    Psychedelic Talks - The REBUS Model

    Event description

    Hey APS crew! It’s been a hot minute since the last talk on the psychopharmacology of psychedelics but Adrian and Jason are ready to get the ball rolling for 2023.

    For those of you who don’t know, Adrian and Jason are two junior psychiatry doctors interested in creating a dialogue in the psychedelic community in anticipation of the inevitable integration of psychedelics into the medical sphere - especially now given that psilocybin and MDMA have been approved for medical treatment of treatment resistant-depression and PTSD!

    The first topic for the year is Carhart-Harris’ model of how psychedelics work called REBUS – Relaxed Beliefs under Psychedelics. Quite the unusual name, but a very interesting and promising model that sheds some insight into what may be happening under the hood when psychedelics float around the brain. 

    These talks will be targeted more towards those of you who are still fresh to the psychedelic space or are somewhat familiar with these topics and want to know about some of the ideas from the big researchers in the space. That being said, for all of you who are already full-bottle on these topics (and likely know more than we do) feel free to come along and chime in the discussion.

    PS. for those of you who are looking for a super in-depth dive (because there were quite a few of you guys at the last talk!), APS is cooking something behind the scenes for all the nerds that want to get stuck in the nitty gritty details. Find out more on the day :)

    The talk about the REBUS model will be on Thursday the 23rd of March at UWA’s Reid library and will run from 6pm to approximately 8pm. The talk itself (including Q&A) will run for about an hour, and then we’ll open it up to a more casual discussion afterwards. Hope to see you there!
