Manesh Girn: The Neuroscience of Psychedelics & Human Potential

Manesh Girn: The Neuroscience of Psychedelics & Human Potential: Episode 24, The Psychedelic Entrepreneur Podcast

What’s really going on in our brains on psychedelics? Join Beth and neuroscientist, Manesh Girn, as they dive into the extraordinary complexity of the brain, the importance of bringing scientific rigor to the larger psychedelic conversation, and the incredible potential of psychedelics to support our healing and personal development.

Manesh is a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at McGill University and has been lead or co-author on over a dozen scientific publications and book chapters on topics including psychedelics, meditation, daydreaming, and the default-mode network.

His PhD dissertation focuses on the default-mode network and he is also conducting research on the brain mechanisms underlying LSD, psilocybin, and DMT in collaboration with Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris and others from the Imperial College London Center for Psychedelic Research.

In his free time, he also runs a YouTube channel – called The Psychedelic Scientist – where he discusses the latest findings in psychedelic science in an easy to understand, but non-superficial, form.

In this episode, Beth and Manesh Girn speak about…

  • The similarities between the effects of psilocybin, LSD and DMT
  • How DMT temporarily overwhelms our brain’s usual way of perceiving reality
  • The possibility that psychedelics may be able to heal us on an epigenetic level
  • The utility of psychedelics across a variety of mental health challenges
  • How psychedelics can enhance the lives of healthy people
  • How psychedelics affect thinking, emotion, creativity, memory, attention and behavior
  • Psychedelics as a part of a holistic program of personal development
  • The challenge of integrating powerful insights from psychedelic experiences
  • Psychedelics and the default mode network
