New Study Gives Most Advanced View of the Brain on Psychedelics

The article New Study Gives Most Advanced View of the Brain on Psychedelics was originally published on Microdose.

A new study looking at DMT effects on the brain has produced the most detailed view yet of psychedelics and DMT’s powerful potential.

The new study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, led by Chris Timmermann, head of the DMT research group at Imperial College London. The research looked at 20 healthy volunteers receiving either a 20mg injection of DMT (a substantially-sized dose) or a placebo.

The patients were then monitored using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG), with brain activity measured during before, during, and after the DMT session.

According to the researchers, the study gives us the most advanced picture to date of the human brain on psychedelics.



The readings show how normal structures in the brain cease their standard hierarchal modes, with increased connectivity between regions that handle imagination and other higher-level functions.
