By Alex Landon April 28, 2020

Things are going to get trippy at The Science of Psychedelics.

Fancy learning about something that isn’t social distancing and flattening the curve? We feel you. Thankfully, our pals at Fever have lined up some of their excellent Fever Talks to stream online, which means you can now enjoy a fascinating lecture about The Science of Psychedelics, without having to leave your pyjamas. Nifty, right? It kicks off on Wednesday April 29 at 7pm, and you can find your tickets here.

How can psychoactive drugs help us understand human consciousness and therapeutic techniques? The Science of Psychedelics sets out to answer that question, as Chris Timmerman of Imperial College London delivers a really thought-provoking talk. He’ll be diving into the research to explain how psychedelics could find new uses in the modern world, whether that be in the potential treatment of depression, anxiety, and addiction, or exploring how the human brain connects to nature.

Psychedelics have been an important part of human culture for thousands of years, but we’re still trying to understand them and their uses. The Science of Psychedelics aims to answer all your burning questions – and if you’ve still got more left at the end, you can raise them in the Q&A!

There are plenty more Fever Talks Online to enjoy over the coming weeks, spanning a whole range of subjects. Maybe you’d like to learn about the possibility of parallel universes, uncover the psychology of attraction, or dive into the world of artificial intelligence. There’s so much to discover!
