6,7-Methylenedioxy-2-aminotetralin (MDAT) is a psychoactive drug and research chemical developed in the 1990s by a team at Purdue University led by David E. Nichols.[1] It appears to act as a serotonin releasing agent (SRA) based on rodent drug discrimination assays comparing it to MDMA ("Ecstasy"), in which it fully substitutes for, and lacks any kind of serotonergic neurotoxicity.[1] Hence, MDAT is a non-neurotoxic, putative entactogen in humans. It is closely related to and associated with its rigid indane analogues MDAI, MDMAI, and MMAI.
