Frame rate enhancement

Frame rate enhancement can be described as an effect which increases the detail at which a person can perceive quickly occurring events that appear within their field of view. This may give the appearance that the external environment is being viewed in slow motion and that time has been "stretched out". For example, fast moving objects such as birds, insects, and cars may begin to present themselves as clearly viewable instead of as fleeting blurs of motion, which is often the case during every day sobriety.

In terms of its intensity, this effect can be subtle in its appearance in a manner which only slightly slows down a person's perception of motion. However, at higher levels, this effect can temporarily bring the speed of events down to an almost complete standstill.

Frame rate enhancement is often accompanied by other coinciding effects such as acuity enhancement and thought acceleration. It is most commonly induced under the influence of moderate dosages of psychedelic compounds, such as LSD, psilocybin, and mescaline.
