Understanding psychedelic neuro effects
Kernel & Cybin announced pilot results from a feasibility study evaluating Kernel's quantitative neuroimaging technology, Flow, to measure cortical hemodynamics of the brain while experiencing ketamine. Kernel Founder/CEO Bryan Johnson volunteered as the first pilot participant in the study.
We observed changes in functional connectivity that are consistent with current scientific research on the effects of ketamine on brain activity. (Scheidegger et al. 2012; Zacharias et al. 2019)
Flow can measure neuro effects longitudinally (weeks or months)
Flow can robustly measure a ketamine induced state
Safe & Reliable
Flow can be worn during an altered state of consciousness
We're looking forward to utilizing their cutting-edge hardware to expand our understanding of what human minds look like when playing games at a high level, and ultimately using that understanding to push the boundaries of what people think is even possible.

Providing Patients With Better Data On Pain
I am thrilled to join forces with Bryan Johnson and the Kernel team to jointly study the effect of AppliedVR's FDA-authorized, VR-based program on the brains of patients with chronic pain.
