Psilocybin produces an immunology-related genetic response in the prefrontal cortex of pig brains

In the study [University of Copenhagen]… examined brain tissue from pigs, the researchers first conducted tests to establish the proper dose to produce psychoactive effects in the animals. Pigs were used because their brains are anatomically similar the brains of humans.

Immune-related genes constituted the largest group of genes impacted one week after psilocybin administration, suggesting that the long-lasting effects of the psychedelic substance might be related to neuroinflammation. “Neuroinflammation is now recognised as key player in psychiatric diseases, such as depression, with positive outcomes of treatment with anti-inflammatory compounds,” the researchers wrote.
