Psychedelics: Therapeutic Mechanisms and Clinical Findings

Thursday, October 25
7:45 AM - 8:45 AM
Location: Valencia W415 A-D

Human research with psychedelic compounds has been gaining momentum in recent years and recent trials have shown that they may have therapeutic efficacy for a range of different psychiatric disorders. It is therefore important we understand this work, including how they may be working psychologically, and in the brain, to elicit these effects. This session aims to educate attendees on the current state of psychiatric research with psychedelic compound. Dr. Carhart-Harris will explain the basic pharmacology and mechanism of action of psychedelics both acutely in healthy populations and in therapeutic contexts.
