I could've told them that, but it's nice to see some actual studies being done on this stuff, I've always wanted to understand the science behind it.

LOL at them suggesting psilocybin was what gave LSD its hallucinogenic properties. LSD can do that just fine on its own... it is a chemical, not a substance that contains chemicals that make you trip like a mushroom.

Psilocybin = psychoactive component of mushrooms. LSD = lysergic acid diethylimide 25, aka LSD.

The two have nothing to do with each other besides both being hallucinogens. One is not found inside the other.

"LOL at them suggesting psilocybin was what gave LSD its hallucinogenic properties."

I've read and re-read the article and cannot find such misinformation. You either misread or you simply didn't read.

They have since corrected it.

OH! NO! NO! NO!!!

There's no way in hell that you could get me in an MRI machine while I'm on psychedelics! Those things are anxiety inducers for even the sober mind.

I would give it a go......... in the name of science obviously lol

I didn't even think about that... man, that would be quite a trip. Probably seems like you are in there forever.

I bet the people were in the MRI machine thinking crazy $hit like "When I get out of here... what will be left of the world?"

And... if any of them watched the Walking Dead/26 Days Later... even a tiny thought bubbling up of "zombies" would immediately convince you that an outbreak was occurring during your MRI.
