Psilocybin research has been increasing rapidly over the last number of years, with many clinical trials in progress using psilocybin for a range of conditions including addictions, eating disorders, headaches, anxiety and depression. Psilocybin has also been evaluated for enhancing abilities like creativity and resilience. More studies have been published recently that improve our understanding of how a single dose of psilocybin works in the brain to facilitate long lasting positive benefits. One of the more interesting and promising ideas being discussed in the research world is the apparent ability for psilocybin to promote neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity refers to the brain’s ability to change its structure and function over time, and in the case of psilocybin, adaptively to promote overall wellbeing and enhanced resilience. Below is a brief summary of interesting and promising research that has been published with psilocybin over the last one to two years from randomized clinical trials to naturalistic use surveys and animal studies.
