5-MeO-DMT: Journey into the Mysteries of the "God Molecule"

Rosalind G McAlpine (PhD Student, Psychology and Language Sciences, UCL)
Join us for an exploration of 5-MeO-DMT, the powerful psychedelic known as the "God Molecule."

We'll share insights from our recent study in Mexico and discuss future directions in this expanding field. Whether you're curious about psychedelics or an avid psychonaut, we hope this talk will be an engaging and informative exploration of this fascinating substance.

A Psychedelic Odyssey: Charting the Course of Substance Use Disorder Recovery With Psychedelics

Shelan Ofori (PhD student, Clinical Psychopharmacology Unit, UCL)
We can break down the treatment of substance use disorders into 3 steps: promoting abstinence, withdrawal management and finally preventing relapse. This talk is going to delve into how psychedelics are being used at each junction in an attempt to treat substance use disorders.

Tripping the Switch: The Role of Psychedelics in Rewriting Addictive Memories

Marcus Glennon (PhD student, Clinical Psychopharmacology Unit, UCL)
We all know that memories change throughout life. Psychedelics, known for altering perceptions, can impact memory too. Since addiction is deeply linked to certain memories, what if psychedelics could help modify them, reducing their grip on us? This talk will delve into this idea, offering a fresh look at using psychedelics to combat addiction.
