Wouldn't it be great if we could try to raise some funds to get one a knowledgable UK representative to go to dinner with these researchers. It's  [ch8356]1000 to get someone there.

We have been following this research for some time and have had occasions to meet with and have continued discussions with these researchers. Indeed, enjoying lunches, dinners and drinks with many of them.

the next occasion is

Breaking Convention 2015 The 3rd International Conference on Psychedelic Consciousness London. July 10-12, 2015

I'm up for contributing towards a token gesture of support for the project.

Great to hear you're in touch with them. I donated straight away but would happily contribute to a pool to get a clusterhead to that dinner

Failure to fund LSD test is ‘worst kind of science censorship’

The Times

http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/science/article4372253.ece

Professor Nutt who is based at Imperial College, London, has led work on the worldÂ’s first brain scans of people on LSD-25, a potent psychedelic drug that scientists believe could combat depression, alcoholism, nicotine addiction and crippling headaches

Here is an interesting one-

Two of the study participants had serious migraine cycles during

the years before treatment. At the LTFU, participant #3 reported

that his migraine cycles and the accompanying pain had been

significantly reduced for a number of months after the LSD treatments.

Participant #12 reported no migraine in the 12 months up

to the LTFU. This incidental observation may be an indication to

support some recent studies (Sewell et al., 2006).

Edit: Can't get the Michigan link to work but it googles ok.
