“Your Brain on LSD” – Podcast 16: Robin Carhart-Harris


Depth psychology. Jungian symbolism. Psychedelic drugs. Mystery religions. fMRI scans. Dream states vs. awake states. Functional connectomics. Animal consciousness. Neural correlates of the ego and the unconscious mind. All in a one-hour conversation.

Ben is joined by Robin Carhart-Harris, a researcher at Imperial College, London who conducted a study many of us have been waiting for for more than 40 years: He gave people LSD, put them in a cutting-edge fMRI scanner, and mapped how their brain connectivity changed while they were on the drug.

Here’s on the podcast to talk about that, and a whole lot more.
