NEUROSCIENCE RESEARCH

The goal of this research is to understand the neurobiological changes and mechanisms that accompany different states of consciousness and experiences of self that occur during the psychedelic experience.

The most recent line of neuroscience research at Heffter Zürich has focused on how psilocybin affects mood and related attitudes, culminating in the neurobiological study of psilocybin for depressed patients. This research has the potential to lead to breakthroughs in our understanding of neurobiology, which can result in currently unimagined treatments for human illness and a deeper understanding of human nature.
