The neuropsychopharmacology of psychedelic drugs

Wednesday, September 28, 2022

12 p.m. 1 p.m. PT

Online and In-Person

Psychedelic drugs have received a lot of recent attention due to their potential for treating a range of psychiatric disorders. In this talk, we will discuss modern approaches to therapy with classic psychedelic drugs such as psilocybin, and review the available evidence for the potential therapeutic efficacy of psilocybin-assisted therapy for mood and substance use disorders. We will also survey theories of the potential mechanisms underlying acute and enduring therapeutic effects of psychedelic drugs.
