Neuroscience Lecture Series by Dr. Frederick Barrett

Novel Evidence for systems-level mechanisms that support acute effects and enduring therapeutic effects of Psilocybin

Event Details

Tuesday, November 5, 2019
3-4 p.m.
John D. Wiley Conference Center (T216 North Tower), Waisman Center
One to three administrations of psilocybin under supportive conditions may lead to fast-acting and long-lasting therapeutic response in a wide range of disorders, including mood and substance use disorders. We will review novel data suggesting a role of the claustrum in acute psilocybin effects, and we will review theory, literature, and preliminary data that may reveal neurobiological trans-diagnostic therapeutic targets for psilocybin and other psychedelic drugs.
