Exploring the neurobiological mechanisms of ketamine, psychedelics, and other rapid antidepressants

The recent development of novel, fast acting, and durable antidepressant treatments such as Ketamine, Brexanolone, and Psilocybin has disrupted our view of the neuroscience and treatment of mood disorders. Our focus is research into the basic and translational science of how these drugs work.
