Neurocognitive Therapies and Translational Research Webinar Series: Psychedelic Therapies for Psychiatric Disorders: Introduction and Early Results_Online
Basic neuroscientific research on the mechanisms underlying cognitive, affective, and social processes have been slow in penetrating real-world psychology/psychiatry clinics. This is a missed opportunity for maximizing and advancing our understanding of core patterns of psychopathology and treatment response in neuropsychiatric disorders. This series will bring together members from the neuroscience, medical, and psychiatry/psychology communities to translate basic science findings into real-world clinical practice.
Topic for this Session: “Psychedelic Therapies for Psychiatric Disorders: Introduction and Early Results”
Presented by: Josh Woolley, MD, PhD
