The Beckley/Imperial Research Programme will soon undertake the world’s first scientific study into the efficacy of microdosing, using the ancient Chinese strategy game of Go to investigate whether small doses of LSD can enhance intuitive pattern recognition and creativity. Led by Amanda Feilding, this unprecedented and highly original study will make use of the latest brain imaging technology to reveal the neurological mechanisms behind the effects of microdosing – but we need your help to make it happen.
To be part of a revolution in mental healthcare and shape the future of psychedelic research, visit our crowdfunding page and help us raise the funds we need to complete this pioneering study.
Microdosing involves taking tiny amounts of psychedelic substances in order to produce subtle changes in cognitive function without altering perception. Extensive anecdotal reports suggest that microdosing with LSD can improve mood, enhance cognition, increase productivity, and boost creativity, although no genuine scientific research has ever been done to confirm this.
With little or no inclination for governments or pharmaceutical companies to finance research into psychedelic medications, studies such as this depend entirely on private donors and institutions. Fundamental has therefore launched a crowdfunding campaign to support four separate studies on psychedelics, of which our microdosing research is one.
