Event Details

The featured speaker for February's Meeting is Dr.Frederick Barrett. He will provide up-to-date information about the acute and persisting effects of psilocybin in healthy and patient populations.




As the psychedelic renaissance blooms, many experimental laboratories and medical schools around the world are joining in to contribute to our knowledge of how psychedelic drugs affect the mind and brain. We will discuss recent findings from controlled laboratory studies with psilocybin, and review preliminary data from a number of studies at Johns Hopkins investigating the effects of psilocybin in healthy volunteers as well as those with mood disorders.




Biography: 

Frederick BarrettDr. Barrett earned his PhD in cognitive neuroscience at U.C. Davis, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in behavioral pharmacology, studying the neuropsychopharmacology of psilocybin with Dr. Roland Griffiths at Johns Hopkins University. He uses music and pharmacological interventions, along with behavioral measures, computerized testing, and brain imaging techniques, to explore the neural basis of emotional functioning and altered states of consciousness. His current research focuses on the acute and long-term effects of classic and atypical hallucinogens on cognition, emotion, and brain function.

MSSF Logo       

Mycological Society of San Francisco  

The Mycological Society of San Francisco (MSSF) was founded in 1950 to promote the understanding and enjoyment of mushrooms and other fungi. Our mission has since expanded to preserve mycological habitats and to promote and maintain the rights of the general public to collect mushrooms for study and recreational purposes on public lands. 

The MSSF hosts a myriad of activities throughout the year. Our general meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month from September through May (the locally active mushroom season). Featured speakers present on a wide range of topics.


BAAM Logo       

Bay Area Applied Mycology

Bay Area Applied Mycology is a collective of environmentally minded mushroom enthusiasts who are seeking to enrich the environment and community through the cultivation & application of fungi, plants and bacteria to problems facing the environment and humanity. BAAM also seeks to educate and empower people and communities; by putting simple cultivation strategies and access to lab space within reach of the average home gardener, urban farmer or mushroom fan.
