Robin Carhart-Harris has a degree in Psychology, MA in Psychoanalysis and PhD in the field of Psychopharmacology. He moved to Imperial College London in 2009, where he has worked for the last 6 years on the brain effects of LSD, psilocybin (magic mushrooms) and MDMA, conducting some of the first brain imaging studies of these drugs. Most recently he has been running a clinical trial looking at the potential of psilocybin to treat depression.
“This talk will discuss the action of different serotonergic psychedelic drugs on the human brain as determined by functional brain imaging. It will also present data from a recent clinical trial assessing psilocybin for treatment-resistant depression and propose a psychological and neurobiological mechanism through which the treatment may act.”
