Combat Sports Turn to Psychedelics as a Potential Treatment for Brain Injuries

Researchers to Test Virtual Psychedelics on AI to Help Understand Effects on Human Brains

While psychedelics gain popularity across the media through various clinical trials and research studies, it is important to remember that there is still a lot about them that we don’t know, including how they cause strange hallucinations and how they affect the brain.
