Researchers at the Johns Hopkins University are seeking individuals with depression to participate in a research study looking at the effects of psilocybin, a psychoactive substance found in naturally occurring mushrooms. The study will investigate psychological effects of psilocybin, including whether or not it can help with depression. Brain imaging will be conducted to investigate changes in the brain that might relate to psychological effects of psilocybin.
Volunteers must be between the ages of 21 and 75, have unipolar depression, and no recent history of alcoholism or drug abuse.
If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please apply and complete the contact form. We will be in contact with you soon.
