Scientists at the University of Michigan’s “Center for Conscious Science” will hold an on-campus symposium in September in which they will explore “psychedelics,” or mind-altering drugs, in a purported attempt to “study the effects and potential medical uses of various psychoactive substances.” “Psychedelic Neuroscience Symposium” officials are urging neuroscientists, cognitive scientists, psychologists and clinicians to attend the gala.
Psychedelic drugs include substances such as psilocybin mushrooms and LSD and can significantly alter consciousness and lead to bizarre audio-visual experiences. These potentially dangerous substances act primarily upon the central nervous system, where they can also cause temporary changes in perception, mood, emotion and behavior. Who knew Woodstock was a “Psychedelic Neuroscience Symposium?”
Democrats are apparently already taking part in the new study if their recent debates are any indication.
