Dana Discovery Dialogues: Psychedelic Assisted Therapies

February 7, 2024

The fifth event of the Dana Discovery Dialogues was held on February 21 from 3-4pm ET.

February’s topic will explored one of the hottest topics in neuroscience: psychedelics. With recent legislation making psychedelic use and study more widely available, there are still regulatory hoops to jump through. In this conversation, panelists discuss using psychedelics to treat trauma and the risk of policy setbacks leaving some of the most in-need groups behind.
