PSYCHEDELIC RESEARCH

A new research study conducted by the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences aims to evaluate how visual perception changes after taking psilocybin (aka “magic mushrooms”) and how these changes relate to brain functions. We might learn how this drug could be used to treat certain mental health conditions. That is why it is essential to have more research to expand our knowledge base about the drug, psilocybin.

Our participants will be healthy adults from ages 25 to 65 years who have taken psilocybin previously. Study duration for participants will be 12 weeks. Over the course of 7 study visits, participants will undergo interviews, MRls, EEG, blood draws, and drug dosing sessions. Participants will be compensated after each visit.
