This Funzing Experience:
David Nutt | The Brain and Mind, and How Psychedelics Reveal Both

World famous brain scientist Professor David Nutt will cover the range of understandings that modern science has given us into the evolution and function of the brain and the massive growth of neuropsychopharmacology, particularly in relation to the use of psychedelics (e.g. LSD, Psilocybin) and entactogens (e.g. MDMA)

The world is entering a new phase of psychiatric treatments. After the psychotherapy and medical treatment phases in the last century, we are at the start of the phase where we use drugs to assist and empower psychotherapeutic processes.

The origins of this exciting new development are the massive growth of neuropsychopharmacology, particularly in relation to the use of psychedelics (e.g. LSD, Psilocybin) and entactogens (e.g. MDMA). New research on the impact of these drugs on brain functions show clear impacts on brain processes that contribute to maladaptive behavioural processes. Parallel research has shown efficacy for psilocybin and MDMA in disorders such as resistant depression and PTSD.

Held at the stunning 5 star luxury Mandrake Hotel, in this ground-breaking talk Professor Nutt will cover these remarkable new developments and show how they may be used more broadly in the future.

Doors open at 6:00pm, event starts promptly at 6:30pm.

Proceeds from this event will be donated to DrugScience. Founded in 2010 by Professor David Nutt, DrugScience is the only completely independent, science-led drugs charity, uniquely bringing together leading drugs experts from a wide range of specialisms to carry out groundbreaking original research into drug harms and effects.
