Glutamate is involved in perception of pain, responses to the environment, and memory.

Ketamine distorts sounds and sensations and makes users feel detached from reality. Some ketamine experiences involve a terrifying feeling of almost complete sensory detachment that is likened to a near-death experience sometimes referred to as ‘the K-hole.’
