Paolo Mantegazza (1831 – 1910) was a prominent Italian neurologist, physiologist and anthropologist, noted for the isolation of cocaine from coca leaves and his experimental investigation into its effects on the human psyche.
Paolo Mantegazza also believed that drugs and certain food s would change humankind in the future, and defended the experimental investigation and use of cocaine as one of these miracle drugs (its addiction potential was not known at the time).
When Mantegazza returned from Peru, where he had witnessed the use of coca by the natives, he was able to isolate for the first time the active agent, cocaine, from coca leaves extract and then tested on himself in 1859.
