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)
