Although dance culture has been compared with the punk movement through their common element grass-roots expressions of culture, in Australia, punk tended to be an "invasion" of culture from abroad.

MDMA Vault : In the Name of Science: Prior Exposure to MDMA May Block High-Dose Neurotoxicity. "Practically any stimulus capable of causing injury to a tissue or organ can, when applied close to (but below) the threshold of damage, activate endogenous protective mechanisms--thus potentially lessening the impact of subsequent, more severe stimuli.
" -- Dirnagl et al. 20031 One of the more interesting neurotoxicity research findings over the last 25 years is that exposure to a low dose of a neurotoxin can provide protection against more severe damage from a later dose of the same substance. For methamphetamine, this was first documented in 1985,2 and in 2006, researchers found that "chronic, intermittent exposure" to MDMA in rats blocked severe damage to the serotonin system from a later high "binge" dose (Piper et al. 2006).3 A second research group recently published confirmation that pre-treatment with MDMA provides protection against a later neurotoxic dose (Bhide et al. 2009).4 Duration of the prophylactic effect is also unknown.
