Psychedelics in Unlocking the Unconscious: From Cancer to Addiction - Gabor Mate

Complex unconscious psychological stresses underlie and contribute to all chronic medical conditions, from cancer and addiction to depression and multiple sclerosis. Therapy that is assisted by psychedelics, in the right context and with the right support, can bring these dynamics to the surface and thus help a person liberate themselves from their influence. Special focus will be given to the speaker's experience in treating addictions and other stress-related conditions, both with aboriginal people and in non-indigenous contemporary healing circles. This work has been done under the guidance of indigenous Peruvian shamans and their Western apprentices.

To the Seventh Dimension: The Fashion World Turns On to Ayahuasca | ayahuasca | Scoop.it
Like the rest of the world, the fashion community has turned on to ayahuasca, a concoction of trendiness significant enough to warrant a cameo in Noah Baumbach’s latest ode to lost edges, While We’re Young. (In it, the hip young couple played by Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried drag Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts to an ayahuasca ceremony.) In its native South America, The New York Times reported recently, the drug is even becoming mainstream enough that it’s been administered to prisoners for rehabilitation purposes.

Ayahuasca psychedelic tested for depression

Ayahuasca psychedelic tested for depression | ayahuasca | Scoop.it

A psychedelic drink used for centuries in healing ceremonies is now attracting the attention of biomedical scientists as a possible treatment for depression. Researchers from Brazil last month published results from the first clinical test of a potential therapeutic benefit for ayahuasca, a South American plant-based brew1. Although the study included just six volunteers and no placebo group, the scientists say that the drink began to reduce depression in patients within hours, and the effect was still present after three weeks. They are now conducting larger studies that they hope will shore up their findings.

Serotonergic psychedelics temporarily modify information transfer in humans

Serotonergic psychedelics temporarily modify information transfer in humans | ayahuasca | Scoop.it

Methods: We assessed the psychedelic-induced changes in directionality of information flow during the acute effects of a psychedelic in humans. We measured modifications in connectivity of brain oscillations using transfer entropy (TE), a non-linear measure of directed functional connectivity based on information theory. Ten healthy male volunteers with prior experience with psychedelics participated in two experimental sessions. They received a placebo or a dose of ayahuasca, a psychedelic preparation containing the serotonergic 5-HT2A agonist N,N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT).


Results: the analysis showed significant changes in the coupling of brain oscillations between anterior and posterior recording sites. TE analysis showed that frontal sources decreased their influence over central, parietal and occipital sites. Conversely, sources in posterior locations increased their influence over signals measured at anterior locations. Exploratory correlations found that anterior-to-posterior TE decreases were correlated with the intensity of subjective effects, while the imbalance between anterior-to-posterior and posterior-to-anterior TE correlated with the degree of incapacitation experienced.


Jerónimo M.M.'s insight:

Conclusions: these results suggest that psychedelics induce a temporary disruption of neural hierarchies by reducing top-down control and increasing bottom-up information transfer in the human brain.
