Manesh Girn is a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at McGill University specifically focusing on psychedelic research. Not only do we cover a variety of topics around the current psychedelic research, Manesh also shares his vision for the future of psychedelics and some of his philosophy on life and mental well-being.
During the ep, we talk about mystical experiences (from the research perspective), the brain under a psychedelic, psychedelics for physical healing, and what he feels is currently being underserved in the current psychedelic research.
From beginning to the very end, this conversation is fun, engaging and informative.
