“I am interested in elucidating neural mechanisms of newly-appointed therapeutics such as psychedelics or cannabinoids as well as understanding the mechanisms and function of synaptic plasticity in relation to these drugs. Research questions I am interested in include:

– “In what ways does the mechanism of neuroplasticity promoted by MDMA differ from that produced by other psychedelics (e.g.: psilocybin) and/or “non-therapeutic” drugs (e.g.: cocaine)?”

– “What are the long-term neural effects of regular psychedelic therapy (e.g. Ketamine infusions)?”

-“Do/how do minor cannabinoids and other phytochemicals such as terpenes interact with D-9-THC or each other at the neurological level to exert therapeutic effects?” “
