Ketamine alters multiple neuromodulators in the brain producing antidepressant, hypnotic and analgesic benefits. One important neurotransmitter affected is glutamate, which plays a large role in facilitating learning and memory. By altering glutamate, ketamine can block off learned thought patterns and behaviors while simultaneously creating a new pathway. This allows the mind to overcome triggers that send the mind into a spiraling thought process.
