Psilocybin as a Tool for Enhanced Creativity and Positive Learning


Using a combination of behavioural measures and brain imaging (MRI spectroscopy and fMRI), the project will examine whether psilocybin can help individuals to devalue previously learned associations by increasing creative thinking. Taking place at Maastricht University, this research could both determine the efficacy of psilocybin to enhance creativity and reveal potential therapeutic targets for altering the maladaptive thought patterns that characterise mental illnesses, such as post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.
