Magic Mushrooms? New Research on Fungus-Derived Hallucinogens at UW-Madison and Beyond
Saturday10/2312:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Psychedelic compounds from fungi and other plant sources are being studied in combination with psychotherapy for the treatment of a number of mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, PTSD and addiction. UW-Madison has launched a new transdisciplinary center and master’s degree program to support the next generation of research on the potential value of these psychoactive agents to address a range of conditions and contexts. Wisconsin Public Radio’s Steve Paulson and a distinguished panel of experts will explore what we know about these compounds, how they work, and their role and impact across cultures.
