1/25 Since it’s that time of the year, here’s some (maybe all) of the books I’ve read or listened to in 2022, roughly in chronological order 📚👇🏽
2/ Exact thinking in demented times, by Karl Sigmund. A fascinating, lyrical, vivid, and deeply researched history of the Vienna Circle. Takes a while, but repays handsomely.…
3/ Piranesi, by Susanna Clarke. How she conjures such a vivid and magical world with just words I have no idea. It is a world I did not want to leave. Read it, and then listen to Chiwetel Ejiofor read it to you. Wonderful.…

The 'default mode network' (#DMN) is the neurobiological poster child for #psychedelic #drugs (e.g., see #HowToChangeYourMind). A preliminary meta-analysis from the @PsychedelicUNIT suggests this might be overstated, w/ other regions being more impacted, like ye olde cerebellum. Image
These results are from 'classic' #psychedelics like #LSD and #psilocybin taken by healthy people during resting-state neuroimaging. We used dose as a covariate. A possible caveat is that we mixed blob and functional connectivity analyses which we will now try and model.
The details will soon be in a preprint and we will make the code and larger dataset publicly available. We hope this will help others to address their own questions with further meta-analyses. For example, we asked....

1/5 If you’re enjoying @michaelpollan’s #HowToChangeYourMind on @netflix and want to go deeper on the science, here’s a list of #psychedelic readings authored by @DiamondThera advisors, collaborators and team members:
2/5 @DiamondThera advisor Dr. Torsten Passie’s book delves into the scientific literature on #microdosing. It covers tolerance, toxicity, and placebo and surfaces research that is often overlooked.…

On July 21st, I’ll go LIVE on the #μltradelic podcast (@UltradelicHQ) to discuss @michaelpollan’s new @netflix series #HowToChangeYourMind. Why? #HTCYM clearly failed to address the growing #epidemic of #SexualAssault within the #psychedelic community. #MeToo

A Thread 🧵 ImageImageImage
2/ Back in May of last year, @michaelpollan publicly discussed his belief that there is “value” in “inoculating the public against inevitable negative stories” about #psychedelics including “sexual abuse in the treatment room” 🚩 🚩 🚩

Inoculate = make immune to, right? 🚩 🚩 🚩 Image
3/ In 1963, Bob Dylan poetically asked listeners across the globe

“How many times can a man turn his head and pretend that he just doesn't see? [...] How many ears must one man have before he can hear people cry? [...] The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind.”

1/ @michaelpollan's highly-expected @netflix series #HowToChangeYourMind just premiered! 📺🍄 Despite near-universal praise, #HTCYM is rife with errors & borders on historical revisionism 🤥

A critique 🤔🧵 #LSD #MDMA #Peyote #Mescaline #Psilocybin #Mushrooms #Psychedelic @MAPS
2/ Before I get started, I'll give everyone a little bit of background information. @michaelpollan released a non-fiction work entitled "How to Change Your Mind" in May of 2018. Before the end of that year, his book about #psychedelic drugs became a @nytimes bestseller. Image
3/ @michaelpollan achieved massive coverage for this self-described "mental travelogue" of his #psychedelic experiences. Soon enough, Mr. Pollan became a prominent figure w/in the so-called "Psychedelic Renaissance". In the process, he gained a rather interesting reputation. Image
