Workshop A: From Underlying Mechanisms to Clinical Efficacy: Deepening Understanding of the Psychedelic Mode of Action & Hallucinogenic Effects

Time: 9:00 am
day: Pre Conf Day - A


Investment in psychedelic R&D is growing, with notable approvals on the horizon, however, the underlying mechanisms and receptor interactions driving clinical efficacy remain poorly understood.

Join this workshop to uncover new knowledge of underlying psychedelic mechanisms, decipher the role of 5HT2A, debate the necessity hallucinogenic effects, and examine recent clinical efficacy data.

Address critical questions, such as:

  • What are the compounds doing in the body to create long-lasting effects?
  • What is happening to various brain pathways during the trip, and how long does a trip need to be?
  • What is currently understood about how psychedelics induce neuroplasticity and the receptors involved?
  • What is the evidence for and against the need for a hallucinogenic experience to demonstrate efficacy
