Psychedelic Therapy Research
Your gift to the Psychedelic Therapy Research Fund will support Associate Professor Suresh Muthukumaraswamy and his research team to explore the potential of psychedelic drugs to help treat mental health issues.
In the 1960s, hippies danced to Grateful Dead and took LSD to alter their minds.
Today, LSD and other psychedelic drugs could hold the key to reducing our rates of depression, addiction and suicide.
Associate Professor Suresh Muthukumaraswamy is a Neuro-Psycho-Pharmacologist and an expert in brain imaging. He returned to New Zealand in 2015 after taking part in ground-breaking studies of psychedelics in the United Kingdom, including producing the first images of the brain on LSD. His main research interests are in understanding how therapies alter brain activity and in developing methodologies to measure these.
