LSD Revealed: Scientific Papers from the Beckley/Imperial Research Programme


in Achievements,Uncategorized

Our symposium at the Royal Society on Wednesday 13 April is a celebration of the accomplishments of the Beckley/Imperial Research Programme and commemoration of the release of the results from first ever brain imaging study on LSD. Our main findings have been published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences: “Neural Correlates of the LSD Experience Revealed by Multi-Modal Neuroimaging by Cathart-Harris R, Feilding A, Nutt D et al.”

Below are single-page summaries of a selection of our findings resulting from the LSD study:

LSD Multimodal Imaging
LSD / Music / Parahipoccampus
LSD Global Cross-Talk
LSD Paradoxical Effects
LSD Suggestibility

“LSD modulates music-induced imagery via changes in parahippocampal connectivity.” Kaelen M, Roseman L, Kahan J, Ribeiros AS, Orban C, Lorenz R, Barrett F, Bolstridge M, Williams T, Wall M, McGonigle J, Leech R, Feilding A, Muthukumaraswamy S, Nutt DJ, Carhart-Harris R. European Neuropsychopharmacology (in press)

“Increased global cross-talk in the brain correlates with reports of ego-dissolution under LSD.” Tagliazucchi E, Roseman L, Kaelen M, Orban C, Muthukumraswamy S, Murphy K, Laufs H, Crossley N, Bullmore E, Williams T, Bolstridge M, Feilding A, Nutt DJ, Carhart-Harris R. Current Biology (in press)

“LSD alters eyes-closed functional connectivity within the early visual cortex in a retinotopic fashion.” Roseman L, Sereno MI, Leech R, Kaelen M, Orban C, McGonigle J, Feilding A, Nutt DJ, Carhart-Harris R. Human Brain Mapping (in press)
