Animated Drug Mechanisms

Have you ever had a drink of alcohol and you wondered what exactly was going on in your brain to make you feel buzzed? Why would a "downer" make you more uninhibited and outgoing in a social setting? I've tried to figure this one out, but it isn't the easiest topic to think about while intoxicated.
If you ever wondered exactly how ecstasy, cannabis, speed, cocaine, heroine, alcohol or nicotine have their effect in the brain, now's your chance to find out.
Thanks to MindHacks (via Omni Brain), a short flash animation of various drugs is presented for your viewing pleasure! Keep in mind that the original site was written in Dutch, so the English isn't very good.
