…social… with psychedelics…

…we are planning a study right now using a citizen-scientist approach, says Sonja Lyubomirsky, a psychologist at UC Riverside. We’re going to ask people to get together with a friend and have a deep conversation. We’re going to have a placebo, which may be either a lower dose of the drug, or it could be another drug.

We know what brain pathways, and some of the psychological processes, that MDMA affects. There’s more eye contact. People disclose more about themselves. That reveals some of the key ingredients that are important for connection. The key to relationships, according to partner-responsiveness theory, is feeling understood, valued, and loved by your partner, or by the person that you have a relationship with… I’m not suggesting that people be on this drug all the time, obviously, but it’s a way to bolster this connection that will endure, maybe even have permanent impact…
