Magic mushrooms study suggest psilocybin may reverse alcohol-induced brain damage

The consumption of alcoholic beverages is responsible for 5.3 percent of deaths worldwide every year… in both groups of mice that received psilocybin, mGluR2 expression was restored following the treatment. This change was evident in the mice’s behavior, too: The psilocybin group relapsed roughly 45 percent less compared to the control mice.

As hypothesized, mGluR2 expression was reduced in the brains of alcohol-dependent mice. That reduction was consistent with lower executive function and increased alcohol cravings… suggests that mGluR2 loss “may be a major consequence of alcohol dependence and a key pathophysiological mechanism mediating increased propensity to relapse.”
