Ensayo sobre la ketamina

It is postulated that at least part of ketamine’s action is to increase the release of dopamine in the brain.
In one study, rats were given ketamine and the brains were analyzed for the content of monoamines and their metabolites.
No net change in dopamine was seen, although an increase in its metabolites indicated an increased turnover rate.
This study also showed increased amounts of serotonin during ketamine-induced anesthesia and an increased amount of norepinephrine coinciding with excitement during recovery.

tasa de metabolización (en este contexto)

Aunque redundante y casi obvio (el aumento de metabolitos sugiere una mayor tasa de metabolización), diría que esta es la idea que parece expresar el original.

Aceleración del metabolismo.

Los metabolitos son las células encargadas del metabolismo; cuando en el texto se dice que la droga produjo un "turnover rate" de los metabolitos significa que hubo un proceso de renovación muy brusco de los mismos, es decir, un metabolismo más acelerado en el organismo de las ratas.
