The acid test: Here's what LSD does to your brain

Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities

Description

A good trip on the hallucinogenic drug LSD can be, advocates claim, life-changing. Shapes and colours flash before your eyes. Time and space warp. Everything is unreal, but somehow more real.

But a bad trip can be deeply terrifying, as users are assailed with dark visions and feel gripped by anxiety and paranoia.
