual human being while booking flights.

In the past, the Atlanta-based airline charged travelers $25 per ticket for booking over the phone and $35 when buying at an airport.

"This -- and every decision we make -- is based on engaging with our customers and employees every day," said Charisse Evans, Delta's vice president, reservation sales and customer care, in a statement.

Other airlines still charge the fee. Read about the specifics here.
