Psychedelia – More Than Just Groovy
Did you know meditation can change our senses and hypnotic suggestions can help break automatic habits? Dr Vince Polito delves into the latest findings from the frontiers of psychedelic science, and explores how new technologies such as virtual reality and brain stimulation are being used to alter consciousness in the lab.
Dr Vince Polito is an award-winning researcher and research fellow at Macquarie University. He specialises in psychedelic science and explores what we can learn about ourselves and minds from experiencing altered states of consciousness. He’s giving a talk on August 15 called ‘Science at the Edge of Consciousness’ as part of the Sydney Science Festival.
