Functional Connectivity Measures After Psilocybin Inform a Novel Hypothesis of Early Psychosis Psilocybin is a classic psychedelic and a candidate drug model of psychosis. This study measured the effects of psilocybin on resting-state network and thalamocortical functional connectivity (FC) using functional
Neural correlates of the psychedelic state as determined by fMRI studies with psilocybin Psychedelic drugs have a long history of use in healing ceremonies, but despite renewed interest in their therapeutic potential, we continue to know very little about how
Broadband Cortical Desynchronization Underlies the Human Psychedelic State Psychedelic drugs produce profound changes in consciousness, but the underlying neurobiological mechanisms for this remain unclear. Spontaneous and induced oscillatory activity was recorded in healthy human participants with magnetoencephalography after intravenous
The Entropic Brain – A theory of conscious states informed by neuroimaging research with psychedelic drugs Entropy is a dimensionless quantity that is used for measuring uncertainty about the state of a system but it can also imply physical qualities,
