WilcoW1 karma

I love this kind of research! As you probably know in the 1960s research was done with LSD on children (aged around 10) that had early onset schitzofrenia (which i believe is now called autism?) and it seemed to have a positive effect over the course of multiple sessions (around 10 sessions). Children in the study who were at first "living in their own world" later got the need of human attention and were able to attend school.

You mentioned psilocybin having a bad effect on people with schitzofrenia or the risk of getting it. Do you think psilocybin could have the same effects as these studies from the 60s? or do you think LSD doesnt have the same effect with regard to (early onset) schitzofrenia.

And what do you think of these studies from the 60s anyways?
