Studies conducted on the effects of Psilocybin in healthy humans
No placebo-controlled trials on healthy humans that meet our inclusion criteria have been conducted on Psilocybin.
"Analyses of pre and post study measures revealed reductions in reported levels of depression and stress; lower levels of distractibility; increased absorption; and increased neuroticism."
"PY affects core dimensions of altered states of consciousness and physiological parameters in a dose-dependent manner. Our study provided no cause for concern that PY is hazardous with respect to somatic health."
"Psilocybin was found to significantly impair subjects' ability to (1) reproduce interval durations longer than 2.5 sec, (2) to synchronize to inter-beat intervals longer than 2 sec and (3) caused subjects to be slower in their preferred tapping rate. These objective effects on timing performance were accompanied by working-memory deficits and subjective changes in conscious state, namely increased reports of 'depersonalization' and 'derealization' phenomena including disturbances in subjective 'time sense."
"These findings provide first evidence that psilocybin has distinct effects on social cognition by enhancing emotional empathy but not moral behavior."
"The results confirm that non-pharmacological variables play an important role in the effects of psilocybin."
"The results suggest that the administration of moderate doses of psilocybin to healthy, high-functioning and well-prepared subjects in the context of a carefully monitored research environment is associated with an acceptable level of risk."
