Dear colleagues

Tripping through the Doors of Perception? Psychedelic lessons from the past


Professor Erika Dyck, Canada Research Chair in the History of Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan


Abstract:
Psychedelics fell from medical grace nearly half a century ago, but recent activity suggests that some researchers have ‘high hopes’ for their return. Over sixty years ago Albert Hofmann at Sandoz Pharmaceutical Laboratories in Switzerland first synthesized LSD and personally experienced it effects in 1943. Over the next 15 years over a thousand articles appeared in medical and scientific publications using LSD. By the mid-1960s LSD research ground to halt as it had become synonymous with countercultural activities, hedonism, and drug abuse. Recently that situation has started to change. A new generation of researchers has taken up the torch with an eye to resurrecting the psychedelic science of the 1950s, particularly along the paths of addiction research and palliative care. Will this new group of enthusiasts be more nimble, or have cultural circumstances changed sufficiently to embrace psychedelics anew?
