Robin Carhart-Harris, PhD - Imperial College, United Kingdom
This talk will describe recently completed fMRI and MEG research with psilocybin and MDMA. I will
describe the methods and main results of these studies and discuss their potential implications, both for
understanding how the drugs work in the brain and how their effects may be relevant to psychiatry.
After being awarded an MA in Psychoanalysis at Brunel University, London, Carhart-Harris completed his PhD in psychopharmacology at the University of Bristol. In 2009, under the mentorship of Professor David Nutt, Carhart-Harris moved to Imperial College London to continue his fMRI research with the classic psychedelic drug psilocybin.
