Psychedelic Scientific Journal Club APS - Perth
Hey APS crew and those scientifically minded.
*we have added 10 more tickets
We have heard you all loud and clear! After introducing the lecture series to the wider community we thought it would be fun to open a scientific journal club for those who want some gumption with their psychedelic knowledge. Therefore, as well as running the lecture series we would like to introduce the first APS - Perth Scientific Journal Club. This is for those who want to talk about receptors, neurons, and mechanisms of action. People who like to read academic papers in their spare time, those that keep up with what is, "the what", in psychedelics. Topics will range across multiple fields from neuroscience, psychology/psychiatry, and pharmacology. All are welcome.
The APS journal club will be held once a month. We will link an open-access journal for those attending to read in advance before the journal club. At the journal club, everyone attending should have read the paper beforehand. There will be a designated 'speaker', the person who has chosen the journal article, who will talk through the article procedurally. The point is for the presenter to summarise quickly each section of the paper and bring up any comments they have on each section. During the presentation, there will be points for an open discussion for anyone to make their comments on the paper. This open discussion part is intended to encourage knowledge growth and challenge ideas with other scientific papers/knowledge. The presenter will change each month with one of the attendees at the journal club nominating themselves to present the following month on a scientific peer-reviewed journal article of their choice.
Your MC and presenter for the evening will be Neuropsychopharmacology Phd student Moshe Meyers - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mo...
The paper for the evening will be "Psychedelics, but Not Ketamine, Produce Persistent Antidepressant-like Effects in a Rodent Experimental System for the Study of Depression" by Meghan Hibicke, Alexus N. Landry, Hannah M. Kramer, Zoe K. Talman, and Charles D. Nichols.
The paper is downloadable, and readable via this link https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.10...
