LSD treatments can actually ‘harmonise’ the brain, study shows
Now a new study has revealed exactly what’s going on inside our brains when we take LSD, uncovering a connection that might explain why it relieves the symptoms of disorders such as PTSD and chronic depression.
Research led by the Center for Brain and Cognition at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona has discovered a process of ‘harmonising’ across areas of the brain that don’t usually work together. Referred to by the team as ‘repertoire expansion’, it suggests psychedelic substances like LSD could be encouraging the brain to develop certain patterns of activity. The team thinks these patterns could help compensate the disordered connections that can cause mental suffering.
