This webinar will explore the intersection of neuroscience and psychedelics, highlighting their potential therapeutic benefits for mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction.
Dr. Reichelt will delve into the neurobiology of psychedelics, emphasizing their role in promoting neuroplasticity, which allows for the rewiring of the brain. Ongoing clinical research will also be discussed, including the use of these substances in controlled settings to address trauma, reduce symptoms, and tackle substance dependence.
