Could psychedelic drugs make the world a better place?

In this talk, Robin Carhart-Harris will describe the rationale behind conducting the first ever clinical trial of psilocybin (magic mushrooms) as a treatment for depression – and share his results.

Robin will describe how psilocybin works in the brain to have its antidepressant effects and discuss the psychology of the drug experience and after-effects of the treatment.
