Neuroscience research suggests LSD might enhance learning and memory by promoting brain plasticity

New research published in Experimental Neurology provides some initial evidence that the psychedelic substance known as LSD has nootropic properties. The study found that LSD increased markers of neuroplasticity in human brain organoids, increased novelty preference in rats, and improved memory performance in humans. When combined with psychotherapy, psychedelic drugs have shown promise in the …

Brain Scans Reveal the Hidden Shape of Thinking and Predict Students’ Learning Better Than Test Scores

Summary: Neuroimaging study reveals brain changes in students are better indicators of learning than test scores. Source: Georgetown University The traditional tests and grades that educators have long used may measure learning less accurately than scans of the brain, according to a new study published in Science Advances. The paper, authored by a team of researchers …
