#240 Psychedelics: Is This Why They’re Investing? (With Nicolas Glynos)
Manage episode 329984284 series 1398065
This week I spoke with Nicolas Glynos, who is Vice President of the Student Association for Psychedelic Studies and Co-founder of Psychedelic Neuroscience and Therapy for the University of Michigan. His latest work is focused on the compound DMT (N, N- Dimethyltryptamine), which exists within our bodies as well as throughout nature. (It's sometimes called "the spirit molecule.") Together we talk about the neurological picture of the brain when DMT has been administered--for instance, the impact DMT has on default brain network functions such as "mental time-travel/mind wandering" and "planning"--as well as all the other ways to measure the brain under psychedelics. Plus, we find out about the plant-based psychedelic ayahuasca.
