Packed Lunch: Psychedelics for Psychiatry


Drop in

Wednesday 7 February 2018


Feed your curiosity at our daytime discussions. Drop in to hear local scientists in conversation about their latest experiments, life in the lab and why science matters to everyone, all in the space of your lunch hour. Bring your sarnies with you to eat while you listen.

Could psychedelic drugs like LSD and magic mushrooms revolutionise psychology and psychiatry, for example in the treatment of addiction or depression? Join Robin Carhart-Harris to hear about his pioneering research into the neurological effects and potential therapeutic uses of psychedelics.


Robin Carhart-Harris, Head of Psychedelic Research, Imperial College London

This event is FREE. First come, first seated. Please note that these events can get busy. Doors open 12.45.
