As psychedelics’ popularity increases among millennials and in the mainstream, slowly shedding their taboo shroud, more studies are being conducted to determine the medical and psychological value of these substances. And not just by the kid next door—but by real, live scientists!
This weekend, from Thursday through Sunday, Penn will be hosting Psychedemia, an academic
nightclub conference that “will feature university scholars and researchers from across the country in the fields of medicine, psychology, neuroscience, ethics, rhetoric, and anthropology to discuss recent ideas and discoveries in psychedelic studies.”
The event is open to the public (with registration fee), but you can get a little cut of the action for free at the welcome session this Thursday at 5PM in the Hall of Flags. Sounds like a great way to get involved in, you know, research.
