The Neurobiology of Prophetic Visions: Dreams, Drugs and the Predictive Brain
What happens in the brain when you’re seeing the rich psychedelic landscapes of colour and transformative images? Where do visionary experiences come from and what do they mean? This lecture will talk about the neurobiology of perception and how that is modulated by the use of psilocybin.
