Neural Mechanisms of Psilocybin-Induced Altered States of Consciousness
Psilocybin is quickly becoming a promising treatment for mental illness and is being studied widely due to its profound consciousness-altering properties. We want to better understand (1) how the consciousness-altering properties of psilocybin affect the brain and, (2) how contextual factors, such as mindset and environmental setting can impact the psilocybin experience.
We are recruiting healthy adults ages between 18-55 years who are residing in Victoria, Australia. Eligible adults will be asked to attend our research facilities in Clayton on two occasions to undergo a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Electroencephalography (EEG).
On the second visit, you will be administered a moderate dose of psilocybin before undergoing the MRI and EEG. Throughout the study, you will also be asked to complete an interview and online questionnaires, where you will be asked about your health and wellbeing. All participants will also be asked to attend one or more sessions designed to prepare participants for the psilocybin experience in a research setting.
Do you drink at harmful levels and want to try to reduce your drinking?
Our researchers are looking for people to test a new app called 'SWIPE' that aims to help people reduce their alcohol cravings and consumption.
