A new analysis of the original psilocybin fMRI data has recently been published in a new paper in Schizophrenia Bulletin, in which the psychedelic state is analysed for similarity with early psychosis, as both share similar effects on how different areas of the brain communicate with eachother.
advancing scientific discovery with evidence-based research
The aim of the Beckley Foundation Scientific Programme is to increase understanding of brain function and consciousness. We use psychoactive substances as tools to alter brain activity. By investigating these changes with the latest brain-imaging technology, we open up exciting new avenues of treatment for physical and mental conditions, and unveil the mechanisms by which psychedelics produce their profound effect. By changing consciousness, we learn more about normal consciousness.
To date, the Beckley Foundation has conducted scientific studies in conjunction with some of the world’s leading academic institutions, including Johns Hopkins, Imperial College, University College London, and King’s College.
