A new study in Neuroscience of Consciousness adds weight to previous findings about the potential benefits psychedelics could have for treating mental health disorders.
Those who microdose psychedelics report improved mood, greater focus, and increased creativity. A new study looks at the positive outcomes of microdosing and suggests others look at potential long-term negative consequences of using psychedelics.
Two new studies consider the potential of using psychedelics to help treat depression. Imperial College London researchers report psilocybin, the active compound in magic mushrooms, can help to relieve symptoms of depression without the dulling of emotions associated with SSRIs.

Study discussed the benefits of using psychedelics as an antidepressant option for those with depression.
Numerous recent studies claim psychedelics, such as psilocybin, can help treat a range of mental health problems from depression to PTSD. Researchers investigate how psychedelics can help us become more "nature-connected" and increase a sense of environmental responsibility.
A new study reports those who microdose psychedelics report improvements in attention and mental health. However, a number of people report an increase in neuroticism following six weeks of microdosing.
Researchers explore the potential benefits of using hallucinogens for the treatment of PTSD, anxiety, depression and other mental health disorders.
Investigating how psychedelics such as psilocybin act on serotonin receptors, researchers shed new light on how the drugs affect consciousness and assist in treating a range of mental health disorders.
From microdosing to improve cognition, to treating a range of mental health disorders, researchers evaluate the rise in the use of psychedelics and their potential as medicines.
According to researchers, a single large dose if psilocybin, the active hallucinogenic compound found in magic mushrooms, helped provide relief for people suffering from cancer related depression and anxiety for up to six months.
